Rapha Winter Jersey - i has one.

my fiancee bought me a Rapha Winter jersey.

construction and fabric are great.
it was super warm this AM; i wore it with a long sleeve underarmor baselayer in 38 degree weather and might have been a tad too warm...until i stopped for 5 minutes and the sweat turned cold.

it's worth noting that these are very form fitting, especially around the waist/hips.
i'm 6'1'', 170lbs and a large fits me perfectly everywhere except for the hips, where it just barely gets around my "apparently huge" pelvis.

May I ask the OP, do you find your UnderArmour gets wet when you ride?
I've just started using UA in 40F temps, and it's great - but after a 2-hour
ride it's soaked wet, and if I ever have to stop for a flat I think I'll be quite cold.

I'd like to know if I'm doing it wrong. Thanks!

Same here. Great for the start of the ride but too much once you start sweating.
And when its wet it starts to get super cold.

So, i have to experiment a bit without it.

There is an easy answer about underarmour in the cold.

Don't wear it.

Get a lightweight Merino wool undershirt and wear that.

Problem solved.

Agreed. If you're paying that much for a cycling jacket, it better have central heating.
