I owned a Winter Skin Foil and a Summer Skin Foil before buying this one. I live in the Winter Skin Foil from November through March. I really needed something for those transition months in the Pacific Northwest where the temperatures are in the 50s and low 60s. This shirt was perfect. I am finding even during early July I have had to use it. Skin foils are the best base layers I have ever owned. They are pretty indestructible and add a dimension to you kit that nothing else could do. It is a perfect complement to my kit for those transition seasons.
This was a purchase for Father's Day I bought on sale for the kids to give me. I just used it the first time today on our first sportive held since the lockdowns. Weather hottish in the Texas Hill Country (end of June). I paired it with a Craft Nano sleeveless base. Beautiful fit in the cycling position. Beautiful feel - you do not fee as if you are wearing any shirt at all. NO bunching in the drops, NO material flapping at any time, even during a 45mph descent. The air moves right through the jersey. You can feel it leaving the back of the jersey with a cooling effect. Paper thin - you will see your bib straps and base, but I am not looking at it when i am climbing or descending. Indeed, I had several compliments on the jersey (Holy White). Hands down, by a long shot, the best jersey i have ever worn and i have Giordana FR-C, top of the line Castelli, and even other Assos jerseys. I am now spoiled and will not be satisfied with the other jerseys I have and will have to find other excuses to buy me more of these jerseys . . . such as when Western puts them on sale again.
