What they say: The lsoler Merino baselayer provides unrivalled moisture absorption.
What we say: You get the feeling that Madison designed this to be a versatile garment that you could wear just as easily off the bike as on it. Certainly, its easy fit (although Madison describe it as performance), its simple good looks and the fact that it’s made from odor-free merino wool means that this would definitely do a job for you if you commute by bike and your workplace has a smart-casual dress code.
On the bike, it did an impeccable job during chillier jaunts working well with other layers to keep things toasty. It’s not the softest merino base layer we’ve ever donned, but it still manages to afford plenty of comfort thanks to the fiat-lock stitching used throughout. Available in either black or blue, in sizes S-XXL. It was also listed at 38% off the price given below at the time of going to press, making it $35.99 and- for a merino wool base layer – a blimmin’ bargain!
Conclusion: A versatile all-rounder that will serve you well on or off the bike. Has a limited lifetime guarantee, too!
