Nice Look Go Big
This is a nice functioning product once you get the fit right, but could be improved upon for larger folks. I'm 6'0" and 185 pounds with broad shoulders. I originally purchased a XL and had to exchange it for a XXL. I don't consider myself a big guy but even the XXL is not a perfect fit. The shoulders and torso area fit nice but the jersey length is a bit shorter than what I like (I don't particularly like showing off my hairy belly when I'm off the bike and lift my arms over my head). The Garneau jerseys are a little better for taller people. With that said, the jersey is solid and would work great for people with a shorter upper body. This is what I get for being on the tall side.
comfortable on the bike, not off
When I initially put this jersey on, I didn't like the fit because it binds around the pits. It seems it's shaped to be worn on the bike though, because once I get over the bars that goes away. I've decided to look at that as a good reminder to quit standing around and get rolling.
Otherwise, it's nice jersey. Good looks, full zip... certainly worth the money at bonktown prices.
I found that the size chart on here did not match that which I found on another site for Castelli gear. They definitely run smaller than PI stuff. I'm a relatively scrawny 140lbs at 5'9" and the medium fits great.
I really like this jersey. It has great styling and is functional. I am 5'11" 157 lbs and I have a big chest and large arms. I bought a size large jersey since with Castelli you should usually go a size up. Definitely look at the sizing chart before you buy. (I normally wear medium in other brands). The jersey fits great. I don't remember there being any elastic on the arms, but it is not an issue for me as I fill the sleeves up completely without a problem. I'm not too crazy about the zipper at the moment, but maybe I just need to get used to it. You also can't go wrong with 50% off. I look forward to using this during the warmer months.
I love this jersey. I do agree that the cut is tighter for someone, like myself, who has a larger chest. But when riding this feels great! Looks better! The elastic is NOT too loose at all... The guy below must be a twig! Buy this and look great!
