Believe the magic.
Castelli believes so much in the power of the fabric it uses to craft the Core Mesh 3 Sleeveless Baselayer that it deviated from its usual performance-related fabric monikers and named it Magic Mesh. Before you get skeptical about the fabric's otherworldly name, consider that the brand omitted all traces of less breathable Lycra when constructing the mesh, using only the most breathable polyester fibers to ensure maximum moisture management. By putting this featherweight layer under your summer jersey, you'll actually help speed up the rate at which moisture is pulled away from your skin to evaporate, helping you stay cooler and drier as you push through hot, humid air.

- Q & A
Awesome. But runs very small.
- Fit: Runs small
In my opinion, this fish-net vest is one of the best hot weather BLs made. But it runs very small.
This innovative garment is designed to keep you cool in warm/hot weather by holding your jersey off your skin; allowing cool air to reach your skin, and sweat to evaporate more easily. It works!
Wear this under your favorite Summer jersey and you *will* run cooler. It's pretty amazing.
*Another note: the cut out around the neck is much improved over the previous version (previously it was way too small).
Sizing. As Castelli vets know, usually size up +1 from your normal street size. Italian sizing is different. Here size up +2.
Anyone else have the same experience here size wise?
