Summer doesn't have to mean skin.
Picture the perfect summer ride: Long miles, ice cream pit stops, maybe a mid-ride dip in the ocean or local swimming hole. Sounds dreamy, right? This summer, keep those summer memories limited to icy cold sweet treats and late night sunsets: not crispy skin and new tan lines (or worse, sunburn!).
The Summerweight Long Sleeve is super light, silky against the skin, and provides weightless sun protection in UPF 50 to block the sun's harmful rays. It feels barely there but doesn't skimp on technical features like three full-sized pockets and added vents to aid in moisture wicking and camouflage sweat.
For this dreamy, opalescent palm print we teamed up with Alex Proba, creator of the "Hers - Poster A Day" Series and collector of stories about life-changing women.
- Ultra lightweight fabric allows the breeze to pass right through.
- UPF 50+ protects your skin from sun damage.
- 3 full sized back pockets.
- Side zip, moisture resistant, pocket for your keys and wallet.
- Top quality, self-locking zippers for a great fit.
Size & Fit
- UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. It's similar to the SPF rating used in sunscreen.
- UPF Rating of 50+ means that less than 2.5% of ultraviolet rays can pass through the fabric.
- Because the UPF rating comes from the tight weave of the fabric, its effectiveness won't diminish with time.
Tired of greyed or stained arm coolers ruining the look of your kit? The Long Sleeve Jersey is your answer. Rock your look and protect your skin at the same time. I get compliments every time I wear this jersey. The print and colors are fabulous and the fit is perfect. It's a must have in the sun belt. I am so surprised other companies haven't figured out there is a market for a summer-weight long sleevse. Even if they do, it won't look or fit like a Machines. Worth the splurge.
I wanted to wear my jersey outside a couple times and get a feel for it before I put up a review, but after I crashed pretty spectacularly on my first outdoor ride of the season, I knew I would be putting up a review sooner. I don’t know what this jersey material is, but it’s out of this world! I went over the handlebars, skidded on the pavement, and managed to tear a hole in my (non-MFF) tights, but my jersey was completely unscathed! It doesn’t have even a single thread pull!!! I sustained some superficial road rash underneath the jersey, but I would hate to imagine how bad the damage would have been if I hadn’t been wearing this long sleeve made of magic fabric? Even the blood stains from when I wiped my road torn hands (wear your gloves people) came out of the fabric right away. It fits amazingly, has enough stretch to fit my extra thermal layer underneath for these early Canadian spring rides, has great coverage, and I’ve had so many compliments on the pattern. This jersey was well worth the cost of importing to Canada, and I’m really excited that Machines is now available in my local bike shop!
Great jersey. Fits great, fitted exactly how the fit guide said it would. Loving the sun protection and I haven’t been too hot yet.
I have two of MFF long sleeve jerseys -- the Midnight Palm and the Jaded Rose.
I love them both, though I especially adore the print of the latter since I am a sucker for both teal and florals. The pattern of the Rose is super-pretty and feminine.
The fabric is extremely lightweight, cool and smooth to the touch, even a bit slick.
This style is very flattering, though I found it a bit snug and decided to size up. (At a little under 5'3" and 112 pounds, with a modest bust and a 26" waist, I thought the XS would work best. It turned out that I exchanged it for the Small since I wanted the option of wearing a tight tank underneath. If I were a racer, or thinking only of appearance, I would have stuck with the XS, but for me comfort is everything.)
Overall, I would highly recommend this item and hope that MFF releases even more prints in this long-sleeve.
I was so looking forward to receiving this jersey and sleeves as I am a fair skinned redhead and burn easily. Unfortunately, even after sending my measurements to you and being recommended a size (which I ordered) it was too small and sleeves and sleeves of jersey were too tight.
Given the exchange rate with the Australian dollar and shipping costs to return airfreight to be within the 30 days for refund, it has been a disappointing and very expensive foray into online shopping.
Have you given thought to a distributor in Australia? We have hot, hot summers and no one offers long sleeve jerseys here.
Sorry to post a negative review - I would prefer to give you this feedback privately. Your products are wonderful, your staff very responsive and helpful.
