When you combine a few features of a jacket and a thermal jersey, then throw in a hearty dose of modern Euro style, the result is something resembling the Maloja Men's Long-Sleeve Boardmann Jersey. Full of the unapologetic energy we've come to expect from the Maloja, the Boardmann eagerly awaits chilly fall mornings that never quite warm up.
Named after an idyllic Swiss village in Switzerland, Maloja has its heart in the mountains, even if your rides can't always take place in them. On the Boardmann, Lycra Sanded fabric takes responsibility for providing adaptability; made with a blend of elastane and nylon fibers, the fabric gives the Boardmann a slim, tailored fit that's able to accommodate a low-profile baselayer underneath it, but not much else. According to Maloja, the Boardmann falls into its Basic insulation category, which refers more to its ideal temperature range than its quality. Cool mornings and chilly afternoons devoid of any serious wind or precipitation are the ideal times for the Boardmann. Its soft brushed interior works to hold a lofted layer of warm air — your own body heat — next to your skin as you ride to keep your muscles insulated in the cold, while continuously pulling sweat away from your skin to evaporate at the surface.
Features like a full-length zipper aid in temperature control, while a silicone waistband holds the jersey in place to prevent chilly gaps. A zippered chest pocket and single rear pocket give the Boardmann the look of a jacket more than a jersey, while giving you plenty of space to store essentials.
