A layer of luxury comfort

The Merino Mesh Base Layer will improve every long sleeve jersey and jacket in your wardrobe. Wear it with a jersey in the spring and autumn, and it will work hard to keep sweat away from your skin and lower your core temperature. Pair it with a jacket in inclement conditions, and its exceptionally soft fabric will keep you warm and comfortable without the need for a midlayer. And on the worst days, when you feel the need to wear every layer in your possession, this will be the first thing your reach for.

The fabric’s high merino content makes it naturally anti-bacterial, and it’s the quickest drying of all of Rapha’s base layers, making it the perfect choice for long rides and multi-day trips.


  • Highly breathable merino mesh fabric weighs just 90 grams per square metre
  • Merino content makes the fabric naturally antibacterial
  • Quickest drying of all of Rapha’s base layers
