This is the exact jersey I have been searching for! Warm but not too heavy, breathable and perfect for taking away the biting chill on cold morning rides. I would recommend sizing up from the house jersey size that works for you (I wear Large for a nice snug fit). I am not a "skinny" cyclist and the XL in the thermal jersey is perfect.
This is my second one of these, and Ornot has improved the fit and function. The previous version had extremely long sleeves, to the point where it would bunch up quite a bit at the wrists. The sleeves are a better length on this version. Also the fit is a bit more fitted, as compared to the older version. The previous version wasn't loose, but this one is definitely more snug for a more streamlined look. Lastly, the zipper is a bit easier to use, the previous version had a zipper with smaller teeth that was a bit more "sticky", this one uses larger teeth and is easier to zip/unzip with one hand. The one change I'm not totally sold on is it seems the pockets are a bit smaller (size of opening). I haven't measured it, but it just feels a bit more difficult to put in and retrieve things from the pockets. Not impossible, and generally I prefer items in the pocket to be secure, rather than moving around, but they do seem a bit narrow. Performance is great, same as the previous version, keeps you warm but not overheated if the temps rise. Love the feel of this jersey!
Awesome jersey. Pairs nicely with vest/jacket or by itself. Grabbing an extra as a backup because this is definitely a staple for fall/winter/spring riding. My go to is sleeveless merino base layer + this jersey + stashed vest or microclimate jacket. Can ride through massive temperature changes with minimal bulk.
Very well made and perfect for the winter layering.
