The Name Says It All.
Equipped with a name that's as simple, clean, and somehow absolutely beautiful as De Marchi's kit designs, the Leggera radiates sheer simplicity and subtle technical performance. Modeled after De Marchi's warm-weather Pro Jersey, the Leggera uses Italian-made materials, along with a fit and minimalist colorways that in turn pose it as one of the best looking and most comfortable jerseys on the road.
A jersey starts with two things: fit and fabric. De Marchi wove the Leggera from stretchy, soft, and highly breathable microfiber, and patterned it using a slim fit for a comfortable, body-hugging shape that won't obstruct mobility or hinder performance. Raglan seams wrap around the front of the shoulders to eliminate chafing and restriction while in an aggressive riding position. And naturally, the lighter color options are designed as such that they resist UV rays rather than absorb them for enhanced comfort.
And of course, De Marchi made its name by paying attention to the details, so it's no surprise that the locking front zipper has an internal chin flap to prevent discomfort, or that the dropped rear hem has a gel strip to keep it from riding up. A bevy of rear pockets keep necessities close at hand, while reflective details and logos that take some of the worry out of dawn and dusk rides.

Poor fit and materials
Tailoring is boxy, material lacks structure and feels substandard quality.

Not what is pictured
I would echo what's been said before here. The jersey I got has no zipper garage, has much shorter sleeves (not laser cut) than in the picture, and has no gel gripper at the back. The sleeves are short, and without grippers they ride up--and so does the front. It looks nice and the fabric is very light and stretchy, but it is not what's described on this page.

Not what's described
Should have listend to other reviews as pic and description does not match what I received. Material is soft and stretchy but is the same material through out the garment. No zipper garge (big reason for my purchase) and sleeves are short basic hem not long laser cut as pic would lead you to believe. I would have aslo expected grippers at the bottom which standard issue. Honestly it looks like a copy cat from Asia! Tagging does seem to be original and it states made in Hungary so really not too sure what I purchased. For the price paid it's an ok peice BUT not what was described and promised!

The image shown on the website is wrong.
Sent This Back! The jersey sent to me is not the one that is shown on the website The sleeves were half the length of the ones shown and do not have the long sleeve cuff. Additionally, there is no zipper garage, and there is no back pocket zipper. Not what's expected from Competitive Cyclist but rather AliExpress. Hope you guys fix this error.

Jersey is well made for the price. Sleeves are a little tight on the arms, but if you don't lift and look like Chris Froome this will fit you perfectly. Material tight and comfortable. Pockets are deep and have never had a concern with my gear falling out.

De Marchi Allegra
42” chest, skinny arms. XL was too tight around the chest. Sleeves were too short and loose. The fabric was bunching up in the axilla. The jersey appears well made, somewhat shiny.

Bought as a full kit with the corresponding bibs: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/de-marchi-classico-bib-short-mens#wall-solicitations The jersey reflects the same quality as the bibs. Everything is beautiful, including the 'Sky' color. Pockets are deep enough to secure ride provisions but shallow enough to easily extract mid-ride snax. Transparency: I knocked it down a star because the zipper is a bit snaggy when trying to release from the garage. I'll likely purchase the grey as well.
