Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 155 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I am 5ft6, 155ib and not a climber build! However, I usually take Small in PI, Rapha, Castelli and Assos, but for this jersey (I ordered S and M) the M was a better fir. There was not much of a noticeable difference with the chest fit between the two sizes, however the arms were much tighter, length a little shorter and neck tighter with the S. So like many reviewers here, I would say size up. This is summer weight material and wicks well. It is also shear, so UV blocking is probably not great. I have not chanced it and have put sunblock on my back and shoulders. This is a race jersey, so pockets are shallow and will not fully cover my iPhone Plus, there is also no zippered enclosure as you would get with more club ride/fondo wear. With discount, this is an OK buy. Without it, there are other climber jersey options our there that are a better, but just try finding these better ones in August - zero stock!

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

I switched from a pair of PI Elite tights with chamois that used over the winter last year and really like the change. The weather hasn't been too cold in NY yet, but early morning rides have started out in the low 40's and into the 50's. The bib fits is snug and form fitting (race), and being a bib there are no cinches at the waist or exposed flesh when you go aero mode! The graphics are minimal. I use PI PRO bib shorts underneath for the chamois and this works very well. We've had some windy days (15+ mph) that drove windchill into the 30's and these allow zero cold in. I have the PI PRO soft-shell jacket on top and vary the layering underneath depending on the conditions. Over 50F I have the crack the jacket zip, especially on climbs, but I've never felt too warm on the legs. I find the quality of PRO gear is excellent and PI is good value in general, plus their sizing is consistent across the range. Once you figure out your fit you can order the size and know it will fit. The only exception I've had to this was a 2014 PRO barrier jacket that was just an odd cut.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This jacket is very technical and extremely light. It can pack down very small and fit in a jersey pocket. I would have kept it but the small sizing ran much smaller around the chest than other Pearl Izumi tops that I have from the PRO and Elite ranges. Unfortunately for me going to medium the arms are way too long, so I switched the Elite convertible jacket which has worked out really well.
