A hot 'n' cold top that propels you at the speed limit across the gap between summer and winter. Its WindFoil™ front takes the edge off biting winds while the Heatwave™ Merino sucks sweat away from your skin to keep you dry and comfy. Lickety split.
▹ 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?
Bought this jersey for a multi day bike trip in a range of temperatures. Wore it every day and it stood the course. Kept me warm and not too hot when the sun shone. Very happy with my purchase. And after several days without a wash it came up like new when it did hit the machine.
My popsicle was lucky enough to spend it's first weekend riding Huck, Corners etc in Rotorua (end September 2047). I really liked the 3 pocket arrangement across the back and the long centre front zip with collar. On the cold, overcast day I rode all day in the Popsicle and was well comfortable when the rain came and the jacket had to go on too. I bought the large after measuring myself and looking at the size guide. The fit was really good and the sleeves were a good length for my longish arms. This jacket will get a lot of use on the local (Wellington) tracks.
Awesome top. Good fit, blocks the wind really well and the merino keeps you toasty and comfortable Only recommendation I would make is it would be better if the top zipped the whole way down so you could have easier toilet stops if wearing big shorts. Otherwise I love it!
Lightweight and warm - am very pleased with the Popsicle. I bought a large size so I could wear a couple of layers underneath! Good pocket options too. Only down side was the half zip - I have shoulder issues :(
I love this top. It is an awesome three season top for me and very handy for running and rogaining as well. It is the best purchase I have made for ages and I am stoked with it.
