    Troy Lee Designs - Grind Jersey

    Recently I saw a "professional youtuber" wearing a pretty cool Flannel. Troy Lee was printed on the front so I paused the video and decided to look up the shirt.
    Sure enough, easy find. It is called the "Grind" jersey. As with most things fashionable and branded it comes with a hefty price tag at $70+.

    By the power of the internet, other model years of the jersey were offered up for a much more affordable cost of $43 and change I think it was. And in my size (Medium).

    In person, the print is spot on to mimic a flannel. The material, however, is of course MTB friendly. First thing I did was toss it in the washing machine. I was amazed how the water bounced off the material.
    Many reviews state the sleeves could be longer, and I agree. To wear it normal is just a tad short but arms extended attacking the trails it is a little short. For me, it's not short enough to not recommend it.

    It only has one zippered pocket which will fit my Galaxy S7 Edge. It's on the right back. The chest pocket has a single snap in the center, no flap. Good for snacks at least.

    The cuffs have double snaps. The front is all snaps, space closely enough to not pucker. They feel secure and easy to fasten. It fits true to size as most of my other shirts are size medium.

    There are still a few of these floating around on the internet for this price. The two for the model year I purchased are a Yellow one and a Red one. I purchased both. The red is more of a burnt red color, not bright.

    Different model years have a different pocket arrangement too. But the ones I have seem to work well. For me, at least one secure pocket is important.
    I've only worn it once and it was comfortable with a thin base layer under it. It was 50 degrees and windy and it kept me more than sufficiently warm. Except for the damp shaded areas I could have gotten away without the thin thermal base.
    I can't speak to tear resistance or how it holds up to washings at this time.
    I'm not a fan of yellow, necessarily. However, this does match my 2016 stumpjumper with yellow accents and orange/yellow fork.

    So if you're in the need for a decently priced long sleeve, maybe one of the internet sites can hook you up while there are a few left. EVO may be your best bet right now.

    Thatís a kick ass shirt. Could I get away wearing it with jeans off the bike? I wear my Sombrio, Dakine, Specialized, and Oakley plaid shirts at work all the time. If so, itís going on the list for Santa. If not Iím going to pass. I like to be able to double up my biking attire that way.

    Sonofa b. I canít find it anywhere.

    Walmart "kinda" has the same thing but less expensive for 17 bucks. Its there Swiss Tech brand. Stretchy flannel material with chest pocket with button and comes in variety of colors. The price is nice to buy 2 or more than the TLD and if you mess it up, go buy another one.. here's the link.

    I just received the Sombrio Vagabond as well. I think the Sombrio is a bit more 'fancy' in appearance as far as the print. I bought the womans version for my EX last year. She liked it a lot. This Black-Friday week it was $38 bucks for the Vagabond. I also got the medium and it is a little larger than the TLD. The shoulders fit bigger one me, undecided if it is the right fit. I need to wear it again to determine. I am sure a size small will be too much of a size change to fit properly. The medium fit is fine through the chest and allows for movement. The small may not.

    Buy yeah the TLC goes with jeans. I wouldn't hesitate to wear it after a ride to wherever I am heading for lunch or a drink. Again though, the Yellow is a bit bright but if that is your thing then it's perfect. I'd still wear the yellow though.

    Hopefully the blue and/or green ones drop in price soon.

    Holy shit. I didnít mention it above because I forgot about them but I also have 2 of the Fox Rowans. Wearing one right now. Itís incredible. Itís a little stretchy and fits like a glove.

    Forest Rider - I also have 5 different Sombrio Vagabonds. And my daughter has 3 of the womenís version. Those are killer shirts. Also a little stretchy. The sleeves are long enough that I roll the cuffs over (still done up) and you then get that super wicked Sombrio piping or whatever you call it in plain view. Those Sombrios are the most kick ass shirts I have bought in my life.

    So...I obviously have a real problem with the whole plaid flannel thing. I also have some TLDs, although not the Grind. And I mentioned above that I have a bunch of Oakleys and Specialized too. Jeezus. I also have a bunch of non-biking plaid shirts - Diesel and GStar Raw. Others too.

    I think maybe an intervention is in order.

    ...but not before I try to track down a large Grind...

    HO-LEE SHIT! IíM CLEARLY ADDICTED!
