A High-Quality Fit
The jersey shares the high-quality and superb stitching of the shorts. Like the shorts it has a comfortable free ride design that isn’t too tight or loose. For relative sizing: I’m 6′ 1″ and 175 lb. and the medium in both jersey and shorts (standard length) fit me very well. If you can tell from the photos, the jersey wears like a comfortable t-shirt. The back of the shirt has a longer tail-end that helps cover your butt while riding and keeps mud and water from flipping into your crack… it happens. You can also choose to add a zippered stash pocket. The jersey fabric wicks and breathes well. It’s a fairly thick stretchable material that should last a long time. Unlike the shorts which are neither slick nor rough, the jersey fabric has a slick feel to it, maybe something like the feel of thicker lycra. This presents a possible drawback that may divide opinions. I like the jersey and don’t mind the slicker feel, however a good riding buddy of mine prefers non-slick jerseys. I personally feel that the thicker jersey material lends itself best to long sleeve weather rather than the hot summer days in Utah’s desert. It makes a fantastic shoulder season jersey where you push hard, sweating up hills, and want some light insulation with good breathability. That said, the jersey seems well designed for the cool coastal climate of the Pacific Northwest where it’s made.
I’ll be getting more NWT3K clothing in the future, which is probably the best complement a company could earn. I hope this review’s been helpful and hope it helps out a small local American manufacturer that does things right.
