- What jerseys/t-shirts/tops do people wear for riding?
Ive got 2 merino wool tops, one a cheaper DHB from wiggle and it does the job, the other a rapha one, much prefer the rapha but both do the same job. The rapha fits better so its the first one i go for.
Rapha long sleeve merino and then a mtb jersey over the top, if its colder layer up with an enduro jacket.Posted 4 years agovondallySubscriber

What do you wear?[/quote]
for me as a heavy sweater not merino wool as a base layer, turn into a wet wool sop, synthetic all the way, do a search some threads but for me

It all still works ,but I am glad that I can’t be seen most nights.
Wicking undershirt,cycling jersey(long sleeved)and gilet.
Was a bit nippy up here today ,so it was full winter tights over bibs and the jacket was on instead of the gilet.fodmtbguidesMember

Current fave: Macpac poly t-shirt.
Colours, not too thick, doesn’t get soggy with sweat unlike merino or cotton, doesn’t snag like merino. Sleeves aren’t super short (but not quite long enough to suit elbow pads). Picked one up for about $30 (15 GBP) in a mapcpac clearance.

To go back to the original poster maybe looking at some cycling kit would be a good place to start.
For me either a Specialized vest or a Endura BaaBaa Merino LS Vest under a cycle jersey or appropriate thickness and sleeve length for the weather. Recently moved into thermo jerseys from Gore (Power Thermo) or Endura MT500 jersey. Will be going onto Softshells either Endura or Gore when it gets proper cold.Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
The main point to take from this is: I’m the only moron drenching a normal t-shirt in sweat and then getting cold as soon as I stop riding.
True, but you’re not the only dafty. I hope people realise that ‘Bamboo’ is just a way of paying five times the price for common or garden Rayon (and made using the the same process used to produce cellophane). Its very much a man-made fibre and a staple of ladies wear since the 1930s. Its main use is as a cheap substitute/filler for cotton.Posted 4 years ago
