Stierna’s official description

The Halo Polo SS top is perfect for a warm summer day, but can also be worn as an under layer. The cool anti-odour fabric is naturally anti-bacterial, which serves to minimise bad smells to keep you fresh both during and after your ride.

Harriet’s first impressions

This t-shirt look basic, but practical so should be good for everyday use.

Overview of performance

This is a particularly cool top that is very breathable and hangs off your body well. The anti-bacterial fabric meant I could ride out 6-7 racehorses and not smell at all afterwards.

Harriet’s likes and dislikes

I loved how breathable, lightweight and comfy this top is. The design is very basic and you could argue that it is slightly boring, but it performs brilliantly.

Verdict

I would recommend this base layer as a great everyday top for warmer days.
