Snowboarding brand Burton don’t make boring base layers. Their extensive range comes in delicious prints and patterns. The Midweight Crew is designed to be a winter staple. Made from a snuggly and very stretchy polyester/spandex mix, the DRYRIDE Ultrawick fabric is warm and manages smells well enough for multiple days’ use. I found it underperformed as a wicking top for strenuous (i.e. really sweaty) activities, but is fine for moderate intensity output.
VERDICT: A good value thermal in a fun design.
BEST FOR: Snow sports.
