Real Warmth Starts on the Inside With Baselayers

Layering is a great way to stay warm or cool. Some clothes are only suitable for small temperature ranges, but baselayers prepare you for anything. Public Lands has a great selection of baselayers that can create insulation between the cold outer world and your body.

People can still overheat while moving around in cool weather. If that happens, you can remove top layers to reveal your baselayers. When choosing the right baselayers for you, there are a few considerations to keep in mind.


Lightweight baselayers are great for warm or moderate weather. You should choose this style if you’re focused on moisture wicking. These are also ideal if your outer layer is already on the warm side — you don’t want to get too hot.

Midweight baselayers are a bit thicker, and they’re excellent for cold days. These are useful if you’ll be going back and forth between intense physical activity and stillness.

Heavyweight baselayers are the warmest of all. These are necessary for adventures in the extreme cold. Even without severely cold weather, heavyweight baselayers are a good choice when you won’t be mobile.

Use these while curling up in a sleeping bag. Many people wear lightweight baselayers under their heavyweight baselayers to get the perfect mix of comfort, moisture wicking, and warmth.


Baselayers all have different features. Some of the most popular features you can look for include the following:

  • Reflective films
  • Windproof fabric
  • Waterproof fabric
  • Breathable fabric
  • Moisture-wicking fabric

Baselayers are only useful if you have the right jacket to cover them, so remember to pick the right coat!
