I got these jerseys in august 2016, and used them since then, now it’s Jan 2020 as I updated the review, along with my other jerseys, I switched type of jersey according to the weather, the Racer Braap jerseys I used when it was not very warm as in midsummer. I don’t have an exact number of which I have used each jersey.
I use size L for Alpine Stars jerseys, with Fox I use XL, Mavic Size L, Swix base layer I use Medium.
a bad video I was not able flip due to not using proper software:
No itching label at the neck or itching stitching.
Comfortable against the skin
Good fit. No issues with the jersey arms sliding up.The jersey fits well over Poc elbow pads or probably any other protective padding.
after some months of use the the label on the inside started peeling. but the label does not matter.
All of the jerseys eventually developed a tear at the upper chest lower throat area, in a upside down triangle, after few years of use, then eventually some the sleeve ends the stitching failed. but nothing that can’r easily be fixed with a sewing kit. All 4 jerseys developed a tear like this, but this one had a shorter tear, but just gentle movement using my hands I could make it grow, so with in a crash or a lot more use it would tear a lot more, so this has to be sewn. Repair instead of throw away clothes.
So far my most durable jersey has been Mavic Crossmax but it has a itchy label so I only use it in when I use a base layer. I think this is due to the type of weave it has, much tighter, no exposed thin threads, like on the Racer Braap jersey.
I can’t really recommend it due to bein too fragile, but the fit is great.
I can only recommend a jersey that won’t tear, and last many years, which this jersey does not. but of course you can keep using it and repair it, patch it up sew holes shut.
so if you don’t mind it’s not as durable as a jersey could be, and you want a jersey that had this amount of air flow through it, and not more or less, then you can go for it, but I would not recommend it.
There are no itching labels or big uncomfortable stitching or bumps.
As The name suggest air flows trough it, the jersey is thin, has a lot of venting holes all over it, it creates air flow, I can feel the air flowing trough keeping me cooler, similar to opening two windows in your home.
So this is one of the thinner jerseys I use on the summer.
Here you see me wearing the jersey
Body armour fits well underneath, I wear Poc VPD 2.0 Dh pads
The jersey fits nicely, the sleeves are long enough, it’s a true to size fit.
I will update this review later, so far I don’t have more to mention.
I use size L for Alpine Stars jerseys, with Fox I use XL, Mavic Size L, Swix base layer I use Medium
No itching labels or stitching
good fit works well with protectors underneath, the sleeves are long enough, good size of collar, the jersey stay in place how it should no sliding or twisting of the sleeves or any other part of the jersey
the collar is not too open,so it works well , it keeps the buff in place,I wear a Swix Race X base layer underneath & a buff/neck warmer(s), for those colder times where you don’t have to wear a jacket to stay warm, as the neck is one of the places I get cold fast, this is a big plus for me.
the pockets do not interfere with my Evoc backpack, the pockets are perfectly placed.
the pockets are so big you can have lunch or some energy bars in them, or 2 buffs or 2 sets of gloves.
easy to take things out or put in the pockets,because of the Velcro straps,which makes a secure pocket to keep stuff in,but I would not keep small or tiny stuff in it because they could come out, on rough rides, because the Velcro straps are only in the middle and not on the whole length.
Due to the way the jersey is woven, it’s more fragile than the Mavic CrossMax jersey, it has thinner thread and more exposed thread.
No pictures of this yet
the stitched part of the pocket rolls down on the Velcro strap some times, but this is not a big deal, there is more than enough Velcro to keep the pocket secure.
Not most durable option, fits great, I can’t really recommend it as it’s not perfect.
If you crash a lot, and need a durable jersey, POC Flow is a good choice.
if you want soft and super comfortable jersey i would go for the Trail jersey instead, biut for me this is OK.
confortable, the jersey is smoother inside than outside, so it will not be as unconfortable as you might think.
Very Durable,i crashed 2 tiomnmes ( on concrete stairs and on asphalt) with this jersey on and it still looks like new,but i assume if you crash very bad the POC logo might get some scrapes.
no itchy size label
i ordered wrong size but i kept it did not have time to deal with it so i just used it, but one size too small was wearable but not so comfy to put it on, but hopefully i can get some more of these in the right size
Conclusion, if you want durability, the POC flow jersey is a good choice.
