Gear Patrol Says Corbeaux's Base Layers Are Ideal for Year-Round Use
When dressing for outdoor adventures in winter, a base layer is non-negotiable. While merino wool is the standing base layer champion, for some, it’s simply too scratchy for others. Pro-skiers Darcy Conover and Adam Moszynski were those people; wool was too irritating and there were no viable alternatives on the market. Priorities: high-quality, soft and environmentally-friendly. After years of ski adventures and talking about what they wanted to change, the two created a line of base layers called Corbeaux Clothing.

The Centennial Base Layer Pant from Corbeaux | Gear Patrol's Gift Guide Feature
The Centennial pants from Corbeaux, a ski company based in Aspen, are delightfully short. For women that are over 5’5″, these athletically cut leggings will fit like a cropped pant — perfect for layering socks on top. And for women 5’4″ and under, these pants won’t need any rolling or cuffing, which means no uncomfortable bunching in boots.
Outside's Gear Guy Loves the Ajax Henly
While the Ajax has been on countless inclement ski tours and rainy trail runs with me, I really fell in love with it on a blazing-hot day of spring skiing. Being a henley, it allowed me to dump a good amount of heat when I opened the four snaps below the collar once I started sweating. On cold days, the extrathin polyester wicks moisture from my skin with the best of them, while also feeling cottony smooth. On top of that, the Ajax competes with the Momentum when it comes to style, thanks to the snaps and stripes. And it earns bonus points for being handmade in Minnesota.
Pugski Ski Tester Loves Our Chinook Hoody
I’ve been wearing the hell out of the Corbeaux Chinook Hoody for a few months now. I find the hoody a phenomenal layer for skiing and all-around wear. It breathes and wicks incredibly well. The next-to-skin feel is excellent and the slightly loose cut drapes nicely allowing unrestricted movement.

The colors are vibrant, feature UPF 50 protection, and are put to the test in all elements by the pros.

Layered under ski pants, the polyester-spandex Centennial (men’s pictured) kicks ass. “Felt great against my skin, and excellent temperature regulation kept it from getting too hot,” one tester said. On top of that, the three-quarter-length leg and wide waistband didn’t bunch.
