Designed to excel.
Solid baselayers are a dime a dozen, but the Showers Pass Long-Sleeve Body-Mapped Men's Base Layer is a little more than solid. It's designed to be worn under Showers Pass jackets, with open-knit venting at the center back and underarms that works in concert with the vents in most Showers Pass outerwear to keep you dry and comfortable.
It's made from a blend of merino wool, modal, spandex, and nylon to create a fabric that's naturally soft, antimicrobial, durable, stretchy, and breathable. The close-to-skin fit improves moisture transfer, and the seamless construction prevents chafing. Showers Pass also endows this baselayer with a long cut for full on-bike coverage, a wide hem to prevent it from riding up, and thumbhole cuffs to seal out drafts and moisture.

- Q & A
Great Fit, Not Much Wool
The fit is great and it seems to wick moisture well. Unfortunately, the description is a bit deceptive as the layer is only made up of 10% merino wool.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Great base layer for chillier days or for keeping your daily clothes from sweating out on the commute to work or the bar.
Super fit (snug yet articulated)! Added bonus with the thumb holes!
