Two Minute Gear Review – Mons Royal Wool Women’s Enduro VT Jersey

This women’s wool cycling jersey was stellar on it’s first hot ‘n sweaty ride: a new section of the Great Divide Trail in Wyoming that climbs up to Sublette Pass.  We descended in the near-dark and the temp dropped. Did I get icky clammy cold?  Nope, because that’s the beauty of wool ~ it keeps you warm even when damp.
