Course Wind Pro Long-Sleeve Jersey - Women's by Louis Garneau
At this point, every major manufacturer has an anti-weather race jersey like Louis Garneau's Course Wind Pro LS Jersey for Women; however, few brands make women-specific, race-fit, wind- and water-resistant kit look this good. Aesthetics aside for now, the jersey earns its place as the foul-weather spear tip in any cycling arsenal with a blend of Light Wind Pro and ThermaSoft 180 materials, the combination of which ensures a slim fit that fends off the elements while maintaining a level of breathability that most other jerseys in this category can't match.

That 15% gap between Light Wind Pro and typical fleece is alleviated by, well, a typical fleece. Supporting panels of LG's ThermaSoft 180 add a dose of breathability to locations that aren't typically compromised by wind and rain while in the saddle--spots like the underarms and side panels. ThermaSoft 180's weave isn't as tight as Light Wind Pro, so it allows more internal moisture to escape and adds accommodating flex to the jersey's fit. It's also finished with a hydrophilic treatment, which further enhances its abili...
