  1. Mikhal

    Comfortable, breathable

    Merino material is lightweight and very comfortable. Breathes really well, and has a cooling effect even in humid environments. Only negative is that the sleeves are long.

    Desperado Henley

    A great base layer for winter but also perfect on it’s own for warmer days in the saddle. I am 6’2”, 180lb and the medium fits me well.
  3. RJ

    We keep buying more

    My wife and I each own several colours of the Merino Henley... nice to have a comfy tee that isn't necessarily super tight. Casual and comfortable, especially on longer days out or on our bikepacking trips. Great product!

    Best. Shirt. Ever.

    I'm a big fan of wool shirts - this one takes the cake. It's nice and all. Comfy, relaxed fit, wicks well, doesn't smell, yadda. yadda. yadda. Reason it's a winner: it is tough too. I ate it a couple times, skidding down a rock on my back. My skin: roughed up and bleeding. ...

    Outstanding Shoulder Season Shirt

    I love this shirt. The merino fabric is a great weight. The Henley snaps are easy to use and quick to open. Sleeves are down to the elbow - a good length.
  6. Nolan @TheBikeSauce

    Great fit, works for mtb and gravel

    I’m abandoning form fit cycle jerseys for looser fit casual tops. Been waiting for this shirt to be back in stock since late 2020, and happy I waited. Always between medium and large, so I tried both and the medium is a perfect fit. Sleeves are a bit longer than I prefer, but works for road, ...

  7. Václav

    Great shirt for riding. It breath and that is the most important thing.

    One of the best short sleeve shirts for mtb I have ever tried. It breaths when it get hotter. There is not anything negative about it.

    Fit & Function

    I have been wearing this Henley jersey regularly for a few weeks and feel confident that this is my favorite Merino jersey. It is great for long weekends and bike trips when you might not be able to throw it in the wash as often as you'd like. The merino is soft and odor-free. I am ...


    Perfect for warm ride on Van isle

    Very nice fit. Light breathable, didn't feel like a cool teenager putting it on would and will definitely recommend.
  10. Bjorn


    Great piece of clothing. Can't wait to use this more. Just keeps you cool and fresh on Summer days.
  11. John

    Disproportionately Pleasing!

    When I ordered this I half thought it was going to sit in my wardrobe in sort of limbo between riding gear and casual gear. Instead it's become something which is my go-to top for gravel riding and on into the apres-ride socialising.

  12. TheFlyingBuffalo

    The perfect jersey

    This is the clothing equivalent of a quiver killer. Ride hard all day or ride for a coffee and leave it on for the rest of your day. It’s as comfortable on a trail or gravel epic as it is as a casual shirt for summer lounging. Get one of these. You will wear it everywhere.
  13. Dan

    Want to love this shirt

    Great fabric, but the relaxed fit isn't quite relaxed enough. Otherwise great style and comfort.
  14. Kerry


    I love merino and this jersey uses the wool better than any other I have used. It dries quick and stays fresh (smelling) all day. It fits athletically an isn't extremely baggy. Also, adjustable buttons on the chest are nice. Pocket in the back is clutch for a cc. Overall 10/10. New colors ...

  15. Nick

    Comfortable relaxed

    Shirt has a good feel. Airy and light, yet some warmth to it. Cut is comfortable and relaxed.
  16. Ryan

    My Favorite Riding Jersey

    This has quickly become my go to riding jersey. I am 6'1 205lb athletic build and the fit perfect. Fitted enough that it doesn't flap in the wind but enough room that it doesn't feel tight. Very breathable and super soft! Will buy again.
  17. Edoardo

    Tessuto perfetto

  18. KT

    Great casual/MTB shirt

    Shirt fits perfect for both riding and casual wear after the ride. Merino breathes well while riding and feels great. Very well designed shirt - another quality 7mesh product. Definitely recommend!
  19. Roberto

    The best Top for Gravel and MTB rides.

    Perfect for the late spring/summer. The perfect balance between ventilation and warmth. Just got the second color.
  20. robert

    A great garment that fits

    This is my second Desperado - I sized down to medium this time and I find the fit is now perfect. A very comfortable and airy jersey. Great detailing makes it look good too.
  21. Danny

    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.
  22. Scratch

    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!
  23. Tyler

    Good looking and Comfortable Kit

    Great looking piece of kit and extremely comfortable!
  24. Tom

    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
  25. Mike


    Awesome fit. Great material. This is my go to riding jersey as well as outdoor fitness shirt. 6’2” 200lbs, XL fits great, trim without being tight, not bulky.
  26. Lee

    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
  27. Daniel

    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 ...

    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.
  29. Scott

    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!
  30. Andrew

    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 ...

  31. Steve

    Best jersey

    If you're looking for a simple jersey that fits great, resist's odor and looks cool....this is it.
  32. StephenMatthews

    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 ...

  33. Oriol

    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.
