Our review

Soft top with medium level warmth and merino’s natural wicking abilities
Skip to view product specifications

Although the outer face is polyester to improve durability, you get soft merino wool next to your body here and very comfortable it is too.


We found the sleeves a little loose, but the snug body section keeps the fabric in contact with your skin so it can wick sweat effectively, and the extended back is plenty long enough.


Our thermosensors showed a medium level of warmth while riding, but we didn’t get much colder when we stopped – our lowest skin temperature was higher than that of any of the other tops on test. Round neck models are available too, in sleeveless (£32) and short sleeve (£42) versions.
