Essential Road Light Jersey

When the mercury climbs up near triple digits, dressing for the occasion can be tricky. POC's Essential Road Light Jersey is here to make that decision a little more simple, with total breathability and featherweight feel. It's crafted for the warm days, with breathable polyester that's built for ventilation, and has a knack for wicking sweat away from the body to help with temperature regulation. In case the lightweight core isn't enough, POC adds in mesh underarm panels and a full-length front zip that take ventilation to the next level, helping you drop degrees when you're working your way up climbs on the side of an exposed hillside. To keep your essentials at hand, the jersey is equipped with three deep back pockets with room for a spare tube, multi-tool, and nutrition of your choice, and a separate zippered pocket for keeping valuable gadgets secure.

  • A feathery jersey for keeping cool on scorching days
  • Lightweight breathable fabric fights the heat
  • Mesh underarms and full-length zip boost ventilation
  • Quick-drying fabric actively wicks away perspiration
  • Deep cargo pockets provide ample storage for essentials
  • Separate zippered pocket secures phone and valuables

Great, light jersey

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Great jersey for the summer rides. Very light. My chest is a 37 and it fits very well. Phone pocket zipper is a bit sticky though

Nice Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

Nice and lightweight. I'm a big fan of POC, and this is another sweet jersey of theirs. The only con I have is that the lightweight material it's made from is stretchy, and the weight of what you stow in your jersey pockets can cause the jersey to sag down towards your rear and move around a bit when you are out of the saddle.

Great piece of kit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

First impressions are that it's a solid jersey and breathable enough for hot Tucson summer rides. I'm 5' 10", 200lbs and the large fits as expected - tight. I wear full bibs so length isn't an issue.

My only observation is that the sleeves are made for thinner riders so fitting them over my upper arms is a bit of a task, but once I get the jersey all the way on they're great.

Zipper lets down a nice jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

As others have mentioned, the material is really nice for hot weather. It breathes well and is very light. The arm and waist grippers work well.

My issue with this jersey is the zipper. The engagement is weak and it tends to mis-engage if you're not very careful. It makes it almost impossible for me to re-zip on the go. Worse, the zipper pulls the jersey into humps on the front which flap and are lumpy. This makes an otherwise nice jersey a very awkward fit for me. I'm on the muscular side for a cyclist and have a relatively broad chest which might impact the fit but it's not overly tight, the zipper just causes bunching. If it had a chunkier zipper like Castelli I suspect it would lay flat and be a much better jersey.

In the end I'll still wear it when it's very hot out and be OK, I just expected better of a POC product.

Quality Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

This light, breathable jersey is one of the nicest pieces of kit I own. The quality of fabrics and attention to detail is hard to ignore when you have this jersey in your hands. I'd highly recommend it for the summer months. Pair well with the Essential bib shorts. I'm very skinny and went with a size small which works well.

Great Visibility and Lightweight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Much like the name this jersey is a respectably light weight jersey and that ventilates very well on the hot summer days. This jersey is a little more relaxed fit so if you are into a little easier easy fitting road kit you will start here.

Light and breathable

Such a great jersey. Super breathable and light. Great for those hot days. Pockets are supportive for anything you carry on the ride. Great quality jersey.
