When we were ten or eleven and were given our first proper cycling jersey -- having just graduated from over-sized tee-shirts -- we were not above wearing it wherever we went. That jersey probably logged more hours in a school chair than on a bike saddle. Since then, we seldom spend more time than is absolutely necessary in our cycling clothes -- sartorial taste and an understanding of ergonomic fit dictate compartmentalizing our wardrobe. However, the De Marchi Contour Plus Short Sleeve Jersey fits so amazingly well that it is the first time we have begun to consider whether it would actually not go too badly with our jeans on a short walk down to the coffee house. De Marchi accomplished this by using a fabric that is form-fitting but also wonderfully stretchy. It's ideal for a warm day when all you want to do is sit in the shade by the pool. DeMarchi used 3Dry Titanium fabric, which dries three times faster than your typical poly jersey. The titanium dioxide finish offers a natural, long-lasting anti-UV protection and it also keeps the odor to an absolute minimum. It is a form-fitting fabric, but never constricting, since De Marchi incorporated curved panels at strategic bending points in the body. De Marchi also uses the Body Framing System to ensure maximum of stability via an inelastic laser-cut back panel. It stabilizes the pockets, no matter they are. And since this jersey comes with four back pockets including a sweat proof zippered pocket, you'll be able to overload them. Anatomical, one-piece underarm vents to keep you cool and ventilated. The full length front zipper is made from 3mm gunmetal that has a smooth, silky glide so that you won?t ever have to worry about wrestling with it as you summit a mountain pass. The De Marchi Contour Plus Short Sleeve Jersey makes use of extremely visible 3M reflective details around the front and back of the jersey so that cars will be able to see you even when you are unexpectedly caught out after dark. It comes in White/Silver and Black/Iron. The Contour Plus is available in Small through XXX-Large.
