Repack's Berino jersey is made from a combination of merino wool and bamboo charcoal, and it does a good job of regulating body temperature. It wicked sweat away well, and stayed relatively stink-free throughout the testing period.
That hefty £70 price does cover the cost of three zipped rear pockets that will securely store all the essentials, as well as a full-length zip up front. We were big fans of the Berino’s soft, comfortable feel, as well as the high collar, which did a great job of keeping the draught out on cold days.
The tailored cut means there’s no excess baggy material flapping in the breeze ready to snag brambles but you may want to jump up a size if you’re looking for a more relaxed fit.
