Women’s thermal clothing often has a hard time striking the balance between pretty and performance. But the Snow Angel Veluxe Graphic Zip T-Neck is both powerful enough to wear as an insulating layer for long outdoor adventures and pretty enough to wear out to coffee.
Made of 88 percent antimicrobial polyester and 12 percent spandex, the shirt is breathable and wicks moisture—so it can easily handle that long hike or ski session without making you want to quit. The fabric is also lightly “peached” on both sides for a soft, cozy feel. Once you put it on, it’s difficult to want to take it off. But because the shirt has an antimicrobial finish to keep the athletic aroma away, you can keep it on for hours.
The long, raglan sleeves have thumbholes, so you can keep them in place under other long-sleeved garments, or just pull them down to keep your hands warm. In some clothing, the thumbholes aren’t optimally placed, and they end up making you feel as if your sleeves are about an inch too short. Not so with this shirt. Use the thumbholes or don’t use them, but you’re perfectly comfortable either way.
The graphic print and hourglass fit may make you want to wear this shirt on the outside, too. Nothing’s wrong with looking good while you’re on an adventure.

For women, the days of being limited to wearing bulky men’s performance thermals or cute but wimpy women’s base-layer garments are long over. Pull on Snow Angel’s Cybersilk Crew Neck and Graphic Legging before you suit up for the cold weather, and you’ll be warm and stylish.
Whether you’re a neighborhood runner, a ski fan, or a backcountry adventurer, having a comfortable fit with fabric that breathes and stretches makes going out in the cool weather a snap. And being outfitted property for your travels is a major key to enjoying them.
This silk-weight microfiber jersey moves easily under layers and the antimicrobial finish helps keep everyone from knowing just how seriously you get into your outdoor activities. Besides staying warm, the fabric wicks moisture away, so you’re comfortable for as long as your adventures last.
In the crew neck, extra long arms reach to mid-hand and include thumb holes to keep wrists warm, yet the fit is loose enough to allow easy movement. An hourglass fit with princess seams fits much better than unisex styles. And the graphic print down the arms makes me want to wear it on the outside of my clothing, rather than underneath.
The low-rise leggings sit just below the waistline for a comfortable fit. The fabric is perfectly lightweight, but not sheer—and the graphic print on the back of the waistband is nice for continuity without being “matchy-matchy.”
