Might as well go to Big 5
- I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought:
- 6' 2"
This is basically an $80 Big 5 athletic shirt. Nothing special about it. Not especially comfortable. No integrated goggle wipe. No high end Polartech materials like Fox. Sizing is very large. XL was too big for me and neck line was massive. I am always an XL. After inspection, I refuse to believe this is any more durable than run of the mill athletic apparel. I've noticed POC items are extremely overpriced, and that is in a sea of overpriced MTB apparel. This should be a budget jersey. Considering my experience with this jersey and the Tectal helmet, it is obvious that the amount of design and forethought that goes into POC's offerings is very minimal. I recommend looking at the Troy Lee Sprint or Sprint Ultra for a very hardy Downhill Jersey. The Raceface Ruxton is extremely comfortable, but perhaps a bit less durable than the Troy Lee Sprint line. Check out Fox Defend for cutting edge material. I get it, people like the simplicity of POC. But you can have a simplistic appearance while still keeping up with other companies technologically.
