Craft Active Bike Women’s Jersey


First impressions are all good, the Craft Active Bike women’s jersey looks great.  We particularly liked the blue; not too dark but not to light, plus some figure flattering white panels and trims. It is perfectly cut for a sporty figure and has an appropriately longer back to eliminate skin exposure when on the bike.

So it looks the part and just as importantly it functions at an equally high standard too. The jersey has ventilation panels under the arms, which extends round to the back, ensuring that in hot conditions the air flow is maximised. The frontal zip is not a full one, but is certainly long enough to unzip and provide further air flow when it really gets warm.


If you are looking for a functional jersey for warmer days this one has to be close to the top of the list. 100% polyester results in an exceptionally light garment that feels really soft against the skin, but that can be shoved in a 40 degree wash with most day-to-day garments.  We are tired of storing up smelly cycling kit until we have enough for a load at 30 degrees!


The central rear pocket is roomy and incorporates a fourth zip up pocket, which is great for keys or money. However, while trying to maintain a smooth female cut on the jersey, Craft have simply managed to add two ‘not so useful’ rear side pockets. Good perhaps for a mitt or small tool, but beware that nothing slips out of them. However, this was the only negative point we could find with the jersey and we looked hard!


Flattery cut and style.  An ideal lightweight jersey for a super hot day, or use as a 'layering' garment for a cooler weather.
