Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just got two of these for winter training and outdoor riding, as well as base layer for skiing. My comments are first reactions — nothing more — but since I am surprised by the fit, I thought it might help others to post now. The fabric — CoolMax Pro according to a stamp on the shirts — feels good, both in the hand and on the body. the neck and cuffs are comfortable to put on and wear. The fit, however, is _very_ long — longer than even a size "Long" might be. I have long arms, and the arms are still too long. The hem of the main part is at my thighs. If you buy your clothes "long", it will be OK. If you don't, it is likely to be too long.

I have one additional complaint: prominent on the collar, in front, is the name of the manufacturer. For the price, a monogram might be offered. I prefer my garments without text. If Craft were giving them away, perhaps some might wear them and advertise for Craft. I won't.

This is a superb, very light, amateur race jersey that says "I'm not here to twaddle about". Extra zippered pocket is welcome. Worth the MSRP; a bargain on sale. My most-Type-A riding buddies ask me what it is and where I got it.
As mentioned, _runs small_. Not just Euro-small, but maybe a half-size smaller than that.
Mine fits like a second skin; it's fantastic for long hot days.

Excellent jersey for the price (I purchased it discounted). No complaints at all. As described: "relaxed fit", not "race fit". Small extra pockets (between the usual pockets and the mid-side seams) are perfect for driver's license & credit cards. Well spec'd; well made. I wish it did not say "Giordana" in big letters above the pockets (but not as giant-silly as "POC"). I'd buy another if I needed it.

Purchased this (discounted) for a week of riding in Mallorca. Perfect as a race-fit windbreaker for long descents, and with sleeves on for cool mornings. With sleeves off, rolls and fits in jersey pocket. Versatile for dry riding (I always carry a lightweight POC rain shell with me). Happy to have it in my cycling bag. Well-made, works as advertised. It has short sleeves under the long sleeves, which works well. Seems to breath well — doesn't get too warm if you wear it between descents, etc. NB: race fit, and runs small.
