Product Review: Pearl Izumi Stratum Sleeveless Top (Base Layer)

Base layers are a must for some bike riders.

Base layers are a must for some riders.   Others just go without.   I had the pleasure of testing the Stratum Sleeveless top by Pearl Izumi in the spring when an extra layer is always welcome.  With the weather still being unpredictable in spring, base layers are an easy way to add extra temperature control to your ride.

 

The Stratum top is form fitting with flat locked seams that is highly comfortable when used in conjunction with another layer or just by itself indoors.   When temperature control is needed the most, the Stratum top delivers.    On top of temperature control the Stratum also transfers moisture very well.   The material of the Stratum dries very quickly after hard rides and keeps sweat away from your core while on the bike.   No matter if I put on the top wet or dry it always felt dry on the inside.

 

As mentioned earlier the Pearl Izumi Stratum top can be used indoors as well as outdoors.   Whether you are riding on a trainer, rollers, or at a spin class with your friends, the Stratum top provides a comfortable ride despite the sweat and moisture that?s part of hard riding.   Besides cycling the Stratum top can be used in any outdoor activity including hiking, running, skiing, etc. - making it a very universal piece of clothing to have in the arsenal of active clothing.

 

At $35 the Stratum Sleeveless Top is a great buy for any highly active individual that needs technical gear that really performs.
