Jess Fawcett – Women’s Cycling Apparel Review

At PARIA, we strive to work with artists and designers who are not necessarily native to the cycling design world, but understand the PARIA vibe. We aim to take influences from outside the standard sphere of cycling kit design, and give them a spin on our cycling jerseys, cycling bib shorts and cycling accessories. This ensures you stand out on the bike for all the right reasons, and should feel as comfortable on your velo as you do off.

Thanks to Jess for wearing and reviewing our female cycling jersey; Droplet Like It’s Hot – she rocks it particularly well we feel… Below is a quick taster of her first cycling experience with Paria.

After a few seconds of scrolling around the PariaCC website I was bozz-eyed in love. I’d stumbled upon a brand of cycling gear that was eye-catching, a bit off-the-wall and (important when you’re me) born in Yorkshire. Add to that the affordable price tag and you have yourself a no-brainer situation: Hi…Buy…….


……A great feature of this jersey is the very decent amount of storage provided by the rear pockets; HELLO – if I wanted to take my kitchen sink out with me, I probably could. As you can see, there are three open pockets, as well as a zipped one (that also sports a reflective strip for those naughty night rides). The zip pocket was perfect for my phone and debit card, which usually I feel a bit nervous about having loose in the back of my jersey.  A final techy feature is the sticky hem (more neatly referred to as the ‘Free hem with silicone gripper’ on the website), which prevented any unwanted riding up. Because when I’m out on my bike, the only riding allowed is by me. So that was much appreciated, not only in function, but also in form: The tiny skull and Paria logos printed onto the silicone are a pretty schweet detail too. Nice one.

So there we have it. A little review for you if you’re on the hunt for something a bit different, affordable, functional and, in my humble opinion, bloody awesome.
