Mens M- XXL, Ladies S - L , Various designs, colours .

Can recommend these - bought two last year for myself - ideal base layer , really comfy and toasty , washes well (even by me !) and they are still going strong a year on .

I use them as a base layer for golf and to be honest they are as warm as the far more expensive base layers I have . Will be buying 2 or 3 more at this price .

What are they made of?

What about sizing - presumably go up one size or is it go up a couple of sizes?

100% Polyester. I doubt you'll find anything at this price that's not. That's not intended as a criticism, just an observation. I imagine there'll be something similar in Aldi

Surly also ideal for cycling

According to the label on the ones I got last year - 100% polyester- No mohair for this price , though they are as warm and comfortable as the Galvin Green and Under Armour Base layers I have . Galvin Green - 93% polyester , 7% Spandex (whatever that is !). Spandex must be expensive as that base layer cost me £49 and its functionally no better or worse than the Crivit one .

Sizing about right , I got Mens Large last year and still fits nicely (as a base layer) , My other stuff Large and XL for outerwear . Will probably get XL this time round to make room for more beers and pies

Yes the GF uses them for cycling (hers not mine!) . She too wants a couple more .

These look better than the ones I got in Sports Direct last year, need something to keep me warm on morning cycling.

I'm no expert but you can think of spandex as being very stretchy material.

Unfortunately I'm going to be out of luck as smallest men's is medium, I'd definitely want small for base layer.

Spandex very BIG in 1980's, all the Hair Metal bands wore it.

Bought one yesterday.
Seems great for the price.
