    Be a pro at staying cool.

    There are days when you can't decide whether or not to wear a base layer and you waste time with a debate you can't answer. Craft's Cool Mesh Superlight Sleeveless Base Layer answers the question for you. Wear it.

    This is as minimal as a base layer can be. The top is made of Craft's C017 lightweight mesh fabric. Big holes woven with a hexachannel fiber gives plenty of opportunity for cooling with just a smidge of insulation. The material is also sufficiently elastic that you wear this for the advantages of a body-hugging fit without ever feeling encased.

    Even though it's sleeveless, this base layer has gotten the same attention from Craft's ergonomic experts. The paneling wraps around you, with generous arm holes and seams that wrap around you.

    The Craft Cool Mesh Superlight Base Layer comes in three colors and is available in sizes from X-Small to XX-Large.

    My first "real" baselayer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I carefully researched baselayers before buying one. Most reviewers of other products compared those to the Craft...and generally unfavorably. Can't speak to other brands but this one comes as advertised. I wear it 4 times a week with a quick hand wash after each ride. Fairly true to size. I'm 5'9", 155 lbs., and the medium fits nicely. It has loosened a bit and wondering now if I may have been better off with a small. No regrets, though.

    Sizing... runs a bit big

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    About Me: 6'0" 180lbs (Athletic Build probably around 10% BF)
    Chest 40"
    Waist 32"

    I normally buy Large in most upper body gear, especially if its a baselayer thats supposed to be somewhat form fitting. But this was just to big for me, fit me like a cotton t-shirt you find in the bargain bin at walmart.

    It was big everywhere, across the chest and across the waist. About the material, its very light and breathable, also a bit see through as well. Perfect for gym work, indoor rides or undervest in warmer climates... construction is great as well... it just don't fit.

    Returning this item for Medium

    Fabulous base layer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I now have 2 of these. The fit is great. Being a light weight fabric it molds to the body. I find this extremely comfortable on cool days as well as hot days. I now wear this on every ride.

    Swedish delight!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    I just took this base layer out its first century this weekend. It was only 75 degrees, so the cooling effect wasn't so much a factor. However, the sweat dispersion was remarkable. It kept me more arid than normal by pulling the sweat to the surface for greater evaporative drying. No chaffing.

    I love Craft

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I have many Craft base layer shirts of different weights for winter use. I bought one of these and like it so much I bought a second one. it is very light weight and extremely comfortable on a warm to hot day, especially under a light weight jersey (Craft, of course.)

    Great Base Layer for Cycling

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I may just purchase another one of these. Fits true to size. And it keeps me cool. I'm really happy with this purchase!

    Love the Craft COOL Mesh Superlight

    • Fit: True to size

    I love the Craft COOL Mesh Suplight base layer. I bought the sleeveless version and now want a few short sleeve ones, too. It is super lightweight...I tend to forget it's on, but it does a great job keeping me cool on hot days and warmer on cold days. Buy it sized for a snug fit. This one is a keeper!

    Look no Further in your search . . .

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Having bought Giordana for years, I was totally disappointed with the change to their product; after retuning it in dispair, I got a Castelli Seamless, but when I tried it on, I felt like I was in a heavy fishing net. Before giving up, though, I tried one last time with this Craft. Only thinking of Craft with my winter togs, I never dreamed that the company was a 5* in cycling apparel as well. Unlike other baselayers, this one gives you plenty of room to breathe -- so light-weight, in fact, that you barely know you have it on!

    Pretty awesome product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Although I am fairly new to base layer use during the summer months, I have to say that the other raving reviews are right on. This stuff is amazing. Does a great job at keeping you cool in hot weather and slightly insulated on cooler morning runs. I'm short, it does an amazing job at regulating you core temp on rides. Like the other review stated, I can only concur, once you go craft, you never go back.

    Buy one

    • Fit: True to size

    I've been waring a Pearl one for about two years and realize now I need another. Bought this one and am very happy. Amazing how much it helps to regulate body temp while riding.


      I read many reviews before buying this site unseen. I've used Specialized mesh, and Castelli. The Craft Cool Mesh is hands down the best base layer for hot and cool weather. The fabric is space age. It is super light weight and way comfortable. I'm sayin' way comfortable. I am 6'0 and 156 lbs and the Medium is right on. It is designed to fit snug. You don't want baggy for a base layer - snug means no rub. Once you go Craft you never go back!!!!

      Like a sponge

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is an extremely thin and thirsty base layer. Perfect for warm to hot days. Requires some care when putting on and pulling off so as not to accidentally damage the material.

      A must if You Wear Bibs

      • Fit: Runs small

      This is a must if you wear bib shorts. So light and form fitting that you don't even know it is on. But it prevents and chafing from the straps of the bib.

      Super nice fabric against the skin

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      Keeps me very comfortable for the long rides, very well made.

      Also... we all have those old jerseys we acquired over the years that look good but may not be so comfortable, this base layer solves that problem too.

      Incredible base layer for the price

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have one other base layer and two of these. My Craft Cool Mesh's are by far the superior product. They keep my torso cool even when I'm pouring sweat going up the climbs here in Colorado. I spent a week down in Texas and the 96+ degree F heat and 90+% humidity weren't an issue either. I can't get over how light these things feel and how comfortable they are against the skin, almost as smooth feeling as silk (especially compared to my other base layer). My only complaint is that a medium was a little big for me, I'm 5'7" and weigh about 162, very muscular/lean build. With how well these things circulate air around my torso I can't for certain say if the fit is too big or if thats just the way they're supposed to fit. I'd recommend these to everyone, the reviews on this page are not over exaggerated.
