As part of its Vega Acquazero water-repellent range of winter clothing, Santini have a long sleeve jersey to match its bib tight counterpart. We were big fans of the tights and the Vega Acquazero long sleeve jersey is the perfect accompaniment.
If you’ve read our review of the Vega Acquazero bib tights, you’ll know we were impressed with their comfort and ability to keep you warm despite a lack of thickness to the overall material. While water resistance is clearly one of the main features, it proved itself capable in most damp situations, if not totally unflummoxed by heavy downpours.
Santini have used the same treatment on the long sleeve jersey, with very similar results. The fleece lining helps to boost comfort and warmth, while the Acquazero treatment makes a decent fist of the job of protecting you from the elements, and can withstand repeated washes effectively.
