Everyone treats summer like end-all, be-all of mountain biking, but really, is there anything better than riding on grippy packed mud in early spring or cruising over leaf-strew trails on a crisp autumn day? Enjoy those cold-weather rides more in the comfort of the Sweet Protection Men's Badlands Merino Jersey. Its merino wool fabric is warm, yet impressively lightweight, and offers a plush feel for all-day comfort. Merino wool's breathability means it keep you warm when you're zipping downhill, yet prevents you from overheating on tough ascents. Raglan sleeves won't hold you back on technical trails, and the longer cut in the back means you won't develop plumber's syndrome when you're hunched over the handlebars.
- Merino wool is soft, warm, regulates temperature
- Cut longer in the back for added coverage
- Raglan sleeves allow better mobility

Lightweight Merino at its Best
I'm typically a synthetic jersey kinda guy but figured I'd give Merino another chance. I tend to run hot and our Utah summers run even hotter which has kept me away from Merino in the past. This jersey is so soft and lightweight that it doesn't feel warmer than my standard synthetic jersey, and actually kicks butt on 80+ degree days. If you are looking for a comfortable Merino jersey that wont break the bank, the Badlands Jersey is for you!

Classic, plain style. Very comfortable. Just a touch long- but not enough to change my rating. I'll see how it holds up, but so far I really like this piece.

Love riding this shirt - Merino is the best!
