Craft's Shield Jersey was made for the days when the skies are threatening and the temperature is fluctuating, but you still have to get on your bike. Layer it over your base layer or regular jersey and arm warmers to conserve heat and protect your core from wintery precipitation and icy wind gusts. Swedish born Craft knows cold weather riding, and it designed this jersey not only to block out wind and precipitation, but to move with you while you ride using four way stretch fabric. It includes a silicone gripper at the bottom hem to ensure it stays in place, with the inner collar lined with plush fleece to help protect your neck from windburn.If you begin to warm up during your ride, the Shield has strategically placed VentAir moisture wicking panels to facilitate airflow so you don't feel like you're wearing a plastic bag, as well as three jersey style pockets and one zippered pocket that keep nutrition and other ride essentials easily accessible. On those rare days when the sun comes out and you actually warm up, the Shield packs small enough to be stowed away in a jersey pocket for the journey home.
