Set a fast pace.

You've been meaning to try out a newly built trail all summer, and you finally have a few spare hours this weekend before an evening gathering that you can't miss. Cover ground quickly in the Dakine Charger Jersey, and you'll make it up over the climb and onto a fast, smooth descent with just enough time to shower when you get home. The Charger's slim fit and breathable polyester fibers will keep sweat moving away from your skin as you pop over rollers and dive into banked corners, ensuring you stay dry and don't get bogged down by excess fabric.

Really happy, especially with sale price

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Really cool print, nice fabric which seems to breathe and wick well. It is TRIM, as others have said. I'm 6'3" 230 and can get away with an XL, but just barely, I plan on losing some weight so extra motivation. Regarding the fit, I do not feel restricted in the least from the fit, so that's always more important to me than the look.

Cut, and Looking Good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just like Thomas (the guy that did the review underneath mine) said, this jersey is definitely more cut than you are used to in a mountain bike jersey. However, I really don't mind that. Its cut has never been an issue as far as movement goes and, personally, I think it looks really good. I'm tall and thin, so this thin cut and long jersey is perfect for me. The print and colors on the jersey are nice and bright, and everything is really comfortable. The polygiene in this jersey keeps things smelling fresh (or at least not like death) and the interior goggle wipe is nice for the sunnies after you sweat on them. Overall, I would 100% recommend! If you are tall and thin, this is perfect.

A road jersey?

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This jersey is cut pretty tight. I have other Dakine jerseys in size L that fit fine, but this one was too "aero" for me. Lengths are good, just slim fit I guess.

Sweet trail tee.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm not one to wear traditional jerseys while trail riding, so Dakine apparel has traditionally been by go-to brand for purchasing new apparel for riding. This Charger Jersey feels more like a tech tee, so it's extremely comfortable and doesn't restrict your movement like a more tailored jersey used by XC weight weenies and roadies. The tropical themed print is awesome for differentiating yourself without going full enduro in bright neon. Also, there's some nice mesh along the sides, so you'll stay cool when it heats up in summertime.

Please note, I normally wear a size medium, but was able to size down to a small, seeing Dakine Jerseys typically run a bit more relaxed and baggy. I'm approximately 5'8 and 150 lbs for reference.

Great Fit

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite jerseys. It breathes well, and the fit is trim without being tight like an XC jersey. I like the sewn-in wipe for your sunglasses as well. All in all this is another great jersey from Dakine.
