The Euro Nationals Limited Edition Lightweight Men's Jersey is roughly equivalent to a summer-weight jersey combined with lightweight arm sleeves, so its preferred temperatures are days when the sun is shining, the temperature is around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and shade from tree canopies inspires a bit of a shiver. Incidentally, those in-between, shoulder-season rides are among our favorites.
The difference between this jersey and the jersey/sleeves option is that, when the temperature dips and layering becomes a priority, this jersey doesn't betray you by letting a gap develop between sleeve and shoulder. It also doesn't add undue bulk and obnoxious transitional ridges below your outer layer—a decided plus if you're looking for a light, moisture-managing top to wear under today's species of breathable, race-fit super jerseys.
The jersey is made from a synthetic material that rides softly but breathes and wicks moisture in a big way. Those properties mean it can actually ride comfortably into the high 70s, but the added protection of long sleeves does help to take the chill out of November afternoons and March mornings.

Very nice jersey--quality materials and feel, as with most De Marchi Stuff, and with a classic and understated design. It's a close fit, like Castelli in sizing, and the material is quite stretchy as well as thin. I wouldn't ride it into the high 70s--it's perfect for crisp mornings with a base layer underneath, or for layering. I got the Belgian design; a shame there was no British jersey (but two Italian ones on offer?) A steal at this price.

Beautiful LS jersey, light to medium weight, perfect for early Fall or Spring. Classic roadie look, great colors, but not over the top or fussy. Fits well without bunching, pockets sized correctly, Italian sizing akin to Castelli, Assos, or Giordana. Nice product.
