A soft, lightweight Merino baselayer that will naturally keep you feeling warm, dry and fresh.
Any functional travel outfit needs a good baselayer to make it effective and keep you comfortable.
Designed for adventurous travel and outdoor activity, North Ridge's Convect-200 Merino LSZ Top uses the wool's natural antibacterial and thermo-regulating properties to keep you cool in summer, warm in winter, and feeling fresh all year round.
Made from 100% Merino Wool 200gs it'll make a great baselayer for every season, whether you're exerting yourself outdoors or just relaxing at home.
SOFT FEEL: Merino wool is roughly 1/7 the thickness of human hair, so it feels extremely light and soft on the skin HEAT RETENTION: Its fibres trap tiny pockets of body heat for extremely effective insulation BREATHABLE: Merino can absorb up to 35% of its own weight in liquid, allowing sweat vapours to pass through MERROW STITCH SEAMS: Reduces seam size for extra comfort, helping prevent chafing WICKING & QUICK DRYING: Moisture naturally moves away from the skin and out through the fabric, keeping you dry and fresh ANTIMICROBIAL: Natural antimicrobial properties make merino wool very resistant to odour

Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.
Collar: Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.
Chest: Measure the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms.
Waist: Measure the natural waistline.
Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn on the shoe.
Jacket Length: Measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. The length measurement will vary depending on the style.
Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.
I have used this top both hiking and on long distance fell runs. I found it's wicking abilities on the run to be excellent, it was commented on by the group how well it was performing. I would recommend to anyone wanting an affordable priced Merino top.

N Ridge Convect-200 merino LSZ top
This is an excellent product, close fitting but not tight, warm and light. I've used it extensively on multi-pitch rock routes in Britain and the Dolomites because it can be rolled small and carried round the waist easily, then quickly put on for belaying or if the temperature drops. The zipped top is also very useful for temperature control. My wife also has two and uses them all the time for riding; she finds them ideal.

North Ridge Men's Convect-200 Merino LSZ Top
I work in air-conditioned room and it can get really cold so I was looking for Merino wool top and saw this on go outdoors website. As it was in the sale I thought I would give it a go,so far so good.It is a lot warmer than mine over traditional thermal tops it also washes well and keeps its shape. I am thinking of buying another one and would recommend it.

This seems a decent warm base layer but having only worn it three times a rip appeared in the arm around the bicep. Possibly as the garment is tight fitting the rip occured when rearranging the sleeve having donned a midlayer on top of it, but any garment should be able to withstand a bit of pulling. Very poor. Unfortunately I didn't keep the receipt so I probably won't even manage to get my money back,

North Ridge Men's Merino top
I'm a great fan of Merino wool products. With winter coming, I was on the lookout for some warm gear. I came across this top, It's well made and feels very comfortable next to the skin; it was on sale at £25, which, in my mind, was a real bargain! It compares well to more expensive merino wool products I already have and the fit and cut of the garment was very good. This garment will function well on its own keeping you warm in cooler climes as well as working well as base element of a layering system in colder climates.

North Ridge Merino Base Layer
I am so pleased with this product. I have been looking for a replacement base layer which is both comfortable and warm which does not restrict my movement as many do.
I have found the perfect match from North Ridge

Bought both the top and bottoms to keep me warm while I stand around in a field in the middle of winter. Happy with my purchase as they certainly help keep me warm in around 0.5 degrees C temperatures and feel very comfortable. Not cheap but worth it in my view, would buy again if I lost them.
