This jersey is beautiful on, the fabric is great at keeping you cool. The back is like a pocket extravaganza! Pockets, pockets and more pockets! The fit is larger than other jerseys I own, I should have gotten a size smaller than I did, as the back sags when I put anything in my pockets. This is a great jersey to own, and well worth the price if you need something light and cool.
These shorts are very comfortable, but the chamois is very thick. After a while in the saddle, too much padding can be a tad uncomfortable to me. The length is longer than the Giordana FRC and Pearl Izumi Elite, which I don't mind, the compression is nice. No sausage leg, and the waist is a nice height, no spillage over the top. They look great, and the fabric is fantastic, like second skin.
These shorts are extremely comfortable, and I have to say that I love the fact that the chamois isn't too thick. Some of the shorts I have are too padded and that actually causes more pain and numbness, in my opinion. The fabric is incredible, they're not too long. They're very fitted, so I sized up and it was perfect. I love that there's no sausage leg and the rise is high enough that there's no spillage over the top. My only complaint is that there's a few tags sewn into the lower back. Funny how something so small can be so annoying! I really do not understand why Giordana would sew tags into their shorts. Other than that, they look great and feel great.
This jersey feels awesome, the fabric is great, even in the Mississippi heat! The photo is a tad deceiving, you can't really see the "texture". It's definitely a "mesh". It's cool and very comfortable, very fitted and lightweight. The description says it has a gel gripper to hold the waist hem to your shorts, I have this jersey in two different colors, neither of which have ANY sort of gripper, which I really would like. Overall, it's an excellent jersey to own and if you have a Bianchi like I do, the colors in this jersey match perfectly with Bianchi Celeste!
