Our review

More t shirt than base layer, good one for general winter comfort, but pricey

Howies was one of the first to make it big with Merino base layers and they established a fine reputation for turning out some very comfortable and universally wearable wool base layers.

Made from the finest grade, 100% super-fine Merino wool, the fabric naturally wicks, resists odour build-up and regulates temperature. The Vail is more of a casual base layer.

Howies make various Merino base layers depending on your requirements and the relaxed cut of the Vail fits like a regular T-shirt, and it’s got to be said, an expensive one. The feel of the wool is lovely next to the skin and the thin fabric delivers loads of function. We’d recommend the Howies NBL light long-sleeve for cycle-specific layering, but the Vail is a good compromise between looks and comfort. Available to buy directly from the Howies website.
