Why wear a base layer?
The base layer, also known as the inner layer, helps:
. absorb perspiration and transfer it to the outside. Your skin stays dry and your body does not get cold
. retain body heat; even more so when the product is close-fitting.
. provide an additional barrier against bad weather
. keep your football shirt dry, even when you're running hard.
Playing with a technical base layer keeps you on the pitch for longer.

What our design team has to say
We're always listening to our users, and as a result we've crafted a product that meets the needs of more experienced players. In the heart of the action, the pace of play picks up and the intensity varies more. Clothing must be ultra breathable to regulate your body temperature during the most intense phases of play. Your base layer should also be close-fitting in order to quickly absorb perspiration while keeping your body warm.
Our field tests in a climate chamber
Our range of base layers was tested in a climate chamber with a group of 30 athletes in January 2020. The climate chamber allows us to perform all tests in the same climatic conditions (temperature, wind). Our certification department uses a strict protocol to assess the classification of the garment's ability to keep your skin dry, retain body heat and prevent shivering. 1.Keepdry 500
