Snow Angel Base Layers

Most guys will wear just about any base layer that’s functional. But many women who play outdoors want the first layer next to their skin to be comfortable, functional and maybe even fashionable. At least Snow Angel, a company in El Granada, Calif., thinks so.

The company, founded in 1998, came into being because “most of the thermal underwear available in stores was either bulky ill-fitting versions of men’s garments, or else pretty and feminine but without the technical properties and durability you need for serious sports use,” said founder Pamela Moyce.

Moyce decided to create something she wanted to wear: a base layer that was functional, fashionable and feminine. The result is Snow Angel, which offers a line of pieces that range from functional to sexy. Materials used include polyester, spandex, cashmere, nylon, and modal.

With nice fabrics and flattering cuts, women who want something that’s both ‘core but femme, will want to check the company out.

Too bad they use lower quality fabric in their great designs. You will not find name brand fabric in these lovely garments. Too bad.

Love Snow Angel fabrics! Fabric brand name does not influence a purchase over fit and quality of a garment. I wear Snow Angel almost everyday if not to insulate myself then I wear their pieces for comfort. I cannot go on any trip without my Snow Angels as they pack tight and are easy to care for when traveling. Snow Angel uses only the softest fabrics which I love. I have tried other well known apparel brands that claim brand name fabrics yet can’t stand the feeling when their fabrics are scratchy or just not as soft as Snow Angels.The last thing I want to feel on my skin is anything but silky fabrics. I have purchased Snow Angels for quite a few years and their apparel lasts and fits like no other. It’s soft, sexy and feels great. My husband loves how sexy Snow Angels are and the way I look in them. If he loves how soft it feels than who cares about brand name farbics. Can’t wait to see what they have new for 2010!
