When the mercury climbs up near triple digits, dressing for the occasion can be tricky. POC's Essential Road Light Jersey is here to make that decision a little more simple, with total breathability and featherweight feel.

To keep your essentials at hand, the jersey is equipped with three deep back pockets with room for a spare tube, multi-tool, and nutrition of your choice, and a separate zippered pocket for keeping valuable gadgets secure.

Zipper lets down a nice jersey
As others have mentioned, the material is really nice for hot weather. It breathes well and is very light. The arm and waist grippers work well. My issue with this jersey is the zipper. The engagement is weak and it tends to mis-engage if you're not very careful. It makes it almost impossible for me to re-zip on the go. Worse, the zipper pulls the jersey into humps on the front which flap and are lumpy. This makes an otherwise nice jersey a very awkward fit for me. I'm on the muscular side for a cyclist and have a relatively broad chest which might impact the fit but it's not overly tight, the zipper just causes bunching. If it had a chunkier zipper like Castelli I suspect it would lay flat and be a much better jersey. In the end I'll still wear it when it's very hot out and be OK, I just expected better of a POC product.

This light, breathable jersey is one of the nicest pieces of kit I own. The quality of fabrics and attention to detail is hard to ignore when you have this jersey in your hands. I'd highly recommend it for the summer months. Pair well with the Essential bib shorts. I'm very skinny and went with a size small which works well.

Great Visibility and Lightweight
Much like the name this jersey is a respectably light weight jersey and that ventilates very well on the hot summer days. This jersey is a little more relaxed fit so if you are into a little easier easy fitting road kit you will start here.

Light and breathable
Such a great jersey. Super breathable and light. Great for those hot days. Pockets are supportive for anything you carry on the ride. Great quality jersey.
