As anyone who lives in colder climes can tell you: during wintertime, thermal underwear is a must. For hunters, campers, and hikers, this is equally true, if not more so. Because hunting, camping, and hiking are all outdoor activities–in fact, these activities take place exclusively outdoors–good thermal underwear is a must.
The two-piece thermal underwear of today is a fairly recent development. This thermal underwear has supplanted the one-piece union suit worn until the mid-1900s almost solely by men. The union suit was made of red flannel and buttoned up the front with a hatch in back. Modern thermal underwear is worn by both men and women.
The Outdoor World, as a leading retailer of outdoor sporting goods, sells thermal underwear as well. The thermals we sell are manufactured by Terramar, which makes 100 percent pure silk long underwear. The silk is made in an interlocking knit construction, to help keep you warm on even the coldest of winter days. This underwear also employs the EC2 Quik-Dri process, which lifts moisture molecules away from your body for rapid evaporation and makes this product ideal for all types of outdoor winter or cold-weather activity.
The Outdoor World also carries thermal socks to keep your feet warm. Since much of your body heat dissipates through your feet, thermal socks are a must. Also, for when you get home, we have hot air shoe dryers with wader extensions. These will get leather dress shoes dry in three-and-a-half hours, and winter boots dry overnight.
