Hey i'm just wondering if anyone has thermal recommendations. Preferably high value for money but i don't necessarily need or want them to be the cheapest

I'm shopping for pants and tops for

Kids thermals 2yo or 5yo

Men's thermals



  • +1

    Base Thermals - currently 3 for $40
    Torpedo7 - currently buy 1 get 1 half price
    Kathmandu - currently 2 for $45

    • Who is base thermal? there website seems a bit dodge, no address, cant find them listed on companies register.

      All i can tell is that by googling the phone number it leads to a merchandising company called 'Always Made Special'

      • I've bought through them several times.
        Quick delivery etc.

        Likely they are a wholesaler running base thermals as a trade as name.
        let me see if I can find an invoice from them for clarity.

        This matches the name of one of the returns I did to them.

  • thanks for letting me know youve ordered from them before. might give them a go

  • Might pay to compare materials, not just price: I notice that Base and TWH both have thermals made from polyester/viscose which is good but not as breathable and probably not quite as warm when wet as polypropylene or wool. I only looked at a couple on the Torpedo7 website but they seem to use "hollow core polyester", which I've not tried. TWH also have a Merino range which are much more expensive but quite good. Kathmandu have a good range of excellent quality polypropylene ones that are often on special from what I can tell.

  • Hi, not thermals but earthtec socks are incredible winter wear not cheap but last as well

  • I've had good experiences with Kathmandu ultra core.
    Not itchy material.
    Seems to be renamed to KMDcore

  • After you try merino base layers you will really wonder why on earth you ever thought polyester was good. That smell urghhh..
    I changed to icebreaker wool thermals. It really is an amazing product. Not at all itchy. You can just chuck it in the washing machine with everything else
    But I find you don't need to wash it daily especially if you have a cotton T under the thermal layer.

  • Thanks for all the replies, i ended up with some kathmandu merino, purely for the comfort factor. bonus it was clearance so 3 for 60 kids thermals.

    • Good score!
