There are many components to a successful winter cycling outfit, but probably one of the most difficult to get right is the long sleeve jersey. Why?

The other layers you can shed as you ride. Headbands, gloves, gilets and overshoes can all be discarded as you warm up, but the long sleeve jersey stays put.

You need a long sleeve jersey that manages to keep you warm in fluctuating conditions while also allowing moisture to escape as you work up a sweat cranking up hills. It can seem like an impossible combination but think the HotShot jersey from Sugoi have got it right - and who are we to argue?


What have to say about the Sugoi HotShot Women's Long Sleeve Jersey?

This is a versatile and adaptable long-sleeved jersey. Thanks to its full front zip, fabric, cut and styling, it functions equally well as a training jacket (with a warm base layer underneath), as a cool-weather jersey (on its own or with a light base layer), or as a really cold weather mid-layer (underneath a windproof gilet). The cut is generous and has a good body length.
