    “Jett Hornet jersey”

    The Good: solid construction

    The Bad: thicker fabric can get a bit hot

    Overall Review:

    I've been using Jett's Hornet jersey on and off for the past two years and have found it to be a keeper. Each piece of clothing has it's own characteristics, not that they are good or bad in and of themselves.  This jersey is made of a somewhat thicker fabric with perforated mesh holes to aid in breathability. The fabric is stitched well and has survived a couple of my minor tumbles and shown only minor damage.  A couple of snags have appeared over the years and this could be due to scraping rocks or even a dreaded velcro scrape. 

    Since it is a little heavier duty than many of the other jerseys I have, I often wear it on cooler days in the early spring and late fall with a layer underneath to add warmth.  In the summer I have worn it a couple of times while riding the resorts (higher elevation and cooler temperatures) and since the fit is comfortably but not overly baggy, I can sneak some protective pads underneath.

    The hornet jersey is devoid of fancy features with the exception of some small side pockets that zip close and can hold keys, some cash or maybe a small snack.  Personally I have never used them and the thought of landing on keys right under the ribs doesn't sound too appealing to me. Jett has made this in short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve lengths. Styling is personal but I like the look of it fairly well.
