Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base layer Used all summer for hot and cooler days works perfectly under either a normal brevet jersey or a flyweight for hotter days. I am a big fan of the normal merino base layer and feared this would not match up but I would suggest it is even better for wicking away sweat. Great quality and great performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KEEPS YOU COOL EVEN IN TROPICAL HEAT! I was skeptical purchasing a black base layer since I ride mostly in the tropics but this kept me cool as well as the light coloured ones. I like the the texture of the merino mesh compared to the regular merino layer and I think it works even better at wicking the moisture away from your body. One important note is that I find that this does not stretch as much compared to regular merino base layer. Great product overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revelation Bought three as a bundle and 3 of the weight above and will never cycle without one. No more sweat rash issues or feeling a bit cold on the descent. Add so much to traditional tops and means you do not need to put a gillet on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've been riding for 35 years and worn just about everything. For me, this top fits perfectly, snug but not uncomfortable, doesn't bunch under my jersey, and is just warm enough to wear on a cool day of 55' or so. For reference, I wear a size 42 jacket and the large fits me. (American sizing).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mesh is Misleading Sure, this is technically a mesh sleeveless base layer. However, it feels more substantial than that would suggest and is really perfect for really warms days, of which we've already had a few this year. I'll buy another for the days when the regular merino base layers are too much.

How does the sleeveless merino mesh base layer compare to the pro team sleeveless base layer for wicking, warmth, ventilation, etc?? Thanks

Asked by: scurl74
Hi, both these base layers are similar in wicking and ventilation but the Merino Mesh Base Layer will be warmer. Also merino wool has naturally antibacterial properties and although both synthetics and wool have the ability to wick, only wool has the ability to wick away moisture in its vapor state.
