Hockey players demand a lot from their gear and base-layer apparel is no different. Long gone are the days of wearing a simple cotton shirt under your hockey gear. Players now look for each and every way to better their performance and hockey base layer apparel provides breathable, moisture-wicking materials to keep their bodies cool and dry from the first period to the end of overtime. All of the performance base layer options here will provide you with those features, but as you go up the price ladder, you'll find that some hockey base layers offers some enhanced features such as grip-like areas to hold your protective gear in place better. Pure Hockey offers many base layer options, from short and long sleeve shirts to long pants, skate socks and shorts.
