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 Perfect in Melbourne for Winter Bought this heading into a Melbourne Winter. At 4 degrees along the beach of a morning all i need is this and a Rapha classic jersey and that is all the layering that you need. Gorgeous fit - I'm 6'4" with monkey long arms and the Large size is the perfect fit to the wrist and over the backside. I also have the merino long sleeve base and this is a far thicker material and luxurious in its feel. Best of my Rapha products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, very warm Rode with this base layer a couple of times now in 0-2 degrees C. Kept me warm even when sweaty. I found this merino base layer not itchy like many are. Great base layer overall

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.

Hello, is the material in the hood and neck area thicker, thinner, or same compared to the Deep Winter Collar?

Asked by: vincenz
Hi, the material is the same thickness in both these products. Both have a high weight of merino for very cold conditions.

Hi! Should I buy the same size I use for other base layers? I noticed the size range ends at large? Thanks

Asked by: Wintery
Hi, we would recommend you choose the same size as you would normally wear in a merino base layer. The Merino Base Layers in general come up quite large so you may wish to size down one size.

Can you pull the hood down if things warm up a bit? Is the material stretchy enough to get your whole head out through the face hole if necessary?

Asked by: OrthoMatt
The 'hood' can be pulled down over the head.
