Team Health Warrior Review: Garneau's Course Superleggera Jersey

For the past few weeks here in NYC it's been Jakarta hot out. We've found ourselves breaking into a sweat like Mel Gibson in "The Year of Living Dangerously" just thinking about riding our bikes. In such conditions, we put a premium on any piece of kit that is super light and super breathable. Fortunately, this year we expanded our kit order to include LG’s Course Supperleggera (Italian for “super light”) jersey. Being put into such heavy rotation recently by many of the guys on the team recently, the timing is right to share our impressions.
