Everyone likes to look good, even out on the trails. I guess I’m no exception. I may sometimes be covered in mud, dust, scratches and occasionally blood, but I still like what I’m wearing to look good and be functional.
When I first started riding I would just wear old t-shirts. I found these to be hot, restrictive and uncomfortable at times. I looked around at what options there were for women’s mountain biking jerseys (as I’m not a fan of tight lycra) and decided to purchase a Fox women’s Ripley short sleeve jersey.
During my first ride in the Fox Ripley jersey I immediately noticed a difference when riding. I found the jersey to be extremely comfortable and just what I was looking for. It is light, breathable, and well ventilated, which reduced how hot I was getting when riding. It is perfect for riding in warmer temperatures. It wasn’t restrictive or tight-fitting and didn’t get in the way of my movements while I was riding. And, best of all, it looked good (even when I rode like a gumby).
The Fox Ripley jersey is an incredible value for the level of quality it offers. The jersey features a moisture-wicking polyester Fox Aircool main body, an optics wipe inside the hem, a rear loop audio interface, a zipper stash pocket on the side, comfort lapped collar and a tailored, women’s specific fit. The jersey I purchased was available in blue, neon red, Miami green, light grey, and came in sizes S, M, L, and XL.
If you’re looking for a comfortable, lightweight, breathable, fashionable, functional and durable jersey, I thoroughly recommend the Fox Ripley women’s jersey range.
My favourite feature of the Fox Ripley Jersey is the zipped pocket that is sewn into the side of the jersey. I find this pocket to be super useful to carry whatever trail items a girl may need.
I also love how durable and hard-wearing the jerseys are. I have had a number of unplanned stacks in my jerseys and each time they have never ripped or torn. They are pricier to buy than a simple t-shirt but they are extremely hard-wearing and should last for many years, which make the price you pay for them more than justifiable.
So if you’re looking for a comfortable, lightweight, breathable, fashionable, functional and durable jersey, I thoroughly recommend the Fox Ripley women’s jersey range. They are excellent value for money and they look great as well.
