Smartwool's answer to performance Base Layers

The new Intraknit™ base layers enable the body to move better, work more efficiently and perform at a higher level in variable conditions and high-intensity activities.

Designed from the inside out, Smartwool designers map the new base layers to the body's natural heating and cooling zones adding insulation where more warmth is needed and ventilation where cooling needs to occur.

The 3D knit sculpting technique creates superior articulation that wraps around joints to dramatically enhance garment movement, flex and fit. The sculpting technique enables the Smartwool team more innovative freedom in the future of product design for specific human performance needs.

This minimalist-style layer is anything but insignificant. With Merino Sport yarns and gender-specific ventilation perfectly placed to maximize thermoregulation and breathability in high-intensity activities, it helps amplify sweat management, movement, and comfort.
Key Features of Intraknit™ Merino 200 series

·      Blended Merino Sport yarn combines the power of Merino with the durability and fast dry times of polyester.

·      Engineered construction uses knit structure to enhances performance with lighter garment weight and a cleaner finish.

·      Mesh ventilation seamlessly knit in gender-specific zones designed to help keep the body dry and comfortable.

·      3D mapping results in near custom fit and freedom of movement, while ribbed areas provide added durability.
Mapped To Perform

Novel knitting technique can transition from insulation to ventilation without adding separate fabric panels.

Depending on use and product, ventilation and insulation are placed in gender-specific zones to maximize thermoregulation.
