Best Bike Hoodies For Urban Riding

Like the Outlier hoodie, the also-pricey Chrome wicks and keeps you warm. It is a similarly quality product, with the performance for sweaty commutes on cool days.

Extra touches on the Chrome include front hand-warmer pockets, thumb loops on the cuffs, a key pocket on the wrist area, and a large jersey-type cargo pocket with a concealed zipper on back.

The Chrome fits tighter than the Outlier and is more performance-minded. But the Outlier has a subtler, higher-end look and doesn’t scream “bike wear” as much as the Chrome piece might. If you can afford them, either of these hoodies are solid tops for cool days in a city and on a bike.
