I’ve been really stoked on Club Ride gear lately. Their products are the perfect combination of form and function, and the Queen Anne jersey is no different.
This jersey features Dri-Sulate wool-poly blend fabric for superior warmth and comfort no matter what the weather. It layers well with multiple thicknesses of base layers for a variety of conditions, and of course, looks cool while doing it.
The Queen Anne has a full front zip, two rear pockets, and a media port in one of the pockets for easy access to your tunes. Thumbhole cuffs, UV protection, and subtle reflective accents complete the package. The only complaint I have is that the rear pockets don’t zip or have any sort of elastic to keep the openings tight, so sometimes I fear that things will bounce out when the going gets rough. But that being said, I haven’t had any issues yet.
This women’s jersey comes in two colors–Porto Red, which is much like maroon (shown in pictures), or Dark Charcoal, which is a dark grayish blue.
This top has become a favorite for colder weather rides, and it doubles nicely as during-ride and post-ride apparel. Over the holidays, my husband and I rode 200 miles to his parents’ house, and I used the Queen Anne as an extra layer in the middle of the night when temps dipped into the low 20s. I then wore it for the next two days straight, even to Thanksgiving dinner, and it didn’t even begin to smell funky.
The Queen Anne has become my cold-weather go-to piece for those situations in which I’d like to ride to get somewhere, and once I’m there, I’d like to look somewhat presentable, but I don’t want to carry an entire change of clothes with me. It’s flattering, yet warm and functional. It doesn’t get better than that!
Thank you to Club Ride for providing me with the Queen Anne jersey to review.
