Ready to rip.
The Troy Lee Designs Women's Ruckus 3/4-Sleeve Jersey ticks all the right boxes if you're the type of rider that hits everything from smooth singletrack to wicked-fast descents, and even the occasional park lap or two. In fact, you'll find this iconic jersey being ridden everywhere from the dense forests of Michigan's Upper Peninsula to the rocky outcroppings of Utah's canyon country.
The 3/4-sleeve silhouette gives you a bit more leeway to wear this top into northern forests and high-altitude environments where chilly breezes are common. It's also a great choice for pairing with elbow pads, as the longer sleeves and relaxed fit provide ample coverage without inhibiting key movements. As for the jersey itself, quick-dry polyester pulls sweat off your body, so you'll stay cool and dry throughout a variety of trail environments and outside temperatures.

- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Small
The elbows and waist are kind of tight. I may return it, can't decide. The pattern and color are pretty cute though.
I bought this as a gift. The quality and material seem nice, but the sizing seemed off. Runs small.
i personally really like this shirt. its pretty darn appealing to the eyes and fits excellently, feminine shape. I dont wear a hydration pack so i like the storage pocket in the back. sometimes i dont want to stuff my keys or a spare tool in my shorts pocket, so i will zip a few small items in the back pocket. works great for me. its pretty silky and sure it can snag, but i also only wearing it mountain biking so i dont care. has held up well so far with a few minor crashes. i alternate between this and a fox long sleeve. i will wear them until they fall apart and get more-i would buy this again. wicks sweat well enough and i dont feel super stinky after a longer ride. i feel like i could wear this shirt to the bar after, if needed, without feeling like i just rode off the trail.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is almost perfect in my eyes. It looks great, material feels amazing, warm enough for fall riding, BUT I feel like the back doesn't breathe quite like I'd like it to. There are two large pockets on the back that are used for side access to store Gu, snacks, and other things, but it's almost a roadie style. For mountain biking, I cannot put anything in those pockets since I wear a hydration pack, so I honestly do not see the point. These pockets just add extra material in a spot on my back where I sweat the most. Other than that, this jersey is pretty wonderful!

I want to love this shirt the color and design are great. I didn't love the silky texture of the outer shirt, it felt like after a few uses it would have snags all over it.
