Peter DunnI have just come back from leading a group in Yellowstone looking for wolves and the temperature ranged from -32C to a balmy -7C. I wore this top as a base layer and never felt the cold. Granted I also had a down filled jacket and topped with a windproof waterproof coat but I also had a cheaper marino mix base layer which did not keep me as warm. Best base layer I have had
Mark Handford - Snowdonia Adventures2 months have passed since this arrived as test kit from Trespass, in that time its been the single base layer I have used for walking, climbing and skiing, both here in the UK and in Italy.
This is the first merino wool product I have seen that carries the official Wool Mark, so its guaranteed to meet certain criteria in its weave.
This top is super comfy, I have not had a sweaty back as it wicks moisture without being noticed, keeping me dry and warm in minus 17C temps. When the weather was warmer I simply felt comfortable, not too warm.
Unlike most merino base layers this one is not a skin tight fit, I wasn't sure about this at first, but can honestly say the relaxed fit works. Overall this is a fantastic certified wool product and I will be taking this out to Norway next month when Im working on a hut to hut nordic ski tour.
Would I buy one? Yes!
I have recommended these to friends and clients.
FrankI ordered my usual medium and the fit was perfect. The feel was lovely and comfortable on. I wear it either as a base layer or light but warm top.
There is no skimping on sleeve or back length - a quality garment with my favourite performance fabric, merino wool.
