Klim Aggressor Cool -1.0 base layer review

Published on: 22 March 2020

Now Chris worships Anthony at RevZilla. If you’re going to do video reviews on motorcycle products, it’s Anthony who sets the bar. Chris kicks off this review with a bit of a joke about the big fella and his review of the Klim Aggressor base layers. There’s only one problem here. Anthony didn’t do that review, but that doesn’t deter the Chap in the Cap. He’s never been one to let the facts get in the way of a good line.

More pertinently, perhaps, Chris takes issue with RevZilla’s suggestion that you’re meant to soak these Aggressor tops in water to promote evaporative cooling. Yes, you could do this, and these tops would be as effective as any base layer used in this way, but to suggest that this is how you’re meant to wear them would be to hide their light under a bushel. They’re going to work really well, and help you cool down, even if the only moisture involved is generated by your body.

What makes these particular base layers different is their use of a fabric called Coolcore. It’s an engineered fabric that has tiny grooves running down the fibres. It helps the garments to wick moisture away from the body. But it then aids the distribution of the sweat around the garment to prevent wet patches. This evenly distributed moisture also aids evaporative cooling, which helps to actually lower the body’s temperature.

Coolcore demonstration

Towards the end of the review, Chris shows you his new party trick that does indeed demonstrate the cooling effects of the Coolcore fabric used in these garments. It’s a neat demo, but everyone in the audience is a fully paid-up member of the Motolegends crew, so how do you know they’re really telling the truth? The only way you can be sure is to come into the store, so that we can perform our little stunt just for you.

Anyway, the underwear is brilliant, so it might be worth taking a few minutes to listen to what our man has to say.
