The Alpine Thermal has been designed for cool/cold weather rides and/or commuting in predominantly dry conditions. Because of it's 3 rear pockets, zippered valuables pocket, breathable, stretch fabric and reflective features, this jersey is one of the most versatile garments we manufacture. Alone it performs well in temperatures ranging between 40-65°F, with various vest and base layer combinations you can easily stay warm down into the low 30's. Reflective placements are subtle, yet extremely bright (350+ Lumens), and have been strategically placed for maximum visibility; on the forearms and down either side of the rear pockets.
The locking YKK zipper also has reflectivity down both sides of the teeth. We've been especially meticulous about the pocket design to ensure practical usability and optimal packability of cold weather supplies; a slightly-wider center, "dump" pocket makes for ease of use with gloves and allows for storage of a vest, wind/rain jacket or bulky gloves. A zippered valuables pocket is ideal for I.D. or cash.
