Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Santini Colore Winter Long Sleeve jersey, with its simple construction and use of a single thermal fleecy fabric in a single colour, has an appealing authenticity about it. It performs well in mid season temperatures, it’s comfortable, stylish, good quality, well made – in Italy – and durable, so I can certainly recommend it.

The Santini Colore long sleeved jersey is a comfortable, stretchy, fleece-lined garment that despite the ‘winter’ designation is actually ideal for spring or autumn riding. Its temperature range is quoted as being 8-15°C, which I would say is exactly right. It’s not waterproof or windproof, so in wetter or chillier conditions it would need a shell over the top.
