Pros: Comfort and great fit

 

Review:

I have been wearing Hot Chillys off and on since the 80's and have always been impressed with the warmth, but not so much with the sizing, I always felt that they ran small and not really for the shape of an actual person. HC has done a good job correcting that because this current generation of wear fits much truer to size . With the evolution of technical wear there is always new names coming to the conversation so much that we forget the names that have been around for a while like Hot Chillys. Well, I will say after wearing capeline and merino from various manufacturers I still find them itchy, even though they shouldn't be. The Micro-Elite Chamois 8K with it's a blend of soft MTF micro polyester yarns is much more comfortable for me. Even though it isn's a true natural product like a wool, the Bio-Silver is an antibacterial membrane which will minimize odor. If all my base layers, this is by for the most comfortable one.
