Depending on where you ride, you might wear a heavy-duty jacket a few times a year, but a long sleeve jersey like Specialized's Therminal Long Sleeve Jersey has the potential to be worn on every ride.
This jersey is made from Specialzied's Therminal fabric, which is designed to both insulate and manage moisture buildup. To do so, it has a brushed fleece interior with a light loft that pulls moisture away from skin to evaporate it at the material's surface. This loft also has the added benefit of insulation, which occurs by trapping tiny pockets of warmth between the skin and the fabric. The result? Consistent warmth that doesn't come with the risk of overheating. Keeping with this theme, the jersey has a pop collar to keep the wind off of your neck and out of the jersey.
In terms of fit, the Therminal features Specialized's Standard Fit, which means that it'll lie close to the body, while still allowing ample room for layering underneath. And for storage, you'll find three back expansion pockets and one zippered security pocket to hold all of your ride essentials..
