Scrub Base Layers And Undergarments
If you want to put together the ultimate layering system for the next long shift on your feet, then start by focusing on the foundation of that system — your underwear (aka “baselayer”). Comfort in your work environment starts with the layer that touches your skin. As long as a garment was designed to be a baselayer, you can assume that its fabric does a decent job of wicking moisture. If you don’t have a strong preference already, then consider the following attributes of base layer fabrics:
There are 3 considerations in choosing a baselayer:
- The material: Fabric is your most important decision. Whether you go with a synthetic or a natural one, you need it to wick well (move sweat off your skin).
- The weight: It’s pretty much “lightweight,” “midweight” or “heavyweight,” with thicker fabrics laying down a little extra warmth.
- The fit: A wicking fabric has to be in direct contact with your skin to do its job, so you want a snug fit.
