Reassuringly thick but ergonomically cut, meaning you can wear it as a single layer or part of a combo. It’s also extremely stretchy.
£40, Jack Wolfskin
Ronhill Merino 200
A close-fitting but forgiving merino half-zip top that feels silky against the skin. This one offers excellent temperature regulation.
EDZ Merino 2000
Merino wool gives this an opulent feel. The weave retains sweat but moves it away from the skin to keep you warm and dry.
£50, EDZ Layering
Oiselle Flyte 2000
Semi-fitted but not constrictive, this can be worn as a base layer or, on warmer days, as a standalone garment. It’s also light and soft.

Salomon Agile Long-Sleeved Tee
Extremely light and featuring a cunning pocket in the back for keys and a travel card. Well ventilated and highly breathable.
Asics Lite-Show Neck Top
The high crew neck and extra-long sleeves on this will keep the winter chill out, while there’s a rear zip pocket and a slim cut for a close fit.
Salomon Park Long-Sleeved Tee
Bamboo charcoal in the weave keeps you from ponging on the run, while the standard cut will have mass appeal.
Helly Hansen Aspire Norviz
This looks like a dull black but reflective panels show up brightly when light is shone on them. The high neck is a nice touch.
£75, Helly Hansen
Crewroom North West Hoodie
This top, which has soft brushed fabric, can be worn on its own or with another layer. A mesh panel in the hood helps disperse heat.
