Polaris Niteride Long Sleeve Jersey - riding

For a scratch under £45 (if you shop around online), you get a long sleeve jersey with a YKK full length front zip and 3 rear elasticated pockets, with an extra zippered pocket on the middle one. The jersey is made from Therma-Stretch which looks like your usual Roubaix brushed fabric, with the windproofness taken care of by a micro fibre front lining panel.

It keeps the wind out just as well as more expensive branded products, for me it worked fine down to about 4-5 degrees with just a light weight short sleeve merino base layer underneath.

The Therma-Stretch fabric isn't fantastic at wicking moisture away. It's not as bad as boil-in-the-bag waterproofs, but it's not quite as good as some more expensive windproof shells I've used. The only heat regulation you get is with the front zip; there are no pit vents.

The Niteride has thumb holes in the sleeves which I think are a bit pointless, well they were for me anyway as they create pressure points on my palms holding on to the handlebars.

In terms of sizing, the Niteride leans more towards the touring end as opposed to a snug racing fit, the back goes down quite a long way (and stays there thanks to a gripper hem) which really helps keep you warm. An added benefit of this is that the rear pockets are nice and low, making them easy to get things in and out of. To give some idea of sizing: I'm 5'10" and weigh 80kg; the large fits me fine.

If you're cycling in the dark, the reflective detailing should help keep you seen.

It's available in blue and red, and you can get it in small, medium, large, XL and XXL.

Verdict

The Polaris Niteride will keep you toasty on winter rides and cooler days with some money to spare for a coffee AND some cake.
