With Airbase’s big air pockets, you have nothing contacting the majority of your skin surface, while adjacent polypropylene wicks moisture, so you always feel dry and warm.
EARLY SEASON LAYERS:
Designed for a close-to-the-body feel with a four way stretch material that won’t hold you back.
With a water resistant, yet-extremely breathable membrane and 4-way stretch, mid weight layers provide excellent warmth-to-weight ratio to keep you comfortable without weighing you down.
Technical, versatile, lightweight, and built to last. Made of 4-way stretch polyester with a DWR finish, providing a close riding, athletic fit with a cut that gives unrestrained freedom of movement.
COLD WEATHER GEAR:
Featuring 80gm Primaloft insulation, packable into its inside-chest pocket, breathable, and touting a superior warmth-to-weight ratio, Eberlestock cold weather gear is built to perform.
Four-way stretch fabric with a 40K+ breathability rating and 20K+ waterproofing will keep you dry when it rains -- and will not cause it to rain condensation inside the jacket when you are climbing up a mountain.
So I got this and thought fish-net why the hell not the Europeans do it (worked with their militaries). This stuff is awesome....I give it a 4.8 stars bc the sleeve material is so not bulky that slipping a light merino shirt over the top it bunched on my forearm and I had to fish for it. I’m going to sew in some gutted 550 cord for thumb loops just for this (probably make em long enough to clip mitts to so when I have to fumble with a god I don’t have to put a glove in my mouth or shove it in my F1 hip belt)
I used it in MS, damp and chilly, walked to a tree about a mile then had a difficult climb (meaning I sweat a bunch). All I did was zip down the 1/4 zip on my merino and oh the freshness. And fast. I wasn’t wet for the remainder of the sit and didn’t require the outer layer I’d thought bc of the insulating fishnet I had. Wow, gifts for all serious hunters in the family. Plus this stuff is super packable and I had washed it and dried. Seasons will tell about durability but I can say if it’s anything like every piece of Eberlestock gear I own...it’s gonna last! Thanks Eberlestock for fantabstic products for the pursuit of adventure in the homeland and on the battle field. You guys rock.
I really like these, although they’re a bit pricey. I’m of the “buy once cry once” school, they’re worth every penny!!
I engage in a number of strenuous activities in Montana during the winter including skiing, and hiking. The balance of warmth and sweating is always a battle. The Airbase system has done a great job delivering this balanced warmth. One VERY important note however; I wear an XL in almost everything I wear and ordered an XL set of Airbase tops and bottoms. They both fit well EXCEPT the top was FAR too short for a typical XL person’s frame. For a base layer like this, if anything, one should error on having the top be a bit long. The Airbase shortness in the top makes it very difficult to use effectively.

This is a great product. And works as described. Very happy with my purchase
