Dakine have long been synonymous with stylish high quality products in the MTB world and the Vectra Jersey is no different. Available as a short sleeve and the ¾ length sleeve the cut is generous and defined as “freeride fit”. This means it’s for all you gravity hunters out there! The fabric and pattern is integrated and stitched and we loved the subtle detailing on this jersey. It’s a heavier weight 220g 100% quick-dry polyester with Microban® antibacterial technology.

It’s worth noting some lighter weight jersey’s can snag on trees and get damaged when you crash, however the Dakine material is definitely tougher. On the inside there is a goggle/glasses wipe which is really handy and a neat addition.

We’re longstanding fans of the Dakine gear and have been for years. This jersey, and in fact all their jerseys as we have had a few, is great and we highly recommend it.

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
