Familiarity: I've used it several times

I liked the subtle design and fit of this jersey enough to buy a second one when it went on sale. This is definitely a stretchy and lightweight warm weather jersey, but I'm curious how it'll do with a base layer underneath when the weather starts cooling down. I like how breathable the fabric feels and it's ability to spread moisture out. The jersey actually feels better once you get the sweat going. The sleeves stay in place and are laser cut with a modern length seen on higher end jerseys these days. As for the fit, I'm 5'7", 151 lbs, and purchased a M. I typically size up with Castelli, but I took a chance and am pleased with the fit. My jerseys were made in El Salvador if that matters. The fit is close to skin and feels like a race fit jersey except for the slightly lengthier cut at the back. The armpits and chest may feel a little bunched while standing, but feels comfortable in the riding position. Especially, in the drops. I think the cut is anatomically designed that way. The rear pockets are easily accessible for a form fit jersey, but I'd prefer an angled entry for the two side compartments. Overall, a great training jersey for the price!

I really, really, really like this jersey! Like others have said, this jersey feels perfect when in the cycling position because of how it's cut. The sleeve length is just right and it doesn't ride up my arms like other jersey brands do. The stratus material loves to breathe. The more you sweat, the jersey starts feeling like second skin. I just wish it was a tad bit shorter in length. I'm 5'8" at 149 and I got a size L. The chest measurement from the sizing chart is just right, so size up!

This adapter does what it's supposed to. If you have roof racks on a short roof, like I have on my Honda Civic, this is worth the investment. It widened the spread of my load bars to around 27" and added a significant amount of stability to my bike carriers. The best part was that these went on sale a few days after I received them, and Backcountry gladly credited me the price adjustment. Free shipping, great product and excellent customer service makes me a happy camper!
