Once Again...WOW!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Abosolutely wonderful. Great fit (I am a "curvey-figured girl" , not fat) and this jersy fits great, very-very comfortable with room enough for shoulders/bust/long arms! The only improvement needed might be the zipper area: there is no fabric behind zipper; it would add more comfort & wind blockage. The wind does cut right through this jersey, again, not quite the quality of the FR-C, but also not as $. Can just wear a Gore Windstopper base layer underneath) and I take along in my pack at all times the Gore ALP-X 2.0 rain proof jacket (it's ultra light, easily packable, & also helps cut the wind).
The color is just as depicted, a beautiful plum-purple, and the accent colors are very sharp...very flattering, just what you'd expect from Giordana! Worth it at any price! 4 Stars for the lacking of protective material behind zipper, and for the amount of air passing through fabric.
