Louis Garneau Lite Skin Tank Top - Women's $49.95
Not everyone is striving to be a professional racer. Some folks just like to be on a bike. Similarly, not everyone wants to slide into skin-tight race apparel every time they take their bike for a nice cruise around the city. Louis Garneau designed the Women's Lite Skin Tank Top for people like you. The Lite Skin Tank maintains the quick-drying and moisture managing properties of its race-bred siblings, but without the painted-on fit and the go-fast, flashy graphics.
The Lite Skin is made up entirely of Lite Skin Sens fabric, which looks and feels like cotton, but maintains the moisture-wicking and breathability properties of polyester. Lite Skin Sens boasts an impressive UPF rating of 50 to protect you from the sun's harmful UV rays. It's also stretchy, so you won't feel that unpleasant binding sensation that you get when you reach a non-stretch fabric's limit.
In terms of fit, Garneau designed the Lite Skin with what it calls an 'urban' fit, which means loose and relaxed for the recreational rider. The Lite Skin has no built-in bra. Two angled rear pockets take care of your storage needs, and a media pocket with a headphone cord port allows you to run your headphone wire inside the jersey to eliminate snags. Garneau finished off the Lite Skin with reflective elements that make you more visible to traffic when you're caught out on your bike after dusk.
The Louis Garneau Women's Lite Skin Tank top is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Atomic Blue, Toucan Green, and Black.

Nice light summer jersey.
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Wore this for the first time on Thursday climbing the Alpine Loop (UT) and it worked great. Very light and comfortable. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it had 3 pockets in the back instead of 2. I got it on sale for $39. Paired it with the Neo Power Fit 7 inch shorts.
