When cool weather comes around the Men's Alpine Jersey is a essential piece to keep you comfortable on the bike.
We developed the Alpine Jersey to be worn alone for cooler weather or under a jacket for freezing temperatures.
Ardénte is a 235 gram winter weight tetra-channel technical fabric that accelerates moisture-transfer. Ultra-soft with a slight interior loft makes Ardénte ideal for fall and spring garments. This is a supple, breathable and lightweight and fabric that enables athletic activities in 40-70°F conditions.

Perfect for 40-50 degree rides. Even lower temps if you have a good long sleeve base layer. Extremely comfortable and the medium fits me (5'11",185lbs) perfect. Love jerseys with small zip pockets as this one has so the car key don't wander away on a bumpy decent.

This is a high quality garment. It is Functional, and It fits like it was custom made for me.

I wore this jersey out of the bag on a mid 50 degree day. It was perfect for the temperature and the fit was excellent. Very comfortable material. I never felt too hot or cold during a cool 20 mile, hilly and technical ride.

I am 5'10", 170 pounds and the shirt fits perfectly. Snug but not tight with sleeves that would be 34" on a dress shirt so fairly long. The material is medium weight half way between a normal jersey and a cycling coat.

This is another great Pactimo jersey in most respects. I have had several other brands of the "cool weather" jerseys over the years... think a light fleece lining on a regular jersey. Great to layer with a baselayer under and a jacket over for "cold" weather as well. This one is as good as most and a lot better than some.
But... the sleeves are not as long as Pactimo's other summer-weight LS jerseys and the cuffs have an odd "flare" to them rather than elastic. I realize you have to allow for hands to slip through, but I'm not sure this was the best approach... does let a tiny "breeze" in occasionally.
Otherwise, as always, watch out on sizing. When Pactimo says “form fit” they mean it. I like them that way but they are close to painted on so you may want to size up if you are muscular or like any “looseness” in your fit.
I agree with Aaro's review that the pockets are a tad bit shallow and cramped when layers start coming off... but plenty functional. A bit deeper pockets, longer sleeve and elastic rather than flare and you'd have another 5 Star jersey from Pactimo.

Indeed the perfect garment for that 40-70 degree range, with a tech tee underneath. Nice fit in the large, without being too tight or loose. You could add a thicker layer underneath or a vest on top so easily. Very versatile. My quibbles: pockets are nicely reinforced and I like the zipper key/phone pocket, but they should really be deeper for a jersey like this...I often take off extra layers, booties, etc as weather warms during long weekend rides. Sleeves could be an inch longer for a cool weather jersey. The Pactimo jacket HAS those sleeves!

Wore Alpine Jersey on a day when the temperature was in the 40s and a 20 MPH North East Wind, it was layered on top of a tech tee shirt and I felt warm and comfotable throughout the ride, which says a lot for Buffalo NY. Liked the pockets as they allowed me to store my car keys and cell phone. Nice product, well priced, a value and a bargin!

The Alpine jersey is perfect to get me through the entire calendar year of cycling in Boise. It's just the right amount for cool October and November rides and those early season spring rides. Add a jacket and I am on the road in the dead of winter.
