Watson’s Base Layer

Hubs went to Daegu, South Korea again last week for work.  He knew that he’d be working outdoors at some points, so he would have to dress in layers to stay warm.  Fortunately for him, we had a base layer from Watson’s Bodywear for him to take along.

Watson’s is a Canada based company, and they know a little bit about how harsh cold weather can be… after all, Canada is listed in the top ten of coldest countries in the world! Anyway, Hubs has the Performance Long Sleeve Top and the Performance Long John from Watson’s, which made ME feel so much better about him working out in the elements.

Watson's Base Layer

Watson's Base Layer 2

The Performance base layers are made of 85% micro polyester and 15% spandex.  They are designed to wick away moisture (from sweating) and they have been given an antimicrobial treatment to control the growth of bacteria and prevent odor. The spandex allows them to stretch in whatever direction they need to and remain comfortable.  The seams are all intact and the stitching is nice.  Best of all, I was pleased with the easy care instructions of these garments.  Wash cold, tumble dry low.  YAY!  I love easy care clothing!

Hubs packed three sets of thermal underclothing to take with him to Korea.  One was cotton, one was a nylon blend, and the third was the Watson’s base layer.  Hubs said that the day he wore the Watson’s base layer, it was about 25 degrees outside with a light breeze.  He said that the Watson’s base layer kept him warm and dry, that they stayed put (no creeping like some other thermals) and that they were comfortable to wear.  I love knowing that Hubs has quality clothing to keep him comfortable when working in the elements.  Especially considering he is a bit averse to wearing a coat while working outdoors because of the bulk.  He also said that of the three types of thermal undergarments he packed, that he liked the Watson’s base layer the best and that he wants to get some more of them for future trips.

Watson’s also carries a traditional waffle material thermal, a hypoallergenic bamboo thermal, and a double layer thermal.  Learn more about Watson’s products by checking out their site at, liking Watson’s Bodywear on Facebook, and following @Watsonsbodywear on Twitter.

About Virginia

Hi there! My name is Virginia, and I am the author/owner of That Bald Chick. I am a Christian, wife, mother of three, full time homemaker, homeschooler, and ministry volunteer in addition to being a blogger. In my free time *cough* I enjoy reading, writing, taking walks with my family, and listening to music.


  1. So glad that they kept him cozy while he was there! (And yes to the no creeping…that is beyond annoying when that happens.)

  2. This looks so comfortable to wear during the cold weather. This is a must-have for the winter season.

  3. Robin Quick says:

    I will let my husband know about these! He along with my son & brother duck hunts. It gets very very cold on & IN the water when they are out there hunting. Needless to say they are always looking for the warmest bodywear they can find to wear under their camo.

  4. Robin Wilson says:

    I have never heard of this brand before. We have always gotten UnderArmor for my son and husband but these sound even better. Must have something that fits well and is comfortable too!

  5. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says:

    Since I was unfamiliar with both the company and their products (WATSONS) – and they have.make exactly the kind of products that my very athletic husband (who runs and bicycles all Winter long) would LOVE (not to mention needs!)

    His birthday is coming up – and these would make a great gift – so thank you for both the helpful review and for the INTRO!

  6. Karen Propes says:

    They just look so cozy, when it’s real cold my hubby would use them for heat when he’s riding his bike I like them.

  7. Sue Hull says:

    I’ve never heard of this brand. I have a friend who is a welder and is outside most of time and he travels to other places too. I’ll have to tell him about these. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
