Whether spring riding conditions hang on for longer than they do in most of the country for you, or you're planning a trip to ride in an area where the weather can change from warm to inhospitable in a matter of minutes, Etxeondo's WS Team Edition All Weather Men's Jersey Kit would make a sound investment for your spring or fall training rides. The kit includes a Windstopper jersey and matching arm warmers, and the jersey is the same model that Etxeondo uses to outfit Team Giant-Alpecin riders when they train in inclement weather. It employs a pro-worthy, next-to-skin fit and breathable Windstopper construction that skillfully handles wind, rain, sleet, and sudden changes in weather that you may face while riding through the mountains in the spring.
The adjective understated could be applied to most Etxeondo kit, as the brand never burdens its garments with too many elements of pointless embellishment. That tendency reassures us that the details that do surface are worth their weight in functionality. In the case of the WS Team Edition, this includes three well-placed holes below each of the rear pockets that allow water to drain out of the jersey faster than it would otherwise.
A large reflective strip, also on the back of the jersey, improves your visibility in the overcast conditions that tend to accompany cold, wet weather, and the soft, high collar helps block rain and wind while retaining heat. As you're stretched out in the saddle, the jersey's extended back hem will work to block rooster tails and the full-length zipper and matching arm warmers, also made with Windstopper, give you the flexibility to add or take away insulation as the weather changes throughout a ride.
