If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am absolutely in love with everything from Tough Chik.
If you are a new reader, you are probably wondering "what is Tough Chik?" so let me introduce you --

Shannon, the owner, designer and Captainn Awesome of Tough Chik just finished up an epic 7 day cycling tour from San Francisco to Los Angeles - The Aids Lifecycle. Shannon also raised over $3,000 for this event so this is the perfect time to celebrate one BADA$$ Tough Chik (Shannon, of course!) with a review (and giveaway) from Tough Chik's cycling line!!
I got the Aqua Tough Chik cycling jersey a while ago and I could not wait until the Maine winter was gone so I could get out and ride in this jersey.
2011 Tough Chik Aqua Cycling Jersey
•Women's specific cut
•Technical wicking fabric
•Form fitting for competitive riding (they run small so consider ordering a size up)
•¾ Hidden Zipper
•3 large back pockets
My first ride out with my TC jersey was a cold Spring day in Maine (sorry, no pictures of this adventure). I was able to layer it with a UA cold weather top and still managed to be functional while looking cute! But, lucky for me the weather has warmed and this is my go to cycling jersey for many reasons.
I wore it out on my first big group ride two weeks ago and lots of the ladies just loved it~it was certainly an ice breaker.
It's comfortable. Yes, it is a race cut and while I normally wear a size medium in most tops, I did opt for a large in this one. It fits great-not too tight but not too loose (you don't want your cycling top riding up on ya!). As I mentioned, I could layer it and still be comfortable but yet it is fitted enough to not chafe or ride up. It did not bind my arms and allowed for plenty of movement. It's tech material is also wicking so worries about sweating like a beast (which I do!) when out on a hard ride.
It's cute. I mean, really. Do you know how many comments I get from both males and females whenever I wear this out? The colors pop (a plus when you are out on the road) and yet it is stylish too. Win-win. It's girly. without being too girly.
It's a reasonable price point. If you have ever purchased a quality cycling jersey, you know that they are easily $100.00 and upwards. There is no skimping on quality in this jersey and it is a price that won't break the bank.
I love Tough Chik's unique designs--
