The all-new Chapeau Merino Base Layer is beautifully soft and smooth against the skin. This lightweight performance base layer is a wardrobe staple for all your outdoor activies - in fact, we'd be tempted to use it on it's own, it's that beautiful to wear!


Made with 100% non-mulesed merino wool sourced from Down Under, this layer will be soft and breathable next to your skin. The natural insulating property of merino will keep you cool in warmer weather and warm you up when its cooler.


Known for its odour resistant properties, Chapeau's merino base layer can be worn for days on the slopes and trails without washing. A round neck will keep the warmth in.


Designed to sit against the skin underneath a jersey or jacket. With a snug performance fit you'll barely notice it's there - apart from the sense of warmth and comfort. Perfect for rides from Autumn through to Spring.


  • 100% performance non-mulesed merino

  • Naturally temperature regulating

  • Odour resistant

  • Natural wicking properties

  • Machine washable at 30 degrees on a delicate wash/short cycle

Chapeau! Size Guide

As a UK company, Chapeau's sizing is fairly true to UK body shapes. It is cut for road riding, though, so bear in mind that if you like your cycling kit to be less than figure hugging you should choose a size up.

If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.

        Fitting Advice for Chapeau bibs - To make sure your bibs are right for you, you want them to fit tighter rather than looser. This will help the pad stay in the correct position when pedalling and allow the 'compression' qualities of the fabric to work properly.

        Chapeau suggest you compare these flat measurements to a comparable piece of kit that you know fits you well, and select your size on that basis.

            We admired Chapeau! from afar for years before finally consummating our relationship and finding a loving way to offer our customers their beautiful kit.


            Based in Exeter, they are a truly British team - something that reflects in their designs as well as their attention to technical detail.


            So what kind of folk are they? We think they hit a great balance between a true passion for cycling and a refusal to take it (or themselves) too seriously. They hate cycling stereotypes, love cake, hate cycling snobbery, love inclusivity. They respect cyclists of all types, look after their bikes and kit like their own children, and truly want to share their passion with others.


            In short, they're our kind of people. And the proof couldn't be clearer: 'Chapeau!', in case you weren't aware, is French for 'hat', and is the traditional cycling parlance to pay tribute to a fellow cyclist's efforts.


            We say 'Chapeau!' to them.
