Get ready for winter with these long sleeve cycling jerseys
A long sleeve cycling jersey is a must for any cyclist when the weather starts to get colder. Often lined with a Roubaix-style fleece material that adds an extra layer to keep you warm, they are reasonably wind and water resistant. If you’re looking for something to keep wind and rain completely at bay then you’ll want to check out our guide to winter cycling jackets.
During Autumn you can pair up with a base layer and throughout winter, wear a jacket on top for more protection from the elements. They are often designed with low light riding in mind with reflective detailing and bright high-visibility colours to help you be seen.

The previous version of this jacket was called the Gabba Long Sleeve Jacket, but we’re going back to reserving the Gabba name for the original Gabba short-sleeve jersey/jacket.
