After yesterday’s cold weather and cold ride i’m after a base layer from winter riding. In the past I’d just used a slightly thicker jersey and a thin base, but thinking I need a proper winter base layer now.
Ideally I want it to be close fitting/lycra style to fit under a jersey and gilet
Yep Craft base layers are ace. For mega warmth you might want to go for the “Warm Wool” version, though I have both & only wear the latter when it’s properly sub-zero, otherwise the Extreme jobbie is fine…eg, this morning on a 0 degree c road ride, I wore the short sleeve version of the one in your link, under a regular jersey and a gilet with arm warmers & was just about the right temp.
Yeah those Extreme ones are my go-to base-layer when it’s cold, I couldn’t get on with the itchiness of merino (tried several brands) and the Craft ones wick much better. The short-sleeve version with the wind-proof front panel is surprisingly versatile as well.
