Trekmates Merino Wool Zip Top 2009

The Trekmates Merino Wool Zip Top base layer weighs 259g (men’s L); closer fit; nicely cut; very comfy; warm; 100% merino wool; odour-resistant; breathable; excellent cuffs; good thumb loops. But not so ideal for summer; very stretchy; sizes quite conservative so do try first; similarly priced Smartwool top is better value.

Verdict: The Trekmates Merino Wool Zip Top Verdict is a great, warm merino wool base layer that’s well worth considering.
