Size Guide



The Chapeau! Mesh Base Layer is soft on your skin, snug fit and stylish. It will whisk moisture away when you’re working hard all whilst staying fresh and keeping your temperature just right.

It's designed to be a ‘can’t live without it’ favourite that’s as home on the turbo in the shed of dread as it is on your summer holidays, racing to the final cafe stop of the day.

Available with or without sleeves, the Italian kite mesh fabric wicks moisture away from your skin, feels soft and comfy and looks as good in Watopia as it does peaking through your jersey on your local club run.

We've created options for co-ordination and earning style points - PBs are multiplied when the base layer options look as sharp as these.

great base layer for the summer

First time wearing a base layer in the summer, and was initially worried that I would overheat. However, it's worked brilliantly, and has kept me very comfortable even on the hottest, sunniest rides. Great fit, and very comfortable, will definitely be buying another.

Ride Staple

I live in an environment that is hot an humid most of the time. I've now purchased four of these base layers and wear them on virtually every ride, except for the rare days it gets cool.

Yesterday I did a 100+ mile ride through conditions ranging from 95 degrees Fahrenheit to raging downpours where the temp dropped by 30 degrees. At times my jersey was unzipped and at other times fully closed to the neck. This base layer works well all along that range of conditions keeping you comfortable.

While mine show no sign of wear after more than a year, whenever that does begin to occur, they will be replaced immediately. It's a layer I never want to ride without.

good product

not as see through as the pictures would have you believe - great for either sitting on the turbo , or under a jersey on the road

Good bit of kit

The sleevelessness of this garment was ideal for an Easter trip to Mallorca. Light but sturdy and well made. Packs small and doesn't smell as bad as base layers with sleeves.

Fitting advice: A base layer should we worn as a fitted garment so it is in contact with as much of your skin as possible. Only then can it work as effectively as possible to move moisture away from your skin. 

We advise you to compare these flat measurements to a comparable garment (do not compare a jacket to a base layer for example) that you already own and like the fit of to help you work out which size to order from us. However, please remember this is a guide only - 2 garments with same flat dimensions but made of fabrics of different stretch will fit you very differently. If you'd rather buy 2 sizes and send the one back that doesn't fit, this is fine by us!
