The Draw: High Breathability
If this super-bold garden party print is your cup of tea, you’ll also appreciate the performance specs that will keep you from wilting on hot rides. The jersey (Sheena pictured), which felt like a second skin thanks to its soft poly-blend fabric, has a perforated back panel that has a strong cooling effect. A reflective strip on the back pockets is also a smart visibility feature, and we loved the wide, elastic-free bands at the arm openings. The halter bibs’ (Petunia pictured) unique netting around the torso adds to the kit’s breathability, and the chamois felt supportive, but not stiff, while the leg openings were supremely comfy. This kit runs small, so opt for the next size up.
