Here’s a good find.
For those looking for a warm undershirt you can wear in winter or in colder climates, check out 32 Degrees gear from Costco.
Wifey was there the other day and came across a 32 Degrees HEAT, Men’s long sleeve crew neck undershirt, and it was only $6.99.
The great thing about this undershirt is that the fabric blend includes a good amount of acrylic fibers, which provides insulation/warmth similar to or better than wool without the itchy scratchiness.
I’ve tried Merino Wool Undershirts before, and wasn’t too impressed to be honest. They just weren’t very comfortable.
The only other warm undershirt I’ve come across is the Uniqlo Heattech Undershirt, which I’m a pretty big fan of.
That said, the 32 Degrees HEAT undershirt from Costco is pretty badass too. Fit and feel are really nice. Sleeves may be a tad long for me, but as a base layer that I’d be mostly wearing in cold-weather situations, the extra length isn’t an issue for me.
It has more acrylic content in it, which implies it may keep you even warmer than the Uniqlo Heattech. Though, if I recall correctly, the Uniqlo Heattech undershirt may be a little thicker, so I’ll have to do some testing to be sure.
