Let 'em kiss your Italian sass.
The Capo Bacio Women's Short Sleeve Jersey turns heads when it's on a hanger. But that's not why you should wear it. The fit is incredible, and the jersey is cool and comfy on the hottest days.
The secret is liberal use of HydroDrop Fabric. It makes up most of the jersey. This is a stretchy microfiber that feels soft, stretches almost as much as Lycra, and wicks and breathes great. The name comes first from the hydrophilic treatment that is given to the fabric to help draw moisture into the fabric, and second from the thinner drop-shaped areas that run throughout the jersey. This three-dimensional patterning further helps dissipate sweat. The "drops" are actually shaped differently throughout the jersey, minimizing and maximizing stretch where it is needed.
The side panels are made of Silver. Silver is Capo's dual-knit microfiber mesh that has silver threads woven into the fabric. You'll see what we're talking about when you turn the jersey inside out. The silver is naturally anti-bacterial, keeping that potentially odoriferous zone of your jersey smelling ready for polite company.
The Capo Bacio Women's Short Sleeve Jersey comes with a full-length lockable hidden zipper, better for opening quickly and holding in place. There are two back pockets. A gel gripper holds the waist hem to your shorts. The colors are Black, Celeste, and White. Sizes run from X-Small to Large.
- 3 back pockets stash your ride essentials
- HydroDrop fabric is hydrophilic for rapid moisture transfer

One of my favorite jerseys, especially in the summer. Love the fit, color and fabric.
I bought the 2011 model, which only has two pockets. I'm glad they upgraded to 3 pockets in the 2012 version.
Are the sleeves too short to be able to...
Are the sleeves too short to be able to wear with arm warmers? I kinda like being able to match jerseys to specific shorts so I was gonna buy the whole outfit, but round this time of year I think would be practical if the jersey sleeves were long enough to work with arm warmers. Because in warmer weather I tend wear sleeveless.
You shouldn't have any problems with the arm warmers with this jersey; sleeve length is pretty much the 'standard' length of most all short-sleeved road jerseys. Hope this can still help.
Another great from Capo
Bought this for my gf and she loves it! Glad Capo decided to put three back pockets for 2012 because one would not cut it for her. Great ventilation jersey and stylish.
Comfortable in the heat
I live in the Sonoran desert with temperatures ranging from 80-113F(daytime) in the valley to 55-78 F on the mt.s and I can say that this is my favorite jersey to ride in all these ranges. It is thin and lightweight with excellent breathability. I have the white and need to wear a bra under as there is see through. (typical of white material) It's full zipper front is convenient, and it was just enough collar for cooler mornings in the spring. I haven't worn it in the winter yet but did wear it on a freak cold morning in the Spring with just a wind breaker and I was perfect. (a little warm actually) My only complaint is that it has 2 pockets and not 3. 5 stars, all in all, for a jersey that is comfortable, fits well and can be worn all year!

Love this jersey!
This jersey feels awesome, the fabric is great, even in the Mississippi heat! The photo is a tad deceiving, you can't really see the "texture". It's definitely a "mesh". It's cool and very comfortable, very fitted and lightweight. The description says it has a gel gripper to hold the waist hem to your shorts, I have this jersey in two different colors, neither of which have ANY sort of gripper, which I really would like. Overall, it's an excellent jersey to own and if you have a Bianchi like I do, the colors in this jersey match perfectly with Bianchi Celeste!
