All-round performance for backcountry sorties. With no rear pockets it won't fight with your backpack. And its long sleeves provide warmth and shade as the day changes its temper. Bombs away.

I'd heard the stories about how the long sleeves kept the sun away and didn't make you too hot, so I thought I'd try it. With only a couple of rides I've found it to be a nice riding top, and while initially it seems warm once you've started sweating it does a good job of keeping you cool!
I have been using the B52 for a few weeks and can say it is a really comfortable garment. Great for keeping the sun off but does not feel extra hot. The side pocket works well - I no longer have to take steps not to sit on my mobile phone. Yet another great produce from GE
Good weight and highly visible colour, but lack of collar not so good in the sun
Great top..early morning ride with sleeves down zip up.As temperature rises sleeves push up and zip comes down.Does all I expected just great
Nice do it all top. Does exactly what it says it will do. Cool enough on long climbs and rolling up your sleeves is easy on the move. Looks smart. Pocket is for light weight things only - a lightweight phone at best. Better to carry your stuff in a backpack. I'd recommend it.
