The Berghaus LS Zip Tech T base layer weighs 201g (men’s S); looser fit; good price; very comfy; light; generous zip for venting; quick-drying; very versatile due to warmth; great wicking action and swift drying time, so a good choice for changeable conditions. But seams run along shoulders; fabric snags and pills easily; sleeves and hem are prone to riding up.

Verdict: The Berghaus LS Zip Tech T is a good-value technical synthetic base layer that will serve you well in changeable conditions, but others are better cut and more durable.
