BASELAYERS FOR EVERY EFFORT STAY COOL BE ACTIVE Keep WARM Be ACTIVE Stay COOL KEEP WARM Craft is a pioneer in performance baselayers and offers functional garments that provide excellent body-temperature management during exercise in any condition. The fabric structures and knitting techniques interact to efficiently transport moisture away from the skin and distribute it on the outside, where it either evaporates or is passed on to the next layer for optimal performance and comfort. Our range of functional baselayer consists of the three categories Stay COOL, Be ACTIVE and Keep WARM. LOW INTENSITY HIGHINTENSITY EXTREME INTENSITY 30℃ 20℃ 10℃ 0℃ -10℃ -20℃ -30℃ Rest Low Medium High TEMPERATURE AND INTENSITY WHERE PERFORMANCE STARTS When developing a baselayer collection we always start out by determining in what temperature and at what intensity the garment schould be used. The specific temperature range and intensity level then combine to form the basis for the continuing design and development process. As a result, we offer the categories with unique performance characteristics that together cover all kinds of climates and intensities. Consult the graph to see which category works best for what condition. 30
