The Chpt3 1.82 Long Sleeve Winter Base Layer is astonishing warm, lightweight and long lasting – a technical reimagining of the merino wool base layer perfectly suited to cafés and mountain tops alike.
The NuYarn fabric technology utilised in the Winter Base Layer is comprised of a nylon core wrapped with merino wool. This composition has been explicitly chosen because it not only improves upon the natural properties of woollen garments but eradicates inevitable wear that comes with traditional wool. The Winter Base Layer is demonstrably warmer, comfier, lighter, tougher and longer lasting than traditional woollen base layers. It even dries five times faster than its competitors.
Perfectly suited to cool weather conditions and designed to be worn directly against the skin, the Winter Base Layer is favoured by alpinists as well as enumerable pro-cyclists for its technical benefits.
What makes the Winter Base Layer even more remarkable is that it masquerades as a piece of casual wear – with an understated, classic sweatshirt look that fits a little more loosely than skin tight cycling base layers, the Winter Base Layer is perfectly suited to café stops or even paired with jeans. It retains its shape after washing and is constructed to last.
If you’re looking to invest in a top-tier base layer that will keep you warm both on and off the bike for years to come, then look no further.

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.
