Alf tests both the top and bottom half of the Bergans Soleie base layers - part of their Ultralight series of merino wool garments.
Soleie Half-Zip Base Layer
WEBSITE: Bergans of Norway
WHAT THEY SAY: "Soleie is part of the ultralight series, Bergans' lightest series of woolen garments developed for use in all kinds of weather – also in the summer. Soleie is composed of thin and light garments that are ideal for training regardless of weather and temperature. Merino wool has a unique temperature-regulating ability. It makes sure you're cozy and warm in the depths of winter and cools you down in the heat of summer. Merino wool is also exceptionally good at eliminating odors. Go for Soleie when you're looking for a basic garment that can be used all year round. Soleie is suitable for stand-alone use or as the innermost layer right next to your skin. Ideal for multilayering!"
WHAT ALF SAYS: The Soleie is part of Bergans' ‘Ultralight’ series of 150g/m2 pure merino wool garments Bergans' developed for use in all weathers. It’s pretty basic in design, just like the matching Soleie tights. The looks are plain and rugged, with little more than understated contrast stitching and logo to make it stand out – but since it’s a base layer that’s fine.
