I dont like wearing super tight lycra on my trainings or long weekend rides, but not a big fun of baggy shirts either. This one is for me the perfect summer jersey! Tight enough that does not flap, a little room to forgive those sausages and fries you've been eating lately, nice look and feel on the skin.
The 5 pockets design is also a great plus!
Wow, Pearl Izumi seriously needs to get their act together on the sizing of their jerseys. Not only is the chest sizing all over the map, this is now the fourth (and last) jersey I've tried from them that the torso length of the jersey is absurdly short.
This one fits like it was sized for a child, such that as a 6'3 tall man, who normally has no issue with shirt length in a size large, found this jersey to be so short that when standing upright it was two inches or more short of the waistband of my shorts. Even bent over like one would do riding this would still be too short.
Had the jersey not been so ridiculously short, this would probably be a great jersey, but as it stands, it's terrible.
I was looking for a jersey that was not too tight but this is not it. I usually wear an XL in Pearl Izumi Elite jerseys so I ordered this in XL. This jersey is very long and very loose at the bottom, more like a relaxed fit casual shirt. If you are looking for something that is not snug or if your waist is larger than your chest this would be a good choice. The material is very nice and the color is great.
