Simply MTB | Bandara Short Sleeve Review

Simply MTB | Bandara Short Sleeve Review

I ride a lot! Teaching mountain biking puts my clothes through the ringer with up to 12 rides per week! Luckily, the Club Ride Bandara can withstand the wear. As a mountain bike instructor, I need to stay looking fresh and professional and the best way to do that is with the button up, collared jersey. The Bandara is durable enough to go through many washes and always comes out looking like I just took the tags off.

"I put my clothes through the wringer with up to 12 rides per week! Luckily, the Club Ride Bandara can withstand the wear. "

I don't know how Club Ride did it but they managed create a button up shirt that never needs ironing. If you're worried this shirt will be too stuffy, don't be. It has mesh sides that allow for extra breath-ability and the material never gets clingy, even in the heat of the Utah summers. It always feels cool and breezy.

When I need to quick draw my phone for videos of my students, I like to keep it in the roomy, yet hidden zipper pocket on the lower right side. When I'm not using the pocket, you would never know it's there since it has a quality hidden zipper.
