Offering comfort, exceptional moisture transfer, and cycling specific features and fit, the updated Pearl Izumi Transfer Mesh Sleeveless Baselayer improves fit, function, and odor protection over its predecessor. This cycling specific light weight baselayer is designed to move serious levels of moisture, which can keep you cool and comfortable even on hot days. Transfer Mesh fabric facilitates the evaporative process by rapidly moving moisture away from your skin to your jersey or jacket, keeping the skin drier and releasing excess heat. The airy, high-stretch PRO Transfer Mesh fabric is enhanced with In-R-Cool® to improve thermoregulation and keep you cooler and dryer. GoFresh keeps the funk at bay and even allows this piece to be worn multiple times between washes, so you'll never have to ride without. .
Pearl Izumi is never satisfied with a simple garment, and the fit is crucial to the overall performance of the Transfer Mesh Baselayer, and the designers have constructed the garment specifically for cycling, with proper length, soft merrow seaming to reduce irritation or chafing, and the patent-pending anatomic shaping and construction that hugs the contours of your shoulders, providing a second-skin fit with greater stretch when in the bent-over riding positing. The fabric construction creates a contoured, cycling specific fit. Nearly all breathable fabrics are designed to sit directly on the skin for optimal transfer, and functional, comfortable fit is the main reason people wear a baselayer in the first place. Sleeveless may not be everyone's choice for 3 season use, but it depends on what the rest of your layering strategy is.
