The Base Layer for the Hottest Days in the Saddle

The Castelli Men's Core Mesh 3 Sleeveless base layer is made for the warmest riding conditions.

The open mesh design creates a breathable space next to the skin, allowing sweat to evaporate.

The 10% elastane content makes it very stretchy and helps in the moisture retention so that you're always getting evaporative cooling.

    Quality Summer Base Layer

    Firstly, thanks to all the previous reviewers this item runs very small. I took the advice of others and bought 2XL and it fits perfectly, a little long but will tuck in nicely. I'm 5ft 10in, 37-38 chest 165 lbs. Usually medium rapha jersey, large castelli jersey and large pro castelli base layer. But this base layer just about fits like the large pro issue castelli which is for me a size up already. Other than sizing I can tell merely by the design that this base layer is what you want for a hot day above 85 degrees F. I wear the normal and sleeveless castelli pro base layer in 80- 85 degree weather but above that I feel hot. The pro castellibbase layer is thinner than the core 3 but the pro does not have actual openings between the mesh just varied thickness and is very thin. This is the next level with large mesh openings. Hope this helps.

    a true base layer

    The core mesh creates an isolating layer that promotes warmth in the cold and allows heatmoisture to escape when the morning ride heats up. It fits snuggly like all Castelli products. Only drawback is the tag placement on the side, needs to be removed.

    Cool and tough underlayer - best underlayer I've owned.

    Love the fit though it is cut extremely thin. I normally wear a small but had to get a large in this size.
