Still the best winter fabric

Wool is such a great winter jersey material, I'm not sure why we ever got away from using it. Sure, some of the new fabrics are lighter, but unless you are racing, wool will do just fine. This was my first experience with wool after trying the other stuff, and I won't be going back. These jerseys have three features which makes them stand out to me. First, they keep me warm in a wide range of temperatures and have been comfortable. I have ridden anywhere in the mid 20's to mid 50's with no problem. When coupled with my Showers Pass Elite jacket, I stay dry and warm. I do have to open up the zippers on each to adjust for the different temperatures, but nothing that I can't deal with. Second, it wicks away sweat better then anything else. I find this a big advantage when I have to stop for any length of time. Lastly, it does not stink after after you sweat in it. Also, it's nice to support an American company that is making an great product!

Adequate Merino Wool Mid Layer

I live in Chicago and ride in a temperature range of about 35 degrees to 50 degrees in the winter. I have worn the Kucharik jersey over a base layer, and under my Gore Element Jersey during the coldest temps. The Merino wool performs as you would expect, it is warm and stays reasonably dry. Quality is good. I was not real happy with the sizing, though. I am 5'11 and have a 41 chest and I bought a Large, which originally seemed fine. It is comfortable in the neck, the arms are generous, and the length of the torso at the back seemed overly long, so I was pretty sure the XL would have been too big. After a few months of wear and washings, but never put in the dryer, always dried on a rack, it seems like the length of the torso, at the waist has really shrunk. It barely goes past my waist now, and I feel like I have to keep pulling on it to get it down where I want it, but then it pulls at the neck. The three rear pockets are so high now I can barely get my hand up high enough while reaching around to access them, although I don't ever use them. In my opinion the garment would be better without them, the double fabric caused by the pockets creates a hot spot. I would not recommend this one. I would try to find another Merino Wool jersey with a better fit, less shrinkage. An XL would be too baggy in the chest, and too long in the arms. Kucharik boasts less than 5% shrinkage, but I think it is more than that.

Nice blast from the past. Very comfortable - recommend getting one size smaller.

The jersey is what I expected. Feel a lot like wool jerseys I wore back in the 70's and 80's. I also like plain jerseys that don't have advertising.

I recommend getting a size smaller. Last year I bought a large directly from Kucharik and while it is a nice jersey it is a little big for me. I just bought two from Bike Tires Direct that are mediums and they fit great. Note I am tall and thin and even the lengths of the arms are good.

My new favorite jersey

I'm a year round cycle commuter and weekend rider. Riding in Portland in the winter requires a mix of versatile gear. Warmth and dry are two big features for me. This jersey is super breathable and very warm even when wet.

I've long been a fan of the Pearl Izumi thermal jerseys & find this jersey to be equally warm, but has better coverage(esp sleeve length).

Great for layering and hasn't yet gotten stinky like synthetic fibers can . Sometimes .

Nice jersey for TALL guys

I wear the Kooch wool jersey in temps between 40 -68 deg F, No complaints about the materials, and construction, but the fit is extra long, better suited to those 6'3. On me, it looks more like a tunic than a jersey. If you wear a 42 long sport jacket, then you better go one size smaller.

Great wool jersey

I really love my Kucharik wool jerseys (I own two). In the winter I wear one under my jacket and they are just right for 40-ish temps. I like the way they wick moisture away from my skin, they don't develop odors like many synthetics and they last for years. Merino wool is soft, doesn't itch, doesn't shrink and is easy to wash. I also really like the fact that they are made in the USA.

I should have purchased this several years ago

I should have purchased such a jersey several years ago. It is incredibly comfortable during the Fall and Winter long rides and very convenient with the three back pockets. I am getting a second one soon.

misleading product description

I ordered this because it said it was 100% merino wool.

The cuffs and collar are made with cotton. This means the cuffs and collar don't wick. At all.

I wouldn't recommend this jersey until they change the cuffs and collar.

BikeTiresDirect.com Comments

Hi,

Thanks for your review! According to Kucharik, this jersey is in fact 100% wool, including the cuffs and collars, though they are knit differently (ribbed). We'd love to help you out with a return if you're not satisfied with your jersey. Just get in touch with our customer service department at sales@biketiresdirect.com.

Thanks,
Stacia

Comfy

Usually don't wear something this bikey on my daily commute but these jerseys are too comfy not to. Also wore on 100 mile ride in iffy weather and again comfy - not too hot and breathes better than tech fibers. I bought orange medium (medium sometimes tight but this was not).

Well made and comfy

I typically wear a large and this jersey in a large fits perfectly, (meaning loose enough to be comfortable, not aero), even after multiple washings. It is thin enough to wear up to about 65 degrees with the sleeves pushed up. I combined it with layers for temps of about 53 or less. The feel of the merino wool is very soft without any hint of itchiness.

I purposely wore it longer without washing to test the odor control and it only continued to have a slight wool smell.

All that and it's made in the USA!

Great for those cool mornings or lgiht sprinkles

This is my first foray into the world of wool cycling gear. I really like this jersey. It is great for those cool mornings or light sprinkles. And if I don't have time to hit the showers before my first meeting at work, I don't have to worry about smelling like I didn't have time to hit the showers before my first meeting.

It's a bit pricey but wool is hot right now so companies can get us to pay it.

After all these years

This is my second kucharik wool jersey. My first one is over 30 years old, a little faded a few moth holes but still fits and keeps me warm like only wool will do. Pockets that have been overstuffed repeatedly over the years, remain as tight as my new one. I actually was looking for something a little flashier, but you can't beat the price and the wear value. The deciding factor - it's made in the USA! My new Kucharik (large) has a longer front zipper for better venting ability. The fit, like my old one is perfect allowing for additional under layers without getting stretched out of shape ( I am 5'11 with a 32 inch waist line and a 40 inch chest) . The quality and workmanship is as good as my old one which means I will be buried in it, nah that would be a waste of a fine product. Thanks Kucharik!
