Tight fitting top

This baselayer is made from a blend of polyester and spandex, so it’s superhero tight! It’s very form-hugging, so it won’t be for everyone, but the long cut does mean it doesn’t ride up your back and is it very, very comfy.

The lightweight semi-mesh construction wicks sweat quite well, but we liked it most because it fits so well under a midlayer – it doesn’t even feel like you're wearing it.

All the seams are at the back, which increases comfort and aids mobility. It’s so light it will be great any season, but works especially well as a base for full-on winter epics. It’s a bargain too.
