Tested in the hottest and most humid temperatures, this jersey is for fast and scorching summer miles. Supremely light and cut to flatter, the Lightweight Souplesse Jersey is a lighter weight version of the ever popular Souplesse Jersey. Using high-performance, high-wicking fabrics this light and breathable jersey uses a soft main fabric, milled specifically for Rapha Souplesse, and a semi-sheer fabric on the sleeves that will feel invisible in the hottest conditions. The same material is found at the bottom rear panel, beneath the pockets, for added weight-saving and moisture evaporation.
Treated with Coldblack® dye, a protective finish that reduces the absorption of sunlight and reflects heat, the Lightweight Souplesse Jersey is smooth and soft to the touch. Soft grippers on the cuffs and at the hem keep the jersey in place, and a bonded front hem ensures maximum streamlining. The lightweight zipper is the lightest made by Japanese manufacturer YKK.

What is the SPF rating of the fabric, including the sleeves? Also, it looks like the middle pocket is quite narrow, is that correct?
Is the black "cool black?"
