Arctic Eco-Sno Making Better Base Layers

Arctic Eco-Sno is an Aussie brand making better base layers that are snug, styly, sustainable and won’t make you itch and scratch like a lot of others do.

Base layers do NOT have to be boring and Arctic Eco-Sno’s styly thermal tops and leggings certainly aren’t!

You can cruise straight from the slopes to the après action in these boys and girls – they look hot.

Arctic Eco-Sno Sno-Camo thermal step up style, snugness and sustainability

The thoughtful extras in the design lie the roll-up soft lined neck warmer keep you toasty outside while allowing a roll down inside. Arctic Eco-Sno call this a a protective face and neck gaiter, and it sure does the job.

“I’ve never had a thermal that does that – I love it!” says our reviewer Carmen.

“I can just wear these as a styly winter top inside never mind for skiing.”

Indeed you can. But of course the primary purpose of a base layer IS to keep you snug outside in the cold yet not overheating when you are charging hard on the slopes. Using certified recycled fabrics offers an ultra-soft, second-skin feel, combined with exceptional moisture wicking, highly breathable, lightweight properties.

Many people find even a small amount of wool will casue irritation, and Arctic Eco-Sno co-founder Morgan was one. She applied her personal challenge of finding a thermal base layer that didn’t cause sensitivity, and the brand focused on using a recycled fabric that ensured optimal comfort, warmth and protection in the extreme weather conditions.

It certainly does that in our recent experience testing a set of them.

For spring riding you may not need another layer

The exceptional 4-way stretch to fit all body types and shapes means you’ll never want to take this off. Arctic Eco-Sno Thermal Base Layer Leggings/Pants feature a high-rise, compressed waist band for women, and elasticated band for men that offers a secure and comfortable fit, 3/4 length finish with flat lock seams for no added layer friction, discomfort or irritation around the essential areas for all day comfort, and an uninterrupted riding experience.

Shred all day, then lose the jacket and mid-layer and party all night we say. In fact for spring (which can happen mid-winter at the snow downunder) you may find thermals and jacket enough.

Launched in 2019 by an Australian couple who share a passion for the snow, Arctic Eco-Sno has from day one been focused on offering sustainable thermal base layers. Co-founders Josh and Morgan launched the Arctic Eco-Sno brand with a focus on crafting sustainable snow wear that integrates recycled materials, with no sacrifice on performance, fit, or quality. The brand’s recent collection Motion Base Layers is designed for both men and women, and offers the snow community a thermal base layer set crafted from 78% recycled fabrics – think the equivalent of 22 post-consumer plastic bottles destined for landfill.

Who knew those plastic bottles could look so hot and be so useful?

Snow Action’s tester rates them a 10/10 for practicality, functionality and comfort. And make that an 11/10 for style! She rode & partied in the Sno Camo thermal top and leggings.

They also have some cool accessories like the Sherpa bucket hat and face & neck warmers.
