CastelliMen's Prosecco Tech Long Sleeve Baselayer(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
This is my second Castelli base layer. I also own the Flanders which is exceptional. The Prosecco is perfect for those very cool but not bitter cold days. I will wear a synthetic t-shirt base layer underneath and that combination along with the Castelli Alpha RoS Light is just a killer combination. I've done rides in the mid 40s and have been warm but not hot. These products all work incredibly well together. The Prosecco material is quite fine so I wash and then dry on a hanger which prolongs its life versus putting it in the dryer.
I am really happy with this Castelli Men's Prosecco Tech Long Sleeve Baselayer !
It is light & you never really notice it till you realize it is working & working very well!
It is never hot/overheated yet keeps me warm & more importantly when working hard dry too.
Really an amazing piece as I have had many various base layers before but none ever work as well as this one
That I also got it on sale at Bike Tires Direct was a bonus! I have also come to really like shopping here at Bike Tires Direct with their Gold Member specials + VIP Points for future purchases & lastly great Price Matching Policy!
I am not sure this will be helpful as I see it is out of stock now but......Perhaps will be restocked?
In any case a very fine lightweight LS base layer. I find it has a wide temp range & use it from 45-75 degrees no problems.
It is nicely fit & does no bunch up anywhere. When cold it feels good & nicely warm yet when it heats up it feels nicely cool lifting sweat away from skin
Overall very nice & wide range of temp usage
I am a 37" chest 146lbs 5'8" & the Medium fits nicely. I may have been ok with the Small too but med is fine
I expected it to be a much heavier base layer - it is really very thin and light. It works as a light weight first layer, but it would be more useful if it was a bit heavier. Typical Castelli quality - well made and durable. Kind of pricey for what it is though. I ordered a size large and it fir me perfectly - you never know about the sizing of Castelli products as their size various considerably from product to product.
Have used twice in low 40 degree weather, ending in the mid 50s. Great moisture wicking and just enough warmth. I did have to exchange to a smaller size which is my normal size, medium. Most every Castelli clothing article is sized up. 5' 9", 170. Even the BTD service rep was surprised!
