Base Layers as 'Jammies' on 07/23/2011 13:38:35 MDT Print View

After a long and dirty day I like to take a top-down sponge bath and slip into my 'jammies'. I feel cleaner and my sleep system stays cleaner.

I've been using a GoLite DriMove LS top that weighs 2.95 ounces. I been on the hunt for a replacement, and have found two: The GoLite Wildwood LS and the Arcteryx Phase SL LS.

The Wildwood in Large weighs 3.48 ounces. The Phase weighs 4.36 ounces.

To the hand, the fabric on the Wildwood feels lighter and more breathable.
On the body (5'9", 170#) it is looser and feels cooler.

I'll keep the Wildwood and return the Phase.

You should also try the Outdoor Research Echo LS. Mine is 3.74 ounces in medium, and has a nice fit and fabric feel. It's now my go to long sleeve layer...
