This is a review of two of my favorite, go-to women’s cycling jerseys – these two win top marks for style, comfort and durability. They are the Sugoi Women’s Ruby Jersey and the Pearl Izumi Women’s Rev Jersey.
I give Pearl Izumi high praise for their Women’s Rev Jersey.
Pearl Izumi Women’s Rev Jersey is one of the only women’s cycling jerseys that I have found NOT to be form fitting, which has the effect of making me look like a sausage. The Pearl Izumi Women’s Rev Jersey is tapered at the waist but only skims the body – as opposed to sticking like glue.

I like the two-tone design and the “faux-hint” of layering, with the white bit at the hem. I find the weight of this women’s cycling jersey to be comfortable for riding from spring into fall, and I have worn it into winter with an extra layer underneath. The zippered front makes it easy to vary your temperature as you ride. I am usually zipped tight in the morning and then slowly drop the zipper as I ride. The color of the jersey is beautiful; as you all know I am all about the fashion. There is a good sized pocket in the side with an invisible zipper which helps keep the lines clean.
My other go-to women’s cycling jersey is my Sugoi Women’s Ruby Jersey which, coincidentally, is also pink. I’m not usually a “pink” person but these shades flatter any skin tone. I wear this jersey in warm weather only because the fabric is light weight and the sleeves are slightly shorter. Like the Pearl Izumi Women’s Rev Jersey, the styling is tapered, skimming the body.
Of the two jerseys, the Sugoi is a little less athletic looking so I usually wear this if I know we will stop for a snack or a glass of wine. The design is slightly mandarin inspired with a small stand-up color, and the white piping on the neck and sleeves is really eye-catching. My only complaint is a minor one, that there is only one pocket and it is pretty small, but it also has an invisible zipper so that the lines are clean.
Both of these women’s cycling jerseys are good value for money, fashionable and extremely durable. I am pretty rough with my clothes, yet both these jerseys have survived two seasons and are still going strong. I recommend both jerseys, the Pearl Izumi as a comfortable riding jersey, and the Sugoi for when you want to be a little more fashionable and less “ridey.”
