    Thanks for writing this review. If you all get the chance, I’d love to see a follow-up review down the road, especially regarding durability and smell. I generally stick to wool and cotton because for me, synthetic blends start to stink horribly after a couple of months. However, I’ve never found cotton and wool to be as durable as synthetic. It’d be great if a tough jersey didn’t have a “stink memory” quickly recalled by a bit of body heat.

  • Grant. Will do. That is something we are interested in as well, since up to this point we’ve only used 100% wool gear.

    I bought a Road Holland jersey a little over a year ago and it’s great. I went with the brighter orange color since I commute and do a lot of city biking and wanted to be as visible as possible. And I bought it for the very reasons you brought up: it doesn’t scream, “I’m cycling” (even though it functions as you’d want a jersey to function). It’s gone through multiple washings and is still holding up fine. Money well spent.

    Russ – thanks for a great review! Durability is one of the strong points of the fabric. I’m super anal about all of my clothes – not just my riding ones – and hate when things start to look old before their time. That is one of the things that attracted me to this fabric. It wears like iron.

    The reason is the inclusion of the poly. The fabric is plated – on the inner side is the wool and on the outer is the poly. Therefore, you don’t get that “pilly” look that wool so often gets with time. The poly helps retain the garment’s shape and beautiful luster. (I know it sounds strange to speak of riding gear that way but luster is about the best word I can use!).

    I have jerseys I’ve washed more than a hundred times and they still look great.

    Happy riding!
