OUTWET Wicking Base Layer

When winter arrives, sweat becomes a serious issue which can rapidly chill the body.

In the past, my approach has been to utilize a tight-fitting summer jersey with appropriate material (the cloth of many summer-weight jerseys soaks up too much moisture). Then I add a long-sleeve jersey over that base layer, followed by as much additional warmth as demanded by the weather and/or a vest. This has worked fairly well with the right base layer.

This year, I tried a new product— OUTWET.

OUTWET is made in Italy for cyclists. It’s very tight fitting, but comfortable, and it works better than anything I’ve tried before, keeping me relatively dry. With heavy perspiration the base layer still feels damp, but it’s much better than most summer style jerseys.

However, I’m somewhat ambivalent on whether it is actually better than using a wool cycling jersey like the Ibex Giro full zip wool jersey, because in cold conditions the wool has an insulating value, even if it does soak up more moisture.
