Great in hot weather
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I picked this shirt up in the last couple weeks as the summer really kicked off and I am glad I did. It feels great to have air flowing across your torso on a hot ride, and the fabric has a smooth feel against the skin. I've also been surprised by the durability of the mesh, as most of my riding pushes through narrow sections on single track with thorn bushes surrounding the trails.
As for the fit, its got a little extra space for wearing pads underneith, however the "long" sleeves are really closer to 3/4 length. At 5'6" wearing a small the sleeves come down to mid forearm, but I tend to pull them up just below the elbow. If you'd prefer sleeves going down to your gloves these won't do it.
