Our review

An unmatched-for-comfort seamless construction with outstanding performance

We found it hard to fault the Nalini Trail. The space age looks might throw you at first but they come courtesy of a seamless construction that uses a variable knit technology to combine warmth, ventilation and fit in one smooth package. It’s amazing how much difference just removing side seams can make.

Where this top goes one step further is combining that with different knit weights and densities (the variable knit part). There are rib sections that supply close fitting detail, more open mesh areas where you need ventilation and denser cosy sections to supply warmth. While that might sound complicated, how it works out in riding practice is very simple. We stayed warm, dry and hardly noticed we were wearing it.

The length was more than generous – even for this tall tester and the high neck, which we were initially concerned might feel too much, was light to wear and added to the overall feeling of warmth. The fit was, and is meant to be, very close – the way it’s made means it moves with you with no feeling of restriction. We’ll be relying on this one through the colder days of winter.
