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.
Everything from Eberlestock is Awesome
Believe it or not; Even with all the "holes", this Airbase Base Layer really does keep you cooler when it's real hot and warm when it gets a little cold. Use it here in Hawaii; When it's in the high 80's while out Upland Bird hunting and deer hunting/hiking; this base layer actually does keep you "cooler" than if you were only wearing a shirt. When it's a little cold in the early morning and after the sun goes down at higher elevations (3000 ft. +) and the temp. in in the mid 50's-low 60's it actually does keep you warm and comfortable when worn under a long sleeve hunting shirt. Be careful how you wash it; ideally hand wash, my first one shrank when washed in the washing machine. It is so lite that you "don't even know" that you are wearing it.
Fits great. Cant wait to test it out this fall.
In the backcountry no one will see you, use stuff that works better. These work better. Learned of the concept from Andy Kirkpatrick bigshot climber who recommends a Norwegian brand that you can't really get in the states. Glad that Eberlestock has a product just as good available here.
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.
