Item # GIO0333

It all starts at the base.

Short sleeves on a base layer give you a bit more warmth on those transitional days, days when it is pretty cold at the start, and there is a promise of greater warmth. Never hurts to have a little extra protection. Besides, some like to attach their arm warmer grippers to the sleeves for a little more security there, too. The Giordana Super Light Short Sleeve Base Layer offers you all this, plus their tubular-knit, almost seamless build, and the pleasures of Dryarn, a new micro fiber, also found in their Over/Under base layer.

Dryarn is a new kind of polypropylene fiber. One that moves moisture quickly and efficiently away from the skin, and is also feathery light, has excellent stretch, and anti-bacterial to boot. It will help create a comfortable microclimate between your skin and your jersey thanks to its properties, plus the zones of differing thicknesses (or meshiness) around the top. Thicker over your chest, but thinner on your stomach; thicker on the front of sleeves, thinner around back.

The Giordana Super Light Weight Short Sleeve Base Layer comes in White. There's light elastic at the arms and waist. Sizes run from Small to X-Large.

Perfect all round

One of the best base layers you can get. I use this in spring summer and fall. Wicks the moisture away and keeps you comfy. I never used to wear a base layer until i put this on. Improves your riding comfort.

A must

I do not cycle; I bought this as a baselayer for caving. Months later, I highly recommend buying this item. I purchased it for sport trips during which I'd be constantly moving. I had no intention of using this for survey (mapping) trips, but I ended up doing so. This shirt keeps you warm for extended periods of time in 52-54 degrees(F), even if you're just sitting around (for hours). I was extremely surprised - very pleasantly surprised - to learn this. Regardless of your sport, I personally believe this is a good investment as far as a baselayer goes.

Hi Amy, your review is so very helpful! How well does this wash? Do you wash it any specific way? I.e. type of detergent, hand wash or machine... Does it snag (which I suppose for function and actually using it is would get worn and possibly snags :), fall apart with washing? Thank you so kindly for your time!

Hey Aubrey! I don't wash it in a particular way, I just chuck it in the washing machine with the rest of my gear all willy-nilly like. I always put the dial on "extra heavy" for my cave stuff (even if I pre-wash it so I don't break the machine). After two years of use, it has yet to start pilling after washing. It does snag from time to time during use since it's a mesh fabric but it has yet to rip or tear. It seems to be very durable.

Hi Amy! Just the feedback and info I was looking for, thanks for taking the time to give all the helpful details!

Great baselayer. Definitely cut with cycling in mind. I have plenty of polypro ski gear that stinks after as many wears as this piece has gone through, but somehow this one doesn't?



Stretch and face keep the fabric with the skin, I've never had any discomfort caused by the baselayer. Bonus: a good baselayer can make a cheap jersey wearable.
