Dainese Map Windstopper Shirt
Does the job... does the job very well.
I have a riding suit (jacket and pants) and have wondered what makes sense to wear underneath. Well this is one very good answer. The shirt keeps your body heat in and the wind out. That is a good recipe for staying warm. And you do stay warm.
I like the construction of this piece. It is quality and I enjoy the feel of the product. It is a piece that makes you think the manufacturer is serious about what they are doing. It gives you the impression that you could own this for years and years. It just is like that.
It is easy to get too warm with this shirt... it is meant to keep you warm and it will. I am a fan. But if you are in a situation where you are cool in the AM and warm in the PM you cannot wear this all day. Pull over, find a private area and change. Throw this in your luggage/pack/whatever and you will be happy.

first base-layer experience : amazing
Having never ridden with a base-layer garment, i have nothing to compare it to, but this Dianese shirt has increased my enjoyment of my scooter tenfold — seriously. The warmth and stability i feel in this just improves all the feedback from the machine — though in my case it's a 300cc scooter, so you may experience be less 'feedback' — rough roads scooters are clearly inferior — but especially at freeway speeds this is the best — like a wetsuit for a diver i'll probably always want to wear this.

Good thermal insulation
Not for mild climate, easy to use and do not require additional outfit

Warm comfortable and stylish
Every bit of this shirt is thought out, extremely comfortable and warm. Expensive but worth the price

Excellent companion to Dainese Airfast Perforated Jacket
Love my Airfast Jacket, but it moves so much air, that under 65 degrees can be chilly at speed. This had me looking for a way to extend my usage down to 50-55 degrees without buying another jacket.
Only portions of this shirt are windproof, but the portions match up perfectly with the perforations in the jacket. The rest is highly breathable, making it fairly comfortable.
I wouldn't want to be in this combination of summer jacket with a windproof shirt for great lengths of time in weather beneath 55 degrees... but it is perfect for taking off in 50 degrees as the day is starting to warm up and is still comfortable at 65+. It also folds up small and fits in a tank bag as the temps come up.
Sizing was better than i expected from the reviews. I am a 42R in the chest and a 34 in jeans... small beer belly... wear a 54 in the Airfast Jacket.
The Large shirt fits perfect... not too tight or loose.
Basically fits like anything in a large from Banana Republic.

Worth every penny.
I got this to go under my Rev'It Airwave summer jacket to add versatility and be able to layer during Spring/Fall riding in the North East. Quality is great, stopped the wind and insulated as expected. I used it while the temperature was in the mid-50s-70s, and took it off once it hit 70º.
I'm 6'1" and 165lbs, wear a Rev'It M/L depending on style, and ordered the Dianese in a L…fit perfectly. If you think you may be between sizes i'd say order up a size.
As always, Revzilla customer service was excellent and it was shipped super fast.

Great layering piece, keeps me warm!
I got this as a layering piece to my Dainese Speed Naked Leather jacket. It's a perfect match and keeps me well insulated even when I ride in the 40's. The only issue I have with the shirt is that it is pilling where the zipper for the zip in pants rubs against it on the lower back. Other than that, great shirt and I would readily recommend it.
