Sub Zero Factor 1 Plus Long Sleeve Zip Turtle Thermal Base Layer is a new addition to the award winning range.
New developments in seamless knitting technology have enable Sub Zero to add a lightweight 18cm (7″) long zip to a garment based on the ever popular Factor 1 Plus Long Sleeve top design. This new base layer top features an innovative seamless body construction that incorporates stretch rib zones for enhanced support and waffle zones for increased thermal efficiency. During the dyeing process, a hydrophilic treatment is pressure injected in to the yarn, increasing the wicking rate of the fabric, allowing much greater control of perspiration. The stand-up double thickness turtle will protect your neck during outer activities – an area of the body that is often left exposed when wearing other base layers. The zip used in the turtle is lightweight to prevent ‘zip ripple’ when done up, and the fabric chin guard will protect your face from zip puller rub. If you do get too hot when wearing the base layer then lowering the zip will give extra aeration (t also helps the wearer to get the garment over the head) . Integrated thumb holes in the cuff of the sleeves protect your hands on cooler days and allows you to wear snug outer jackets without your sleeves riding up.
These new Sub Zero thermal zip turtle base layers are ideal for outdoor activities in the autumn and winter where extra protection of the neck is required, such as when winter walking, cycling, hiking and climbing. For greater insulation in the depths of winter, why not try this Zip Turtle base layer with the Sub Zero Factor 2 mid layer range. Used in combination, this layering system will keep you snug, dry and ready for your winter adventure.
The new Factor 1 Plus Zip Turtle range currently comes in two colours, black and aqua blue, and in sizes XSmall -XXLarge.
