Things I Like: DeFeet UnD Shurt Base Layer

I am not what you would call a fair-weather rider.  Whether it’s below freezing or when the mercury hits the triple digits, I love riding my bicycle.  And whatever the weather, DeFeet’s UnD Shurt base layer has been my go-to gear for remaining dry and comfortable.

Weighing only a few ounces, the UnD Shurt takes up very little room under form-fitting jerseys or other clothing.  The athletic cut is slim, but-comfortable, and there’s no annoying bunching or “riding up.”  And despite being whispery-thin, it’s not fragile, nor does it require special care.  One of my tank-style base layers has seen near-daily use for over a year, and is still going strong.

DeFeet recommends the UnD Shurt for 40° to 80° weather, and I’d say that their ratings are a little conservative.  While it may not offer as much warmth as the company’s UnD Wool model, it does an excellent job of keeping you dry when you’re layered-up for winter conditions (which there are no shortage of here in Colorado).  As someone who tends to sweat profusely, I’ve found that the UnD Shurt is ideal for staying dry and comfortable.
