Gear Review: Hot Chillys PeachSkins Performance Wear Base Layer

A fuzzy top that never smells.


In temps below 15°F, our testers loved the soft “peach-fuzz” finish on the inside of this polyester crew. And the relaxed fit and long torso make it exceptionally comfortable, says a tester who wore it on a 12-hour cat-skiing day. But the fabric doesn’t wick or dry quite as fast as the best, so it’s not ideal for highly aerobic or warm-weather activities. Green bonus: Testers reported that the eco-friendly antimicrobial treatment, which uses crustacean shells to control odor, worked better than average. $33 (top or bottom); 4.7 oz. (women’s L); men’s S-XXL, women’s XS-XL;
