This synthetic baselayer is silky soft and smooth next to your skin with flat seams for additional comfort. The thin fabric weighs only 115g, making it lightweight and easily packable. It is therefore a great layer to have in your bag as it doesn’t take up too much space. The arms are a good standard length with little stretch in the fabric to make them longer. It has a fairly relaxed style so it fit well over all the usual lumps and bumps without feeling too tight. It dries very quickly and doesn’t smell too much if worn for consecutive days, holding just a little odour. The good news is that it washes very well and retains its shape. The colour is also very cheerful.
▶ Verdict: Smooth, silky, comfortable and lightweight.
▶ Best for: Adventures where you want to stay cool and feel comfortable.
