Endura’s Baa Baa is made from natural Merino wool, which provides a superb natural layer that’s itch-free, unlike most normal wool jerseys.
Not only is it soft and comfy, it’s great at drawing the sweat away from your skin. Where it beats synthetics is that if it gets wet it stays warm, and offers a great weight-to-warmth ratio.
All seams on the Baa Baa are flatlock-stitched, so there’s no rubbing even when wearing a pack or other layers on top. The cut is fitted, making it easy to wear under other layers. One bonus, especially if you like multi-day epic rides or you’re just lazy, is this material doesn’t stink as much as man-made fibres, so you can wear it for several days without honking too much.
It is still machine-washable, and there’s no need to worry about being too delicate with it. At this price, the Endura is one of the best-value Merino base layers available.
