Review: Half Baked Brand "Ride Like You Mean It" Jersey

Half Baked Brand are a Devon based outfit that make a whole range of cool, quirky and unique custom jerseys. Last month they released one of their latest designs; the “Ride It Like You Mean It” jersey. It is a feature packed top, at a great value price tag, and it is sure to make you stand out in any peloton.

The jersey is a stunning sky blue colour; quite easily one of the nicest, if not the nicest coloured jersey that I own. The theme is truly classic; with the white and red bands bearing a resemblance to jerseys of a by-gone era, and giving a very traditional appearance.

The looks may be classic, but this is a modern jersey in terms of the materials, design and feel.

Boasting three good sized and well elasticated rear pockets, as well as an additional smaller zipped valuables pocket, there is plenty of room for all the ride essentials for those long summer miles. The full length zip facilitates maximum ventilation when you’re pushing hard on the climbs, and the strong zipper design is easy to re-engage and zip up for the descents, even on the move (something that is becoming increasingly difficult with the smaller zippers that feature on many new lightweight jerseys). The hem has got a superb, chunky gel gripper to stop the top riding up your back, and the material is a medium-weight but breathable polyester.

The ‘Ride It’ jersey has a more relaxed cut than many of my racing kits, but then this is not designed to be an all-out aero design. Instead, the relaxed feel, loose sleeves and soft collar, make it a great choice for all day riding.

The thing that sets this Half Baked Brand jersey apart from many others is the attention to detail. The writing on the collar, the high quality material, and the strength of the stitching make this jersey unique; whilst the classy design provides a touch of flair when you spot yourself in window reflections as you fly past.

All the Half Baked Brand jerseys are very reasonable on the wallet; with the range starting at price tags as low as £25 (Link) That’s great value considering the build quality and features of these tops.

If you are looking for a unique, modern, and well-designed top to ride in this summer, HBB is well worth checking out; it’s something a bit different, it’s British, and there are even cow-print jerseys if you are going for the Devon look!
