GoLite DryMove BL-2 Zip 2009

The GoLite DryMove BL-2 Zip base layer weighs 181g (men’s M); closer fit; good use of fabric panels on back for moisture management; impressive performance in heat and cold; zip has comfort flap; no labels to rub. But shorter sleeves; seams running down back and over shoulder may annoy with a rucksack; synthetic fabric quite rough against skin.

Verdict: The GoLite DryMove BL-2 Zip is an innovative base layer that will serve you well if you’re not bothered by its quirks.
