Coming off of my rare 5-star review of the Louis Garneau Classico Bib Short
(read here:
you're probably looking for me to gush over the matching jersey. While I won't be gushing (ew), I will be placing heavy praise as the Classico Jersey complements the awesome bib shorts perfectly.
The Diamond Fabric definitely works as longer rides in the hot Utah summer aren't really fazing me as much as when I wear other jerseys. The pocket layout of smaller on both sides and bigger in the middle works very well for during-ride organization. The style is also really cool (okay, gushing here a bit).
If I'm going to harp on anything, it may as well be the fit. I went with a large and while I am 5' 11", 180 with a shorter torso and shorter arms, I have a smallish waist and shoulders of a 6' 3" person. The Large fit the waist well, the shoulders are a little tight than I would like and the negative I'm trying to bring across is that it doesn't feel consistent with the bibs as the jersey runs a bit smaller.
