Craft Women’s Cool Seamless Base

 

The Craft Women’s Cool Seamless Base is a wonderfully lightweight, but super hard working base layer, that actively pulls moisture away from the body to keep you cool and dry.

There is some really good lightweight kit around this season – someone must have known we were in for some glorious weather – and the Craft Women’s Cool Seamless Base has earned its place on our very short list of great new base layers this year.

 

Craft have never cut corners in their design, so the feel, fit and function of this base layer really oozes quality.  There are a number of features worthy of a mention but let’s start with the obvious.  Yes, the clue is in the title, the body of this base is seamless, but that does not mean the fabric is the same throughout, as Craft have incorporated mesh panels to give greater ventilation where you need it most; under the arms, across the chest and down the middle of the back. 

 

The ability of this base layer to keep you cool and dry is a function of the very clever fabric Craft have developed for the Cool Seamless Base which has six channels that actively pull perspiration vapour away from the body to keep it cool, whilst also allowing air to pass through to the skin.  We found it to be a winning combination both on hot days outside, but also when we were training indoors at the Newport velodrome, our preferred testing ground for kit that we are trailing.

 

The base is form fitting – Craft call it an ergonomic 3D fit – which we found sat nicely close to the skin, following the female shape, and because the material is so stretchy we were not restricted in our range of movement.  We also really liked the semi-scoop neck, which allowed for a little more ventilation, as well as looking stylish and it made it really easy to pull on and off.  That the seam around the neck is taped is testament to Craft’s attention to detail.

 

The Craft Cool Seamless base is truly a pleasure to wear for any sort of exercise on hot days or indoors and there is a great choice of colours too.  It offers superb moisture management to keep you cool and fresh, in a lightweight and seamless base that feels amazing next to the skin.
