Model: FuseKnit Comfort Blocked Round Neck Long Sleeve

Our take Redline efforts demand a baselayer that can keep up with redline sweat. This lightweight, affordable piece delivers, thanks to its quick-wicking, quick-drying blend of 53 percent recycled polyester, 43 percent nylon, and 4 percent elastane. “On a 20-mile skate-ski near Montana’s Chief Joseph Pass in the single digits, I stayed dry and warm,” one tester says. When you’re not moving, the FuseKnit is cozy down to the 30s under a medium-weight midlayer.

The Details Tall testers appreciated the longer-than-average sleeves and hem, which layered under gloves and waistbands without riding up, and the snug-but-not-skin-tight fit that helps siphon sweat. And stink resistance is decent for a synthetic, letting us wear the FuseKnit two to three days before it got ripe.

Trail cred “I donned this baselayer for a winter’s worth of trail running and skiing, often while wearing a backpack, and it still looks and feels new,” notes a tester.
