The Good: TLD quality, breathable, light, great colors
The Bad: None so far
So this jersey won’t give you Cam Zink level skills to huck 360s off massive drops but it will definitely make you look cool. The jersey, like all TLD gear is light, breathable and durable. I don’t know when the ¾ length sleeve jersey fad started but it seems to have stuck with the MTB scene as most bike jersey companies now make ¾ sleeve jerseys. The cool thing about the Ruckus jersey is that it comes in a couple different colors, I have the purple/orange one and although it’s a bit bright it doesn’t come off as too flashy or loud as some of the other color explosion jerseys. The TLD logo is laser etched in a couple of spots, meaning that it should stay on and not wash/wear off anytime soon.
The jersey also offers a hidden zippered stash pocket on the side, it’s actually a fairly decent sized pocket but kind of in a weird spot. I tried to ride with my iphone in it but did notice that it was bouncing around quite a bit. Plus it’s kind of in a vulnerable spot on the side in case of a crash whatever you have in there has a high risk of getting smashed. If you don’t mind a little bit of bouncing and potential risk of breaking this would be a good pocket for mp3 player.
Overall I am really happy with this jersey, its breathable, light and loose and gives you a bit of style when you’re getting rowdy on the trails.
