Given the fact that we fully expect to destroy our mountain gear, it makes sense to not spring for the top-end, gee-golly tech stuff that's just going to disappear in puff of dust and regret after one over-cooked corner. That's why Fox Racing's Ranger Jersey has such appeal: It's every bit as breathable, wicking, and lightweight as jerseys like the Flexair and Indicator, but — when it inevitably meets the trail — you'll be shedding tears over your broken derailleur instead of your shredded, triple-figure jersey.
Despite the accommodating price, the Ranger isn't a discount bin item. It's made with the same TruDri material as the more expensive jerseys mentioned above, it just lacks finishing details like lie-flat cuffs and laser-perforated speed holes. TruDri wicks, ventilates, and fights to keep you cool and dry on days when questionable decisions the night before lead to a late start on the trail.

From personal experience using many different brands over the years, Fox has consistently been the one brand that I prefer to use for comfort, and purpose driven usability. The only downside to them is cost and their inability to get sizing true.
The Ranger seems to have corrected this issue. I normally wear a large, and these Jersey's fit as such. The material feels great, wicks sweat away from my body very well and breathes very good too. It does take them a while to air dry once removed, but don't really care after the ride.
