dhb Psyborg jersey

In a game of word association dhb’s “Psyborg” jersey prompted “Abdujaparov”; it’s a design you’ll either love or loathe but earned a fair few admiring glances, makes a welcome change from trade jerseys and continues the dhb’s reputation for well made, well priced garments.

Available in a choice of either black or white fit is close, although our large test sample proved more generous than expected to the point of being baggy around the sleeves yet opting for a medium would’ve left me cramped around the shoulders. The polyester based DM848 fabric feels very tactile against the skin, albeit thin in comparison with other jerseys.

In keeping with other polyester garments, intense effort in hot weather left me feeling quite damp before the fibres disperse moisture but the Psyborg is better than I’ve come to expect from polyester tops – something I attributable to thinner material. A half zip facilitates additional climate control, although I still prefer ¾ or full length items on summer jerseys-especially those pressed into turbo trainer service during the off season. However, pair with a decent base layer as early morning meanders left me feeling quite cold.

The time honoured three-rear pocket configuration is deep enough to swallow snacks, compact cameras or mobile phones and even 500ml trade bottles without ejecting them at the first bump. General quality of construction is pleasing and has indulged my love of outings sans asphalt and regular machine-washing without notable deterioration.

Verdict

A comfortable, reasonably priced summer jersey for those with a sense of fun
