- sorry… what base layers?
firstly sorry for such a lame question!
I have gone through a number of base layers the past year and had to bin them to being stinky!
I wash them after every ride, or there and back if commuting to work. I use Nikwax base fresh every now and then with all my base layers together.
They are still often pongy however…!
I have had a few DHB merino ones… a couple of fox polyester type ones..endura baa baas…
Am I wearing the wrong bases? Missing a trick when washing? Or just too sweaty…? Any tips?

M & S long sleeved ones work great for me.Posted 5 years ago
I have a few and find the helly hansens great. years ago they were nicknamed smelly helly’s but they sorted that with more recent fabric treatments. The only thing they lack occasionally is a zipped higher neck and I think next time its a feature I’ll look for in a base layer.Posted 5 years agoRadiomanSubscriber
I would definitely second(or third) the zipped long neck. Crew neck base layers can get stretched in the neck especially if you wear a back pack. Just bought some DHB ones which seem reasonable. The HH are very good but too pricey in my view… I have a few of those too. Would be nice if M&S made a high necked zip version of the one above. That looks warm!Posted 5 years ago
