Chapeau Mesh SL Striped Base layer
Chapeau's new summer base layers are quite simply, very good. They look superb and do what they should do, which is help regulate your body temperature as the mercury rises. Available in short sleeve or sleeveless options, they are also very handy as a top to wear when training indoors.
The main kite mesh pattern fabric is made in Italy and takes on the task of moving moisture away from your skin quickly whilst the soft touch side panels allow for a bit more flexibility of fit. A base layer should of course be quite fitted but the addition of side panels increases the comfort as well as adding to the aesthetics.
On the subject of aesthetics, we love a classic chest stripe at Chapeau! as you may have already noticed! However, we don't recommend doubling up on the chest stripes for maximum style points. Instead, we'd suggest mixing the pared back logo base with the chest stripe jerseys or vice versa. Remember, if you look good, you will feel good. If you feel good, you will enjoy your ride more. We want you to feel good.
