Time of year when a young mans thoughts turn to base layers and while I cant get out on a bike at the moment I'm still well enough to get cold. Trouble is I'm tall and thin so every base layer top I buy has a hem that sits above the navel and sleeves which end around the elbow. 'S cold you know, can anyone vouch for proper long long sleeve undies (trews too if you know of any)?

Thanks

Fred

have you tried Icebreaker? I am also long limbed and find they are one of the few brands where and XS has adequate sleeve length. Try www.natureshop.co.uk

I tested a long sleeve Craft base layer last year - I actually took a point off because it was ridiculously long. It might be ideal for you.

That does sound promising! Thanks. The Icebreaker seems to be short sleeved.

Yeah, try Craft. They're long in the sleeve and body, do a great job and they're not mega-expensive.

Do you want mine? Hardly worn (for reasons stated above) and I'll give it a bonus wash just to be on the safe side. Drop me an e-mail and I'll post it to you.

Jolly good. It'll come to my work address, so I won't get it until Monday. Will pack and post next week.  1
