Leaves you with the free feeling of having nothing under your jersey.

A good base layer should, at the very least, do two things: it should provide next-to-skin comfort and keep you dry. The Gore Bike Wear Short-Sleeve Base Layer offers these benefits when worn under bib straps, a jersey, a jacket -- you name it. And its reasonable price tag shows that Gore Bike Wear believes that dropping a hundred dollars or more for a base layer isn't necessary to enjoy some added comfort.

Sure, your jersey is made of sweat-wicking fabrics, but that doesn't mean it won't get clammy on hot, humid days when you're really working. The Short-Sleeve Base Layer is made of a thin and soft polypropylene/elastane blend that gives you added moisture management. Specifically, its push-pull effect draws perspiration away from the skin and to the external layer of the fabric, where it can evaporate. You won't find many seams on this base layer, but the ones you will find are flat-locked to minimize friction. The back is extra-long to provide full coverage over your lumbar region. The Gore Bike Wear WS Short-Sleeve Base Layer is tight-fitting and comes in sizes Small through XX-Large. It's available in Black or White.

base layer gore

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

fantastic feel and it works very well

can't go wrong and the price is superb

not tapered fit, boxy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

going back. Unlike gore in the past, this fits ok shoulders, baggie middle. I',m 32w, 44chest, 5'9", 160-165.

Too bad, workmanship seems ok. Got the XXL. Going back for refund. Will try the giordana when more come in. Have their forma carbon red jacket that is nice. Have it in XXL to fit over layers. Hand made in Italy. Gore shirt will work if you're box or cylinder shaped, no taper.

Runs extremely small

    When ordering base layers from other manufacturers I get either a medium or a large. I bought this in a large and it is very tight. Could have easily gotten an XL.

    Otherwise, great product.

    I found that to be very true in the women's line, also.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Excellent base layer shirt. I am in between XL and XXL and in this case I need to go with XL. Backcountry made exchange with out any problems.
