Endura’s Transmission base layer is made using polypropylene – the old-fashioned stuff that worked great but tended to stink after five minutes’ wear and had a tendency to melt on radiators. It’s fallen out of favour, but those in the know have always rated its superior moisture transfer and fast drying.


Newer and less delicate mixes (this is 30%) of the yarn have seen polypropylene re-emerge, and while there are clear directives not to tumble dry, iron or subject this top to hot situations, you can at least wash it at 40C. That, combined with the antibacterial treatment was enough to keep us smelling fresh.

It wasn’t just the fabric that cut it; the articulated design and its multi-panel construction is something you usually see in more expensive styles. It makes for an excellent fit that moves with you without bunching or riding up.


The flatlocked seams, another more spendy touch, make this very comfortable, but because they’re in a contrast colour the top looks fine when worn alone. This isn’t just a good base layer for the money – it’s a good base layer full stop.
