I'm looking forward to putting it through its paces when the sun finally comes out as I think the Hackney GT Bang base layer is a real winner.

When I received the Hackney GT Bang Unisex base layer I was struck by the feel and lightness of the garment. Base layers can be a tricky thing, use one that's too thick in the wrong conditions and you'll suffer, the same if you use one that is on the thin side in the cold and you may struggle. 


Given we are now in summer the Hackney GT Bang base layer has proved to be a real boon. The Aviatar polyester is perforated giving it a 'tea bag' like appearance but don't be deceived. The wicking is great, I've used it with thin jerseys or thicker jackets, either way it performs well keeping you comfortable.

With some of the rides proving to be less than seasonal the Bang baselayer has retained the heat making the ride bearable but when the mercury has climbed, with the right top layer, the Bang has come up trumps. The perforated material helps regulate your temperature well so you don't feel overly hot or sweaty, a bonus on the odd day when the sun has come out. 


The side panels are made from lycra which help with the comfort and fit. The styling is pretty cool, unique to Hackney GT to give style as well as substance. It's almost a shame it is hidden under your top layer!

I'm looking forward to putting it through its paces when the sun finally comes out as I think the Hackney GT Bang base layer is a real winner.
