Load up and go.
Time trialists should look elsewhere, but cyclists who are in it for the long haul should check out the Louis Garneau Cargo Men's Short-Sleeve Jersey. It sets the focus squarely on preparation, with eight pockets—two at the chest, two on the side, three in the back, and one for a phone—so you'll be able to carry all the tubes, gels, and other essentials you need on a long ride, all without the need for a bag of any type.
The Cargo might not be focused on pure speed, but that doesn't mean it isn't fast. The front panel is made from Skin Pro, a smooth, silky fabric that lets the air slip over it while moving moisture from your skin to the outer layer of the jersey, where it can evaporate quickly. On the sides, Highlander Mesh increase the jersey's wicking capability, while CB Carbon Ion fabric at the back is treated with Coldblack, which reflects UV rays and actually keeps the temperature down, so you don't overheat when you're out for the long haul.

Pockets, Pockets, Pockets
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: extra large
Still winter here, so haven't worn the jersey on a ride. Have tried it on (XL), and it fits well. All the pockets seem well placed. It's what I expected from LG. Look forward to wearing it this summer.
What a great jersey!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Just awesome! Love all the pockets which seem to be placed in all the right places. The Large size fits true, I'm 6'3" 190 lbs 34" waist and expected it to be tight enough but not too tight. It's perfect, tight but comfy. I feel like it looks even better in person than in pics, the orange on the sleeves and zipper matches my Sidi Cape shoes perfectly. And it feels great!
