Kit designs are trending toward simplicity, yet so many manufacturers assume that everyone wants to ride plain black jerseys and shorts. Ornot has struck a balance between understated and colorful with its Blue jersey. Simple graphics meet a race-inspired fit that’s not too snug — that’s a good combo all around.

Like Ornot’s other offerings, the Blue jersey is made in California from a soft micro poly fabric that vents well, especially in hot weather. Ornot eschews elastic fittings in favor of wide, comfortable arm bands that help keep the jersey in place.

While this jersey doesn’t feel like a racer’s jersey — it’s not quite tight enough for that — it still offers a comfortably snug fit that won’t leave you feeling strangled by the top of the climb.

Simplicity seemed to be the goal, and Ornot achieved that. There are really no fancy accessories here, just your standard three pockets in the rear and full-zip front. Ornot makes no apologies for this simplicity, and it certainly made this jersey an easy one to reach for on daily rides.

The price tag is a bit steep for a jersey without the bells and whistles, but the simple aesthetic and comfortable fit might be worth it.
