Hooded cycling base layer created for the very coldest days

The Deep Winter Base Layer has been created for training and racing in very cold conditions. It is made from two different weights of merino-rich fabric to provide the optimum balance between insulation and breathability. The leading edges – the hood, chest and arms – are made from a heavier jersey material (340gsm) for maximum protection from the wind, while the lower front body and back panel use a lighter version of the same material (240gsm). Both weights of fabric are high wicking, breathable, and extremely soft against the skin.

The sleeves have a two-piece construction to create a more comfortable shape when riding, and are also cut long and finished with thumb loops so they can be tucked securely into gloves. The hood is designed to fit under a helmet and features a ‘frogman’ face which can be worn over the mouth or under the chin depending on conditions. Flatlock seams throughout ensure the base layer won’t chafe and white reflective tabs on the hood and chest provide visibility in low-light conditions.

The hood is a nice touch that eliminates the need for an additional balaclava or scarf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly awesome product I ordered this one as an alternative to the normal winter baselayer, although I was very skeptical. I have worked in the outdoor industry and used a ton of different baselayers.. and then this one completely surprised me. Similar designs from other brands never convinced me. But this one is warm yet breathable, it's flexible yet durable, it's comfortable yet always in shape. I'd suggest to size down a bit, as it is elastic enough and you want to have it like a second skin. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic gear and will use for years! Took me a while to pull the trigger to buy this because of the price but was well worth it. Live in Colorado and primarily use this for commute, cycling, skiing, and backpacking. I'm 5'7" and 150 lbs, the small fits perfectly. No qualms. This is now my primary base layer for all winter use. The sweat wicks very well - I have not noticed and chills while pauses in heavy activity. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it is supposed to do I've been super happy with mine. I especially like the thumb loops, which are very helpful for keeping sleeves in place, and the integrated hood. My only caution is that it can be too warm for all but the coldest rides, so if you're out in changeable weather you may find yourself slipping it off and filling a jersey pocket. Expensive, and worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Winter kept at bay by this cosy base layert I bought this in October and it has now come into its own! A real warm coating with balaclava option. This is the best base layer ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Armor Against the Winter It’s a lot more motivating to train in the winter when you know your kit will keep you warm. For 4C and under this base layer is essential at keeping the cold away. With the thumb loops and the built in balaclava all the little seams where the cold can get you are eliminated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product, highly satisfied This is the warmest of all the merino baselayers and it is quite thicker then the Winter base layer. The head protection is great, very comfortable to use.
