The "LSWBL" is Chpt.///'s rather prosaic name for their Long Sleeve Winter Base Layer. But the LSWBL is anything but dull. After years of relying on base layers not only on the bike but in day-to-day life, David Millar decided to make one that worked equally well in both scenarios.

It uses the latest in fabric technology - merino wool wrapped around a nylon core, making it comfier, stretchier, drier, warmer, stronger and tougher than normal wool. The traditional down-sides of wool - stretching and twisting with age, have been eradicated. And because it's merino there's no itchiness to worry about, and it gives effective insulation without bulkiness.

Available in Climbing Ivy or Fire Red, the LSWBL has styling elements taken from vintage sweatshirts. Too good to only wear on the bike.

David Millar says:

"The Long Sleeve Winter Base Layer is a staple item of every cyclists winter wardrobe. Sometimes we have no choice but to venture out when it's cold or wet, or worse, when it's cold and wet. That's when the LSWBL is dug out from it's summer hibernation.

My experience has proved that when it comes to winter base layers it's hard to beat the benefits of good old-fashioned wool, problem with wool is that although it performs well under normal circumstances it doesn't handle the requirements of high performance quite so well.

For this reason we have used a new technology that involves wrapping a nylon core with merino wool which makes the fabric comfier, stretchier, drier, warmer, stronger and tougher than normal wool. It's surprisingly light for its warmth, and warm for its weight.

The traditional downsides of wool - stretching and twisting with age, have been eradicated. It's designed for cool weather riding and is to be worn directly against the skin where it works as a great wicking first layer.

We've designed it more like a classic sweatshirt (a staple of every wardrobe) than a tech piece. This is because during my racing years I would often wear my LSWBL's off the bike, for this reason we added design details to the Chpt./// LSWBL that enable it to be worn off the bike as well as on it. The cut is close-to-body but not skin tight, after all, it's too good to be used just for cycling."

CHPT3 SIZE GUIDE:

CHPT3 clothing uses a tailoring system for its sizes. They use the physical chest or waist size as the garment size, i.e. if you have a 40" chest you need a 40" Jersey.

Please note while the CHPT3 range is not specifically designed for racing it is still a close fitting athletic design suitable for active cyclists.
