Review Details - Shola 230 Zip
Product Review (submitted on December 14, 2017):
I have been using the Shola crew, zip and leggings since November 2016, and just got another set, this time in blue. It’s my absolute favourite base layer for autumn/winter/spring.
As others have stated, the fabric feels lovely - it’s a good weight without being bulky, and super soft to the touch. It keeps me warmer than my similar weight merino gear, and stays odour-free for longer.
It’s also really nicely made/finished (unlike Icebreaker).
The fit of the zip is nearly perfect - fitted without being too tight, long body length so no worries about the top coming untucked and letting in cold air. The arms are just long enough for me - I would prefer a little longer - but this is an issue I find with lots of tops. There are lots of nice touches, such as the zip having yak wool on the inside so it does not touch the skin. The fabric is so soft that having the neck zipped up is so comfortable I can forget it's there.
