EDZ Graphite merino wool top and leggings, £50 each
Time tested: Six months
What’s good? These are a brilliant addition to my riding kit and as well as seeing me through the last winter they are still on standby for any chilly rides now the weather is supposed to be better. They are super soft, extremely comfortable, breathable and sit nicely under any kind of outer kit from Cordura to leathers. They dry very quickly and offer a lovely barrier from cold weather, although they do need layering with thicker fleeces when the weather is really cold. They roll up really small to be stashed away while travelling too.
What’s not? You can get cheaper base layers from other manufacturers and I have tried some reasonably good ones over the years (but the life expectancy of some has been disappointingly short). My EDZ kit has lasted for years without drama.
