Stay cool.

The Louis Garneau Podium Mesh Carbon Sleeveless Base Layer provides extra cooling power for hot summer rides with its highly breathable, quick-drying Carbon Ion Mesh fabric. A textured backing on the inside of this base layer keeps the fabric raised slightly off your skin, creating a cooling layer that promotes ventilation and keeps the base layer from sticking to you when things get warm.

The Podium base layer's desirable characteristics extend beyond its cooling properties. It's also soft and stretchy for a comfortable fit that disappears under your jersey, and the material's odor resistant properties fend off any mid-ride stinkiness or — dare we admit to it — unpleasant smells if the base layer doesn't always find it's way into the wash between rides.

Terrible garment - 0 stars

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium race cut

I'm 5'8 and 150 lbs and this medium base layer was unwearable. I wear a medium race-cut jersey and have a 31" waist and this was like the worst fitting club-cut jersey I've ever worn. Very tight in chest and arm holes and loose around the waist. Fabric has zero stretch and was very tight in the arm holes. I tried it again today and it was so uncomfortable that I stopped and took off the base layer on my last ride. The only reason I didn't throw it in the trash was to come home and write this review.

Look for other base layers

  • Fit: Runs small

Bill T's review is spot on. I use a medium base layer on the gore sleeveles. Both the medium and large were too snug, weird sizing with no stretch at all. Fabric is very airy but I would worry about durability as it is so thin with no give.

Big fan of LG clothing....just not this

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Xl

Similar to others feedback, the fit here is totally off the mark. Given the lack of flexibility in the material it's pretty much useless. Have drawer full of LG gear that I love, so will continue to give them other chances....but hope this is not a trend.

not the best

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I wear a Med in most everything cycling and this is snug--supposed to be. It does not stretch at all, so getting it on/off is a contortion, so maybe sizing up is best. It really doesn't seem to cool me at all in the hot AL summer weather but will be fine as it cools off. Wet it with a squirt front and back from water bottle and it works okay, tho'. I wish I had bought another product.

works fine - fit is tight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

order up a size - i am a perfect medium - 39-40" chest and 34" waist - i had to order the large (After returning the medium) - the function is fine and worked welll on a 95 deg day, armholes pretty snug as well - the Craft fits better and is made better - but this shirt is adequate
