THE JAM IN YOUR LAYER CAKE - LONG SLEEVE THERMAL JERSEYS
Well, we said it was the jam in the middle but it can also be the icing on the top depending on the weather - and that's the point. A good thermal long-sleeve jersey is not just a deep winter garment, it's pretty much an anytime-of-year-apart-from-high-summer garment. Mid layer, top layer or only layer - you need at least N+1 of them in your cycling wardrobe
We have put together a Thermal Jersey guide to help you better understand each of our cycling jerseys.
Tempo II Thermal Jersey
The workhorse of the range, it's no fuss and does what it sets out to do - looks great and keeps you warm at a wallet-friendly price point.
At £79.99 this jersey has three elastic rear pockets and a full hem gripper constructed from dyed yarn fleece-backed thermal fabric with 4-way stretching. Recommended for temperatures 5-15°.
Club Thermal Jersey
A bit fancier than the Tempo with a slightly slimmer cut and a softer and more luxurious Roubaix fabric.
At 119.99 the Club Thermal is constructed of 4-way stretch, Bluesign and Oeko-tex-approved Thermo Roubaix 3.0 Italian fleece-backed fabric. If you catch a rain shower it dries incredibly quickly and stays warm. Equally, if you are putting the effort in its wicks and breathes very well too. The fit is a bit slimmer than the Tempo II and you get a full hem gripper, reflective chest stripe, logo and badge. It has three elasticated rear pockets and a fourth zipped security pocket for valuables with water-resistant lining.
Etape Merino Jersey
Our top-of-the-range merino sports wool jersey is a real treat. A wonderful fabric in a slim cut, classic styling that looks good year after year and 4 rear pockets ensure this will become a go-to piece in your collection. This Jersey is warm, quick-drying, lightweight, breathable and natural. Ideal for Autumn through to the depths of winter, paired with a jacket or worn over a base layer in spring.
At 129.99 this jersey is constructed of Australian extra fine Merino wool mixed with Cationic Dyed Polyester. This enhances durability as well as improves moisture management.
