Mens Alpine Merino Blend Long Sleeve Jersey (Charcoal Melange/Vulpine Green)

Size Guide

Incredibly comfortable long-sleeved distance riding jersey, cut from soft, odourless merino wool. A Vulpine classic.

The Alpine became an instant classic when it launched, as we displayed our new way of thinking about comfort and style in a 3-pocket jersey. We've provided you with merino wool for incredible softness, odour resistance and multi-condition riding, blended with polyester for long term durability.

Merino wool reacts to the ambient conditions, cooling when it's hot, warming when cold, and even pulling water off your skin in the rain, so you feel far more comfortable. As a natural fabric, merino also looks less out of place in a social setting, making it subtle for lunch stops. We've given you a full length YKK zip for adaptability and convenience, and added our classic leather pull, easily gripped with gloves or at speed. We've designed the rear pockets for great practicality, and added subtle reflective features. Discover why this is the perfect distance cycling jersey.

Usual great quality - be wary of sizing

Great product - quality spot on, look understated and no in your face logos. Cant fault performance spring/ autumn on it own and a winter base layer. No changes after washing. I would caution on sizing, I have bought a my usual large but it is too small - either diet to fit or fork out for a XL

Thank you for the review, and the useful sizing feedback, Alastair!

We're pleased to hear that you're impressed with the jersey, although we are sorry to hear that the size wasn't quite right. Your feedback is valuable to us, and to our customers reading this.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to get in touch.

Best wishes,

Great jersey - warm, but not too sweaty

I always struggled to find a jersey that keeps me warm on the downhill, even after working up a sweat on the hills. This is it!

Thank you for the review, Tom! It's great to hear you've found the jersey you we're searching for! It sounds like it has really improved your riding experience, for which we are resoundingly pleased. We're always thrilled to know our products are having a positive impact on our customers.

Typically great Vulpine product

These are my 3rd and 4th Alpine Merino tops. I love them.

The medium fit is perfect for me, I'm 179 cm (5' 11"), 71 kgs, with long arms. The arm length is perfect for me, perhaps slightly snug, and I have slim arms, someone a bit chunkier might find them a bit too snug.

Thanks for the great review, Michael! It's wonderful to hear that you're a big fan of our Alpine Jerseys! Thank you for your feedback about the sleeves. The fabric incorporates a bit of stretch to accommodate a wide range of body types, but we're always looking for ways to improve our products, for which your input is really valuable.

Please feel free to get in touch if you ever have any questions or require assistance.

Kind regards,

Hubby loves this Jersey

Bought this for my husband. He cannot tolerate the sun so need a lightweight jersey for the warmer months and he absolutely loves it. My husband is long in the back and the jersey length allows for this.

Thank you, Kathleen, for sharing your review!

We're happy to hear that your husband is pleased with his new Jersey. It's great to hear that it provides adequate protection against the sun during the warmer months.

We appreciate your feedback! If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please feel free to reach out.

Warm regards,
