Shedding is for Sssssnakes
You're not a snake, so why shed layers every time you ride? Regulate your core temperature with a functional base layer that keeps you warm and dry. The Gore Base Layer Men's Turtleneck Shirt is the perfect addition to your cold weather cycling kit.
A base layer is not just extra fabric. It has two functions — first, it provides a smooth, seamless layer between your skin and outerwear, and second, it wicks moisture from perspiration away from your skin keeping you dry. Gore's turtleneck features a soft brushed polypropylene material which, combined with the form fit cut, feels like a second skin. It also transports moisture quickly to the outside so that it evaporates through a breathable outer layer. Layer the turtleneck under Gore's Power 2.0 Thermo Jersey for optimal warmth and ventilation on cool wintery days.In frigid cold, add the Gore Power GT AS Jacket and ride until the sun sets.
A half-length zipper with a camlock adds a extra bit of adjustable ventilation for those long climbs that take everything you've got. The collar is close fit and a zipper garage prevents chafing. The turtleneck's seams are flatlock stitched for comfort and the back is elongated to stay tucked into your tights.
The Gore Base Layer Men's Turtleneck shirt is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and comes in Black and White.
- Q & A
Great base layer
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
I really like this base layer. It is very tight and fits like a second skin. This is what I am looking for so it works great for me. If you are looking for something loose fitting, move on.
I have used several times in the mid 40F range and have stayed warm and dry. It is very thin and tight so pulling additional layers over it is easy. This will be one of my essential base layers this winter.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: large
I ordered this base layer to wear for cycling. Based on the size chart, I ordered a large. I'm pretty slim at 6'0" and 150lbs. The item turned out to be way too tight. Perhaps I'm just not used to this type of fit, but it felt more like a sausage casing. I double checked the label on the garment to make sure it was correct, and ironically it said large (for USA) and extra large for Asia. I am Asian and it was super tight. I have a Peal Izuma Transfer base layer that fits perfectly and was hoping this would be a similar item. I ended up returning it for a refund.
