Fit for flowing singletrack.
There's nothing like slaloming along twisty bends of smooth-buffed singletrack. Unlike the idyllic alpine scenery you're pedaling along, dramatic changes in elevation and rapid temperature swings evoke anything but bliss on spirited trail rides. Fortunately, the Gore Bike Wear Women's Power Trail Long Sleeve Jersey offers the best of extra coverage and lightweight, quick-drying fabric for enhanced temperature regulation. This combination of longer sleeves and thinner fabric means you'll stay pleasantly insulated from crisp mountain air, all without stifling you upon return to the valley.
Polyester-blended fabric actively wicks perspiration off your skin for evaporative cooling, with added nylon for extra durability and a touch of elastane for uncompromising stretch. The Power Trail's more relaxed Comfort fit ensures full range of motion for pedaling up and ripping down your favorite stretch of trail. Broadened cuffs easily slide over your riding gloves without bunching or restricting movement. The fabric's mélange appearance makes it relevant off bike as well. For convenient storage of trail snacks and small accessories, the jersey has a concealed-zip rear pocket. Plus, there's a reflective rear logo for extra visibility on those late-evening rides back to the trailhead.
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've only been wearing it for a few weeks and washed it a few times (always hang dry but machine wash) and already the thread is coming out/looking raggedy on one of the sleeves. It's a nice loose fit and looks nice but too expensive for how cheaply constructed it is. Also the pocket is way too small to put anything in except maybe a few coins. Neither my keys nor work ID card fit inside
Wider than expected
I wanted a more tailored fit - this was wide. I sent it back.
