Merino Base Layers?
I’m looking for a couple of new merino Base Layers as my current ones are past their best and probably need thrown out!
Which ones do people recommend?Posted 3 years ago
I’m looking for something decent quality but preferably a bit cheaper than the Howies ones.
icebreaker are good, but can be pricey. Sale just appeared on sportpursuit though!
I have some devold tee’s and long arm….lasted for 2 years so far. I wear the long one everyday in winter and the tee every day in summer to cycle to work and back, so far so good.Posted 3 years ago

I’ve never really got on well with merino base layers. Get sweaty then stay damp all day? Nice to wear around the house though.Posted 3 years ago
The Endura ones are pretty good. BaaBaa?
not sure they’re really great for mountain biking though, bit too sweaty, but perfect for hiking in the hillsPosted 3 years ago
Love my Howies ones – I’ve had them years now.Posted 3 years ago
They’ve got them in Aldi at the moment
They’re great for the money. Go a size up on your normal, as they tend to shrink slightly on the first washPosted 3 years ago
I agree with the negatives but they’re great if you’re skinny, it’s really cold or wear only a thin shell over it though (I’m only 2 out of 3 :cake: )
Can’t recommend my On-One though, it’s fine as a baselayer, but it was full of holes after just a few washes.Posted 3 years ago
icebreaker >>>> baabaa in terms of fit, smell and comfort
baabaa is a bit warmer thoughPosted 3 years ago
I have a couple of the Howies ones which have lasted for ages and don’t shrink. I bought into the whole merino being the wonderstuff bandwagon 7 or 8 yrs ago but after a winter of sweaty damp wool I went to Craft and similar baselayers, which IMO perform much better on the bike. Still enjoy the Howies and Icebreaker ones for less energetic stuff and lounging around in the house !Posted 3 years ago
I found the Endura ones slightly too warm for riding, but I am a tad chunky and sweaty. The Howies ones are well worth the investment, after two year’s use it still feels and looks like it did when I first bought it.Posted 3 years ago
Aldi!Posted 3 years ago
All the merino kit that went for sale at Aldi yesterday looked great, bought one piece of most item types excluding the headband (went beanie instead).
Typed while wearing the Aldi mid layer merino bought yesterday. 😉Posted 3 years ago
