I believe what you are referring to is the Brynje Arctic Zip Polo which indeed is an merino outer and a mesh inner. Didn't know that it was completely synthetic, thank's for the heads up to that. I do have that garment as well, but I wouldn't use that for cycling, as it simply would be too warm. Solely wearing the mesh shirt would be the ultimate, in my experience, as it fits tighter and from what I have experienced wicks moisture better. The mesh undershirts supplied to...

The best undergarment I've ever worn is the ones used by the Norwegian Army.

Going out to kop frozen pizzas.

Thanks It is quite heavy, about the same weight as the Stark, I reckon. I normally just use with a t-shirt and shirt under a jacket, but could probably be used alone as a jacket as well.
