I wear this in Seattle weather, so do take that into account. I usually wear the magic jacket over the top and this wildly soaks up sweat. If you wear it without a layer on top, it’s a little bit better. Excited to try it out in the summer weather to see if it feels different, but it’s definitely a short ride long sleeve for me.
Nice material and quality. Color is a muted burnt orange color and pairs really well with black but has a little extra visibility. I am 6’ and 170lbs. Purchased a large and can fit a thin base later under it without any extra fabric bunching up. I believe I would have fit into a medium and it would have been more race cut but wanted some movement for this jersey. Girlfriend says I look handsome in it :)
This is essential a heavyweight thermal undergarment for colder weather riding. I have worn it three times with a short- sleeve jersey over top in the lower 40s to mid 50s. It provides some (not a lot) wind break, but certainly very breathable. I LOVE: 1. the weights and fabric - soft. clings nicely. 2. Zipper is excellent, even little tuck at bottom of zipper - quality touch. 3. The bottom has an excellent silicon/rubbery circumference and holds very well to my bibs so it doesn't hike up or move around when I do even over a several hour ride. 4. The color is unique, rich, awesome! Hook 'Em Horns! 5. It is a slightly cropped fit, which is perfect for me since I am a little short wasted. It does not stick out under a jersey or jacket on the bottom. A very neat look! The sizing chart is excellent. I am 5' 10" and about 205lbs. I ordered the XL to be a "roomier" fit. Wise choice. It is clingy and stretchy so really you cant go wrong ordering up a size unless you had narrow shoulders. Also, no matter the quality, and this is a very high quality piece, all jerseys will shrink a tad after a hundred washes, so that gives you some upside. (just as an aside, I also got the micro climate yellow jacket. I ordered XXL - another wise choice. I can wear some thicker layers under it, as well as just a short sleeve jersey.)
Fantastic fit and incredibly versatile. I’ve worn this is weather as warm as the low 60s and as cool as the mid 40s with base layer and gilet and was super comfortable in both scenarios. Well done Ornot! Will be purchasing another one!
