    Day One? a three-and-a-half hour mountain bike night ride with the Interval tee layered under a VRLite top. Hilly, sweaty, a little muddy too. The tee came off damp and spent the night airing happily in the bathroom.

    Next morning's verdict -

    Me: smelled surprisingly fresh, maybe a minor hint of arm-pit but that's as likely to be me as the tee to be honest.

    Her: Do I really have to do this? Prolonged sniffing. 'You just smell like you'.

    I think that's a good thing. So far, so good. The tee is now back in service and typing away happily in the OM editorial shack. I am at peace with the world and the tee.

    Well surely it cannot work out as well as a Merino base layer can do for long trails? I guess not until someone proves it does do as well, 'in battle' out upon a long trail, as it were there.

    I doubt it'll be as pong resistant as merino, but then it wicks better and dries faster. We'll see, I guess? I'm a big fan of lightweight merino for trekking and general all-round wear.
