For the grey areas.
It's easy to fall into the polar trap of cycling kit. Summer? Tissue-thin, lightweight Lycra. Winter? Wind-resistant, insulating, waterproof armor. But rarely is the weather this conveniently black and white, so Giordana designed the Silverline Jersey to fill in the grey spaces between hot and cold.
The Silverline's long sleeves fight off the chill without overheating your core during hard exertions. Cut into a semi-relaxed fit, the jersey uses Giordana's lightweight, breathable ERG200 fabric in order to ensure that your torso is sufficiently vented for high-output training and racing. Meanwhile, the brushed inner-face of the ThermoDream material traps body heat at the shoulders, sleeves, and back in order to keep you consistently warm.
The jersey's tall collar insulates your neck while also preventing cold air from sneaking in, but the full-length zipper's substantial pull-tab means you can easily unzip to dump extra heat on climbs — even while wearing bulky, wind-blocking gloves. The jersey's elastic, grippy hem ensures full coverage during all of your movements in the saddle. Three rear pockets provide the standard complement of storage, so you can take the headband and glove liners off mid-ride if you get too hot.

- Q & A
I love this jersey!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: small
It is a perfect weight for fall days. I ordered a small and it fits perfect. I think it fits true to size b/c I always wear a small.
Nice jersey, but...
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
I like the colors (mine is black and purple) and the material, although not as thick as I would have thought it would be for a "winter" jersey. I did see that it runs on the smaller side, but I should have listened. I am 5'3" and 116 pounds and am usually a medium (sometimes small), but this jersey is way too small. I will have to send back and order a large. Definitely order one size up from your normal size and you won't have to exchange.
Ok, back with an update...
Exchanged the medium for a large (since it runs small) and I am SO happy I did. Wore it today with a sleeveless base layer and Castelli heavy jacket and it was perfect. The temperature when I started was 38 degrees and ended at 44 degrees on a 41 mile B* club ride. Was able to control my body temp easily with the zippers on my jacket and this great looking Giordana jersey.
Runs Extremely Small
The XL fits like a Medium or small Large. Beware. It's too bad because it was a really nice looking Jersey with high end material.
