The grid structure of Active Thermic gives the linen an independent look.

Our new Active Thermic base layer is part of the ACTIVE range (for women / for men) of base layer, which is particularly suitable for low and medium intensity activities and impresses with comfort, freedom of movement, good moisture management and coolness. Thanks to the integrated ZeroScent technology, odours are also prevented so that you always feel completely comfortable in your skin, even when things get really tough.

The Active Thermic base layer has a few more highlights that we would like to share with you in this blog.


You can feel how extraordinarily light Active Thermic base layer is as soon as you touch it and you can feel how warm it is as soon as you slip into it. Discover the secret of the special Active Warming technology created by our fabric experts. The thermal capacity of 100 grams of this yarn is 40% higher than, for example, our Active Warm yarn. This is made possible by integrating specific carbon particles into the yarn used in knitting our Active Thermic base layer.


The carbon particles store the heat released by your body and return it to your skin during resting periods when your body produces less heat. This works particularly well because the carbon's structure dramatically increases the surface area of the yarn, making it able to reflect more heat.

What you feel directly on your skin is illustrated by the following figures: According to tests conducted by Testex Institute, the thermal capacity of 100 g of the Active Thermic is 40% higher compared to 100 g of the Warm Originals. In other words: the Active Thermic base layer is only 65% of the weight of the Originals range, yet provides 91% of its thermal capacity.

Grid structure ensures lightness of design

The grid structure of Active Thermic, visible on the inside of the base layer, gives the base layer an independent look so that you can recognize the new base layer at first glance. In addition, the elastic waistband of the pants gives the outfit a fresh look.


The Active Thermic baselayer top is available with a CREW NECK, with a cuddly turtleneck or with a half-length zip. The tights are available both in long and ¾ length. Combine the great colours to your taste: Black Melange, Grey Melange, Submerged Melange or Charisma Melange!
