Our review

A nice warm top for nice cold days, with added colour therapy

It’s billed as base layer, but this hooded top is far too thick and warm to wear under anything more than a lightweight waterproof unless temperatures dropped below freezing.

The Lifa fabric is considerably heavier than the Helly base layers we’re used to, which is no bad thing – a good mid-layer is just as valuable in our changeable climate and this does a grand job of shifting sweat from inside to out.

The hood fits fine under a helmet, and a high zip neck keeps draughts out whether it’s up or down.

There’s even a tiny but very effective baffle behind the zip to stop it chafing.

Do beware of sizing, which is a little snug – go up a size to avoid claustrophobic moments.
