I am really impressed by my Thermo Ascent jersey. I have already ridden in it, on several occasions, in temperatures ranging from 15 to 3 degrees centigrade. Partnered with a BOC merino base layer, it has coped excellently, keeping me warm, yet not sweaty in all conditions, whether climbing, descending or hammering home on the flat to avoid the rain. Even in the winter drizzle I didn’t get wet and at no point felt the need to reach for my waterproof.
The jersey has some outstanding features: the long sleeve length and elasticated cuffs means that you can tuck them into gloves to keep the cold out; the body length is good and ensures that the lower back is protected; the high collar keeps your neck warm; the rear zipped pocket easily swallows up an iPhone SE ( the new larger version). So, all-in-all, a great success!
Top notch. Great quality and keeps me toasty warm.
Keeps me warm, looks stylish, exactly what I need for winter riding.
Good quality. Sleeves a tad long but I can live with that.
I normally cook on climbs and freeze on descents then return home with a base layer drenched in sweat. I took this jersey out on a hilly ride today at about 6 degrees and it was awesome. It strikes the right balance between not overheating on the climbs and not getting cold on the descents and for the first time - no cold soaking wet base layer at the end so it is really breathable. Well impressed and will look to get another. I’m 90kg, 6’4” and the XXL is perfect.
