Designed for riding and racing in all conditions, the Merino Mesh Base Layer offers incredible breathability, exceptional moisture transfer and class-leading comfort. Wear beneath a thermal jersey and jacket in the winter or under a flyweight jersey in the height of summer for year-round performance. Made from a second generation merino-blend fabric, woven exclusively for Rapha, the higher merino content provides excellent moisture management and natural antibacterial qualities, with further ventilation guaranteed by the lightweight mesh structure. The Merino Mesh Base Layer is available with short or long sleeves, or no sleeves at all, and has a dropped tail for a great fit on the bike. It is finished with a Rapha logo tab on the chest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great base layer I am 1.76 m tall and 65 kg weight. I bougth the Merino Mesh Base Layer - Short Sleeve cream colour, on small size. I have a 95 cm chest circunference, so I exceded the maximun recomendation for a small size, regarding the sizing chart. In this way, the fit is really close to the body, a little bit thigth.with the long of the garment is right on the limit. For me is perfect fit, but I think some person could found it too short. The design of the garment is amazing, I really like the shape and the colour. The texture is also great. Is not super soft, and is not "silky". It has some texture and is really pleasent to wear. Regarding the range of temperatures wich can manage, I was wearing it under a regular polyester jersey. Using this way, in my opinion this base layer is ideal for temperatures beetwen 22 °C and 15 C°, on sunny days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, but unexpectedly warm Cream is a much neglected colour- and perfect for base layers. This is a great bit of kit with all the class and quality one has come to expect from Rapha - it's also far, far warmer than looks (or product description) might lead one to expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps me warm Love it - use it on winter rides, wicks away the sweat and keeps the chest warm. Wouldn't be without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should be more open minded I bought this out of desperation because of the unusually hot UK weather. (my much loved 100% merino base layers were just soaked through at the end of a long ride). The fit is snug and, compared to the silky all wool version, it seems to want to stick to your body as you peel it on and off. Works perfectly though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent base layer Bought this to replace a long-serving and much-loved similar Rapha base layer. The fabric seems even better, and the base layer performs flawlessly.

what is the expected shrinking after washing - the fit is great but a little short (I bought a Large and I'm 179cm tall)

Asked by: Berrons
The product, if the correct care is followed as per the washing instructions, should not shrink,

Hello! I'd like to know if the fabric is made from a yarn where the polyester and the merino are intermingled together or if the fabric is plaited: polyester against the skin and merino on the outside (or vice-versa). Thank you.

Asked by: Berrons
The fabric is woven together, so this is a mix between both the Merino and the Polyester.
