You'd be on the right path if you're getting cold weather clothing from a country that's very experienced with below freezing temps—Germany. This cotton tricot shirt is one of the base layers the Bundeswehr issue to their troops. It features a high collar for retaining heat close to the body. This collar can be zipped down for unleashing any unbridled chest hair you may want to reveal to your fellow companions. Or perhaps you just wanted to 'cool off'.
"What is tricot fabric?" You may ask. Tricot is a very fine and smooth fabric commonly used in base layers. The weave on this shirt is made from cotton which is better suited for light activity levels, sweating too much will make you colder. These shirts can be worn with thermals, under other layers, or just on their own. A very affordable way to pick up quality winter base layers for your outdoor pursuits.

Just recently bought and received these thermal tops. Tried it today, and I must say one of most warm and comfortable thermals I've ever have. Fabric have a good stretch and fit on the body. I lived down south NZ meaning coldest of the cold, but with this thermals, winter have never been this warm. Highly recommended and looking forward to buy some more.
I made these my everyday work uniform. They’re honestly great and affordable enough to not have to baby them or compromise your activities to spare them.
I discovered them before Ian McCollum, too.
Pretty cool German tricot. I love how comfortable it is. Also, it warms you up fast too.
Originally bought it far to small. I returned it and got a larger one hassle free with no extra charge. Great service. The shirt is fairly lightweight however it keeps me warm. Best of all it's stupidly cheap!
