Vulpine's flagship Alpine Jersey is a remarkable thing. The Vulpine team have poured their love and expertise into its creation and come up trumps. This is a first class cycling jersey fit for so much more than cycling.
The Vulpine Alpine Women's Cycling Jersey is cut for serious riding in mind. The full length zip and deliberately longer back are designed for long rides in the saddle. It's made of the finest Tasmanian merino wool, which makes it virtually impossible to make smelly. It wicks away moisture naturally, and keeps you warm for cooler days or long descents, but will keep you cool and fresh on hotter outings or big climbs. A true miracle material.
Typical of Vulpine, it's not all about technical prowess - yes, the detailing of the angled triple pockets, the ingenious zip docking, flatlock stitching, anti-slip silicone waistband and v-stitched engraved buttons is remarkable. It's also about wearability - it's achingly stylish, and equally perfect for a serious ride, for your daily commute or for just wearing around town.
This latest Alpine Jersey has increased load capacity in the rear pockets, and reduced their stretch. Merino is a naturally stretchy material, and Vulpine recommend that care should still be taken not to fill the pockets as you might in a synthetic jersey - roughly two energy bars, banana, tube, phone and wallet should be enough. Ample for a good ride.
Care: Please note that merino can catch on sharp things like keys and brambles. If a hole appears, this can be easily darned. We suggest that you wash the Alpine Jersey in a wash bag with similar items, and don't use fabric conditioner. Zips, velcro and metal trims can damage merino during washing - keep these seperate, then dry the jersey flat. With a little care, the Alpine Jersey should become a long-term luxurious favourite.
Vulpine's Alpine Cycling Jersey is made of pure merino, meaning it curves and fits itself to you more flatteringly than many artficial materials.
Vulpine size their cycling garments based on body measurements only. The team have worked hard to ensure that their clothes are cut with the correct amount of room to fit the measurements on the guide.
Please measure yourself following the instructions before choosing what size to buy, as sizes do vary wildly between brands.
Measure around the fullest part of your chest, keep the tape level, under your arms and breath naturally. Do not tense up!

Vulpine was founded by Nick & Emmalou Hussey at around the same time as VeloVixen. Coming from backgrounds in film & design, they put their life savings and house into creating the company.
They now have a little boy, Millar, and a daughter Lyra. They've had cycling genetically implanted into them. The team has grown significantly through less organic means too. Vulpine have quickly become one of the biggest and most ambitious names in cycling. Crucially, office Jack Russell Lily, remains in a position of responsibility.
They've put in years of painstaking design, research and testing to create stylish cycling apparel that you'll actually want to wear both for cycling and for when you get where you're going. They've have made sure that it is all cut for cycling, with a classic British tailored influence. They've chosen sophisticated colours that don't just mimic other products out there. They've added innovations that are practical without being dull. And visibility features that you can wear with pride.
Vulpine has been a dream for most of Nick's adult life. He fell in love with cycling as a child, quickly graduating to pretty serious road racing and time trialling. But the enjoyment of cycling in all its forms is absolutely key to all the Vulpine team members. They believe we are all Cyclists, but also people with lives off the bike as well as on. We look forward to working with them as their exponential growth and profile continues.

Great top worth the extra spendReview by Redman (Posted on May 18, 2015)
I really like this jersey, it's a bit longer in the body (the usual tight Italian brand tops never seem to fit me well) and is very flattering to your figure. But it's also a great performing top, it kept me both warm when I needed but didn't make me overheat in a typical May Day of cycling ( cold in the morning warming up through the day). Best of all it doesn't make you smell, with the merino wool doing a great job of letting your body breathe - would highly recommend
VeloVixen Says: Carol, are you sure you're not moonlighting as a VeloVixen marketing expert! Just what we think, but it's great to know you found the same.
