Pearl IzumiMen's Attack Thermal Jersey(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
Two rides/80 miles with the Attack Thermal Jersey, so far, so good!
Reasonably warm in mild temps ~50-55deg using a lightweight vest. For sure, base layer and or shell/jacket for colder temps.
I find the material of this jersey to be very soft and comfortable. The sleeves are plenty long enough and overall, the fit is very good. I would say it has a 'training' cut with room for a base layer. I wish the cut was just a smidge tighter, slightly more form fitting - 6' - 156lbs - 40" chest.
I think this jersey is gonna see a lot of use this winter, I really like it.
This is the warmest bike jersey I've found. On days when 34 and lower, I wear a Assos skinfoil, the PI jersey and a Specialized fleece jacket. It's become part of my "go to" kit for the coldest Portland days. And, unsolicited: I called BTD help desk saying that a pair of gloves that had been delivered didn't look as if they'd be warm enough. The sales agent said he had the pair I'd just bought and was comfy into the 20s. Plus, If I tried them and didn't find them satisfactory, I could return them. That's a no risk proposition and great customer service.
I decided to extend my riding season this year and have purchased a few different long sleeve jerseys. I seem to have better luck with PI sizing as I am a 66 year old 6' 180lb person with a non athletic physique. It will stay in the rotation during the colder months ahead.
This jersey is a pretty great layer for ~50 degree days. Layer a wind vest on top when the temps drop into the 40s, and add another thermal layer to go colder than that. The fit is really good, I'm 6'2"/200lbs/42chest/34 waist, I got a large and its got a good fitted appearance--doesn't flap but isn't skin tight. I liked it so much I bought a second one.
I wear it in cool temperatures in upstate NY with a baseline shirt and a jacket. Temperature ranges in the upper 20's and 30's. I like it because I don't have to wear too many layers of clothes during the winter riding.
This thermal has been great over the last few cold weeks. It is soft and of obvious high quality. With an undershirt I was good down to 45F. With an undershirt and a vest on top, my trunk was okay at 27F. Now to work on my fingersï¿½
Bought this jersey for late fall/early winter rides in the woods during hunting season. Like the fabric and color is right on the money, but wish it was a more snug fit. Might be tempted to go down a size if I bought again.
