While women’s-specific company Shredly’s line-up of gear may not be may not be huge, what they have is top-of-the line in every way and the Shredly Basic Jersey and All-In-One Jersey are no exception.
The Shredly Basic Jersey
Once again, Shredly finds the perfect balance between style and function with the Basic Jersey. While at first glance this top is a cycling jersey, it’s function goes well beyond the singletrack and knobby tires. The Basic Jersey is styled after everyone’s favorite v-neck, but with the wicking and quick-drying ability of the techiest of tech tees. The high-performance wicking comes from a technology called Dry Thru™ which is woven into the actual fabric rather than something the material is treated with. By being woven into the material, the wicking power lasts wash after wash with no special washing instructions or detergents, which is much more compatible with my on-the-go lifestyle.
The Basic Jersey has a super-flattering cut with raglan style sleeves and flattering side seams allowing the top to fit and flare in just the right places so that it didn’t appear boxy even on my short torso. The v-neck of the Basic Jersey also features a gathered neckline for a feminine touch without out being overly girly and still providing ample coverage for any activity.
While Shredly’s Basic Jersey is primarily a mountain biking top, I ended up wearing it for everything from long mountain bike rides, hiking, and backpacking, to intense days of cleaning up clutter in the garage. It truly is a multi-use top not just a cycling jersey. Through and through I could count on this top to keep me dry and comfortable, breathe well even when my back was loaded down with a pack, and look good wash after wash.
Shredly’s Basic Jersey has been a go-to for me since it arrived and it doesn’t show a bit of wear – no pulls, fraying, fading or change in fit. The Basic Jersey runs true to size, comes in basic black with three different accent stitch options which pairs perfectly with their patterned shorts. The Basic Jersey comes in sizes XS to XL for $45.
The All-In-One Jersey
Styled very similarly to the Basic Jersey, the All-In-One Jersey has all the same features, functionality and style of the Basic Jersey plus additional features making it just as suitable for multi-sport use.
The All-In-One Jersey features the same quick-drying breathable material as the Basic Jersey, but with additional mesh venting on the side panels allowing for even more airflow and breathability in the places you need it most when you’re really pushing it – the underarms and shoulders.
While the cut of the All-In-One Jersey is nearly identical for sizing and fit purposes the placement of seams is slightly different. The sleeves have a raglan style, but with an additional shoulder seam to accommodate the addition of the mesh material in the shoulder area. The mesh insets on the shoulders were appreciated for extra breathability around my pack straps, but I didn’t notice the seams which was great. The v-neck of the All-In-One jersey offers similar coverage to the Basic Jersey, but doesn’t feature the gathering around the neckline.
An additional feature that the All-In-One Jersey has is a small zippered pocket in the back to stow keys, a cell phone, a snack or other small items during your adventures. I was able to easily fit an iPhone and keys when I was heading out for a short ride or run that didn’t require a pack. The zippered pocket adds versatility, but I wouldn’t recommend putting anything in it if you also plan on wearing a pack because it may rub and isn’t easily accessible due to where it is placed.
Shredly’s All-In-One jersey hits the spot as another go-anywhere do anything performance top for women that demand a lot out of their gear.
The All-In-One jersey is currently available in turquoise and red in sizes XS through XL for $50.
Ladies, if you’re looking for a tech top that can replace your sport-specific tops and keep up with you no matter what adventure you’re getting after on a given day, do not overlook Shredly’s Basic and All-In-One Jersey’s.
