The polyester material is comfy next to the skin and wicks sweat well when you start working harder. It dries quickly too without getting stinky, meaning it’ll last a ride or two before needing a wash.
Get too hot and the short zipper at the front helps you dump heat quickly. The three rear pockets are handy for stashing lighter items in if you’re not wearing a pack too, but we’d like to see at least one zipped pocket for stashing a phone, keys or cash.
Although the elasticated waist helps with the tailored, comfortable fit, we found that it would tend to ride up if we didn’t have anything in the rear pockets.
