Polaris’s Women’s Mica Jersey is picked as Bikeradar’s Editors Choice for 2015.
Sometimes you find pieces of kit that outperform their price tag, and the Mica jersey from Polaris is just that.
It may not be the flashiest piece of kit out there but by gum this jersey has kept me warm, including fending off some icy blasts when riding up snow-scattered mountains in the UK’s Lake District.
The windproof fabric on the front of the jacket does an excellent job of keeping the breezes at bay, and the brushed-fleece-lined stretch jersey is cosy and warm. It isn’t the most breathable jersey I’ve tried, but the positives by far outweigh the negatives with this.
The full length zip and fitted design make this a great mid-layer item as well.
Polaris sizes on the generous side, so there’s room for a base layer or two underneath.
I’m also a fan of the thumbholes (to keep the sleeves down over your wrists) and the nice high collar, both of which are supremely effective at keeping cold air out.
