Look Good, Feel Good.
The perfect winter jersey is often hard to come by. The Men's Winter Jersey from De Marchi is a classic racing jersey that boasts a minimal, elegant silhouette and a handsome bi-colored Chevron design. We don't like this jersey just for its good looks alone, it's constructed of Superfine Merino and blended with nylon for superior durability and warmth. We find it perfect over a lightweight base layer or under a jacket for winter-time riding bliss. The prerequisite full zipper helps regulate temps and the 3 back pockets carrying enough supply for the long winter base miles. A zippered weather-proof pocket holds a phone for staying connected or shuffling tunes. A wind flap keeps out the winter chill and the chin saver keeps the zipper from digging in when the collar is worn high. For a better visibility in the dark it has a reflective stripe over the rear pockets. Classic Italian style and craftsmanship.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
- Height: 6'3"
- Weight: 205lbs
I returned this jersey before wearing it on the bike because the sleeves were too short. This is a common problem for me, so if you've not had a problem with long sleeves being too short before, this jersey will be fine. I bought an XL, which usually works, but the end of the sleeves stopped about an 1.25" short of my wrist. For dress shirts I wear a 37 sleeve and my wingspan is just a touch over 6'4" or 193 cm.
The jersey fit like a standard fitted jersey; somewhere between "race" and "club" fit. Were sleeve length not an issue, I would have been more than happy to ride with this jersey.
Great winter jersey
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used it many times on clear cold days with a wind proof base layer!
The wool part keeps me warm!
Excellent quality, very warm
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size

I haven't had a chance to take it out into any winter weather yet, but my first impression is that this plus a windbreaker is all I need for the coldest ride-day mornings in Texas.
