How to Choose the Right Baselayer?

Craft is a pioneer in performance baselayer and offers functional garments that provide excellent body-temerature managment during exercise in any condition. The fabric structures and knitting techniques interact to efficiently transport moisture away from the skin and distriubute it on the outside, where it evaporates or is passed on to the next layer for optimal performance and comfort.

The Craft Principle - don't break the chain.

Since 1977 we have been actively involved in the research and development of ventilation and moisture dispersal properties for different fabrics. The fruit of these efforts is the Craft Principle, our way of providing functional training and competition wear that ensures the best body micro-climate (the temperature and moisture conditions closest to the body) for optimal performance.
An intensive training session will result in the body producing a considerable amount of sweat. This is just how it should be and a confirmation that you are pushing your limits. If you are not wearing functional clothes, the sweat will remain in place and block the pores, causing your body heat to rise. Eventually, the clothes will turn into a damp, cold and heavy "envelope", relentlessly hampering your performance.
If you are wearing functional clothes, however, the skin will stay dry and you will be able to perform at an ideal working temperature. Crafts"s functional clothes, in up to three layers, create a perfect microclimate and provide the basis for optimal performance. Each layer is equally important and complements the rest of the chain.

Baselayer

Baselayer that efficiently transports moisture away from the skin and distributes it on the outside of the garment, where it either evaporates or is passed on to the next layer. For optimal performance and comfort, craft baselayer should always be worn underneath your outer layers, regardless of weather conditions.

Midlayer

Craft midlayer provides insulation and warmth while transporting moisture and excess heat to the next layer or into the surrounding air. When the thermometer creeps downward, this layer enables you to retain valuable body heat without reducing your freedom of movement.

Protection Layer

The third and outermost layer is your shield against the elements and provides comfort and performance no matter the conditions. Transcending the laws of logic, craft protection layer protects against rain, wind and cold at the same time as it releases surplus heat and moisture from the layers underneath.
