Quest Short-Sleeve Jersey
Moving comfort to the forefront of design influence, the Pearl Izumi Men's Quest Jersey forgoes flashy graphics and over-the-top tech in favor of clean, uncluttered aesthetics and function-driven details. Select Transfer fabric actively pulls moisture off your body, ensuring proper thermo-regulation when you're riding under the hot summer sun. And unlike race-specific jerseys, the Quest's semi-fitted cut is not overly restrictive or skin-tight. The 10-inch front zip ventilates your upper body when you're suffering on steep climbs, while the elasticized hem keeps the jersey from flapping at high speeds or riding up when you're dropped over the bars. Other key features include three rear pockets for ample storage of energy gels and extra layers, as well as reflective elements for boosted visibility after dark.

- Q & A
Big and Saggy
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: XXL
- Height: 6'2"
- Weight: 230lbs
I bought an XXL as I typically wear that size in bike gear (6'2" 230). I should have gone with my regular size for all other shirts (XL) as this is loose and the winds grabs it a bit and it's loose around the waist which is annoying. I'm keeping it to use as a layer once it gets cold here (SW FL). Well made and great material but definitely "true to size." I have another Pearl Jersey that is an XXL and fits great but I think even at the correct size it would not be very tight. It's not designed to fit that way I think, which is why I'm not exchanging it for a smaller size (it would still fit loose). Over some long-sleeve sport t-shirts I have it should be fine in the cold. Plus I'm all about Hi-Vis what with all the geezer snow birds on the roads down here.
Great semi-fitted jersey
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The quest jerseys are very good. I've had a couple of them in rotation for the past few years. They've held up great. I wear them in extreme heat and they do as well as anything else. The UPF 50 is essential for me. I'd definitely recommend these. Keep in mind, while they are fitted, they are not as form-fitting (i.e., skin-tight) as some other jerseys.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: L
- Height: 5'8"
- Weight: 175lbs
Nice material and fits well in the torso, but the arms are as baggy as a casual t-shirt. I'm a 40 chest and not particularly skinny (in other words, my biceps aren't huge but they're not twigs either).
bellowed pockets that give you extra room to store your gear while maintaining the fit of the jersey
