dhb Ladies Glitch Long Sleeve Jersey

 

For their ladies Glitch long sleeved jersey, dhb have used a super soft Roubaix fabric that is fleecy on the inside for both warmth and to help wick away moisture. 

 

dhb Ladies Glitch Long Sleeve Jersey

 

We have no complaints about the performance of this fabric, testing it both as a mid-layer under a winter jacket and also as a top layer at the Newport velodrome, when we rode some good hard intervals.  Arguably the velodrome is the tougher environment for testing clothing, because if the layers don’t really do what they promise, you quickly get cold when you come down off the track for a drink or to change gears, but we are happy to report that this jersey kept us both warm and dry.

 

Apparently this is no ordinary Roubaix fabric, this is premium 'Powder Dry Soft' Roubaix fabric and it had possibly the softest feel to the touch that we have ever had the pleasure of wearing.

 

The jersey is designed to be aerodynamic and form fitting and certainly we found that it did not bunch or bag anywhere.  The cut covers the lower back well, whilst the front is shorter - a combination that works really when on the bike and it is all held nicely in place by the dhb gripper tape around the bottom edge.  The very flattering look is enhanced by the white panels that run up the sides of the jersey, flash across the shoulders and then extend under the arms, all the way to the cuffs – simple but visually very effective.

 

dhb have made a feature of the full zip by choosing a deep pink colour for it but they have not included a port for the zip pull to tuck away in when it is fully zipped up.  To be fair, when we were wearing the jersey we were not aware of the zip pull at all, but it is the kind of detail that we look for.

 

There are three generously sized and easily accessible pockets on the back and dhb have included reflective inserts on either side of these.  The dhb logo’s front and back are also reflective – it all helps.

 

Warm but lightweight, the dhb Ladies Glitch long sleeve jersey is a form fitting layer that will work well in winter and spring – flattering and functional, and as with all dhb kit, great value for money too.
