    Solid Jersey, June 1, 2011
    By 

    Great jersey for a decent price. Fit is somewhat snug, but certainly not constrictive. I normally wear XL (with a 17 in neck) and ordered an XL. (I believe other reviewer with an 18″ neck ordering an XL was off a size). These shirts are most likely designed to fit tight so when your moving at 15mph+ they don’t act like a big sail holding you back. Bought the orange and was happy with appearance. Might not be a total fashion statement, but in the cyclist’s world’s context of tight, spandex-like shorts, don’t think that should be a reason for significant detriment to ratings. My statement is more “Look at me so you don’t hit me with your car” rather than, “Look at me, I’m beautiful”

    Semi-fitted, if you’re “husky.”, August 25, 2012

    Let’s start with the good first: picked it up for way less than retail, build quality seems good, material is nice, STAYS COOL even though it is too baggy. CONS: THE SIZING. This is not “semi-fitted.” Nike Dri-Fit apparel is semi-fitted. If you are built like the model in the picture, this jersey will be HUGE around your waist. (I would wager they are holding the abdomen taut with clothespins in the back, a trick I use as a wedding photographer). This is vanity sizing at its worst. I have a 41 inch chest and a 32 inch waist @ 170#, so per the PI sizing chart on their website, I ordered a medium. The chest is semi-fitted. The arms are semi-fitted. But I could carry a watermelon in the abdomen area. It is so loose, sitting fully upright on the bike causes the jersey pockets to swing away from me 2-3 inches. If you’re in good shape you will NOT be able to solve the problem by going a size smaller either (the medium length is correct for me @ 5’10”, but more importantly the shoulder seams are in the correct spot based on the chest sizing). And as other reviewers have mentioned, it seems very short in front for its size, and there is no real keeper elastic at the bottom. If the elastic at the bottom actually snugged back up, both the bagginess in the ab region and the shorter length would be way less noticeable. I’ll keep this jersey around for spring when I am thicker from lifting all winter and not riding as much. EDIT: AND the reflective “Pearl Izumi” logo fell off the back after 50 miles and 0 washings.

    I am new to road cycling and purchased this as my first jersey. I’m 5’10, 168lbs and purchased a medium. It fits snug, and has plenty of length in the back. It wicks away moisture very well and feels comfortable for the duration of any ride. I intend on atleast purchasing one more, possibly in a size large this time though just for a somewhat different appearance.
