At £85, the Vulpine’s Merino Alpine Jersey may not seem the best value but when you consider the extremely long lasting and hard-wearing properties of this top, it starts to make sense. Consider too the fact that merino wool is extraordinarily odour-resistant and if you’re looking for something to wear on a multi-day tour, the Alpine jersey gets double thumbs up. A full-zip jersey made from 180g merino wool, it’s versatile whatever the weather and will always stay comfy thanks to those flat-locked seams and no itchy labels. Two angled rear pockets, plus a central zipped one, and a silicon waist gripper complete the picture.
Price: £85, available from Vulpine.
