Liv Flara Thermal Long Sleeve Jersey review

Great for the fluctuating temperatures of autumn and spring, but a compromise in the pocket department.

Cycling Weekly Verdict

A mid-weight thermal jersey that will work well in autumn, in milder winter conditions, and just about copes when layered up on close-to-zero days. It's designed to be 'club fit', but we found it closer to aero, though that's no bad thing. The pocket design won't suit everyone, and the sleeves could do with a bit more give, but we found this jersey on the whole to be warm, comfortable, and suited to all but the coldest of UK winter days.

With the advent of highly technical fabrics, dressing for really hot or really cold days in the saddle is relatively straight forward. But what to wear when it's neither baking or bitter can be tricky, and can mean a ride either ends up a sweaty mess or cut short due to being too frozen to complete.
