Hot Chillys

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval

Hot Chillys Performance Base Layers all use the exclusive MTF (moisture transfer fiber) technology and "Chilly Seasonings" to move moisture away from your body while still holding in body heat. This keeps you warm and comfortable so you can focus on enjoying whatever you do.

The Performance Base Layers come in two types of fit, Relaxed Fit and Body Fit. The Body Fit is for those who want the highest level of performance. All of their body fit products use stretch yarns to hug your body, efficiently move moisture, hold in body heat and move with you during every activity. The Relaxed Fit is for those who want a looser, more relaxed fit, yet keep you warm, dry and comfortable. Many of the relaxed fit tops are styled to work not just as performance base layer but also as great looking sportswear tops.

We have used Hot Chillys for years and are impressed by not only the quality, but how they continue to improve their performance wear. We have used these performance wear for winter and summer, and always appreciate staying warm without being too hot.

Micro-Elite Chamois Performance Warmwear


Hot Chillys Micro-Elite Chamois Crewneck is engineered with soft microfiber MTF yarns combined with spandex for a body fit that stretches and moves with you. Bio-Silver antimicrobial yarns to help control odor. The fabric is also lightly sanded on the inside for added softness, comfort and warmth.

This is their best Selling Hot Chillys Base Layer and we can see why. Products with a warmth factor between 7 and 8 are their most popular medium warmth, midweight products designed for excellent moisture management and slightly greater warmth. These are great for cold conditions and perfect for performing with you all day on the mountain. We used these for skiing and for backpacking. They are nice enough looking that we could wear them without something over them.
