Features to Note:

In-use Test:

Material: The fabric is extremely soft to the touch yet appears to be exceptionally hard-wearing. I wore this as a base layer almost continuously! on a walk-camp-walk 2 day hill-walking trip in Shropshire during March and it kept me warm and dry throughout. What's more, the odour masking is quite stunning. I really don't think I'd have felt quite so happy in a garment based on a synthetic material. Since then it's been through a number of machine washes without any deterioration in performance or fit.

Fit: (Tester - Female, 5' 7", slim build.) The fit was really quite flattering and the length is good.

Wicking Properties: I tend to 'run hot' and I found the breathability/moisture management of the Merino to be good. True - I have worn some synthetics that had slightly more effective wicking but the overall warmth and comfort of the garment more than compensated.

Buying Advice:

As a base layer this performed very well - it's extremely comfortable and has good moisture-management. It washed well initially but has since gone all 'bobbley' after repeated washings. It looks good enough to be part of your main day-to-day 'wardrobe' and it's available in a great range of colours.

At £39.50 (!) it is certainly not the cheapest on the market but if you really must have a garment combining style, performance and versatility that you will not wear too often then this is worth considering.
