The Women's Transfer Cycling Sleeveless Baselayer is a summer weight cycling baselayer designed to keep you cool and comfortable on hot days. P.R.O. Transfer mesh fabric facilitates the evaporative process by rapidly moving moisture away from your skin and the back of the baselayer has mesh panels to maximize ventilation. Wear this sleeveless baselayer under a short sleeve jersey during the heat of summer, and then add it to your layering system during chillier months.
Cycling base layers (the mesh or technical fabric kind) drive me nuts. They're ridiculously overpriced for what they "are"...undershirts. Thin, really useful, wicking undershirts. There's a limit to how complex or engineered they can be, yet you can easily pay $80+ for a premium label (Rapha, Assos, Ornot). That being said, cycling base layers like this one do have some special features that make them worth paying a few more bucks than you would for a regular dri-fit type t-shirt. In this case, the seams are flat, curved where they should be, the neck is high enough to cover my upper chest, the armpits aren't huge/too large and flappy, and the fabric has enough stretch that it can fit closely under a jersey. I should've bought a medium for that very reason, I'd like to have a slightly tighter fit under my bibs, but that's not the shirt's fault. For the price, it's a good base layer from a pretty reliable brand, and it doesn't have any of the wonky Asian sizing problems the brand sometimes brings.
I'm a 36 bust, 29 waist, so ordered a M per the chart. I read the reviews and expected it to be fitted, which I wanted for layering. But it's downright tight, and has ZERO stretch. There is so little room that it's uncomfortable to get on, and rolls a bit at the waist. Disappointing.
This came highly recommended from friends as sweat wicking for those winter train rides. Did not disappoint and I hope to buy one of two more. Since it’s a base layer it does fit close to skin. If you want more room, size up.
This base layer does fit small as in tight and fitted to the skin. That was expected. The problem I had with this was the length. Too short. I’m a taller girl and need a 2-3 more inches in this. I can’t even tuck it in unless I wear a bib. It also does roll up. I like Pearl Izumi but this product was a fail for me.
Great fit, true to size for PI. I love that it’s not super long so it lays flat when tucked in. The arm holes are large enough, without gaping. Just be aware there is no stretch. I saw comments about manufacturing errors with the tag on the outside, but I believe that it just so the tag isn’t rubbing on your skin.
it's small It also came with a factory defect! the details of the size that are on the neck are on the outside and the labels were also stuck on the outside!
I like this top and sometimes wear if just for extra warmth under regular close. It is tight fitting as it should be for wicking purposes, and being an underlayer. Bought for a very good price as an add-on. I'm 5'4" at 122 lbs and a medium size fit well.
Too small and tags are on the outside.
