Drop in with style.

As much as we love a good vintage t-shirt to show off some style on the jumps, cotton isn't exactly protective or wicking, so we find ourselves reaching for POC's Resistance Pro DH Men's Jersey instead. Its durable fabrics whisk moisture out and away so riders stay cool under pressure, while reinforcements across the shoulders and sleeves fend off trailside debris and keep this jersey at the top of the laundry pile in anticipation of the next ride. Whether you're running light with just elbow pads or going all-in with torso and back protection, this jersey's roomy fit accommodates it all without impacting freedom of movement as you rock and roll down your favorite run.

  • Get your gravity on with this classy jersey
  • Double-layer fabric resists abrasion on shoulders and elbows
  • Sleeves reinforced with durable Cordura fabric
  • Mesh under the arms boosts ventilation
  • DWR treatment on lower body repels moisture
  • Roomy fit accommodates elbow pads, and torso and back protection

Doesn't seem like a very useful jersey

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

I ordered size XL, which fits true to size, but the neck hole is too big, which I guess will shed more heat, but then why the long sleeves? At full retail of $180, I don't think there is a single buyer in the world for this jersey. At 50% off, it's still a stretch because it's not clear what temperature range this jersey was designed for. With a smaller neck hole (or even a zippered, raised neck), the jersey would work better for slightly cooler days. On barely warm days, I'm going to wear a 3/4 sleeve jersey and elbow guards, which will provide enough warmth. The jersey material is pretty thin and stretchy, so it certainly won't work for cold days. I think you are looking at wearing this jersey when it's about 68-72 degrees, but when it's on the upper end of that range, I would prefer to wear a 3/4 sleeve jersey.

I wore my elbow guards over the jersey, which makes the patch of tough fabric on the outside of the forearm irrelevant--the patch ends up underneath my 661 Evo elbow guard. At some point, I'll try stretching the jersey over my elbow guards, but I don't really see the point of wearing guards under the jersey. Wind resistance?

As for the color, my jersey is black with dark grey forearm patches.


Update1: For my second ride, I wore my POC DH jersey on a 66 degree, sunny afternoon, and I was fine while doing some hard climbing, but once I turned my bike downhill the saturated jersey felt really cold, so I stopped to put on a windbreaker. Okay, so it's a DH jersey, which I guess means it's not designed for pedaling. This time, I wore my POC DH jersey over my elbow guards, and I guess I looked less like a storm trooper heading out for battle, so there's that. After my first ride, I washed my POC DH jersey, and I noticed that my white sunblock didn't wash out of the inside of the collar--like it does for all my other mtb jerseys.

Update2:
If I put liquid detergent directly on the collar, the sunblock washes out. After my third time washing the jersey, I noticed one of the seams in the neck/chest area had developed a hole, so I sewed the seam back together.

The big neck hole now has a ruffled collar more appropriate for an off the shoulder evening dress, so if you are transitioning in either direction, this may be the jersey for you.

Look good, go fast.

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

Just get it, you know you want it. This thing is sick. Fit is dialed. Fabric is top notch.

Lightweight Protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

poc makes such incredible protective gear and their clothes are no exception. this jersey runs a little small but is surprisingly stretchy. i have an older dh jersey and it had almost no give. to put it on over my pads i had to add a zipper from a seamstress. this one just stretches nicely. i think the more snug fit is intended for less drag and aerodynamics when you are shredding on a downhill race. it is pretty much all black even though the photo makes it seem like it has shades of grey? the fabric feels very light but tough.
