Lightweight merino-blend cycling base layer for year-round riding
Designed for all conditions, including high summer, the Merino Mesh Base Layer offers high performance and exceptional comfort. Made from an updated merino-blend fabric exclusively for Rapha, the higher merino content provides excellent moisture management and natural antibacterial qualities, with further ventilation from a lightweight mesh structure. The Merino Mesh Base Layer has a dropped tail for a great fit on the bike, while flatlock seams and raglan sleeves ensure comfort. Finished with a Rapha logo tab on the chest. Warm when damp but without the bulk of a full merino fabric, the natural antibacterial properties of wool keep persistent odour at bay.
For extra care machine wash in a garment bag to prevent any snagging on the delicate merino material.

I have the 1st Gen of this and short sleeve, still can get a little funky at one ride. Can you tell me how much the merino content has changed in this compared to the original? I imagine that would help with bacteria, etc..
I'm looking for a long sleeve base layer to wear under my jersey in hot weather that gives me protection from the sun. Is this my best option?
What is the weight?
