Jersey with vintage style, urban on pt
5 5

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 163 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

CC's description said you might wear this to the office on Friday and that the pockets are decorative. Nope! It's a wool jersey with super style for an urban ride, especially ones with coffee/food or movies, rides like that. I put my cycling wallet, my huge phone, and my koozie into the pockets, no problem. If you buy your normal jersey size, it fits like a jersey (a vintage wool one, anyway). So, no, you cannot wear this to the office unless you work at CC, but you can look great on your townie bike and doing townie bike things. I got the pink, for Giro time. You'll look better than me, no doubt.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

I wanted to add a note here that I initially ordered based on chest size as stated in the size chart on the item. (So, L for me.) The chest fit is just right, but the neck was big, the arms were big (flapped in the wind), and the length was too long. I clearly needed to go down a size. It fits nothing like the size large I wear in Rapha, Giro, LG, or others. Otherwise, the jersey had good quality. I wish all jerseys were a little easier to start the zipper at the bottom.
Exchanged for a medium size, which fits much better. It still doesn't grip my arms, but it doesn't flap in the wind. It looks great and offers reflectivity for evening rides.

I agree with everything in Peter S's review, but I just want to add that this helmet is seriously well ventilated. I'm pretty sure it costs me me speed going downhill, because it feels like a sail on my head. On the flip side of it costing me speed, it certainly cools my head off. I wouldn't wear this outside of hot weather, but I do like it on super hot days. The gel pad system really helps in keeping my head cool. It also offers pretty good coverage, down to my sunglasses. It's just that it's such a sail when your speed increases over 25 mph.
At least the fit info for this helmet is spot-on. Giro's stinks.
