One of skiing’s dirty secrets: your stinky base layer. Today’s high-performance materials wick away moisture, but they stubbornly retain the eau de you after a sweaty day on the slopes, even after repeat washings. Not anymore. Specifically designed to sanitize workout wear, U.S. Ski Team–endorsed Win Detergent ($7) slays the smell at the microfiber level. Your gondola-mates will thank you.

Patagonia Cap 3 Zip-Neck Base Layer
The Patagonia Kids' Capilene 3 Zip-Neck Base Layer adds fast-wicking insulation to your child's winter wear, so he stays warmer during the winter months. Gusseted underarms allow for great freedom of movement to allow your kid to really follow through with a snowball fast pitch, and flat seams decrease bunching with other layers. The Capilene 3 top also uses 64% recycled fibers to give your kid a head start on thinking environmentally.
$34.00 - $35.00
It’s hard to find more fervent brand loyalists than Patagonia wearers, many of whom swear by their Capilene base layers.

Made from recycled soda bottles, the Cap 3 zip-neck is Patagonia’s fastest-wicking fabric. Honeycomb construction helps trap warmth, but the zip neck allows for climate control.

Essentials base layers
A veritable second skin, a good base layer is your first line of defense against the elements. We help you find the best fit and feel.

Whatever you do, don’t call it Underwear. That term oversimplifies what might be the most important piece of your ski wardrobe. Today’s base layers are more sophisticated than ever, with countless fiber, construction, fit and weight options. Other layers can be removed, added or adjusted to accommodate climate changes, but your base layer stays put all day, so finding the right one is crucial. We suggest you invest in a few sets—one for warm, one for cold and one for downright bitter days.
