Considering some spots are getting snow in June, it’s never too early to look at cold weather gear. One of those spots is Colorado, which happens to be where The Warmfront front-only base layer comes from. Each one’s handmade to order from a soft technical fleece. It has an adjustable collar, letting you wrap it around snugly to keep cold air out. They make it for men and women in a couple versions, and you can customize it…
The collar wraps around your neck and secures with Velcro so you can get the fit just right. It’s a “no snag” Velcro, too, so it won’t snag or pill your delicate cycling jersey if the grabby bits are exposed. Rip it off when things heat up and it’ll roll up small enough to fit in a jersey pocket.
The Warmfront Ultralight uses Polartec Power Dry waffle fleece and retails for $24. The more wind- and waterproof Warmfront Kosileg retails for $29 and uses Polartec Wind Pro to add more warmth without adding thickness.
