Middle-of-the-road luxury for backcountry warriors, tarmac heroes and retro-grouches. Odour resistant Heatwave™ Merino is cool enough to wear on all but the hottest summer days. Walk the line.
▹ Man vs Wild
Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer. It absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle and cool on your skin. However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Heatwave's polyester component repels moisture to avoid total saturation of the fabric - so it dries faster to keep you toasty.
▹ Snug-as-a-Bug Fit
Heatwave™ Merino tops are intended to hug your body, ensuring the fabric sits against your skin to wick sweat away - keeping you dry and not chilling out.
▹ Hot 'n' Cold
As a single garment Heatwave™ Merino regulates your temperature through a wide range of conditions. Delivering comfort in all but the hottest climes. Yet it is versatile enough to layer under a WindFoil™, microFoil™ or HydroFoil™ shell in winter.

▹ Why is Heatwave Merino so comfortable next-to-skin?
I recently bought a Median Strip top and have used it in variable weather conditions...it has been great. Love the long tail and the full zip, it's very comfortable to wear. For a fitting I followed your guide and it was spot on. Just looking for an excuse to by more great Ground Effect gear.
Marino cycling shirt, wear it forever and it never gets stinky, nice and warm under an outer shell. But zip it open in the heat. Feels real nice against your skin also!
This is the second Medium strip top I have purchased. I came off a few months ago doing around 30k’s and landed on concrete. My first medium strip somehow showed only slight signs of wear after the crash even though I lost some serious skin off my shoulder and back. This top is awesome and that good I had to get another!
This purchase is my third one. Wear them everyday commuting. Love the Blue and the full zip on this update. Highly recommend .
Great all round top for most conditions. Good fit.
