Sport Long Sleeve Top

A quality base layer has one job only: moisture wicking. This long sleeve version keeps your skin dry for long off-season rides in chilly weather. Giordana is best-known and best-loved for bridging the gap between pro-quality construction & materials and reasonable pricing. Their base layers are a picture-perfect embodiment of Giordana at its best.

  • Long-sleeve top keeps you dry and comfortable
  • Polyester excels at wicking away moisture
  • Cotton addition increases soft comfort
  • Freshguard treatment resists the buildup of odors
  • Semi-fitted design minimizes bunching

You get what you pay for

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

I should preface this by saying that I'm forever stuck between a medium and a large in almost all brands. The Medium size has a good fit in the chest/body, but feels very narrow in the shoulders/armpits, very short in sleeve length (maybe that's so it'll fit under long-sleeve jerseys? I don't know). If I sized up to a Large, I feel like the body would start to get baggy but the shoulder width and sleeve length might be more appropriate. Slim cut, but not fitted, and not very stretchy material.

Fabric is pretty lightweight, and reasonably breathable. Wicks sweat just okay, I would say a good temperature range for this base layer is 60-75*F (16-24*C). Definitely not recommended for properly chilly conditions. My main concern is durability. I have noticed a significant amount of pilling beginning on one sleeve after one use and a gentle (hand) wash. Time will tell.

I wish I could say this was a steal at $35 that works as well as fancy expensive base layers, but alas it isn't so.

Poor quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I purchased 4 of these long-sleeve base layers. I have worn each one less then a dozen times and two of the are already falling apart at the seams. One of them developed a hole at the seam under the arm after only wearing it 2 times. The other first developed a hole in the shoulder seam after wearing it about 6 times and while putting it on the this morning I found another hole at the seam in the wrist cuff. I do not recommend anyone buy these.

Great for Chilly Weather

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this as a gift for my dad. He opened it and left immediately for a bike ride. Upon his return, he said it's perfect for fall and spring on its own, but for winter time you might want to bring along another baselayer.

sizing? does it run small? 5'8, 145 lbs, thin... would I be a S or M?
