Eco brand Finisterre have developed this base layer from the finest and softest pure merino wool we’ve ever worn – the fibres are a tiny 17.5 microns in diameter – and that means it’s incredibly lightweight too.
It has a simple body-hugging cut with crew neck, and a good long length means it stays tucked in. During cold, hard rides the base layer performed faultlessly, soaking up sweat but keeping us warm without getting all whiffy – that’s the joy of a garment like this.
Merino’s natural antibacterial properties make this base layer spot-on for all-day epics or multiple fast blasts. It’s a bargain too because it’s worth every penny.
