When gearing up for a snowmobiling adventure, ensuring you have the appropriate layers underneath your bibs and jacket is essential for comfort, warmth, and protection. The ideal combination will depend on your climate, riding style, and personal preference. Fortunately, 509 offers a range of base layers and mid layers to cater to different needs. Let's explore the options and understand why base layers are important for snowmobiling. 

Base Layers: 

Base layers are the foundation of your snowmobiling attire, designed to regulate body temperature, wick moisture away from the skin, and provide a comfortable layer of insulation. 509 offers a variety of base layer options to suit different preferences: 

FZN Level 1: The FZN Level 1 collection includes a shirt, pant, and party suit. These lightweight base layers are designed to be breathable and moisture-wicking, making them suitable for active riders who generate more body heat.
