Not everybody is into skin-tight clothing. Garneau designed the Equipe Semi-Pro Jersey for cyclist who take a more modest approach when getting suited up for a ride. The Equipe is still loaded with the features that you need to crush miles in the triple digits on your road bike, but its cut is more in tune if you want to mix it up on your mountain bike later in the week.
At the heart of the Equipe jersey is Garneau's legendary Diamond fabric. Known for providing excellent airflow, Diamond is the choice of many top riders for guaranteed comfort in hot weather. Its crosswise diamond pattern knit ensures that the fabric efficiently wicks moisture moisture away from the skin. This material not only keeps you dry, but prevents the jersey from sticking to your skin–a common source of abrasion. Additionally, Diamond's texture also creates a pocket of air between the skin and fabric, promoting a rapid moisture evaporation.
In terms of fit, Garneau designates the Equipe jersey as having a Semi-Pro Fit. This means that Garneau designed its cut around the position and movements of cycling. Unlike pro race jerseys, however, Semi-Pro has a slightly relaxed fit. You'll also notice that the Equipe provides you with a full-range of motion. This is credited in one part to the cut and secondly to the Diamond fabric's composition. In fact, Garneau purposefully designed to have a stretchable knit, which is reinforced by its 120g/m2 blend of microfiber and polyester.
For storage of your ride essentials, the Equipe jersey features three ample rear pockets that have been angled for quick access from the saddle.
The Louis Garneau Equipe Jersey is available six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/ginger/white, White/black/royal.

A little loose
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I'm 6'2" and weigh 176 lbs and I usually wear a large in LG jerseys. However, this one was looser than I thought (I was fooled by the semi-pro in the name). Also, these are not full zip which is a must have for me.
