    any idea’s for a long sleeve zip up heavyweight merino. please.
    and thank you.


    A zip up cardigan?

    A trip to TK Max will reveal any number of merino jumpers, made of the same stuff as the bikey ones.

    Helly Hansen Warm Freeze is excellent imo.

    Its Lifa on the inside & Merino wool on the outside, nice & toasty! 🙂

    Icebreaker do some lovely heavy stuff. Not cheap, but very lovely.


    crikey, I had a moment of realisation last week about TK Maxx. I have two Jon Smedley jobs that I picked up for £30 a piece. One of them is bound for bike duty.


    TK Maxx in Manchester had some IceBreaker Full Zip tops in the other day, still £149 but were heavyweight and very nice looking, over my budget though. Might be worth trying your local one…

    All my icebreaker stuff had got holes in it from very little wear. The howies stuff that gets abused with mud, grit and my smelly Arse wearing it seems to have survived through it all. Anyone else seen that?
    Personally would go for howies Merino at whatever weight.

    Premier Icon ton

    got a thin icebreaker which I don’t like, but that helly jobbie looks like the ticket.
    that is the kind of thing I had in my mind’s eye,

    HH Warm as above – awesome.
    Mrs_OAB has a Patagonia expedition weight capeline, that too is silly warm and wicking.

    the on-one stuff has treated me very well.


    Icebreaker. I own lots and they last 10yrs+. Wear to work all weekend throughout winter. 240gm? Sounds right for you.

    My 240gm one- is black with white stripes on the arms. Any winter riding pic has me in this top 🙂


    I have one of these from Embers


    It’s a 260 weight with looped back
