Beautiful cut and fit, as to be expected by Gio. Sleeves are fitted, but with plenty of room for arm warmers underneath without any bunching or pulling. Fabric is a soft black, not a bright black, which I think looks very elegant and the interior is not the usual fleecey-soft stuff. I'm most impressed that it actually delivers on the claim to wick moisture and retain heat. Wore it today - 50F, overcast, humid, yucky - with the Gio bib tights and Castelli arm warmers under the sleeves. I was warm on the descents and dry on the climbs. Don't think a jersey could perform better than this. Beautiful. Would buy it again in a heartbeat.
