Great jersey for the price

Paired with a summer-weight base layer, this jersey kept me comfortable during the night time leg of a 24-hour race this fall. Air temps in the mid-30s to high 40s. I used a wind vest for high speed bombing runs down the mountains.

Full zip equals full ventilation. Wicking was excellent. The reflective bits were a nice touch in the dark.

Sizing is race fit. People with really long torsos may want to try it before buying. It's cut to fit while riding, so it may feel a bit short while standing. I think this is OK since it reduced bunching. Also, this fall weight jersey seems to run one size smaller than its summer weight counterpart. I'm 5'10", 42" chest, 31" waist, average torso length wearing a large (I wear a medium in summer weight). Garneau says they account for fabric thickness in sizing, but I found differently. Also, watch the velcro on your gloves--it can snag the fabric.
