Why we chose the Eivy, Ice Cold Base Layers: Warm, breathable, cheetah print
Price: (Top) £55, (Bottoms) £47
The brand Eivy was created by snowboarder and fashion designer Anna Vister, during a season in St Anton. Anna’s idea was to create skiing and snowboarding baselayers with a ‘streetstyle’ aesthetic that were long-lasting. As Eivy put it, they aim for their products to be ‘multiFUNctional’.
The Ice Cold base layers are available in sizes XXS through to XXL for both bottom and tops, and there’s a range of 15 different colours and patterns available. Be sure to head over to the Eivy website to check out the pretty out there designs when you get a chance. For the Ski 100, we got hold of the pretty wild ‘Cheetah’ print because who, quite frankly, wants another boring set of black baselayers? Most styles are also available in a ribbed design, something we are seeing become more popular. An incredibly comfortable and cosy setup? Yes, just a bit.
The fabric here is made up from 77% GRS recycled polyester and 23% spandex, which is moisture wicking and fast drying. Eivy has done well to ensure the quality is up to standard. We’re big fans of the 4-way stretch. The seams on this product are all flatlock which is important as it prevents chafing and rubbing.
“Make being cosy from sunrise to sunset a reality”
The Icecold “gaiter top’ has an integrated fleece-lined neck warmer that will have you ready for both ice cold days and endless winter journeys. Make being cosy from sunrise to sunset a reality, in other words. What else? Well, those integrated thumb loops ensure the sleeves don’t roll up on you. If you’re all about those chilly morning starts, for example, you might find this reassuring.
