    Leave a Comment

    With sub zero temperatures and snow enveloping the country a good set of thermal underwear is a necessity to keep you warm and dry if venturing outside. Sub Zero manufacture performance warm clothing in a range of weights and styles to allow you to work rest and play in the coldest of conditions.

    Factor 1 Thermal Underwear Base Layer

    Factor 1 garments by Sub Zero are one of the most technical range of base layers available. They are manufactured from a lightweight rib 100% Polyamide fabric designed to be worn next to the body. Each fibre is impregnated with a hydrophilic finish that transports moisture away from the skin and disperses it over a large area of the outer layer of the fabric so it can easily evaporate. This provides a warm dry micro-climate next to the skin that gives you greater performance and activity longevity. An ideal thermal base layer system for cycling, walking & hiking, skiing, running, golf and climbing.

    Factor 1 Plus Thermal Underwear Base Layer

    Factor 1 Plus thermal base layers by Sub Zero are manufactured using the latest seamless technology. Instead of the traditional cut and sew technique for adding features, the machines we employ can knit in the desired attributes without seams. This eliminates rub points and possible stitch weakness in the garment. The Factor 1 Plus range of base layers are produced from lightweight 100% Polyamide yarn, that produces a super soft fabric that is easy to care for and long lasting. In addition, each fibre is impregnated with a hydrophilic finish that transports moisture away from the skin and disperses it over a large area of the outer layer of the fabric so it can easily evaporate. This provides a warm dry micro-climate next to the skin that gives you greater performance and activity longevity. An ideal thermal base layer system for cycling, walking & hiking, skiing, running, golf and climbing.

    Factor 2 Thermal Underwear Mid Layer

    Factor 2 heavyweight thermal mid layer range has been uniquely developed by Sub Zero over the past 15 years. We have specially developed and manufactured our double sided Factor 2 fabric with a harder wearing anti-pill outer surface and a super soft brushed fleece inner. Factor 2 thermal underwear mid layers can be worn on their own or on top of our Factor 1 thermal underwear base layers when the temperature plummets.

    The two main functions of Factor 2 garments is to transport perspiration away from your skin, or the surface of Factor 1 base layer garments, to its outer surface to disperse. At the same time the inner brushed fleece surface traps warm air to insulate the body keeping it dry, cosy and a comfortable even temperature. Each fibre is impregnated with a hydrophilic finish that transports moisture away from the skin and disperses it over a large area of the outer layer of the fabric so it can easily evaporate.

    A further advantage of the fabric is that it does not compress under pressure. This is essential if it is being worn under a dry suit as your insulating layer stays the same thickness no matter how deep you dive.

    The Factor 2 thermal mid layer range is regarded as one of the warmest undergarments available on the market today.
