I love the rugged texture and weight of this shirt. It’s made of a heavy polyester weave, not your soft preppy stuff, meaning extra protection when you’re riding single track in cooler weather. The cut is trim and athletic, but not inhibiting. Mesh in the underarms allows venting, and a rear zipper pocket can store your iPod or gel packets. Reflective accents on the cuffs are a nice touch for safer biking at night. I wear mine to work, to the trail and to the tavern. Available in rust or olive. $100. clubrideapparel.com
