Alf puts these figure-hugging base layers through his tough testing regime in our latest Ski Club kit reviews.
WHAT THEY SAY: "Perfect for heat-insulating layering during winter sports. The long-sleeve shirt featuring a collar and zipper made of high-quality merino wool keeps you perfectly warm and dry. The two-layer design in the kidney area also protects against under-cooling. Strategically placed functional zones round off its functional design and guarantee a mobile and comfortable fit and quick drying. "
WHAT ALF SAYS: Here’s a base layer that’s aimed specifically at riders who push themselves hard on the mountain. This is not just because of the excellent wicking and drying properties of the synthetic fabric (a mix of polyamide, polyester and elastane), nor for the good insulation it provides, but more due to the body hugging – some would say tight fit (indeed, that’s what it says on the box) - and high levels of stretch.
