Sherpa Adventure gear Dikila (2014)

Though the heaviest base-layer in the women’s group, the Dikila is surprisingly versatile. Using their own blend of synthetic fabrics called Dry-Zone, Sherpa have created a top which can double up in both a summer and winter wardrobe. It kept me warm on low-level strolls during the cold snaps of November, but it’s also breathable enough to cope with warmer conditions while maintaining a comfortable temperature. Its tailoring means that it is close-fitting enough to wick away sweat and moisture, but it still leaves enough breathing space to be comfortable and flattering. The zipped pocket on the sleeve is a rare but handy feature, meaning that small essentials (such as keys, coins, plasters, Tic-Tacs… ) can be kept to hand when wearing it on its own on those milder days.
