Capo's Bacio long sleeve jersey is identical to its short sleeve counterpart with the exception of long sleeves. Many clothing companies offer a long sleeve variant of popular short sleeve models, but always seem to add extra fleece layers or added material to boost the thermal value. What is unique with the Bacio long sleeve jersey is the fact it is the same weight and uses identical material selection as the short sleeve Bacio. This opens up the possibilities of layering and using the jersey more during the season.
Capo has taken the approach of focusing on women's apparel with the same effort and drive as they do with their men's collection. It is not an after though or a warmed over version from the men's range of clothing.
The body of the Bacio jersey is curved and paneled to fit a women's body shape while the sleeves are the proper length and not too long. The main panels of the jersey are made from Hydro Drop fabric. This materials supple, multi-directional stretch micro-fiber, containing an active hydrophilic treatment for rapid moisture transfer, aka: wicking. Capo's Silver fabric is utilized under the arms and down the sides of the jersey. Silver material is a quick-drying, dual knit micro-fiber with visible silver thread(hence the name of the fabric) positioned near the arm pit and side panel for increased breathability and effective anti-bacterial protection.
The look and feel of the jersey resonates somewhat of a soft race style. Meaning it has three subdued striping but the stripes are thin and only reside on one side of the jersey. The style lends itself to both the fashion orientated riders as well as the performance orientated cyclist.
