Adapt to ride.
As cyclists, we find that our rides take us through a whole gamut of conditions throughout the day. Pearl Izumi is well aware of this, and accordingly, it built the Attack Long Sleeve Jersey with UV-blocking protection, moisture-wicking fabrics, a full-length zipper, and reflective accents. So, whether it's cool, sunny, or simply getting dark, you won't have to worry about how your jersey is going to hold up.
Pearl Izumi built the Attack jersey out of its proprietary polyester blend, the Select Transfer fabric. Basically, this material was chosen for its moisture wicking ability, not its warming prowess. After all, the Attack long sleeve wasn't designed to be a winter-weight jersey. Instead, Pearl constructed the Attack to replicate its short-sleeve counterpart, only with integrated arm warmers. Accordingly, you'll notice that the jersey's short sleeves have been sewn at the triceps to the long sleeve arm warmers. This way, you maintain the moisture-wicking comfort of the standard Attack jersey, while simultaneously benefiting from the long sleeves' warming capabilities. Additionally, Pearl Izumi gave the Attack jersey a boost with a UPF 50 protection rating. As a result, harmful UV rays are kept from damaging your skin when you're out on a long ride.
And since bunching and chafing will put a damper on your ride, the Attack jersey features a contoured cut that yields a next-to-skin fit. As a result, the jersey moves with your body throughout the motions of cycling, not against it. At the small of the back, you'll find three pockets for your ride essentials. And since you don't want the fit of the jersey to suffer at the hands of loaded pockets, Izumi also included gripper elastic at the rear hem.
The Pearl Izumi Attack Long Sleeve Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/white, Electric Blue/black, Screaming Yellow, True Blue/black, True Red/black, and White/black.

Very Comfortable Jersey
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This jersey fits and works well for me. It is so comfortable that I generally forget about it once it is on. As explained in the product description, it is the same as the similar product with short sleeves and is thus only a bit warmer. I'm 5'10" with a 42-inch chest and size large fits me.
