EDZ is a Cumbria-based specialist clothing brand that has been in business since 1995. This three-layer system is its answer to the age-old question of how to stay warm on a bike when Mother Nature does her best to put a chill in your bones.


The layers in the system are all very thin, but made from top-quality materials to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

The base layer is made from Merino wool, which is very fine-grade wool that feels soft and warm. Merino wool also has odour-resistant qualities, so it can be worn for a few days without a wash and it won’t start smelling. Great for touring as you don’t need new tops for each day!



For the cold days, the thin micro-fleece mid-layer adds warmth to the system. It’s a nice and thin layer which fits nicely under the riding jacket without feeling bulky.

The third layer is a super-thin innershell wind-stopper. It packs into a little pouch, which is no bigger than a satsuma and much lighter (about 90 grams). Just because of the thin and light nature of the product I wasn’t expecting much from it, but wearing it in the cold and wet I have been thoroughly impressed. It makes a real difference in stopping wind chill and helping you enjoy those cold rides a bit longer.



Combining the three layers produces a great overall performance that provides warmth and battles wind chill. These have become a part of my regular kit on the bike and help me keep warm even when the weather gets nasty.
