Aero efficiency and high-visibility.
Designed to improve aero efficiency and improve visibility on the road, the POC AVIP Jersey provides premium performance for racing and training. Its four-way stretch fabric features a compact 3D structure for improved aerodynamics, while mesh underarm panels keep you cool on hot summer days. Its streamlined fit provides freedom of movement and excellent breathability when you're working up a sweat.
Designed with a full-length zipper, the AVIP Jersey offers improved ventilation when you're riding hard under the midday sun. Glued and seamless endings won't chafe or irritate your skin, especially when you're dropped over the bars. Other features include a three-compartment back pocket with integrated My Info Pocket for holding your identification. This jersey also has a reflective back print and arm logo for extra visibility after the sun goes down.

I wear medium in Assos, Rapha(Pro Team line). They fit very well around my torso. Body hugging, but not restrictive when in tuck-in position. So I ordered this POC top of line jersey in M. The jersey looks very high tech. It has a lot of nice details and features such as welded seams, laser cut edges and patterned reflective center pocket. The color panels are interestingly laid out. From stylistic point of view, this jersey has it all.
Now, the most important part of the jersey: fit. It’s a big thumb down. For a medium jersey, the arm pits are tight. They bind when my arms reach forward and in the tuck-in riding position. Chest area is a bit restrictive too in the tuck-in position. The worse part is the waist. While the top half of the jersey is tight and binding, the bottom half is loose. It’s baggy around the waist. I can't even say it's a race fit because a true race fit like Rapha Pro Team line is buddy hugging, second skin like, but not binding, restrictive, or baggy around the waist. So this AVIP jersey is neither race fit, nor club fit. What fit exactly this is???
This has too be the oddest fitting medium size race jersey I’ve ever pulled on. For how much it is, this is very disappointing. POC is a great helmet company. I love their Octal line of helms. I actually own two of them. Their clothing is just plain disappointing. I also reviewed their arm warmers a while back. Same issue: poor fit. If they want to be in this saturated cycling apparel business and keep up with the big boys like Assos and Rapha, they need to overhaul the fitting of their soft goods.
A solid jersey to have in the line-up

I really like the clean look of this jersey- and the AVIP concept works- this is very visible. The fit is euro- order up a size- and if you have a little belly it will show. I find the fit to be a bit odd- it doesn't seem to contour around my shoulders like nearly every other jersey I own, and the breath-ability leaves a lot to be desired. Overall, I'd say it's a decent jersey- I really like the look, and you can tell its a quality product.
