Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had a little trepidation upon ordering this jersey so I ordered a size up (L vs. M) based on the reviews below... I've had issues with other brands on that front, most notably Castelli so wanted to avoid any troubles. Once it arrived I tried it on, and was not impressed. Decided to give it a shot in M so returned for my normal size and what a difference... It does indeed fit like a second skin, best on the bike but that's exactly what I want in a jersey (I am no fan of the "club fit" e.g.: no material flapping in the breeze as I pedal along or like a shirt when lounging around). On the bike it fits perfectly, especially with bibs. The material is different than what I'm used to but I liked it quite a bit, cool texture and nice cut. Also the orange color is great for visibility and the venting/breathability make for extremely airy feel. The pockets are well thought out ensuring nothing will fall out and that's my only issue... grabbing a gel, bar or mobile from the back can be difficult. A compromise between the tight fit and looser pockets. I can still manage so no star deduction for it. I really like the POC products, got the first Tribec and pads for my mountain bike, the Octal for my road and this is par for the POC course: great quality and well thought out.
