Are you still shivering under your winter coats and pants? If so, you might want to consider a thermal set that’ll lock in your body heat to keep you toasty warm. One affordable set has earned the designation of “best thermals ever” from tons of Amazon shoppers — and it’s only $26.

The Ekouaer Thermal Base Layering Set has a snug fit that’s designed to trap heat before it leaves your body, so you’ll stay cozy even when it’s freezing cold outside. The fleece-lined set is tagless, with a four-way stretch that won’t constrain your movements. Plus, the popular set is available in many classic colors (including gray, black, navy, and wine red), with sizes ranging from small to triple XL.

Maintaining the right body temperature in the winter can be a delicate balancing act. You want to avoid those dreaded chills, but you don’t want to overheat, either. To address this exact problem, the exterior of the Ekouaer thermal set is breathable and moisture-wicking. As one reviewer writes, they’re “neither too hot nor too cold” whenever they wear the best-selling long underwear

“Ah, I’m finally warm,” a reviewer who lives in Minnesota wrote. “This long underwear feels super-soft and warm against my skin. It’s perfect for layering. I even wore it under a nice dress with the long underwear slightly peaking out, and somehow it still looked nice.”

There are so many ways to adapt the thermal set to suit your winter plans. You can wear the long underwear as pajamas, loungewear, or a base layer. The form-fitting pieces can easily be layered underneath your clothes for activities like snowshoeing and skiing. And you could definitely get away with wearing the thermal shirt included in the set as a standalone piece. Because of how comfortable and multifunctional the thermal set is, some Amazon shoppers say they’re reluctant to wear anything else.

“I could live in these thermals because they’re like a second skin: not too thick and so soft,” one reviewer said. “This is my second pair, and I plan to order a third in purple.”

Since prices start at just $20, you may want to pre-emptively pick up the Ekouaer Thermal Base Layering Set in several colors. That way, you can go longer between laundry days but still have an array of comfy thermal sets to slip on each morning.
