Sombrio 2013 women’s MTB kit review: Birm Queen shorts, Pedigree jersey, Oso gloves

Sombrio make much of their North Shore heritage, and the relaxed, vintage baseball style cut of this jersey is as much about hanging out around the trails as it is about riding them.

Having said that, it is definitely designed for on-bike wear: hence the wicking and anti-bacterial properties of the silky, light weight stretch fabric, and the elongated back panel. It’s also free of scratchy labels, with the details printed onto the inside of the top instead.

This is a cold wash, non-iron best friend of a riding top that you can throw in your kit bag and wash and wear, ride after ride.

But there’s no getting away from the fact that this top is about looking good too. I love the feminine cut and the ¾ sleeves. Suitable for all year wear – so long as you have a merino base layer for winter!


– Technical fabrics
– Great fit and style


– Need to layer up for warmth
