Thermals / Base Layer

Hi,

I just moved from south Asia to Canada this year and this is going to be my first winter. Where do you recommend to buy thermal Top and pants?

Check out Uniqlo, don't forget socks (merino wool material) would be ideal.

Any sporting goods store such as sportchek, sporting life will have them. They will be a bit pricier. But if you want quality then those would do. Layering cheaper versions such as the one the person above mentioned from uniqlo will work just as well. They have different levels of warmth and are fairly cheap.

I use the polyester base layers from MEC for many years.

I get the base layers from Costco. We use them for skiing/boarding, skating. I have even winter camped with them at -17 with proper layers. If you are more hardcore or out for longer periods of time, I did find the Under Amour warmer, but about 4 times the price.

I got mine from Mountain Warehouse, merino wool. Less than $50 each and I love them. Durable.

Uiiqlo. I also have some made form helly hansen. The one from Uniqlo is more comfy for everyday use. They might not be as warm as HH, HH is way warmer but is also very tight and it gets a bit too hot when indoor. So unless you plan to stay outside and doing sports I think Uniqlo would be a better choice.

I wear Uniqlo Heattech pretty much everyday as a underlayer. Buy the regular and extra warm ones for those really cold days. Buy it so it fits snug. Wait for a sale though..I think it's $15 when it's on sale.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Uniqlo is probably your best bet. Some of the other suggestions are good but really meant for active use.

Right now from sport chek, you can get Helly Hansen 100% merino long underwear for $55 (EXPIRES TOMORROW).
Alternatively, you can get Uniqlo heattech ultra warm for $25.

Merino breaths better and doesn't smell. Best offers available at the moment.

When will the base layers be available from Costco and Uniqlo? By the time I look for them each year, they're sold out.

Thanks! Managed to order them, some sellers on Amazon are charging exhorbitant prices for the Paradox items (last year).

Don't forget a toque. Keep your head warm! Uniqlo is great as mentioned, The Bay during sales, Under Armour at sports stores and the Vaughan Mills outlet.
