Rothco ECWCS Mid-Weight Underwear Top Product Review

This Rothco underwear top, crafted from polyester and spandex material, has the breathability and right amount of warmth to be the essential baseline to your overall survival clothing ensemble.

This underwear top is known in the Army as a waffle top because of its waffle-like material imprint, which traps heat more effectively and leaves you feeling warm throughout the day.

Windproof and quick-dry, this underwear top can provide care-free comfort and protection throughout your journey.

It features thumb holes to keep the sleeves in place all day, all while improving your grip, bringing extra warmth to your hands, and maximizing overall comfort. When you’re layered up, you want the fitting and removal of other clothing to be an easy process and not slow you down.

Across the board, zips can be flawed, but Rothco has crafted a comfortable and practical zip. It zips all the way to the top of the collar and has a zipper protector built in so you don’t feel it on your neck.

Lightweight clothing is essential when experiencing the outdoor challenges, yet, this underwear top doesn’t offer lightweight material.

Instead, it offers a middle-range weight, which suggests it’s best suited to winter and colder weather conditions. The weight of this item is something to consider before making any potential purchases.
