The Invani men's summer jersey is a hot-weather garment boasting a highly breathable fabric and a body-hugging fit. It's also got a pretty unique trick up its sleeve - it's reversible, which provides a frugal, two-in-one solution for those looking at maximising wardrobe space. Despite the cost-saving rhetoric, the jersey is as premium in look, feel and fit as any of its rivals and has become one of my favourite go-to options for both outdoor and indoor riding. But how does it stack up against the current crop of the best cycling jerseys?
Aesthetics and specifications
Minimalism is a common theme among Invani's range of cycling clothing and the men's summer jersey isn't any different. That's not a bad thing of course as this approach means the flat panels of colour make it easier to match with bib shorts and this notion can be pushed even further owing to its reversible configuration. Unlike Invani's six-colour slim-fit reversible line, the jersey pictured here is only available in black/blue colour combination.
This specific jersey takes on a slightly different tack in terms of design compared to its siblings - particularly along the sleeves where the Invani logo motif is stamped across both sides of the jersey. It looks pretty sleek and adds a level of intricacy we haven't yet seen before from the brand. This has also helped Invani separate both designs - blue from black - to provide a genuine second option: the reversible side is plain in design with an Invani wordmark logo on the left sleeve.
