Armadillo Base Layer Review I

A straight forward review on the Armadillo Merino wool base layer clothing; the pros and cons, features and benefits. As always, we try to keep it as direct and short as possible without any BS!

Armadillo Merino isn't cheap but it is very effective and if you are a 'technician', they are great value for money i.e. the more you wear them and the tougher the conditions, the better the value for money you get.

Since trying to surf with the pros as a kid in Durban South Africa on my hollow 12ft ‘barge’ & getting absolutely trashed, I was hooked on sea paddling. Over a period of thirty-five years I’ve surfed, white watered & sea kayaked in locations around the world. I've guided as a full-time professional for the past sixteen years and my journey continues.
