So, i've 3 Lifa long sleeve tops that i love to wear under my montane extreme, but the extreme is covered with velcro, and any contact between the velcro and the Lifa leaves them looking like Steptoe cast offs, and contact is unavoidable, unless you live in them 24/7.
Fair do's, the Lifa's do exactly what i want them to do, very close fitting and wick great, keep me just warm enough without going bare skinned under the extreme, look decent in the pub when you take the extreme off for an after walk pint, but durability is shit, really shit.
So, any suggestions for an alternative that give...
No thermal properties, or very little.
Cheers in advance.

That is really gonna catch on the velcro.
I have LIFA tops and the open weave ones from about the early 2000s onwards are particularly susceptible to velcro carnage. In my case it's the closure of my crux ak30 that eats LIFA for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I'm going to suprise no-one by mentioning that subzero factor 1 survives a lot better and fits your checklist perfectly! If you buy a sub-standard on clearance you won't even care so much when it finally succumbs to the scratchy menace that allegedly caused the Apollo 13 fiasco...
Ah, they look just the ticket John.

NN, yep Bison, but where called Buffalo by early settlers.
Not till recently have they been called by NAN name.
Aw, Nick, I just did a Google image search for 'buffalo', and that was my favourite. I'm an ancient historian, not a zoologist!
Oh... I think ancient is a bit of an exaggeration
