Reviewed: Velocio Origami Ultralight women’s jersey
So lightweight you can almost see through it, Velocio’s Origami jersey is ideal for the hottest of rides. This is the top for summer tailwind climbs up scorching canyon roads when there is no cloud cover, no tree cover, and the pavement could fry an egg.
Perforations throughout the jersey’s fabric provide significant airflow when pedaling down the road. This superb breathability is combined with the feathery-light stretch polyester fabric (weighing in at just under 100 grams) for a minimalistic yet effective summer jersey.
The Origami jersey has a more relaxed fit than Velocio’s classic kits and we opted for one step down in size to get the tighter, racer-cut fit that we love. By sizing down, the jersey’s arms were tighter, in a good way, instead of flapping around in the wind. Maybe we’ll want that wind-flapping feeling when the temperatures heat up this summer, but so far, the long, slim sleeves are perfect.
