How to choose the right short sleeve base layer. Short sleeve base layers perform best between 18 and 10 °C (65 to 50 F) when worn under a typical long sleeve, thermal cycling jersey. A further outer layer like a windproof cycling jacket can furtherly extend the limit to approximately 5° C (or about 40 F). Obviously, this depend on the jacket. In doubt it’s always better to go for a not too heavy one in order not to compromise freedom of movement and avoid overheating.

A short sleeve base layer under a technical cycling jersey is highly recommended over 20° C (approx. 68-70 F) and until about 32-32 °C (approximately 90 F).
