The lightweight and luxuriously comfortable Chpt3 MSR SL 1.81 Base Layer is perfectly suited to hotter climes. A bold block print design and nuanced composition are ideal if you’re looking forward to long summer rides.
Constructed from microfibre polyester with a hydrophilic outer layer, the MSR SL Base Layer is at home in warmer conditions. Soft to touch and lined around the arms, neck and hem for superior comfort, wearing the MSR SL feels effortless. Dedicated stretch panels at the hem are optimised for a variety of riding positions, giving you the freedom of movement to enjoy sun-soaked rides.
The overprinted design was inspired by seasoned pro-rider David Millar’s experiences cycling the final part of the Milano Sanremo race. The verdant Mediterranean coastal roads towards Sanremo are captured in the vivid tri-tone colour palette of the MSR SL Base Layer. Chpt3 compares the effect of the MSR SL Base Layer’s bold colours to revealing the lining of a bespoke Savile Row suit. Worn with a muted exterior, the MSR SL Base Layer speaks of quiet confidence.

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.
