Aerostich revamps Windstopper Jersey

Aerostich has announced changes to its popular Gore-Tex Windstopper Jersey.  I have two of the original Jerseys and  find them to be indispensable component of my riding kit as a lightweight, versatile mid-layer garment that provides a lot of warmth without adding bulk.  Worn over a polypro or silk base layer and under my Roadcrafter or Darien jacket, the Windstopper Jersey will help keep me warm down to about 40F.  Adding an insulating layer (usually fleece) over the Windstopper has kept my core temp proper down as low as I dare ride, including my record low ride of 62 miles at 9F.   Folds up small enough to have along (or remove and stow) in case the weather changes. Changes with the new version include a nice zippered pocket on the upper left arm,  a hidden self-storage pocket, and a larger cut to facilitate easier on/off (I do find the neck on the original version on the tight side).  Wanna pretend you're Capt. Kirk? Get the tan jersey.

  • Comfort, style and keeps the breeze out.
  • Handy zippered left arm storage pocket.
  • Light padding at elbows.
  • Hidden, self-storing pocket.
  • Great as a layering piece or alone.
  • No stupid graphics. Anywhere.
