Thanks for all these replies - following this I'm thinking of taking the advice and going for a merino base layer such as this Endura one reviewed in Bikeradar. I can see that it is warm in the winter, but anyone confirm for me whether this will be also use-able in the summer to help keep me cool?
A slight highjack here........A quick question about washing - ive noticed as with alot of cycle clothing (the above icebreaker too) that you shouldnt use fabric conditioner, why is this ?
Wiggle have got a sale on the Helly Hansen long sleeve base layer
I'd been thinking about getting a base layer for the winter and am pretty sure that HH is well-reviewed. Is this one any good?
