Due to the low volume and ultra close comfortable fit you could combine a 150 and 190 together to form a formidable partnership for the colder months, whether you decide to use another zip neck or a crew version.

About Base Layers
A base layers job is to keep you comfortable during exercise by wicking sweat away from your skin and maintaining your core body temperature. It is extremely important during exercise to wick moisture away from your skin as quickly as possible, this keeps you comfortable and avoids you getting a chill. Baselayers use highly technical fabrics to achieve this, fabrics that include bamboo and charcoal are now becoming more common and are said to increase blood flow which in-turn increases performance and offsets fatigue. In the summer months you should wear a sleeveless or short sleeve base layer on its own under a race jersey, this will wick sweat away from your skin. When the weather takes a turn for the worse you should go for a heavier weight long sleeve base layer along with a long sleeved jersey. A breathable windproof or waterproof outer layer completes the system and will keep you warm and comfortable in most conditions.

Magazine reviews for dhb Merino Longsleeve Zipneck Baselayer M_190
Review from MBUK
The M190 is a good quality baselayer...Fit-Wise, it's plenty long enough at the back, but it's also long at the front...That excess length does mean it has decent off-the-bike looks though, and given how well the Merino wool can go the distance between washes, makes it versatile enough across several days of use. The fit thgouh the shoulders is good too.
The wool feels smooth to the touch. We really liked it for its immediately warming feel, but as with all Merino wool, the heat dissipates when you start to work hard, which means that you stay comfortable.
Merin wool comfort and quality that comes at an excellent price.
Review from road.cc
DHB have completely overhauled their clothing range for winter 2011, essentially going back and designing a whole line-up of new products that includes several superfine merino wool base layers.
We've been riding in the Merino Zip Neck Long Sleeve Baselayer in DHB's M_190 fabric. M_190? It means it's a 190g-weight fabric, as opposed to the M_150 fabric that's another option in this same design. The M_150 version (£36.99) is obviously a little lower in bulk; the M_190 one provides a little more insulation that's the top and bottom of it. They're both 100% merino with no synthetics added into the mix.
As well as the zip neck model, DHB are offering a Short Sleeve Tee in the M_150 (£29.99) and a Long Sleeve Tee in both fabrics (£31.99 and £34.99). Most of these are also available in women's cuts at the same prices. Get all that? Cool.
Okay, so what you get here is a slim-cut base layer with plenty of stretch the side panels are extra springy so whatever your shape, you get a body-hugging fit without it feeling tight. We've found both the arms and the body plenty long enough to keep us covered and the collar is generously high too. That's good news; cold air over your neck in winter can leave you nursing stiff muscles for ages.
The zip is a high-quality offering from YKK so it's unlikely to die on you any time soon, and a chin guard up top stops any scratching. The seams are flat stitched all of 'em so you don't get any annoying ridges, and the build quality is spot on.
Hit the road in this base layer and the first thing you notice is its warmth. It really is toastie in there. You might well find yourself wearing fewer layers if this is one of them. And there's no reason why you couldn't use it without an outer layer over the top for autumn and spring rides, as long as you can cope with the absence of pockets.
It feels soft and comfy next to your skin too. This is nothing like that scratchy Brillo Pad wool they used to buy off the devil and knit into school jumpers it's almost silky. Lovely!
When it comes to keeping you dry, merino behaves differently from synthetic fabrics. You do feel this base layer, like any merino garment, getting heavier with moisture than, say, polyester or polypropylene when you sweat hard. Fact. And it doesn't dry nearly as fast, so if you get it too damp early on in a ride, it might well stay that way until you get home.
On the other hand, it's true that merino has pretty good wicking capabilities to stop it getting waterlogged in the first place, and it's also true that it'll still keep you warm for a while even when it does get soggy. Plus, this top doesn't start to stink a few miles into a hard ride, or retain odours after washing like many manmade fibres.
We've tended to use this top on lower intensity rides when we've wanted a lot of warmth not for hill reps in the sun and it's kept us super-comfortable on these. And with no pockets to drag it out of shape, we've not noticed any stretching over the course of our rides, or any shrinkage during washing. It's had a good few spins through the machine now 40°C, no problem and we've no reason to think it won't stand up to the rigours of regular use just fine. We'll let you know if there are any changes on that score.
Overall, this is a very impressive merino base layer with a great cut and a high build quality. For 40 quid you really can't go wrong here. DHB are going to clean up with this one.
Super-comfy merino base layer made to very high standards and a killer price
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
If I was to buy another I'd get a Medium.
I'm a 41" chest and the medium fits me fine.
It's a nice garment.
Having washed mine a few times it doesn't appear to have shrunk at all.
I'm 6'3", chest 42 waist 34 and the large fits great
Large if you want it with a bit of 'wiggle' room . (hahaha see what I did there)
I'm a 42 chest and 6'1 and I got a Large and though I'm happy overall I think next time I'd go for a Medium.
But compared to my non merino tops
They wick very, very well.
Also feels nice next to the skin and stay comfortable even when wet.
The Merino sheep breed is a tough sheep which can handle Australia's extreme condition. Merino sheep have an extra fine wool.
All dhb merino has a yarn diameter less than 18.5micron – which makes It soft against the skin.
You could have just let me know that 2 days ago though Alex?
Being Winter wear can this be lightly tumble dried???????
spin dry enough to hang
or flat dry
remember to pull the garment to size
do not use a tumble dryer
it will make the wool shrink!
These tops are very lightweight and will dry overnight if you hang them up indoors
Dry flat in shade
Do not tumble dry
I just dried mine on a rail - it was dry in a couple of hours.
Should I buy a MEDIUM for the length or will it be too baggy for a decent baselayer fit?
Is the SMALL long enough, anyone have any more measurements?
Get the 190 as it is still very thin.
You can open the neck for warmer areas and as you heat up.
I had no issues with sweating (but it was quite cool -10 to -20c :-) I wore it for 6 days with no wash and no complaints.
I teamed it with a 200 Fleece and a gortex shell. It would be toasty warm with a down jacket up really high. This is warmer and cheeper than my Icebreaker GT 200, but The IB would be more hard wearing..... good luck.
I'd say this would be just fine for trekking.
Fill your walking boots.
great value and quality.
