Wool Blend Long Sleeve Base Layer

The only thing more personal than layering choices are chamois preferences, and Giordana's Wool Blend Men's Long Sleeve Base Layer strikes the right notes of stylish tradition and functional insulation for the cyclist who likes their kit to tell a story. This base layer's story begins with its Mimosa fabric, which combines the supernatural powers of cycling's original wonder material, merino wool, with a little help from the synthetic catalogue in order to maintain a contemporary fit. The result is luxuriously basic: a base layer that insulates and fits like an upgraded second skin

Merino is a cycling staple that may no longer define the top racing jerseys and shorts as it did when all bikes were steel and cog counts were nowhere near the double digits, but there's a good damned reason why we continue to turn to it when the weather turns toward winter. It's breathable, it's the original hollow-core fabric, it stays warm if it gets wet, and it's naturally odor resistant. Every material used in cycling kit breathes and chances are good that you'll be wearing an anti-weather top in inclement conditions, so the real standout qualities for wool are the way it insulates and the odor resistance.

There are a glut of synthetics in the base layer industry described as hollow core yarns, and wool is the reason why. They're all trying to mimic wool's ability to trap countless tiny pockets of air in order to create a microclimate of warmth, and—though they've basically succeeded in copying it—wool is still the original. It also stays warm if it gets damp, so you won't pay as steep a price if you over-layer and overheat during winter climbs. This timeless material is supplemented with nylon, which holds its shape and offers more support than wool, and spandex, which helps the four-panel construction disappear under mid and outer layers by stretching as appropriate.

  • A cold-weather cycling, long-sleeve base layer
  • Merino wool with synthetics for stretch and durability
  • Manages moisture and resists odor while insulating
  • Stays warm even in the presence of moisture

While I loved the fit; nice and snug as cycling gear should fit. I'm 5'9 and weigh 162. A medium fit nice. I was disappointed with how thin the material was and in the end returned it.

Another great base layer from Giordana. It is warm and comfortable under a long sleeved jersey. It runs small, as does the poly pro base layer.

This is a very comfortable base layer that is warm on cold days, especially on windy days. It also fits nicely under my long sleeved jersey.
