Kalf Club Ther­mal £75

Cycling Weekly - - TECH GROUPTEST -

Ital­ian ther­mal Roubaix fab­ric is the base ma­te­rial for this rea­son­ably priced jersey, which also comes in a men’s fit.

The rel­a­tively high Elas­tane con­tent makes for a close fit and the up­per back, front pan­els and backs of the arms fea­ture a thicker, brushed ma­te­rial for ad­di­tional warmth. Although this is a great idea, the ex­tra layer sewn into the back/ in­side of the arm is not flat stitched and presents a very slight nui­sance. The fit is quite short — long enough that you’re never in dan­ger of

ex­pos­ing flesh but it is nice to have a lit­tle ex­tra length in win­ter. Clo­sure comes from a chunky ful­l­length zip, and there are three rear pock­ets plus one zipped valu­ables keeper.

The Kalf is breath­able while feel­ing cosy. The fab­ric is rel­a­tively light, so would need to be paired with a gilet be­yond Oc­to­ber. It car­ries a price tag that sits be­low the pre­mium fit it of­fers. Jer­seys that of­fer sim­i­lar lev­els of warmth and breatha­bil­ity are avail­able at a sim­i­lar price tag, but the fab­ric used sets it ahead of most.
