Built for speed.
Much more than just a darn good looking jersey, the Nalini Women's Carpina Short-Sleeve Jersey brings you cool, dry comfort and tons of mobility for demanding adventures on the bike. Its stretchy Hot Moa fabric provides you with an exceptionally lightweight and breathable feel that's designed to keep you cool and dry through some of summer's hottest days, while also maintaining generous stretch to let you move freely, from start to finish. Then, a Moa Mantodry treatment gets to work immediately by wicking sweat away from your skin instead of letting it saturate the entire jersey. Sun protection comes to you with a rating of UPF 50+ for added defense against harmful rays, and the silicone anti-slip grip waistband ensures you don't have to deal with it riding up on you.

I like this jersey. This is a nice form fitting race fit jersey with longer race day sleeves. The fit feels right and the fabric does too. This jersey is about the same length in front as in back. It has a very wide elastic waist band. I was worried the band would make the jersey bunch up and creep up on me, but the jersey stays in place on me. I haven't ridden it at night, so I can't comment on its reflective features. For the cost it misses a key detail of a tab at the top of the zipper that protects your neck from the metal. Other little things make this a B and not an A grade for me. It's snug enough that the half zip will suck when you're grungy and tired and just want to get the dang thing off. The pockets are super small and are positioned very high on your back. Overall I do like it but want to give a detailed summary of what I observed about it.
