    I bought a women's New Balance Lycra full zip jacket

    at Marshall's today. I came upon it by chance in the boy's clearnace section. It was only $7 and I thought it has some bike function. I didn't realize it was labeled "Women" at first but when I found out I said, screw it, it's cheap and the color isn't bad. It fits snugly too. This is my second bike-specific clothing. My question is am I supposed to wear the jacket over a shirt (or t-shirt)? The jacket is made of fibers woven so that sweat moves to the surface of it and evaporates. Will wearing a cotton t-shirt defeat this purpose? Do I wear this "jacket" (that's what is on the label) like a shirt with nothing underneath?

    I would probably not wear a wicking shirt under this jacket, as the two of them together will probably suck the moisture out of your body so quickly that you will be nothing but dust by the time the ride is over.

    If it were me, I'd wear a wife-beater T under the jacket. For even better results, try the T over the jacket. Let us know how that turns out.

    The real question is whether you're using a wicking bra with it...

    Try that. He was looking for info on the garment.
    mtbtires.com
    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
