/ Base-layer preventing mid-layer smell
I've been thinking of buy a fairly skin tight polartec power stretch top but the only thing putting me off is after a few days of hard use it starts to smell. Would putting a odour resistant (like Polartec cocona) base-layer under it prevent the layer above it smelling?
This might sound like a daft question but I'm not sure how the odour resistance works exactly, I have read up on it but still not totally clear. I think it should stop the smell as it stop the bacteria which causes it or breaks the bacteria down, in either case the other layers should be fine. I'm just hoping someone here knows more and can give me a more accurate answer.
Thanks in advance.
I'm actually wearing one of those this moment (about to cycle home). My experience is that it didn't last very long, some washes and it is no more or less smelly than any other polypro top. Merinos non-smellyness is to do with the material itself though so they never seem to get smelly.
