CRAFT Active Crewneck

 

CRAFT have really hit the jackpot with this long sleeved base layer, combining a crew neck that protects the base of the neck, with superb wicking abilities to keep you warm and dry.  All this and it looks great too!

 

CRAFT Active Crewneck

 

CRAFT’s Active Crewneck base layer fits like a second skin and has been styled with side seams to give it  little bit of feminine flare.  The superb fit is also a result of the very stretchy nature of the material, which allows for a full range of movement, without any tugging or pulling – in fact we have been using it in the gym, as well as on the bike, because it feels so good.

 

The cut is generous in length, so there is plenty of tuck in and absolutely no danger of exposing the lower back when bent low over the bars or when reaching in the gym.  The sleeves are well sized too, giving good coverage to the arms and again they seemed to stay nicely in place whatever we got up to.

 

It goes without saying that CRAFT have used a high tech fabric that wicks away sweat from the body to keep you dry and comfortable, and the seams are all flat locked as well, to ensure there is no hint of chafing anywhere.

 

The crew neck is a lovely snug fit.  It works really well with our winter jackets, protecting the base of the neck and throat, without making us feel choked.  In fact we were able to ride without the usual buff when using this base – it’s always nice to be able to shed a winter layer without losing any warmth!

 

Once again we find that CRAFT offer a wardrobe basic, with styling that flatters the female form and that performs with the best.  The crew neck makes this a great choice for winter rides and it will be perfect with lighter layers in spring and autumn too.
