Rapha Merino Base Layer Long Sleeve Review

Rapha Merino Base Layer Long Sleeve

What they say: Wicks moisture superbly and is extremely odor resistant.

What we say: Rapha may be a byword for style on a bike, but there’s no doubting the technical qualities of some of its garments, like this base layer. Although this doesn’t strike you as a particularly thick item when you first pull it on, the merino wool used is clearly high quality as its insulating properties soon become apparent, while the fine grade of the wool ensures it’s silky smooth against your skin.

The fit around the neck has also been designed with comfort in mind, while the generously long sleeves and general length of the garment mean there’s plenty of material to keep drafts out. Available in seven colors including dark green, navy, dark navy, cream, pink, grey and purple, and in sizes XS-XL.

Conclusion: Lightweight and insulating this is ideal for commutes. Looks great off the bike too.
