KIDS' SNOWBOARD BASE LAYERS & THERMALS
Snowboarding can be physically demanding and the exertion creates sweat. Children's base layers are designed to move this moisture away from skin and keep them dry and comfortable. This process is called wicking, and it is an essential part of any base layer system. Synthetic kids' base layers use capillary action to draw sweat away from the skin allowing evaporative cooling. Merino kids' base layers use natural fine-grade wool to achieve the same thing.
Merino base layers for boys and girls are particularly effective as children's thermal underwear in the cool or cold conditions found when snowboarding. It is especially important for kids' winter thermals to have high performance and wicking properties, because sweat can be very uncomfortable when it cools during inactive phases. Therefore avoid cotton base layers at all costs – they will hold sweat next to your child's skin, feeling clammy while they're hot and then cooling rapidly when they stop.
A fully-functioning kids' thermal base layer provides the foundation for an effective clothing system so take your pick from our extensive range of performance boys' and girls' snowboard base layers from top brands snowboarding brands.
