Mavic Wool Blend Base Layer - Long-Sleeve - Men's $0.00
With all of the technologically advanced synthetic fabrics available, why should you choose wool for your winter base layer? Well, wool is water-repellent, antimicrobial, and insulating. In the heart of winter, a base layer that does all three, such as Mavic's Wool Blend long Sleeve Base Layer is always the perfect choice.
Wool is, by its nature, an insulating fabric. But just how does it keep your core temperature regulated? It's a hydrophilic fabric. This means that it holds up to 30% of its weight in moisture before it exudes the feeling of wetness. If you've even been outside in the winter with wet skin or hair, you know how chilly it gets. By keeping moisture away from your skin and helping move it to the surface of your jersey or jacket, wool keeps you dry. Dryness in the cold equals warmth. Additionally, wool is antimicrobial. Go ahead, wear it for several days -- you won't even stink a little.
Now even though wool is essentially a magic fabric, it needs a little help to hold its shape. Mavic added a stretch knit to the base layer so that the arms won't feel baggy after a long day in the saddle and the hem won't stretch southward. Mavic's base layer features a 1/4-zip neck so that you can unzip it if your efforts get hard and you start to steam. The raglan sleeves fit comfortably under a long sleeve jersey or jacket without constricting movement and an elongated back keep sit tucked into your winter bib tights.
Mavic's Wool Blend Long Sleeve Base Layer is available in sizes Small to X-Large and in the color Black.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Love this top. Similar to other reviewer, I'm 160# and 5'10" and I wear the Medium. I like the fit, slim / tailored feel without being restrictive. I've worn this to work with a poly t-undershirt almost as often as I've worn this on the bike. Currently riding in 20s and 30s in Chicago, I wear a compression t under this, and a light Gore jacket over this - great temp control and no problems with cold spots. Good breathability, no wetness or sweat feel at the end of 30-50 mile rides.
Thinking about buying another one...
Mavic Wool Blend Base Layer Long Sleeve
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
Love this Base. Very comfortable and very warm. I'm 5'10" and 150 lbs. and the medium fits me great, form fitting but not tight. Also, looks great if you care about such things so I can certainly see myself wearing this without a jacket when the weather is in the high Forties to low Fifties.
Perhaps I'll revisit this review when the weather warms up. I'm interested to see how it breathes in 'warmer' temps (riding in the 20's and 30's at the moment.)
