Be a pro at staying cool.

Craft designed the Men's proCOOL Mesh Sleeveless Cycling Shirt to be a base layer for biking in warm conditions. If a base layer for warm weather seems counterintuitive, consider that this super lightweight mesh undershirt will help you stay cool and dry. Craft used a six-channel, hollow-fiber polyester filament to knit this fitted shirt, all these channeled fibers exponentially increase this shirt's ability to wick moisture and release body heat. The mesh knit creates air pockets on this shirt's surface that allow for maximum ventilation. Craft added an antimicrobial treatment to the proCOOL Mesh Shirt to prevent odor from setting up a base camp underneath your pits.

Pretty Awesome

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What else can you want? Lightweight, great fit, works just as described. When it is above 90 degrees this thing is perfect. And it lasts forever!

Only ok

I was really excited about these based on the reviews but when I wore it for the first time it did not keep my cool at all and in fact the extra layer made me overheat.

Is this last years version or 2012?

Price discrimination?

Is it really fair trade when Real Cyclist charges more for the common sizes, and less for others? I notice this practice also on jerseys, bibs, etc. Does this represent discrimination in retailing? Why make people pay more for the same item, because of size?

Any comments, anyone? I like RealCyclist and order frequently, but this represents a negative brand experience and causes me to look elsewhere, and I'd prefer to think I can always get the best selection and prices from RC.

Responded on

It's a fair point, but I think what you may be seeing is that the oldest version of the thing is cheaper. Last years, the year before, etc. Those are the things that get the steepest discounts. Sometimes all they have left of that is in one size, or less sizes. I agree that this is frustrating when trying to find an item, as often times they only have stuff on sale in sizes that are too big for me.

Responded on

Nyquist got it exactly right. All sizes in current season are the same price but if they have last year's colors, or some XXL's or XXS that they have had for months, the price will be lower as they are not the newest, freshest items. This is very common among any retailer and the reason you always see sales, etc. You have to keep the items fresh and get them off the shelf.

I love this baselayer and I have a couple others. I wear this one every time as long as it's clean. I have worn it on probably 30 rides and in temps ranging from 70-100 degrees. I am 5'10 and 170lbs and chose the M. Perfect fit and breathes great.

Works great in the heat

I use this when I ride in the blistering summer heat of Las Vegas and it works great as long as the humidity isn't too high.

The black close-up makes it appear the fabric is smooth on the inside. Is the fabric mesh on both sides, or just the outside?

Beat the Heat with Craft COOL

The same base layer worn by Andy, Frank, Jens and the rest of Team LEOPARD TREK! Check the video and learn how Craft COOL Mesh Superlight keeps you cool when its HOT!

Hard to ride without one of these now!

Rider Info: 6'1" 175-180lbs. Wearing a size large.

True to size as a large fits great. This base layer has been a go to on every ride now. It makes riding more comfortable, my bibs shoulder straps don't stick and dig in as much and moisture management is stellar. I highly recommend adding a few of these to your riding wear.

Perfect for the Heat

I've worn this for several Colorado blistering hot rides and it keeps me cool and dry. The anti-odor is a lifesaver. Craft makes the best base layers bar none.

Waiting for warm weather

I got this over the summer and wore it all winter indoors on the trainer. It rocks and I can't wait to try it out when the weather heats up. I had the old Superlight but this one is anti-odor so that is very nice. Seems to fit better on the sides as well. Love it! Craft make the best base hands down.
