Nike do a big range of thermal and base layer gear, but this women’s top stood out from the selection they sent us. The Dri Fit fabric is smooth and shiny on the outside to provide smart looks and easy movement underneath shells. The inside is a luxuriously soft and fluff y fleece that feels great, as well as sucking sweat off your skin very effectively.
The shaped cut is figure hugging an d the sleeves and body are long, but the flared hem can ride up under other clothes, leaving your back exposed. The mid-height collar and half-length zip keep the top comfortable in a broad temperature range when worn on its own, although it is vulnerable to thorn damage. It’s an expensive top to trash too, so watch where you wear it.
