- base layer
I like the quality and performance is good, had to buy a size larger as they seem to run pretty tight. Returning item for different size was very easy, Pactimo’s customer service is quick to respond via email, but could never get anyone to answer the phone when I had a question. But it is all good
Great! Base layer that is super lightweight and keeps me ridiculously warm. Perfect compliment to the early morning sub-40 degree ride with a long-sleeve Pactimo jersey.
During the winter in Southern California I wear the the merino wool base layer on and off the bike. It’s comfortable and warm, but not too warm. My closet is full of these Pactimo base layers.
As a San Diego rider with no winter riding kit to speak of I recently turned to Pactimo to solve that problem. Last week, with rain threatening and a start in the 40s, with the mid 50s expected, I headed out on a 160 miler with my new threads. I had the wool base layer under my new Storm+ long sleeve jersey and that is where I think I made my mistake. Both garments are so warm that I quickly sweated out. Happily, even though the wool was damp all day, I never got cold over the entire 10 hours. Nice. I think if I had been wearing a short sleeve jersey that could let some moisture escape I would have dried out and been fine. I think for a true cold weather ride this piece would be a must. I will be judicious as to when I use it in the future as it works to well! The fit and finish are near perfect.
This is a nice base layer, does the job.
Wow! Just when i needed to upgrade to a fine base layer these came on sale and had my size available. For me, a base layer is essential to contain perspiration and give support where its needed. It is comfortable, sized perfectly for my build and has kept me warm during cooler rides. It was a great idea to purchase two.
I'm 6' 170 Lbs I purchased a large size in the High Grade Wool Base Layer - Men's. It fits a little snug but is very comfortable while riding an under another layer or two. It whisks away perspiration well and remains dry or the exterior. I have this in long and short sleeves and they both help to keep me warm on long winter rides.
This purchase started out with me ordering based on the size chart (Large); received promptly (shipping from Pactimo is first-rate), but the Large was simply not large enough for my taste. It could work, but I wanted a little more room. Returned (at no cost), and received the replacement (XL) roughly a week later; again, their returns/refunds/shipping are all TOP NOTCH! On to the garment: I like the fit of the XL and the feel of the wool/poly blend material, and after wearing it for the first time today on a crisp late winter/early spring morning ride (OK, it's SoCal, it's not really cold) I am sold. The fact I got this thing for a steal on sale is icing on the cake! Definitely would recommend to others and would buy again.
Excellent warmth, but lightweight, perfect
Was worried about the length, but it fit just fine. Definitely snug, like a baselayer.
I am 6 feet and 185. The XL fits well. Except the sleeves are slightly tight. In practice this has not bothered me. But, I do tug on the sleeves to try and stretch them out a little when I first put them on.
Quality is excellent. Fit runs a bit small -- I ordered 3XL and the fit is snug. I usually order 2XL. Definitely recommend this item.
The base layer is very warm and remains warm even when sweaty.
Enjoyed my first one so much that I needed another. I use this a lot during the fall and spring, so it's helpful to have two on hand. The fit is great and they stay warm when wet. Great short-sleeved base layer.
Fit was very tight, but acceptable for a base layer. Great feel of the fabric and kept my core warm but not hot, perfect. Excellent overall product.
These base layers are part of my regular Fall and winter gear. I have both long and short sleeves. I’ve been known to wear them under street clothes too.
