Daniel Neilson tests out a diverse range of base layers. On test Wild Stripes The Shorty base layer

Wild Stripes is a small company specialising in good quality baselayers that are, yep, stripy. No bad thing of course, if they work well. This short-sleeve version is made from a thick-knit polypropylene and good to maintain core temperatures, but a bit warm for summer though. The seams aren’t flatlocked, but the price is good. It’s very light too.
