Most jersey manufacturers put a lot of stock in purely synthetic fabrics, given their ability to manage moisture, stretch well, and take on colorful patterns. We won't argue that synthetics aren't useful, but why would you spend top dollar for a petroleum based jersey when a wool blend option like the Nalini Mentore Men's Jersey does all the same things, with the naturally cool and comfortable properties wool provides'Merino wool is a pretty amazing fiber. It's naturally antimicrobial, so you can virtually wear it forever without worrying about stinking up the road, and manages moisture incredibly efficiently, so you'll stay dry even on the hottest days. This merinopoly blend is cool in warm weather and warm in cold weather, and will stay warm even if it gets wet, so you can wear the Mentore in almost any weather without worrying that you might not be dressed correctly. Nalini dressed the Mentore up with all the standard design features, like three stretchy back pockets, a full front zipper, and a silicone gripper at the hem to keep the jersey from riding up. The jersey also has an additional rear zippered pocket for items you can't afford to lose, and the polka dot pattern is subtle enough to stand out without being obtrusive.
