Does anyone use thermal underwear for fishing on cold days? I once read in a book that you shouldn't wash thermal underwear as it will lose the thermal qualities. But there comes a time ...........

What do you do?

I thought old people bought thermals from www.damart.com ? 😉

Live in a warm climate, then there is no need for all that clobber🏝️

Bobj, I think that jacket is for the holiday you have planed to the South Pole. It wasn't the most expensive - it just looked kinda skimpy at that price Phone

Yes - I start with a very thin base layer followed by more traditional thermal vest (both get washed regularly with no hint of loss of performance). Below the waist its a pair of Craghoppers Polar trousers which are excellent....

TENCH,

Chris hit on it. (cut and paste)

  1. Base layer (underwear layer wicks sweat off your skin
  2. Middle layer (insulating layer): retains body heat to protect you from the cold
  3. Outer layer (shell layer): shields you from wind and rain

I have to say I am a HUGE fan of WOOL WOol wool. More later as I'm not exactly sure what it is you are looking for except staying warm

Nothing in the last 20 years "washes out" of cold weather gear that I am familiar with (??).

Modern fabrics are far more effective than the traditional old stuff like wool or cotton. Wool, cotton or linen, it doesn't matter, none of them wick away moisture like modern fabrics do.

I've got a "Sub Zero" set of long johns and long sleeved vest - it feels clingy and tight when you put it on and you think there's no way this is going to keep me warm - but if you've not left the house five minutes later there's a danger you'll be passing out from heatstroke.

I tend to wear a modern base layer, (not always the Sub Zero ), normal clothes over that and a one piece suit - never ignore the benefits of a one piece suit, closing that gap at the middle makes a huge difference.

ayjay,

I wasn't very clear. I like wool because the last time I got a new set of cold weather gear was - - - as best I can remember - - - about 1972

All,

I also wanted Chesters1 to notice. XL is it - if you are bigger than that you have no business out in the cold
