EMPIRELION OUTFIT GUIDES
Your Perfect Sports and Casual Starts here
Cross-country skiing, running, yoga, cycling as well as casual place great demands on your clothes – especially if your goal is to perform optimally.
In chilly weather, your outfit should protect against low temperatures and cold wind and at the same time ensure that your body's excess heat is efficiently ventilated. And if you work out in warm conditions, the garments should offer enough cooling so that you can push yourself with an optimal body temperature. Besides sports, you don't have to worry about not having the right casual clothes.
Based on our long collaboration with some of the world’s best brands, we have created product guides for specific sports casual clothes designed to help you dress for optimal performance.
Have a great, perfect workout and casual life!

In order to choose the right baselayer, you must first determine at what temperature and intensity level the garments will be used.
Empirelion baselayers are divided into five categories: Comfort, Intensity, Extreme, and Wool.

NORDIC WOOL -- Nordic Wool is our warmest baselayer and the perfect choice for low-intensity activities in really cold conditions, such as hiking, hunting, ice fishing and cross-country ski touring. Made of a soft and thick double-weave wool blend with air pockets that trap heat, these garments keep you warm and comfortable even when the temperature goes way south. Polyester closest to the skin provides great moisture transport while wool/polyamide (80/20) on the fabric’s outside offers excellent insulation and durability.
There are many different baselayers in several different materials. Maybe you plan to use your baselayer for various purposes such as running and skiing or perhaps some less intense activity. For optimal performance and comfort, it’s important to always choose the right type of baselayer – since a cold or overheated body can turn the most fun activity into a highly uncomfortable experience. In this guide we help you find the right material and baselayer for your specific activity.
