I know these aren't the most stylish cycling jerseys you have ever seen but they are my favorite summer cycling jerseys. These shirts are made of polyester and feel very light and comfortable. The material breathes and you feel cool and dry as you ride. They are very simply made with seams that do not rub on long hot rides.
The polyester material is not hygroscopic so they don't get heavy and soggy as you ride. They also wash well and dry quickly. These jersey are much better than cotton T-shirts that are hot and soggy in the summer on the East Coast.
I love these jerseys for tours, no pockets in the back to annoy on a recumbent and they pack very small. If I get some grease on one, I just toss the shirt.
When these jerseys are on sale at Campmor, I usually stock up. Luckily, the bright colors perfect for cycling are the ones they usually have on sale.
