Description

Don’t let the weather hold you back.

For days that start chilly and stay that way, a thermal jersey may be fine. But if it's blustery and wet, you might opt for something that can keep you protected from the biting effects of cold temperatures and penetrating wind. The Garneau Glaze Long Sleeve Jersey has a front that is made of Light Wind Dry 3 fabric. It's a three layer material that sandwiches a windproof membrane between two soft knit layers. In fact, it's also waterproof. This doesn't mean that the Glaze Jersey will keep you dry in a downpour. Rather it implies that you can grind away on your quest for base miles without fretting about spray from wet roads or an intermittent drizzle.

With the front side protected from the wind, the rest of your torso simply needs comfortable insulation. Garneau uses HeatMaxx fabric on the back, on the back of the arms, and around the waist. It's brushed on the inside to provide insulation and a cozy feel. If you like a high collar, you'll love the Glaze Jersey. It's tall enough to provide real protection for your neck when fully zipped, and a zipper garage at the very top protects your neck from getting pinched or chafed. If you prefer a more airy feel, the collar is easy enough to fold down. The zipper has a full length draft flap to seal out the breeze.

The Garneau Glaze Long Sleeve Jersey comes in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and is available in three colors -- Black/white, Ginger/black, and Yellow. It has three pockets on the back, with the outer two being angled for easier access with gloved hands. Reflective elements give you 360° of visibility in low light conditions.

My go to jersey
My go to jersey

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have owned this jersey for a year now and it is my go to long sleeve jersey. I have ridden both road and commuting in it. My commuter bike is an old mountain bike. So in both positions I have been comfortable in it. It blocks the wind very well and keeps me warm in temps down to 40. Lower than that I put on a base layer and then start adding a 2nd long sleeve jersey and jacket if needed. I will say that I have continued to ride this winter even with temps in the Negatives most mornings. I arrive at work after a short 3mile ride with some sweat on my base layer. If it gets into the 50's this jersey may not breath as well as most like. In these temps I tend to switch to a short sleeve jersey and arm warmers and possibly a long sleeved base layer. For size, I have a Lg. I am 6'3 and 185Lbs- Tall and real skinny. I don't have much for upper body muscle. This jersey fits me nicely. Not to snug but also not flapping in the wind.

Love this Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Have been pairing this jersey with a Craft baselayer. Fit is pro-fit so if you are a little thicker in the middle you may want to find a club-fit jersey. Chart sizing is accurate. Riding here in the Mojave during winter is cold, windy but dry. The baselayer/jersey combo has been perfect down to 32 degrees w/ 17 MPH winds. Hasn't been colder but I'm confident it'll be fine even lower. The high neck is uber functional when in the drops, covers all the way up to under the chin and comfortable. I've also used it in temps up to the 50s and concur with the other posters about limited breathability and sweat containment; however, I'd purchased it for use in 40s and below weather and in that capacity it's perfect. One thing I was impressed with is the elastic on the back pockets. They're pretty tight (in a good way) and provide great closure and retention. Items don't slop around in the pockets and I was confident nothing was going to come out. I'm stoked on this jersey and will be getting one in the high viz yellow as well.

Pleasantly Surprised

Bought this on sale and like other reviewers I was a little put off by the tall front neck piece when I first tried it on. However, on riding I found it to be a well designed addition. In low 50s cloudy conditions, it was more wind resistant and warmer than my thermal PI elite soft-shell jersey. In fact, this jersey is about halfway between a PI elite thermal jersey and a PI elite soft-shell jacket for warmth. While I also experienced a little sweating inside I didn't find that to be a problem (in fact it seems pretty normal to me). If you're like me, and you like high quality cycling kit, and are willing to accept something that might not be the most popular item, at a great price, you'll love this jersey. After wearing a couple of times I bought a second copy at the sales price, these will be my favorites between about 48-56 degrees.

Great Buy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thermal jersey is really amazing. It's true to its size, just make sure to measure yourself for the best result. I live in Las Vegas, so the winter here is not too extreme. The thermal capabilities of this jersey is just enough without overheating your body. I've been wearing this since the start of chilly morning season. It's very durable, I just wash and wear and it's good for another ride. Bottom line, I highly recommend it.

Not for me

Not really that impressed. Neck on this is too tall in the front for my liking. I understand that LG was looking for complete front neck coverage in the race position but it was just going to irritate my chin. This jersey also just didn't fit me as well as similar products from Castelli and Gore.

The rain maker

I bought this jacket after reading mostly positive reviews, but I have been very disappointed so far. I have been using the jacket when the temp is in the 40s or 50s outside on bike rides. It does the job blocking the wind and providing adequate warmth, but it is not breathable enough. All of the moisture seems to stay in the jacket to the point to where I'm soaking wet in a short time, regardless of the intensity of my ride. More ventilation or maybe pit zips would fix the problem, which I may have tailored in (If I could take it back I would). The bottom line is that if you sweat, even a little bit, you are going to be uncomfortable in this jacket. Wearing it is like biking in a wetsuit. So far the only solution is to take it off and freeze my a$$ off until I dry out.

Not recommended.

great for cold weather

The glaze was great on my winter train rides. I stayed comfortable with this jersey to the to the low 20's (Fahrenheit). With the extra height on the front of the neck initially i thought it might be bothersome. However I found it comfortable and great for keeping out the wind while riding in the drops.

Stops The Wind

This is a great wind blocking jersey. The temperature for my morning commutes is generally around 40 degrees and this thing stops the wind from creeping in. My rides home are closer to 50-60 degrees and I would not recommend wearing this jersey above 60 degrees as it then feels like you're wrapped in plastics trying to cut weight for your fight tomorrow. All in all, a solid jersey.

I'm 5'11"/180 lbs and got the XL. The fit is not uncomfortably tight and the sleeves and length are a tad long which I don't mind at all.

I'm wondering how the fit for this jersey...

I'm wondering how the fit for this jersey is. I just measured my chest, came up just shy of 42 inches... but it's not the fit in the chest I'm worried about. I'm wondering how this is going to fit over the beer gut I've aquired all winter. I normaly wear mens large with normal clothing so I'm inclined to go with an XL on this jersey, but I'm worried if I do that that the arms might be a bit long. Any suggestions?

Responded on

I'm 5'11" and weigh 180 (same situation with the beer gut) and I got the XL. The sleeves and length are a tad long for me (which I don't mind) and the fit in the belly is taught without being restricting. So, it depends on your height at this point. The XL will probably be comfortable but if you prefer the wrapped fit, you should probably consider the L.

Responded on

This is a pro-fit jersey. SCSI is correct; if you are concerned about the fit across the mid-section, you should go XL.

Great cool weather windblocking jersey!

I use this jersey down to about 40F and it is really comfortable and warm. The fits is pretty tight, but that's OK with me. Plenty long in the back and arms and the material is really stretchy. The windblock fabric on the front side of the chest and arms is great, making this my go-to jersey in cool windy conditions. You'll like it too!
