CHPT3 Backyard LS Base Layer 1.85; Mid-weight long sleeve base layer created in Polyester Microfibre with Hydrophilic Outer Layer, at 145g/m it is a heavier weight than our 1.81 Base Layers and is designed to be paired with a 1.62 J/J Jersey Jacket or a 1.64 Rocka Mk2 Jacket for that perfect combination for long training rides.
Like the 1.81 Base Layer, it has panelled hems - for the Backyard Base Layer we've made this construction method more obvious by using a different colour (Outer Space) for the inside panels at the waistline.
The design is inspired by the winter training routes around Girona in Catalunya, Northern Spain, often referred to as "The Pro's Backyard".
With the onset of Autumn and the racing over until the next Spring, the attention turns to training, and after a few weeks off, the Pro’s are quickly back on their bikes embarking on long training rides to build their base km’s ahead of the new campaign.
Nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Girona is the perfect location for those long training rides and the various routes became the inspiration for the surface pattern, an abstract road map of the roads and villages that every pro knows.

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.
