We Say – Not as compression tight as a Canterbury top, but not as loose as a regular running top, this Spiro base layer was an easy top to enjoying using. There was no struggle putting it on, but it did offer some good support as I moved. It’s also warm; my first run wearing it was a windy one along the seafront and all I had on was this top and a Spiro training jacket and I didn’t get cold at all.

I hadn’t given any thought to the elbow grips before wearing, but I did notice their usefulness after I’d come back from running and was doing some stretching and core work. You can imagine, when you’re doing a plank, or half press ups, its not a bad thing to have this anti slip feature on your elbows/upper forearms.

I’ve been wearing it now for 2 months. Presently I am in Canada and it’s around minus 20 and I use this top alongside my Odlo Thermals to give me a sturdy base layer against the extreme cold. It’s done the job well. There’s no chaffing, it feels comfy and it’s warm and it’s been washed 6 or 7 times with no visible sign of deterioration.
