Ceramic Long-Sleeve Base Layer
Once you've spent a late winter afternoon ripping through VO2max intervals and crawling home a damp, clammy mess after an unexpected temperature spike left you sorely overdressed, you'll have a newfound appreciation for base layers that can manage your microclimate throughout variable weather. The Giordana Men's Long-Sleeve Ceramic Base Layer is something of a winter unicorn, boasting the insulation you need to brave the elements, and versatility to keep you comfortable in a wide range of temperatures.
The star behind this versatility is the Resistex Bioceramic fabric, which is a synthetic microfiber blend that's fused with mineral bio-ceramic crystals. Giordana claims these crystals actually reflect external heat while working to maintain body temperatures. The result is that the material actively works to maintain thermal homeostasis, keeping your body in its comfort zone whether the weather is hot or cold or somewhere pleasantly in between. Capped off with streamlined, four-panel construction, this base layer is the perfect addition to nearly any long-sleeved kit.

- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
On looks alone I love the ceramic base layer, but on top of that it's a really really good piece. I've used it not only for cycling but on chilly mornings at my kids races where I'm just standing and walking around helping out, and for other outdoor activities so very versatile. I've paired it with the fusion jacket and was good in 38-52 f. deg. temps. I am 5'7" 130 lbs. and wear a S. it fits tight against the skin but doesn't strangle me. I've been using this a ton this fall and absolutely love it.
