    Product quality felt good but far too small. The arm length was 2 inches short and the length of the body the same. For reference I ordered a large and I’m 6’2-6’3 just under 80kg. I have ordered a large in many other Galibier products which have all fitted great.

  2. Pete (verified owner)

    I am 1.75m, 69 kg and 38 inch chest. I bought the medium- this is a good close fit. Perhaps could be slightly longer on the body. Functions well, keeping me warm and sweat free

  3. Robert Downes (verified owner)

    Hard to believe that such a light base layer can be so comfy and warm, it feels very much like one of my lightweight summer base layers, yet seems to keep me warmer than any of the heaviest warm layers I have.
    It fit’s really well, the shaping of the stitching that comes round from the side to the front makes it sit closely all around rather than hanging like a baggy t-shirt.
    I’m 6’1″ ~85kg 40-41″ chest and the large is ideal, fitted but certainly not tight.
    The navy colour is slightly petrol-y (has a hint of green to it) not that this is an issue, it’s going to be worn underneath something after all. I’ll certainly be ordering another (probably once the orange ones are in stock)

    Cannot rate this highly enough. Wore it today for the first time and could not believe the level of comfort during a ride in fairly bad conditions. It is, all at the same time, the warmest, coolest, lightest, softest and most comfortable base layer i have worn. The higher collar is really great, i could not even feel it but did not feel any cold air around my neck. Will be buying several more

    I bought this base layer after being recommended by Duncan McNutt, via his Youtube channel, he was spot on with his comments. Great base layer, the best one by far that I have. I bought the orange size large, perfect fit. Another great product at a great price by Galibier

    This is a very good investment. The best baselayer I’ve ridden in ever. Well designed with the high neck and the thin material keeps you snug. Moisture is wicked away and doesn’t leave the baselayer feeling damp next to skin.

    This was purchased on a bit of a whim, but I now wont ride outside without it on. I guess as the weather warms up I’ll change my mind kn that but in the winter it’s an absolute must. I love the high neck. Really keeps the wind out. Perfect fit as usual from Galibier. Yet another awesome product

    I got this base layer a couple of weeks ago and have to say it is now one of my favorite items of bike clothing. I was out on a club spin last weekend on a very cold morning. We encountered freezing fog,ice was crusting on our bikes and outer layers with temperatures hovering around minus 3 deg for most of the ride. Despite the harsh conditions, the chill never crept in past this base layer on a 3hr ride. I was wearing a club winter jersey and light gillet above. The high neck is a great feature on cold rides. I would recommend it highly.

    Further to my previous review bought another orange and a navy, as well as a short sleeved Galibier white base layer! Feel like I’ve discovered a personal bespoke cycling clothing merchant, and joined a special club.Keep up the good work and Ride Safe! Came very quickly in the post!

  10. GRAHAM (verified owner)

    I already had the vest type of this base layer so I know these are excellent. As a base layer this version is even better. Love it.
    I can’t recommend enough.

  11. Ethan downey

    Truly brilliant base layer, very light, comfortable and warm and love the high neck design

  12. Dave from Durham 73 (verified owner)

    Worn today for the first time, probably the best piece of cycling clothing I’ve ever bought, worn with my Mistral Foul Weather jacket fantastic. I bought an Large orange shirt, I’m 12 st and 40 chest the fit is perfect!

  13. Daniel Cavatorta (verified owner)

    Got on of these with a Mistral Foul Weather Jacket. Incredible combo, wore them in 6°C and it felt just right, could do also for lower temps. If you sweat a lot like me, regardless of the weather, maybe this combo is too much for 5-10°C and could be worn at lower temps. Overall impressed with the comfort and the softness of this base layer. Another cracking product by Galibier.

    I’ve got this in Orange, size M perfect (not thight but true fit to me as i am muscular), and honestly after many many base layers i had this one is probably the best ever. Thin and light but incredibly and comfortably warm (no sweat). On Irish November mornings (maybe 8C) i have only this below long sleeve jersey and i am happy. As other Galibier products i have design, color and materials used with this are also high quality.

  15. K N Devlin

    After a few rides in this I can honestly say it’s one of the best I’ve worn. Feels very comfortable and light, retains heat and wicks away any sweat. Bring on the cold weather.
