Level II: Midweight Shirt and Drawers
The shirt and drawers are designed to provide light insulation for use in mild climates as well as a base layer for colder climates, worn next to skin by itself or in conjunction with other levels for added insulation and to aid in the transfer of moisture. Fabric is slightly different than level I in that it provides extra warmth but still wicks moisture away from the skin to allow for quicker evaporation.
Description of Item
The shirt is long sleeved with thumb holes and features a mid-chest zipper that closes to convert to a mock turtleneck. The neck also features a throat protection flap. The base of the zipper is reinforced with nylon webbing and for additional insulation the back of the shirt features a contoured long tail.
The drawers feature an elastic waistband and access fly.
Flat-locked seams and cover-stitched hems have been added to reduce chaffing and increase comfort during movement.
