The long sleeved women’s Synergy jersey from 7mesh could almost be described as a ‘must have item’ for female riders - if you’re looking for one piece of apparel which will be useful and comfortable over a wide range of ride conditions, this could be just the item you are after. This is because it feels and breathes like a lightweight jersey but has the weather protection of a jacket. And whilst it is not 100% waterproof, it is highly water resistant thanks to the use of Gore Windstopper material - this means that over most conditions it will actually be more comfortable than a fully waterproof option because of the better breathability of the fabric. It also has a water resistant front zip for additional protection from the wet.
The Synergy has good temperature regulation properties and will feel comfortable in cooler and warmer weather - in fact the temperature range is ideal for much of the year in temperate climates like the UK, especially on rides where you will experience a range of temperatures, for example if you start off early or go for a ride after work when the temperature is dropping as you’re riding.
Other nice features on the Synergy include the very generous provision of five rear pockets (three regular pockets and two zipped ones), a ride articulated cut (meaning the jersey fits really well when you’re stretched out on the bike), reflective details, gripper hem and pocket headphone ports and headphone loops on the collar so you can listen to some tunes while riding (if you are in the right conditions for this of course). A real winner of a jersey!
