Product Reviews

  1. Great on and off the bike

    So good I just ordered another. Vents well on the bike for when its hot out and stylish enough for beers afterwards.
  2. All the compliments

    I get compliments every time I wear this jersey, and I find myself reaching for it almost every ride. It works on warm days, and is the perfect base layer under a flannel or jacket on cooler days. Very pleased with it!
  3. Good looking and Comfortable Kit

    Great looking piece of kit and extremely comfortable!
  4. Super stylish for before, during and after rides!

    Perfect for long summer rides and sitting in the pub after! Great fit, materials feel great and are impressively durable, unlike other merino items I've tried. My go to in summer and teams well with the Glidepath shorts for all-round MTB use
  5. The best shoulder season riding shirt

    This is the perfect weight for the shoulder season, the merino keeps you warm and cool and is great with odour, I used it for 3 consecutive rides no problem. Love the cut and style, it's my favourite riding shirt
  6. Comfortable both on and of the bike.

    The Desperado Henley is really comfortable both on and of the bike. It has a loose fit and really thin and comfy fabric. For my latest bikepacking event, Morocco Bike Adventure I used this as my of the bike jersey. As soon as I finished riding I changed from my sweaty Ashlu jersey into the ...

  7. Athlete Pick

    My go-to riding shirt. Lightweight merino wool is comfortable in any temp and keeps the stink away so I can wear it multiple days without having to go to the back of the line.
  8. Style on and off the bike!

    I love the Desperado Henley for it's casual style on and off the bike. You don't have to look like a cyclist all the time. I also really enjoy the blend of merino, for all conditions, but especially when weather can change quickly!
  9. A most excellent muti-day shirt

    This shirt is a workpiece in my day as a professional backcountry bike guide. It combines the best qualities of synthetics (longevity and hard wearing) and merino (wicking, temperature control and anti-funk characteristics) in one garment. Sure it is a little more to pay but it is worth it. It would ...

  10. Best jersey

    If you're looking for a simple jersey that fits great, resist's odor and looks cool....this is it.
  11. Great fit, perfect fall riding piece

    I've been using this piece for over a year now, and it's become a go-to piece for me in the fall. The merino keeps your temperature regulated well, even when wet. The Desperado has a great fit to it and the henley style makes you feel classy out there on the trail! The anti-smell ...

  12. Comfortable fit and not smelly!

    I love the comfortable fit, and it doesn't smell after repeated use. Also, excellent when you don't need a back pocket.
