    Details

    To have, or have not.

    Upgrading your training kit takes a technical turn with Louis Garneau's Elite M2 RTR Jersey, which is constructed with five different fabrics jockeying to wick moisture and follow your body movements as quickly as possible while you ride. Overall, the jersey adopts a slim, rather than painted-on race fit, still contoured and able to follow body movements with its high Lycra content but not so tight that it can't be taken out on an easy evening spin. Though portions of the Elite M2 are dark in color, it still makes a valuable companion on hot, sunny days with its all-over coldblack coating, which equips the jersey to reflect, rather than absorb, UV rays.

    Garneau doesn't skip adding a host of thoughtful features to the Elite M2 RTR, and its attention to detail shows. The longer, "aero"-inspired sleeves employ sleek laser-cut hems that allow the fabric to stay in place as you move around without pinching or chafing, and the standard three rear pockets at the back of the jersey have been angled to make their contents more easily accessible from the saddle. For the days you forget to bring along a small plastic bag to protect your phone from sweat on your ride, you'll be able to store your phone or other electronics safely in the jersey's additional, double-walled pocket. The rear hem is finished with a lightweight, flexible gripper to make sure the rear of the jersey doesn't ride up as you shift in the saddle, and reflective accents help you stay visible to motorists when your ride extends into the low-light hours.

    Nice jersey

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    Nice, but given the size chart, it's smaller than it should be across the chest. I have a 36" chest and shoulders to match, and it's not just ill-fitting, it's uncomfortable across the chest unless I happen to be in the drops. Easily a half size too small vs. the size chart. Very high quality jersey, but uncomfortable across the chest unless I'm in the position that I'd imagine most people spend 5% of their time in after getting dressed. Having a woman's bone structure is another possible solution.

    Upon further review after today's ride, the most annoying issue is the arms. My arms measure a modest 11" of lean machine at the tan line with my elbow flexed, and I'm constantly aware of the tightness of the material on my arms and shoulders. Seriously, what is the "normal" size upper arm for a guy with a 35-37" chest?

    Easy to love

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This jersey is amazingly versatile: aero fit for normal people, aero fabric on strategic areas, well vented fabric on appropriate areas, and reflective fabric on the back. This is the best summer jersey I have ever owned.
