The Vaude Thermo Base LS Shirt base layer weighs 189g (size 46); closer fit; light; excellent wicking; very breathable; antibacterial treatment; Bluesign ecological standards; perspiration zones aid moisture movement; good stretch; really durable. But incredibly expensive; cut shorter than some; only available in white or black (the former is not ideal for summer and the latter shows dirt).

Verdict: The Vaude Thermo Base LS Shirt is a fine synthetic base layer, but it’s a little too ambitiously priced.
