In true De Marchi fashion, the short-sleeve Merino Men's Base Layer employs understated, classic aesthetics and functionality with a design that recalls the days when wool stood alone as the preferred fabric of cycling kit. Crafted in Italy out of 100% Australian merino wool, this base layer follows a close, contoured fit with wide panels and well-placed seaming that move with you as you ride. A high collar promises to stay lined up with a jersey collar as the piece works to regulate your microclimate during unpredictable early season temperatures. Better yet, merino wool's natural anti-odor properties give you the ability to wear this base layer for a few rides in a row without offending your entire riding crew at the coffee shop.
