A thermal jersey like the Chapeau! Madeleine Thermal Long Sleeve Jersey is ideal for autumn, spring and milder winter outing. Or wear it as a mid layer insulator on truly wintery days, over a base layer and under a jacket to protect you from extreme cold.
To keep it this versatile, the team at Chapeau! have ensured it's neither too bulky nor over fussy, the thermal fabric trapping enough warmth but still letting your body breathe.
It has all the essential features you'd expect - refined fit, perfect pockets for a long ride, including 2 small side pockets for a pump or smaller snack. And then there's that distinctive yet classy graphic, which is bound to get envious looks in your riding group.
Chapeau's Club jerseys are designed with a 'compression' fit in mind - this means that they may feel a little tighter than you might be used to when you first put them on. However, unless it feels instantly uncomfortable, this is likely to work in your favour as it actually helps your muscles to work more efficiently through each part of the event.
They are only producing a limited size range for now, meaning that sizes larger than L are unfortunately not (yet) available.

We admired Chapeau! from afar for years before finally consummating our relationship and finding a loving way to offer our customers their beautiful kit.
Based in Exeter, they are a truly British team - something that reflects in their designs as well as their attention to technical detail.
So what kind of folk are they? We think they hit a great balance between a true passion for cycling and a refusal to take it (or themselves) too seriously. They hate cycling stereotypes, love cake, hate cycling snobbery, love inclusivity. They respect cyclists of all types, look after their bikes and kit like their own children, and truly want to share their passion with others.
In short, they're our kind of people. And the proof couldn't be clearer: 'Chapeau!', in case you weren't aware, is French for 'hat', and is the traditional cycling parlance to pay tribute to a fellow cyclist's efforts.
We say 'Chapeau!' to them.
