Howies Group Tee women’s cycling t-shirt review

Fancy a technical top for riding in that looks casual and flattering too? Then check out the Group Tee from Howies.

Is it possible to get over-excited by a t-shirt? I didn’t really think so, but the Howies Group-Tee is no ordinary t-shirt!

Firstly, the fabric is delightfully soft next to the skin, it’s lightweight, wicks away sweat efficiently and dries in super fast time. See, I told you it wasn’t ordinary!

Okay, so it’s not your standard cycling jersey, if that’s what you’re looking for then turn away now. There are no pockets on the rear or zip up the front. This is refreshing and I’ve used the Group Tee for much more than riding my bike, it doubles up as a running top, is perfect for travelling and I’ve even played tennis in it – well you have to do some cross training!

You can ride to work, the shops, pub, hang out with mates and look good without stinking of sweat or looking like a cycle geek. We suggest you get a saddle-bag if you need to carry stuff while on your bike because it’s delightfully refreshing not having things stuffed in your back pockets.

The fit is loose with a long rear, and all in all it’s very flattering for women’s curves. The scoop neckline isn’t revealing when bent over on the bike, which is always good. Inside the neck and around the hem is a divine bike print, a subtle way of showing your love of all things two-wheeled. If you’re reading this howies – please do more with the print and stick it on the outside too!

The only downside I can think of is the Group Tee is available only in white – not great for mucky pups like me, but so far it’s washed up well!
