Ronhill Infinity Merino review

Women's-Ronhill.jpg

www.ronhill.com £43.49

Made from a 50:50 merino and polyester blend, this long-sleeved zipped top is soft, light and breathable with good stretch. Double-thickness fabric around the collar and thumb loops adds extra comfort, while the deep locking zip gives good ventilation. Flatlocked seams with contrast stitching and a stitched logo give it a smart look.

Verdict: 8/10

Smart, light, breathable, well featured and great to run in.

Montane Dart Zip-Neck review

www.montane.co.uk £32.39

Featuring powerful odour-resisting Polygiene (it’ll go a month between washes), the Dart is a soft-feeling top. The wicking properties are great and it'll work as a layer or solo shirt in all but the most brutal conditions. It may be a little heavy for super-hot weather, but it's well suited to most British hill and mountain conditions. 

Verdict: 9/10
Good shirt, great price, ready for most conditions.

The September-October 2018 edition of Trail Running contains plenty more long-sleeve, half-zip tops reviews.

Inov-8 AT/C Men’s Mid-Layer review

www.inov-8.com £47

Designed to cope with alpine trails, this 220g top is best worn on top of a base layer or under a shell. Made from 87% polyester and 13% elastane, it retains shape when stretched so offers good freedom of movement. The half-zip lets you regulate body temperature, making it suitable for both cool mornings and warm afternoons.  

Verdict: 8/10
Adaptable top suitable for a wide range of temperatures.
