Super pleased with my Craft base layers. It is the second I purchased from Bike Tires Direct in the previous few weeks. I also still frequently wear one that I purchased years ago. All base layers are excellent products and a good value as well. I have known for years that the Swedish, elite men and women's cross country teams wear Craft products when competing internationally. That was a sufficient endorsement to convince me. The base layers are also far more economical than turning up the home thermostat
I love all things Craft. I have had some Craft short sleeve base layers for over 10 years and they do not wear out. Super warm on cold days here in Northern Colorado. fits snug- I recommend to size up if you don't like tight.
I've ridden these a lot on rides where the temp goes well over 100ï¿½. Keeps you cooler than just a jersey, that's for sure. You wouldn't think they would but they do. You don't even notice that it's there except that you're cooler than without it. If I had to make a complaint, it's that sunscreen stains the neck after a while. But nobody ever sees these when you're riding so who cares, right? They go on sale every so often so keep an eye out.
I have used Craft base layers and other Craft products for many years. I keep coming back for the mechanical knit. This makes the base layers tight to the skin for greater moisture wicking but are extremely flexible. I feel warm and do not feel squeezed in anyway.
The wind stopper panel is perfect on a descent. After a long sweaty cold weather climb, I can keep from freezing on the down hill without changing into a jacket.
I do cross continent touring so I use layering to adjust to any climate. This item is a versatile light weight addition to my wardrobe.
