Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.
Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chafing. Due to the compressive nature of the fabrics, you will be able to fit into more than one size. Please use the charts below to help determine your optimum size:

I ride in NW Colorado and our shoulder seasons can be long and filled with unpredictable weather. This jacket is the perfect piece to stuff in my saddle bag on a day when I might see wind or lots of sun or everything in between. It is warm and blocks the wind. I love the zipper pockets. It fits great over a jersey with things in the pockets, but has a slim enough fit to look good as a casual spring jacket off the bike. All my friends want one now!
I love the Recon. Easy to button and unbutton while riding. It's great for windy days and water resistant when you get stuck in a spring rain surprise. Only thing that is slightly annoying is the inner layer of the sleeves moves when you take the jacket off, so putting it back you have to work to readjust the inner lining.
Pretty great. I have struggled to find something that really works for those days around freezing that keeps me properly warm. This is it. It's light, and cozy and paired with the merino wool under shirt and just to be sure I wore my ultra light vest underneath for wind breaking (but didn't need it after I warmed up so I was able to take it off and roll it up and stuff it down the back of my bibs). I'm super glad I got this. it's perfect over either a LS jersey or Merino wool undershirt with full length bibs. Very happy with this piece.
This jacket has solved my winter riding problem. No matter how many layers I wore and how strategically I layered I could never stay warm on the road in under 40 degree temps. With a thin base layer and a single long sleeve underneath, this jacket keeps me comfortable at freezing temps. It is soft and never stiff. A game changer.
The jacket appears warmer than I expected and it looks great and casual on and off the bike. Off the bike, the jacket is suitable for 40F weather. But on the bike, it makes me toasted even below 30F. It immediately became one of my favorite outwear on and off the bike after the purchase. I'm 5'5 usually in XS jersey and bibs for racing cuts but always size up when purchasing velocio jersey to have a more relaxed fit. I got a size S of this jacket and it fits comfortable and casual. The complain is about the patch on the elbow - I don't know if it has any actual functionality, might just be an addition for some stylish design. However, as this jacket is designed for trail riding, you would expect your arm to have some/a lot contact with the bushes/branches from the side of the trail (especially on trails in Northeast, always in woods). Those contacts would easily pull the thread out from the patches on the elbow, to make my new jacket look old and worn out.
