A faultless fast-drying top that stubbornly refuses to pong – a real winner
Skip to view product specifications

This base layer has survived two days’ non-stop riding in warm and muggy conditions, short sharp training rides with no washing in between and plenty of other smell-inducing abuse. The result? Nothing. Not a whiff, so all credit to Rab for their new fabric.

The 65% merino wool mixed with 35% Cocona polyester (made with carbonised coconut shells) reputedly makes the merino dry five times faster, and while we didn’t get wet on the rides, we certainly didn’t suffer from any dampness for any length of time, no matter how much we sweated. A faultless fast-drying top that stubbornly refuses to pong – a real winner.
