Rated 5 out of 5 by guyd44 Effective, warm and light
I bought this as an extra layer as the days got colder. It is brilliantly effective at keeping you warm (lots of thin layers are good) but also wicking away any sweat. I never feel uncomfortably wet even when riding hard.

Вещь меня удивила. Работает классно! Вполне может заменить ветровку при не очень низких, осенних температурах. Берите и не сомневайтесь. Как базовый слой, она прекрасна!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Quality you'd expect from Endura
Over 90% of my cycling clothing is made by Endura - and for good reason. It's functional, hard-wearing and reasonably priced and this Transmission Base Layer is no exception. Previous to this, Endura's Frontline base layer provided me with years of faithful service but recently came to the end of its useful life. True, if you so much as looked at the Frontline it smelled like a damp dog draped over a corpse and but the new Transmission doesn't seem to be plagued with the same issue. Moisture wicking is excellent and it draws sweat from the upper body keeping you dry throughout the ride without the eye-watering stench. The fit is snug but not restrictive and generally keeps your body at a comfortable temperature and is very much shaped with the cyclist in mind having a long back and panelled construction. However, beware the arm sizing. I own the XL size and even with this generous size the arms are tight. Not restrictive or uncomfortable but seem small in comparison to the rest of the garment. Not such an issue for me as I've got arms like two pieces of knotted string, but for those of you with huge 'guns' I'd definately try before you buy. Finally, if it had a zip at the neck I'd have given at 5 stars as they're great for regulating heat but for this price I'm happy to have it as it is. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous good mild weather base layer
Just been out for my first ride wearing this base layer. The fit is good apart from maybe the arms being a little bit tight but you get used to it. It kept me dry and at a cool temperature throughout the ride. I was wearing this and an ultralight windproof shell for the first half of the ride and never got too hot or sweaty on the uphills. We stopped for a drink outside of a cafe and i started to get cold so i put on a jersey as well. After we set off again, the heavens opened and there was sleet/rain/thunder/lightning. At this point with 3 layers on i felt like the base layer didn't really do much to keep me warm but i was dry and reasonably comfortable. I guess if you live anywhere colder than cornwall in the uk you might want to look at a base layer that adds a bit more warmth but i'm pretty happy with it as its generally pretty mild here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous warm and snug
very snug fit which is great for a base layer. It is quite tight on the arms especially at the elbows. I consider myself to have quite skinny arms so might be too tight if you are a weight lifter! Its light and thin so is ideal for putting in a bag incase the temperature drops whilst you are out. wicks sweat away well. As it is a base layer you will need something to go on top as it will do nothing to stop the cold wind. You may want another thicker layer if you are going out in temperatures below 5C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Does exactly as advertised, definitely helps to reduce heat loss whilst at the same time not being to thick as to block airflow and sweat evaporation. Great product

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Have used it for skiing and running during winter (and i live in Moscow, Russia!). Warm and comfy, looks nice...but too snug in the arms. Got accustomed to it in a few weeks though))) Recommended!
