The Lundhags Merino Polo base layer weighs 230g (men’s S); looser fit; 100% merino wool; very comfy; excellent freedom of movement in the arms without riding up; superb, warm cuffs; high collar; warm; doesn’t smell; well suited to cold weather. But rather warm for summer; merino tends to soak out; zip shorter than some, which hinders ventilation; slightly coarser weave than other merino tops.

Verdict: The Lundhags Merino Polo base layer is a good-quality, well-made merino top that’s ideal for cooler weather.
