Base layers

Stay warm when it’s cold and fresh when it’s hot with our thermal base layer tops and 3/4 bottoms. A good base layer is the foundation of a comfortable day on the mountain. Planks' Fall Line Base Layer Top is made from recycled Repreve TruDry polyester fabric and is both warm, breathable and lightweight. Just the ticket for long days in an uncompromising environment. Made from Planks RIDEfreshUV fabric, the Fall-Line Base Layer Top keeps you feeling fresh all day long. Moisture-wicking fibres transport perspiration away from your skin, keeping you dry and helping to regulate your body temperature. Your roomies will thank us for its odour-supressing, anti-bacterial coating. Four way stretch fabric eradicates uncomfortable pinch points. Elasticated cuffs keep your sleeves from getting wet. UV protection is a must for long, stripped-down days in the skin track.

Planks' Fall-Line Base Layer Pant is designed for skiing. These are not dual-purpose yoga slacks for your girlfriend's pilates classes! These hard-wearing, very manly, three quarter length thermals have one purpose: Keeping their wearer warm and dry in harsh environments during vigorous, high altitude exercise. Made from Planks RIDEfreshUV fabric, featuring recycled REPREVE yarn, the Fall-Line Base Layer Pant keeps you feeling fresh all day long. Moisture-wicking fibres transport perspiration away from your skin, keeping you dry and helping to regulate your body temperature. They also have a four way stretch fabric, which eradicates uncomfortable pinch points.

Planks' colours and series

Our outerwear is split into series. However, fear not, no matter the series, all of our gear is waterproof and breathable, two things which are crucial for skiwear. We have a whole range of colours and patterns. Looking for something more subtle? We’ve got black, grey, army green or navy. Feeling bold? Why not go for petrol blue, fluoro lime, purple, orange, indigo, or even animal print!

If you’re a backcountry fanatic who enjoys ski touring and earning their turns, our Yeti Series for you. The Yeti Series is a collection of 3-layer shell apparel designed for serious freeride skiers. With fully taped seams, the recycled 2-way stretch fabric is bonded to Planks’ most waterproof and breathable 20k/20k membrane for maximum performance. 

The Good Times Series is robust and versatile; it is designed to take whatever you or the mountains can throw at it, time after time. It’s our bestselling series year after year. This is comfort-focused outerwear for long ski days. A level up from the Shred Series in terms of features, Good Times apparel has highly waterproof, breathable and recycled 15k/15k fabrics. Combine that with toasty warm midweight insulation, fully taped seams, and waterproof exposed zips and you're ready for the hill! Regular fits across the series offer enough room to add extra layers and still feel free skiing. There’s mesh-lined venting to cool you down and keep the snow out too. These jackets and pants are packed with everything you’ll ever need for maximum good times in the mountains! 

Next up we’ve got the Shred Series. Home to bold styles and essential features, the Shred Series puts the “fun” into functional. Animal print, hot red, powder pink - pick your colour or print and go shred. Created for the daily shredder, every piece of outerwear features Planks’ recycled RIDEdry10 fabric and taped seams to keep you dry and comfortable for a full day’s riding. There are zip- close stash pockets for your phone, Rizlas, car keys and cold fingers, in every jacket, pant and riding hoodie. Fit, venting features and insulation weights vary by style, so first choose the look, then check the specs. The Shred Series works better the more upside down you go.
