Essential warmth for wintertime activities.
Designed with smartly placed fabrics for the best in wearing comfort and temperature regulation, the Houdini Men's Phantom Long-Sleeve Zip Top rapidly wicks moisture and traps thermal warmth during winter activities, such as backcountry ski tours and rigorous hikes. Houdini places their Alpha Base fabric along the front panel and sleeves, which maximizes warmth where you need it most during wintertime and cold-weather activities.
The polyester body is supplemented with Delta Base fabric underneath the armpits, as well as along the back and side panels. Delta Base fabric actively pulls moisture off your body to prevent the dreaded cold-and-clammy sensation that comes with sweating in wintertime. Both of these synthetic fabrics feature a pH Pure treatment, which lowers the pH of the fabric to prevent odor-causing microbes from taking residency and stinking up your baselayer.

I usually only wear wool for my baselayers, but this is the one exception I have in my closet. They way that Houdini blended the fabrics and made the back of the top thinner than the front is perfect for my winter activities. I wear this when backcountry splitboarding and it really helps the top to breathe out the back, which is where you sweat the most, and carrying all of your avalanche gear on your back doesn't make it easy to breathe. I also really like the zipper, I don't even notice it when it is closed but I really appreciate it when it's open to help dump some heat for the uphill. It is stylish enough that I could wear it for Apres and not have to worry about throwing on a different top. The fabric is super soft and very comfortable, sometimes I just put it on while at home to wear around the house.
