COOL is a high-tech and lightweight fabric that provides excellent cooling. The fabric is based on a hexa-continuous filament, a uniquely patterned construction with six channels that effectively pull perspiration vapor off the body to keep it cool. COOL is very soft and smooth against the skin, and stays comfortable during the entire workout.
COOL MESH is a lightweight mesh fabric that provides excellent ventilation and cooling. The fabric is based on a hexa-continuous filament, a uniquely patterned construction with six channels that effectively pull perspiration vapor off the body to keep it cool. COOL MESH is soft and smooth against the skin, and stays comfortable during the entire workout. We use this fabric in full mesh garments as well as in hot spots for enhanced ventilation.
COOL MESH SUPERLIGHT is a lightweight mesh fabric combines a six-channeled fiber and a mesh construction with large openings to provide superior ventilation and cooling. This superlight mesh fabric has a structured surface that allows air-channels to form between the skin and the garment, enhancing ventilation even more. We use this fabric in full-mesh garments as well as in hot spots for enhanced ventilation.
ACTIVE EXTREME allows athletes to perform optimally in fair and cold conditions. It is made of thin, lightweight and elastic micro polyester that is channel-stitched with a combination of two high-tech fibers. Six-channeled fibers against the skin accelerate the moisture transport, which cools the body down, while hollow fibers on the outside offer insulation as well as transport of moisture to the next layer. ACTIVE EXTREME is odor resistant and keeps the body fresh during intense workouts.
ACTIVE CLASSIC is our time-tested and classical underwear fabric. It is made of air-channeled polyester that expels excess heat away from the body while filament yarns transport the moisture, creating an optimal microclimate for endurance in fair and cold conditions. The channel-stitched polyester features two kinds of fibers for fantastic moisture transport and a soft touch. ACTIVE is arguably a living legend among functional underwear and one of the most trusted baselayers for optimal performance.
ACTIVE WINDSTOPPER® is made of thin, lightweight and elastic micro polyester and Gore Windstopper panels. The Gore Windstopper panels are placed in exposed areas and move individually, providing wind protection and freedom of movement simultaneously. ACTIVE WINDSTOPPER® provides optimal body-temperature management throughout any workout in fair, cold and windy conditions.
WARM is a lightweight fabric developed for intense activities in cold conditions. A 3D-knit construction with hollow fibers and bodymapped climate zones keep the body warm where it’s needed the most. The fabric is made of lightweight and warming thermal yarn for optimal thermoregulation. WARM provides excellent body-temperature management and keeps athletes warm and dry during workouts in cold conditions.
WARM CIRCULAR KNIT WOOL keeps athletes warm and comfortable in really cold conditions. The circular knitting enables us to place bodymapped structures exactly where we want them. Furthermore, the circular knitting provides seamless construction pieces that minimize chafing and optimize comfort.
The fabric contains 76 percent Merino wool, which is very high percentage for circular knitted functional garments. In order to provide optimal warmth, the fabric comes with wool on the inside, closest to the skin.
Craft Functional Base Layer
Learn more about Craft's baselayer technology
REFINED OVER NEARLY FOUR DECADES AND ENGINEERED TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS, CRAFT’S BASELAYER IS IN A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN.
Craft’s functional baselayer is designed to be worn next to the skin. The structure of the fabrics and the stitching techniques interact to effectively transport moisture away from the skin and distribute it on the outside, where it either evaporates or is passed on to the next layer. For optimal performance and comfort, Craft’s baselayer should always be worn underneath your outer layers, regardless of weather conditions.
Our range of functional baselayer consists of three categories - STAY COOL, BE ACTIVE and KEEP WARM - complementing each other. With three categories, we offer a baselayer range with unique performance characteristics for intense physical activities in all conditions. Consult the graph to see which category works best for what conditions.
