Update: Champion by Duofold Varitherm top and bottom

Champion by Duofold Varitherm thermal top and bottom Since receiving the Varitherm top and bottom the weather has been a mix of cold and not so cold so I have not worn them a lot but I have worn them when they were appropriate.  This has included several walks on some chilly mornings and a few bike rides on my Rans Dynamik (crank forward road bike) and my new off road Recumbent.  I did manage one walk when it was 28 F and there was snow on the ground.  I actually missed the snow because I was at work in the valley and it did not snow there but it was a cold day and I had them on at work.  When I got home the following morning about half of the 2 inches of snow was left so instead of my usual nap I took a long walk after my breakfast and a few cups of coffee.  To read the rest of the review please click here.

Duofold by Champion Varitherm top and bottom

Duofold is a name synonymous with base layer protection and they offer several tops and Duofold by Champion Varitherm top and bottom bottoms for different conditions in 3 distinct categories; the Original, Thermal and Varitherm.  I will be testing the Varitherm Mid-Weight Brushed Back top and bottom.  As can be guessed by the name, the Varitherm line is designed to be useful within a wide range of temperatures. Both utilize the same 100% Polyester material that is said to pull moisture out while locking heat in.  It definitely feels softer on the inside.  A great feature of the Varitherm line is the flatlock seams.
