A good thermal base layer will run the fine line between keeping you warm, whilst preventing you from overheating and wicking sweat from the skin. This is quite a lot to ask from a 20 quid piece of clothing, but, in general, the Caratti Thermal Base Layer does a pretty decent job.

Caratti aren’t making any bold claims that their base layer is some sort of vast leap forward in breathable thermal technology. Indeed the information on Caratti’s website contains almost no information on the fabric whatsoever.
