Andy Strapz Thermalz
Price – $85 top, $93 pants

Keeping warm is not about bulk but efficient layers and the best first layer is superfine Merino.

Andy Strapz Thermalz have been a staple of the Aussie bike scene for over a decade.

As Andy’s design drive is to always improve and refine his gear, the fabric has been changed from a hollow fibre poly knit to a superfine, itch free, Merino.

The fabric is very stable, extremely resistant to pilling and machine washable.

Andy’s Thermalz are unisex for him or her.
