I tried it out the products on a 90 km ride and I’d like to give you my first impressions about them.
Starting with the nice packaging, you already notice the quality of this product is really high (packaging is extremely important). I really liked the matte zip bags, its smooth texture and the cool text on it.
The jersey is too comfortable, it sticks to the body and fits really nice, clothing lets you feel cooled at all times. Sleeves are tight and gives you a nice looking. No complains about comfort whatsoever. Pockets are big enough to save pretty much everything you need but I would have liked it to have two more small side pockets (oblique muscle side). The back pocket’s zipper was a bit weird to me since it is a vertical zipper and sometimes when I was saving coins they tended to fall down before closing it. A key component of the jersey was the reflective pieces which increase visibility at night. Front zipper looked really cool with its Monton logo “head”.
Talking of the socks, I’ve never have had those kind of socks (with half lycra clothing) and I was really impressed. They look gorgeous, so comfortable but tend to fall down a little bit.
I'm venturing out a bit this year & trying out some new kits on my training rides in search of Jerseys & Bibs made of materials that will keep me cool in the extreme heat of the TX summer & have details that help improve my visibility or add functionality.
I discovered Monton Sports Official Cycling Kits last year when I guest rode for Team Asahi Muur Zero at Joe MartinStage Race and loved the fit & feel of their Jerseys, so was thrilled to find that they not only make Custom Kits for teams, but also sell individual Jerseys & Bibs! I love the slimming design of this Women's Pro Jersey, & the Persia Fabric felt silky soft against my skin while remaining extraordinarily light-weight & breathable, even when drenched in sweat.
~The underarm panels are made of a sheer mesh material providing increased ventilation
~The V-shaped neckline prevents feeling constricted & is made of an incredibly soft material
~There is a 4th zippered pocket overlaying one of the back pockets, lined with a waterproof material & great for securing IDs, CCs, & Cash
~There is Reflective Piping under the center rear pocket which increases visibility during night rides.
The socks pictured are also sold by Monton (in a variety of hi-vis colors) for <$5. They're super soft & comfy & great for rides in the spring, fall, & winter, but perhaps just a tad thick for mid-summer rides in TX if you're a heavy sweater like me
Dimension Fleece Cycling Jersey Review First impressions after a ride yesterday, temperature was 2 celcius with a bit of windchill (feel like -2). I really like this jersey. It's nice colorful and has a pretty interesting design. Finish overall is quality.
The good: I wore another jersey underneath this, and it was just about right. The fit on this is pretty much spot on. I first thought I would want some additional room, but there was a lot of stretch - the side panels and inside of the arms are a slightly thinner but stretchier lycra (not fleeced). The placement of these is pretty much perfect. Allowing some moisture/ heat to escape, the rest of the arms,and front panel made of a fleeced material to keep warm against some wind chill. The waist gripper used is really nice. Just enough stretch and grip to keep in in place. I don't recall it moving during the ride, and issue that can occur with many jerseys. I really liked the choice of material and finish on the cuffs, and the arm length is perfect for me. The same material as used on the side panels, which kept it tight to allow gloves to fit over and keep the chill out. THe back pockets are a good size, I find with many jerseys it can be difficult to get things in when you are wearing the article, but there was just enough room here to get things in and out with ease. Also, they were not too high up on the jersey, which can make it a challenge to access while riding. Finally, I really like your choice of zipper with a fixed plastic piece making it easy to use when wearing gloves.
The bad: My only issue was with the neck collar. For me, I would have liked this to be at least 1.5 times higher (it is a winter jersey). Also a bit snugger around the neck as well.
