PNS really "get" base layers. There's a huge amount of choice
out there now, but they consistently blend design and materials to
make top performers.
This season's Heavy Long Sleeve Base Layer is no exception. As
always with PNS the "heavy" doesn't really refer to the actual
weight of the garment, more to the level of insulation it offers.
This is intended for proper wintry conditions, whilst their "Mid"
base layers are more autumn-focused.
The star here is Polartec PowerWool, bringing together the best
of both worlds with a naturally odour-resistant, non-itchy and
luxurious Merino wool inner face and a tough yet soft outer
synthetic surface - all blended together into one fabric.
This makes it highly breathable and extremely practical. Fit is
snug but stretchy, as it should be, preventing any discomfort from
'bunching' under your outer garments but giving unrestricted
movement on the bike.
