DBX 5.0 All Mountain Long-Sleeve Jersey
If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that slogging uphill in a sweaty jersey isn't a great way to start off your trail ride. Eliminating this sweat-soaked feel, the Leatt 5.0 All Mountain DBX Jersey employs the breathable, moisture-wicking feel of lightweight Mihrao fabric. It's reinforced with a brush guard along the elbows for scratch-resistance and optimal integration with elbow pads for when you rip down notoriously technical trails. Plus, a WindBlock panel on the front keeps your core comfortable on high-speed descents.
Tailored for all-mountain rides, it slides nicely underneath body armor and neck braces without causing undue irritation or restricting motion. The chest, arms, and side panels benefit from a DWR finish, which repels flinging dirt and trail splashes when you're enjoying tacky dirt after a recent rain. Bonded seams increase overall comfort by eliminating the scratchiness inherent to traditional seams. There's even a silicone-lined waist that prevents it from riding up when you're aggressively charging downhill and flying off side-hits scattered alongside the trail.

- Q & A
A little too tapered
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I typically wear a medium, but Leatt jerseys tend to run on the smaller side in my experience, so I ordered a large. Eventhough this is a quality jersey, it's too tapered at the bottom...like it's supposed to be tucked into motoX pants. At $75 I need a jersey that I'm gonna be 100% fine with.
