Get rid of the winter thermals in favor of something more breathable to deal with the changing weather in spring. Here are some of the best base layers for the season.


Splash out on a MAAP seamless base layer tee and you will get a high-performance garment that will last for years. It’s a tight fit, but a stretchy piece that helps to regulate body temperature.


Another high-end option is the Rapha merino mesh base layer. It’s more expensive than most, but the short-sleeved merino wool offering is versatile to serve you through three seasons.


The Gore Bike Wear Base Layer is a good option for cooler spring days thanks to its long sleeves, and the Pearl Izumi Transfer base layer is better suited to spring and fall seasons.


When things get warmer, try the Lusso Dryline base layer. It’s supposedly even lighter than merino wool and received amazing reviews from many satisfied customers.


Another superlight option is the Castelli Pro Issue short sleeve, made from a 3-D mesh fabric that promises to keep you cool and dry. Be aware it’s almost see-through so you won’t want to wear it on its own in polite company.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices.
