MILLE GT Summer LS Jersey
A long-sleeve summer jersey might seem like an oxymoron, but that might depend on where you ride and what the conditions are like. If your local climate has ever-changing weather conditions and you're looking for a high performance, moisture-wicking, and breathable jersey with a little more coverage, the MILLE GT Summer LS Jersey certainly fits the bill. It offers additional protection (UPF35) against the sun's rays and can provide a little extra warmth on those cooler starts while using the same quick-drying and breathable Stripe fabric that's used on the short-sleeve version of this jersey.
We certainly see this as more of an early or late summer piece, and maybe even for spring or fall with a base layer, depending on where you live. It's remarkable just how well this jersey wicks, dries, and breathes when the pace picks up or the temps rise. The innovative Type.157 Stripe Tex fabric consisting of a circular knit is what's at work here and lets it get away with being a long-sleeve that we're tempted to wear when otherwise a short-sleeve would be a no-brainer. And at any point, if the buildup of heat is just too much, a slim-full-length zip lets you quickly dump heat and zip it back up, adjusting easily to the conditions. The jersey features the Mille Regular Fit cut with raglan sleeves making it more relaxed than its all-out Racing Fit jerseys so it's highly suited for training rides where comfort trumps aerodynamics.
We've really grown to love the Triple Ramp concept rear pockets, which positions them perfectly for ease of access and preventing the dreaded droopy rear jersey. This concept places the seams internally making the pockets barely noticeable and when you fill them with ride snacks and tubes, the top of the pocket forms a lip keeping items in over rough roads.
