Description

Transfer Long-Sleeve Baselayer

As summer rolls into fall the days get shorter and our cycling sleeves get longer, and even though it doesn't necessarily add insulation, Pearl Izumi's Transfer Long-Sleeve Baselayer is still a must for transitional weather in the shoulder seasons. We find that a classic, long-sleeve thermal jersey is adequate for temperatures into the high 40s; however, sleeveless base layers leave something lacking in the moisture management department. This is especially telling with thermal fabrics, whose brushed inner faces often don't manage moisture as well as their summer-weight counterparts.

The Transfer features a charcoal-infused front panel, which helps to speed evaporation in order to eliminate sloppy, clammy moisture. The back panel is a lighter material that stretches to accommodate a second-skin fit, and the Speed Sleeve construction facilitates forward reach, so it's most comfortable while you're stretched out on the hoods or whiling away the miles in the drops. The different panels are cut for an anatomic fit, and they're sewn together with Merrow-style overlock seams that lie flat and comfortably against skin.

The Long Sleeve Transfer acts as the perfect thermal jersey wingman by supplementing the latter's wicking abilities and helping to ensure that a clammy chill doesn't undue the jersey's insulating properties. As the temperatures fall to wintery depths and you switch to a full-on windproof jacket, the Transfer Long-Sleeve follows. It's also light enough that it doesn't interfere with layering strategies, so you can plan your winter wardrobe without worrying about accounting for the added warmth or bulk of a thick base layer.

  • A lightweight cycling base layer for use under long-sleeves and jackets
  • Moisture-management helps keep you dry when damp means chilly
  • Low-profile material layers easily without undue bulk

    Feels nice fits small

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

    I like the material of this base layer. It feels nice on your skin and keeps me fairly warm when I wear it with just a jacket. However, it fits smaller than what I thought although I may be a little more top heavy for a cyclist. It seems like it was made for someone with very small shoulders. Once I started riding it did not cause too much of a problem, although I wish it was a little bigger. I should have gone with the XL. I also don't understand the purpose of the thumb loops.

    Too tight and I will have to return. I am thick in the shoulders, so it was just too tight. Even for a base layer.

    Odd fit

    Familiarity:
    I returned this product before using it

    I found this to be odd fitting. I bought a M and the measurments were spot on for me in that sense. It sits weird for me tight in some spots and loose in others. I ended up returning this.

    Helps keep me warm on cold rides

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times
    Fit:
    True to size

    I use this on cold rides: temps in the 20-30s. The little thumb loops are the bomb.

    >Rating: 5

    Good fit, thumb loops I actually use

    NIce construction and fit, and it had thumb loops I actually use - they are separate loops that come off the edge and its actually comfortable using them.
