Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

This vest is easily my favorite cycling clothing item. It’s super light, protects well from the wind, and most importantly: breathes well. It takes out all the temperature extremes and it has a great feel to it. It’s very elastic, so the fit is tight but comfortable, perfect for race day. It does not have rear pockets by design and that's perfectly fine as it is meant to be worn on top of your jersey, which has pockets already. Because it's so compact, it packs easily in one of the jersey's pockets but believe me, once you put it on, you won't want to take it off.

I exchanged another (cheaper) biking jersey for the Gore Bike Wear Power 2.0 and I love it. Very elastic, fits right all around, breathes well, has a zipper pocket in the back for my iPhone, and the price is just right with a 20% discount.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small

The De Marchi WP Euro National Short Sleeve Jersey looks great on the picture but not so good in person. It looks cheap in my hands and the cut fits poorly (6'0, 195 lbs). I found that surprising considering it's made in Italy. It's a bit loose in some places and too tight in others, which is why some reviewers here indicated it runs too large and other said it runs too small. It is not elastic enough, so it does not contort to your body well. The elastic band on the bottom is uncomfortably tight (I'm waist size 35). The material does not breathe well at all - I was getting too warm in it just standing in room temperature, so I can't imagine riding with it in hot weather. It does not have a full length zipper either. The pockets in the back do not feel tight enough and I would not be comfortable keeping a phone in them, esp. without a zipper for any of the pockets. This jersey's only virtue is its low price. I exchanged it for the Gore Bike Wear Power 2.0 Jersey - $20 extra but well worth the price IMO. Backcountry's customer service was fantastic. This was my fifth order from the site in the past 3 months and I've had great experience so far.
