I have a couple of sleeveless Prendas ones.
I find them really good.

Would someone with a technical mindset please try to explain how wearing two tops can be cooler than wearing just the one?

Not a technical mindset, but the principle (as I undertsand it) is that the underlayer wicks moisture away faster than if it just saturated the outer layer. The speed at which water is taken away from the skin is supposed to be the determining factor as to how well one cools.

Adidas range is nice, hard-wearing stuff. Ribble have them in stock.
