Review: Colomba Italian Tricolor Jersey

Colomba is a small UK firm producing a select range of Sportwool products; a clever blend of 52% merino wool coupled with polyester fabrics to increase durability.

The short sleeved Italian Tricolor jersey is a beautifully made, heavy weight, short sleeve jersey; ideal to be coupled with arm warmers and a base layer for spring time riding.

The Tricolor jersey has a classic quality about it; the embroidered logo, heavy stitching and relatively relaxed cut make it look and feel like a jersey from a by-gone age. Yet its Sportwool construction gives you great comfort and climate control.

There are three deep rear pockets, and one smaller zipped pocket, with a classy hooped zip. These little touches make it something a bit different from the norm. The jersey really does have a retro feel to it, almost like you are back in the 1950s with Fausto Coppi riding alongside you; it's certainly a different class to the thin lycra jerseys that are found in the peloton today.

The Colomba Tricolor jersey is quite unique then, a classic jersey with a truly traditional look and feel.
