Louis Garneau SF-2 LS PLASTRON
Review: Louis Garneau SF-2 LS PLASTRONBy Scott Hackett | Published Jan 1, 2012
- Soft Comfortable feel of the Supra Filo 2 fabric
- Great Moisture Wicking
- Wind barrier front and leading edge of the long sleeves
The Louis Garneau SF-2 Long Sleeve Plastron is a great choice for a cold weather base layer. I have worn this base layer in temperatures down to 30 degrees in combination with my favorite long sleeve jersey the ECS reviewed last year here on CXBR, without a jacket though my face may have been cold my upper body felt very comfortable. With a jacket like the Massimo 2 adding the SF-2 Long Sleeve Plastron I was comfortable even when the tempature dip below zero degrees. While wearing the Louis Garneau SF-2 Long Sleeve Plastron you will notice the Supra Filo 2 fabric feels very soft and comfortable against your skin and it wicks moisture extremely well keeping you warm and dry. What separates the SF-2 LS Plastron from other cold weather base layers is the Light WindDry 2 fabric that is over the front and leading edge of the sleeves. The fabric made of a micro-perforated polyurethane membrane, which allows wicking of moisture while its waterproof and windproof properties protect against the elements. I have also worn the SF-2 Plastron LS and SF-2 Plastron for snowshoeing, running, snowboarding and has never let me down making already enjoyable activities that much more fun when the weather turns cold and or windy.
We Didn't Like
I can honestly say not a thing.
The Final Say
The Louis Garneau SF-2 LS Plastron is a great way stretch your winter cycling wardrobe functionality with one well designed item, is a great value. With the SF-2 LS Plastron on you stay more comfortable because your warm dry and protected from the wind. The combination of super soft feel of the Supra Filo 2 fabric for the body and sleeves with a layer of the ultra wind and waterproof Windry 2 fabric on the front and leading edge of the sleeves are perfect not just for cycling but for any cold weather activity you choose. Just like all Louis Garneau clothing the design, fit, construction especially the flat lock stitching and attention to detail is first rate. This winter and spring I will for sure be wearing the Louis Garneau SF-2 LS Plastron or SF-2 Plastron as my choice of base layer no matter my choice of my outdoor activities.
