About BasePro & GlovePro
Fortress Clothing has developed BasePro & GlovePro to serve as the ultimate base layer in cold environments. Both utilize their “next to skin” technology, which allows just one layer to be worn to maintain optimal body heat, rather than multiple cumbersome and heavy layers.
BasePro is insulated in essential areas to keep the body’s core temperature stable without the hassle of many layers. Its four-way stretch fabric keeps one warm when wet or dry and remains comfortable against the skin. Intended to be worn under a coat, shell, or other outerwear clothing, BasePro can also be used inside a sleeping bag for warmth throughout the night.
Designed with a waterproof and windproof shell, GlovePro also keeps the wearer warm, even when wet.
A stable core temperature is essential for the body to function properly; while extremely cold extremities are uncomfortable and can inhibit movement, they do not threaten the body’s well being.
Core temperature refers to the maintenance of the area containing the organs, which cannot drop significantly in temperature or their function will be significantly impaired.
Thermal heat control and moisture wicking insulation make this line of products perfectly suited for those working or spending a lot of time outdoors. Ideal for outdoor use, these products will keep users warm while skiing, performing winter chores, walking the dog, working in construction, or just while at the cabin.
How Do BasePro & GlovePro Work?
For men, the fit of BasePro tops are true to size. Women, however, are instructed to select a size smaller than their regular shirt size for optimal fit.
BasePro pants and GlovePro fit true to size for both men and women.
Sizes range from small to XXL for BasePro while GlovePro sizes range from XS to XL.
BasePro and GlovePro Features
Enforced stitching around high movement areas keeps the top durable as a four-way stretch brushed base layer. Insulation in front of and behind the core, in addition to extra protection around the shoulders and upper arms, maintains warmth for the entire body.
Insulation extends around the glutes, hamstrings, thighs, knees, and around the groin to keep every area warm. A drawcord and elastic waistband allow it to be layered with different clothes and for optimal comfort.
Offering protection from both the wind and rain, GlovePro is made with a durable shell for use in harsh winter climates even while working outside for the entire day.
