Apparel Review: Eider Diko Racing T-Shirt

A bargain base layer designed to maximize wicking and enhance layering

An amazing price for a shirt made with a blend of polyester and high-quality merino (called Sportwool), says our tester after wearing this versatile base layer on blustery, wet days in the 40s. He says the quick-drying crew neck fits close to the skin to maximize wicking and enhance layering. The cuffs fit slightly loose, but the sleeves easily push up to the elbows, increasing versatility in warmer temps. It also showed no pilling after multiple trips through the washing machine.

Price: $58

Sizes: men's XS-XXXL, women's 4-16

Weight: 7 oz. (called the Nares)
