Our review

Can’t fault its performance, but the price is pretty hefty – even for Howies!

The NBL Light is a fitted base layer that really hugs the body. The sleeves are cut short and where some merino clothing can feel a bit itchy, this is sublimely soft next to the skin.  It’s so comfy we didn’t really want to take it off.


It’s very light and breathable, and does a great job of wicking sweat naturally, which controls body temperature.

Like other wool garments In doing so it keeps any odour build-up to a minimum, so it’s great for long rides and repeated use.


It’s definitely light enough for those classic crap summer days and will be a godsend come winter.
