#Review | Ornot Charcoal Work Jersey

Hi all! 
How are your cycling day?
Today we want to show you a new review about an incredible brand of cycling wear, do you know Ornot?


Ornot Cycling Wear

Ornot Cycling Wear - Ready Ornot

Ornot is a cycling apparel company devoted to minimal design, domestic manufacturing, and having a good time on the bike. When they began in 2013, massive logos and team kits were the norm. They made it their goal to change the landscape by offering well designed cycling clothing while omitting excessive branding. 


All Ornot gear is designed in San Francisco and manufactured throughout the USA. They work closely with their factories to ensure a quality product and a responsible manufacturing process. Domestic production is important to them, and sometimes that means it costs more - but they think it’s the right thing to do. 

Actually, they have created their new website for Europe too https://uk.ornotbike.com/ 

Ornot Charcoal Work Jersey

Today we start a series of product review, starting with the Ornot Charcoal Work Jersey.



First you feel with the Ornot wear is quality, lightweight products, really well finished, you get what you pay, this products are really good. As you can see in the pictures, the desigh is really clean, minimal, with geometric pattern and elements. 

Here you can see their description in their web:
Whether your daily grind involves gravel watts or road intervals, we promise you’ll look good and feel even better in one of our new Work Jerseys. At the core is an American milled micromesh fabric with great breathability and resilience. The cut is an updated nod to the classics utilizing set-in sleeves unlocking a massive style bonus. Our intention for the Work Jersey is two fold; create a jersey making all cyclists look good as well as feel good. Time to put in some work, Ornot! 

We can confirm what they say, this jersey is a "look good". We have tested it some days in Spain, with a hot weather, at the begining you think: Oh my god, with this black/grey color, I will ride really hot!... but, no! It has an incredible breathability, really fresh! In other way, I, "the tester", am not thin, about 90 kg, and with this jersey I felt really confortable, the fabric feels better than other jerseys.
