For my latest review of the 2015 dhb range, I have asked my friend Angela to try out a couple of items from the women’s range. In a few day’s time I’ll publish the view of the matching bib shorts.
By way of introduction, Angela is an experienced cyclist and cycles the year round; her cycling includes sportives, commuting and some impressively long distances. Here’s her report:
Review – dhb women’s Aeron pro jersey
This is a jersey with a full length zip to the front, short sleeves, 3 back pockets plus a small zipped pocket for perhaps a mobile phone. My iPhone 5S fitted snugly. The pockets are a good size and will take a micro rain jacket, and the usual array of energy bars, gels some cash etc. I wasn’t sure about the full length zip having always gone for the shirt zip before, but it works well, especially if, like me, you are wearing a bib short with it, as it makes “comfort breaks” easier! The zip is lightweight and zips smoothly to the collar at the neck.
The collar fits snugly round my neck. Sleeves also are a snug fit, but allow for small adjustments to be made. They have a slightly grippy finish to the under-side of the edge band so that there is no riding up the arm. I haven’t had this before but they work well.
I found that on the move, the jersey is inclined to ride up a bit. There is a grippy band round the base of the jersey and the riding up was probably due to the bib shorts rather than lack of grip per se as the bibs have a very smooth finish. I’m not overly bothered by this. There is a breathable panel down the centre back and one under each arm pit which make for a comfortable ride experience.
Angela’s conclusion: a stylish comfortable jersey, lovely to wear.
