Santini Active Air Long Sleeve Men's Jersey $190.00
On the best of days, cycling outerwear is designed to keep warmth in by helping excess sweat and moisture evaporate through a porous shell. And taking this principle one step further, Santini drew inspiration from the airflow demands of sports cars. As a result, its Active Air Long Sleeve Jersey was designed to increase airflow to the body, keeping warm, dry, and comfortable.
Constructed from the stretchable Thermo Fleece DB050 fabric, the Air Active jersey features a lightweight composition that's perfect for both fall and spring temperatures. This shell features a thermofleece lining that wicks moisture away from your skin, transporting it towards the surface for rapid evaporation. And knowing that remaining dry is key to warmth, Santini enhanced the breathability of the Active Air jersey. Additionally, Santini included a series of overlapping elastic fabric bands that cover breathable mesh at the rear back upper-flanks of the jacket. Unlike one-dimensional panels of mesh that air rushes right over, these flaps function in a similar manner to intakes on sports cars that move air into the engine. Another analogy is to the gills of a fish. And because they're designed to work in conjunction with body movement, you'll feel enhanced airflow no matter how hard you're riding.
The jacket features raglan sleeves for increased shoulder flexibility, while also possessing articulated arms for comfort while in riding position. Knit cuffs fit cleanly under gloves, and the back tail has been elongated to keep you covered from wheel-spray. And to keep the fit in place, the hem features a silicone gripper pattern. The Active Air was finished with a full-length zipper, and three generous rear pockets to hold all of your riding essentials.
The Santini Active Air Long Sleeve Jersey is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Red, Turquoise, and Black.
- How to Measure:
- For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
- Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
- Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
- Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.

Size chart for this Jersey is wrong!
I am returning this jersey because the size that Santini published is not accurate. you need to order one or two sizes over to ensure a comfortable fit. The quality also leaves a lot to be desired. Very disappointed.
AWESOME cool weather jersey for 50-65*
This is the real deal. High-quality cycling clothing designed and manufactured in Italy (since 1965) by Pietro Santini.
By the way, Santini gear (and Di Marchi) is always made in Italy. Castelli (except socks) is usually made in Asia.
Anyway, the quality and design of this Santini jersey is very impressive. An "active air" vent runs the length of the back (down the middle vertically). Quality fabrics. Beautiful attention to detail. Made in Italy. You just don't find this level of quality in most cycle clothing designed in Italy and made in Asia. The sewing here is flawless.
FIT: Size-up one or even two sizes depending on your BMI - per usual with Italian cycle clothing. I'm 5'10" and 190lbs. The XXL was perfect for me -especially so I could put a thicker L-S base layer underneath for the colder days.
