Every adventure starts with a great foundation.

Every great climb or powder day starts with a great base layer. For example, the Marmot Men's Abbott 1/2-Zip Sweater makes a solid underpinning for all the face shots and sweaty epics you're likely to endure by combining their CoolMax fabric with a blend of wool and polyester to offer solid insulation, quick drying capacity, and moisture wicking tech that'll keep your core warm, no matter how hard you sweat. Plus, the Abbot integrates flat seams to reduce chafing and underarm gussets, so your climbing and ski pole planting motions won't meet resistance from a stiff construction.
