De Marchi developed its Women's Long Sleeve Jersey as a mid-weight, thermal jersey for cool fall and early winter rides. It was made with a lightweight, brushed fabric that provides a light layer of insulation, and it was cut to perfectly mirror the female body while in the cycling position. And as with everything De Marchi, the small finishing details truly set this jersey apart from the competition.
The Women's Long Sleeve jersey falls under De Marchi's "W2" grid rating, meaning that it provides medium insulation when worn alone in low temperatures. This is accomplished through the use of an ultra-soft, brushed-back material known as Dry3+. This is De Marchi's proprietary hydrophobic polyester microfiber that's comfortable on the skin, lightweight, breathable, and thermally efficient. This version of the Dry3+ relies on a brushed face that smoothly wraps your upper arms and torso, as well as providing a touch insulation.
As with all De Marchi jerseys, the Long Sleeve was made with a both maximum freedom of movement and the best materials available. Its anatomical, women's-specific fit was made possible using pre-shaped fabric panels that closely follow the body while in motion. When sewn together, these panels form somewhat of a three dimensional shape on their own, mimicking the body before even reaching your shoulders. The result is a jersey that eliminates all unnecessary material, leading to the best fit possible.
De Marchi also spent considerable time focusing on the Long Sleeve's finishing details as it did refining the fabrics and fit. You'll notice that the jersey features a taller-than-average collar and a subtle drop-tail hem, both of which work to provide added coverage from the elements. A full-length zipper rounds out the front, and two side-zip-access pockets line the rear.
The De Marchi Women's Long Sleeve Jersey is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Amethyst, Black, Coffee, and Magnesium.
