This SingleTrack Jersey is the short sleeved version of the Endura Women's SingleTrack Tank Top, although unlike the vest there's also a men's version. Both are the same dollar price on the US website but, oddly, on Endura’s UK website the men's RRP is £10 cheaper, at £49.99, than the women's version.

Design and specifications

The Endura Women's SingleTrack S/S jersey design is, unsurprisingly, very similar to that of the brand's SingleTrack Tank Top. It’s made from the same polyester/elastane mesh material (80% recycled), with a high-cut round neckline and longer back; there are the same extra-large perforations on the upper back; plus it has a small zipped valuables hip pocket, albeit with a smaller metal zip tag. Where it differs is it has short sleeves with a fine stretch mesh panel that extends right around, over the shoulder and underneath the arm, for freedom of movement and added breathability. According to Endura's website, the fabric also has an antibacterial treatment to "prevent odor build-up".

This is a perfectly good riding top that performs as you’d expect, in that the synthetic fabric is lightweight, wicking and dries very quickly. It is also very well made and designed, with lots of attention to detail, such as the softer material at the back of the collar and bonded, rather than stitched, hems at the back and the front of collar for a smoother profile with less chance of skin irritation. As with the tank top, I like the high neckline (for sun protection) and good length at the rear to keep your back well covered. The sleeves are fairly short though.

While the fit is described as “relaxed and feminine”, my size medium is notably tighter than the same size Tank Top and I found the arm holes a tiny bit tight, so (unless you’re slim) if you prefer a looser fit, I would size up. However, sizes only go up to XL (as opposed to XXL for the vest) so that’s limiting for more curvaceous women. 

Surprisingly, given they’re made from the same melange fabric, it doesn’t feel as soft as the tank top, which has a lovely silky quality. Perhaps this is down to the antibacterial treatment, which may wear off after a few more wash cycles. To be honest, I couldn’t notice any difference in whiffiness and would wash the top after each ride anyway. The tighter fit combined with the ‘stiffer’ fabric feel meant it’s not as super-comfortable as the tank top, which felt luxurious in comparison, but it seems a durable jersey that will survive bramble thorns and the odd crash.

This is a great all-round summer riding jersey, very well made with neat details and quality fabric. It is perfectly comfortable, although unless you’re super-slim you might want to size up to get more room around the arms. It can’t beat the superior comfort of Endura’s SingleTrack tank top though. And, full price, it is a lot of money compared to some other brands. If you’re petite enough to fit an XS, the Paprika color is currently heavily discounted on Endura’s UK website to £15.99, in which case I’d snap one up.
