Sportful is no stranger to building quality base layers. Manifattura Valcismon, Sportful parent company, started producing knitted underwear over 80 years ago. In the 1940s that meant a supply chain consisting of local sheep grazing in the shadow of the Dolomites. Technology and innovation have brought changes but all these years later, Sportful is still at it. 

Not only is the brand still creating base layers but we consider them good enough that we've included them among our list of the best base layers. Although we appreciated the summer version, the northern hemisphere is bringing a change of seasons. As summer gives way to colder weather and shorter days, we've begun looking at the best options for cooler weather. Keep reading to see if we think the winter version is the same level of quality and how it might fit into your cold weather options.
