Le Bent baselayer kit giveaway!
Next to ski boots I reckon the most important items of snow gear are your baselayers.
If you don’t know by now, a cotton t-shirt and some footy socks won’t cut it.
You need to go quality, you need to go Merino Wool and you need to go Le Bent.
Just lucky we’ve got a kit including baselayer crew, socks and balaclava to give away this week eh?
Comfort, fit, quality and functionality. Le Bent ticks all the boxes in their premium range and its why I wear their undergarments.
I gave the gear a thorough testing in both South Korea and Canada this year and it passed with flying colours.
It might be pretty obvious that a good test of gear is using it in actual conditions (ie skiing or snowboarding) , which I did quite successfully thanks for asking.
But for pure warmth try standing around for hours on end at night to see whether it stands up with you.
I did just that with the Le Bent gear down to -11 as I watched some our athletes kill it at the test events in Pyeongchang. I’m here to report it kept me toasty warm.
In the Canadian spring it was hovering around zero and the low digits most days and I found the underlayer crew great simply with a light jacket.
The secret is in the mix of materials. Merino wool is the bomb in terms of warmth, keeping odours out and is softer than other types of wool. Mixed in with rayon from bamboo it gets softer still. The crew literally feels like a regular tee, but one that is put together so much better.
But don’t just take my word for it. It’s why the likes of great Aussie athletes such as Jarryd Hughes and Russ Henshaw also choose Le Bent.
Be in it to win it folks – and check out the Le Bent website for the full range!
