CRAFT WOMEN'S BASE LAYERS
The Craft Pro Zero Extreme Women's Long Sleeve Crew might just be the perfect base layer. It's hard not to kvell for Craft base layers too much. Their multi-season and multi-sport uses make them just about the most cost effective item you can buy. By merging Craft's two flagship fabrics, the Pro Zero and the Pro Cool, the Pro Zero Extreme combines the moisture wicking genius of the Pro Zero with the moisture transference of the Pro Cool. This means that as you sweat, the Zero fibers pull the moisture away from your body while the Cool fibers pull the damp to the outer layer of the shirt. Once the moisture reaches the outer layer, the weave of the Cool fiber promotes air circulation away from the skin which dries the fabric without cooling you off at the same time. ThePro Zero Extreme also incorporates an antimicrobial treatment which prevents fabric odor from setting in.
However clever the fabric combination may be, the real strength of this base layer is in how utilitarian it is. The super thin, super light fabric is extremely elastic and will conform to the curves of your body without pulling at the arm pits, breasts, hips etc. That means that, unlike undershirts that are anatomically cut to fit properly only when you are sitting on the bike, the Pro Zero Extreme fits perfectly snuggly whether you are in the drops, on the bus, or cross-country skiing. It is so form-fitting that you will be able to wear it even under your most elegant turtleneck sweater ensuring you can be warm and chic at the same time. The flat lock seams will not dig into your skin or cause any sort of irritation. And whether you are cycling, running, skiing or walking your kids to school on a cold December morning, this base layer will always form the foundation of your wardrobe.
The Craft Pro Zero Extreme Women's Long Sleeve Crew is machine washable and you can even throw it in the dryer to take the damp out directly after washing it. It comes in Black and is available in sizes Small through Large.
