Best Womens Base Layers of 2017

  • Everyone needs a base layer to keep them warm and dry under the outer shell. This list of base layers will keep you dry, warm and comfy all day long. This list offers different styles and functionality depending on what you are looking for.

  • Volcom Challenger Pullover

    If you hired a snowboarding stylist, they would suggest this pullover as a go-to base layer. The close-fitting soft stretch blend gives you enough room to layer and move around. Moisture-wicking performance and stretchy mesh side vents keep you from overheating underneath all your layers. The fabric features static heathered coloring, breathable comfort, and memory fit qualities thanks to the nylon/polyester/elastane Soft Stretch blend. Cowl hood and extra-long cuffs with thumbholes cover your extremities in the sporty, stylish way you would expect. Wear the mark of the beast mode with the Circle Stone branding on the front. At the end of the day, stash the pullover in the mesh drawstring bag it comes with.

  • Volcom Geronimo Pant

    Get all snug for a day on the mountain with layerable leggings. Volcom’s Soft Stretch blend (nylon/polyester/elastane) fits like a second skin so you can get your boarding pants on over the top. Moisture-wicking fabric and side mesh vents regulate temperature from the inside out. The fitted waistband leaves extra room for layers, doesn’t leave telltale outlines under your clothes, and doesn’t bunch up when you bend over. Because the last thing you want to be doing is pulling them up all day. If you want to make sure your car key stays put while you’re doing tricks, hide it away in the inner waistband pocket. After you’ve been in them all day, let the pants air dry inside their very own mesh bag.

  • Airblaster Womens Ninja Suit

    Be careful--this bodysuit might tempt you into wearing it as onesie pajamas! It goes on easy thanks to the full-length chest zipper. Not a single inch of your body is left uncovered with this suit, except your feet and face, so no draft can sneak inside. Don’t worry though, there’s a waist zipper that goes almost all the way around so you can still use the restroom. Slip your superhero cape--er--snowboarding suit over the top and practice your ninja moves: there isn’t an angle the four-way stretch material can’t handle. When you’ve worked up a sweat, the moisture-wicking properties of the polyester/Lycra material lift off any dampness immediately. The form-fitting seven-panel hood even comes with a ponytail hole and the extra-long cuffs come with thumbholes. Stealth mode, activate!

  • Burton Womens [ak] Power Stretch Hood

    Preserve your snow bunny status in this cute hooded pullover. You don’t have to sacrifice fashion for function--the chic designs paired with serious athletic properties make the look effortless. Polartech® polyester/Lycra fabric holds in every shred of heat in sub-zero conditions by insulating, blocking wind, and wicking sweat. The extra-long cut keeps your lower back covered when you bend forward. Thumbhole cuffs, softlock seams and Power Stretch® Hood make it simple to pile the rest of the layers over the top.

  • Burton Womens [ak] Power Stretch Pant

    Create a Power Couple by pairing the Power Stretch Hood above with these legit pants. Like the pullover, the pants move right along with the body so your ride feels unrestricted. The Polartech® fabric stretches close to the skin so wind can’t penetrate. At the same time, the breathable fabric keeps sweat from giving you the chills. The contoured waistband has a built-in credit card pocket so you can carry the bare necessities. Softlock seams lay flat against the skin so you’ll forget they’re even there.

  • 686 Women’s Tech T

    Feel like you’re lounging whether you’re actually lounging or giving it your all on the mountain. The 93/7 polyester/spandex jersey material feels comfy either way. Four-way stretch allows you to maneuver without restriction. Meanwhile, the colorblock raglan sleeves provide an athletic fit across the shoulders. Choose an oversized sublimated graphic print in a mystical design that vibes with you: Geo Palm, Owl or Tarot. No matter what you choose, the style will transcend from the street to the slopes.

  • 686 Women’s Bliss Base Layer Bottom

    Only you will know what kind of secrets are hidden underneath your clothes, like the design on this base layer. Falling to your knees on the dreamcatcher patches will feel less like a wipeout and more like a spiritual experience. Polyester/spandex ensures the best range of motion so you feel unstoppable. Between the brushed back jersey and the soft flatlock seams, your lower half gets the VIP treatment. Stirrup bottom leaves no gap between your pants and socks so snow can’t sneak in. Yoga waistband puts the pants in their place and keeps them there.

  • Volcom Eclipse RPET Crew

    Start at the very beginning with a base layer that keeps the chill from reaching your bones. Inside the barely-there polyester, the crewneck feels silken against the skin. The moisture-wicking properties also give you permission to let off your steam. Even cooler than that though, the fabric is made of certified REPREVE® polyester yarn that can be traced to its recycled origins--disposable plastic bottles. That’s right, this layered piece is made out of recycled plastic bottles! Slip your gloves over the extra-long thumbhole cuffs so no skin is exposed. When you’ve shredded all you can shred, pack the crew shirt back in its breathable mesh stash bag.

  • Volcom Dawn RPET Pant

    Pair these pants with the Eclipse crewneck above and you’ll be clothed in plastic bottles from head to foot! These pants are also made of REPREVE® polyester from recycled water bottles. The stretchy polyester hugs the body so you can pull your boarding pants over the top. You’ll feel spoiled by the silk like feeling on the inside. Flat fitted waistband stays put and moves with your body. The pants come in their own separate mesh bag so you can air them out before your next mountain run.

  • Burton Women’s Active Top

    When it comes to base layers, you want something lightweight that can still handle the elements. And that’s exactly what you get with this athletic pullover. The polyester/spandex fabric brings active stretch and max wicking properties to the party ride. Breathable, quick-dry features and a stink-proof finish make you feel ladylike and hardcore at the same time. Soft brushed back feels luxurious against the skin while the Softlock seams eliminate chafing and seam bulges. Thumbhole cuffs, hood and face cover go over and above to extend the coverage.

  • Burton Womens Active Legging

    If you’re getting the Active Top, you’ll want to get the matching Active Leggings to complete and balance the look. Form-fitting polyester/spandex fabric springs into action as you bend, turn, and pop. Meanwhile, the brushed-back finish feels like pj’s against the skin. The feminine contoured waistband features a built-in stash pocket to hold your keys and cash. Not just for snowboarding, the breathable, stink-proof pants fit right in at the gym or the living room, so you can get more than your money’s worth. In fact, we’re convinced you’ll like these better than your yoga pants.
