cheers for the info folks - have looked at the ones mentioned, and was close to getting the embers one, but then decided to try a Ground Effect one, as I've met the guys there and they're a good bunch. Plus, the stuff of theirs that I have used has been very good...
Long Sleeve Merino base layers?
Just got a Fat Face long sleeve merino base layer from Cheshire Oaks outlet reduced from Â£40 to Â£12, looks and feels just like my Howies. Bargain.
"Ive got two endura merino base layers and I don't see what the fuss is about,"
Nor me. i had the endura one and thought it was a bit rubbish. it got wet quickly and stayed wet; it wasn't that warm once wet either. it took ages to dry after washing and still smelt, not a problem I've had with HH Lifa stuff or an ancient karrimor base layer. after about 6 rides, the buckles of the shoulder-straps on my endura tights made holes in the front of the top and I got a refund. I'll be sticking to manmade fibres for the moment.
Hallelujah, thought it was just me.
How about one of these, only Â£25 +p&p... hang on, that logo looks familiar...
GO TEAM CRANE!
You would think i was sponsored by them, some of their stuff is just really good value mind.
Chocolate Fish (short for Chocolate Starfish perchance?) has the shittest website I've seen for ages.
Try TK MAxx, dri as a bone ones for 20.00 looked nice.
Personally as a zidane tpye sweating individual I prefer merino wool and have tried several for me what works is
kona tfiosi went like felt and was rubbish
endura halcoyn ok
Howies complete tosh and drivel, no properities at all cold wet and shapeless.
On the 'helly smelly' side I would recommend Decathlon gear especially the skins stuff high quality and cheap works better than 75% of merino wool tops
my shirt is from Howies and is excellent... great colour too (not boring black)
Glad they work for you, in our family all 4 were useless....................well they make good but expensive dusters.
Maybe they have improved in the last 3 years
Sorry also have a very old but still great submerino from ground effect
