The Chpt3 Backyard 1.85 Long Sleeve Base Layer is perfectly crafted for your training rides – born in the heartland of pro-cycling and bred for lasting comfort, this is a performance garment suited to everyday life.
Constructed from midweight polyester microfibres with a hydrophilic outer layer to ensure quick drying, this technical base layer is perfect for long winter training rides and best matched with a Chpt3 Rocka or Jersey Jacket. In utilising panelled hems and a soft to touch feel, the Backyard Base Layer is able to sit effortlessly on your skin, keeping your temperature regulated whilst ensuring lasting comfort on longer rides.
The design of the Backyard Base Layer grew from cycling savant David Millar’s exploration of the areas surrounding Girona in Northern Spain. Nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Girona is the centre of pro-level winter training. The cartographic surface pattern on the Backyard Base Layer mirrors the intricate web of routes and villages across the region.
This is a versatile base layer with aesthetic flair ideally suited to your winter training rides.
- 145g/m polyester microfibre construction

In 2015, the Chpt3 project provided the newly-retired David Millar, and designer Richard Pearce, with the opportunity to work alongside long-time sponsors to create something truly different and exclusive. A collaboration with Castelli launched the brand; a collection of lovingly designed cycling garments that fuse the latest material technology with a sartorial elegance opposed to the billboard stylings of the peloton. The result is the ultimate in both performance cyclewear and coffee-stop chic. Read more about CHPT3.
