This is a great jersey at a great price! (I am actually thinking of buying a couple more.) It is well made from quality fabrics. The fit is excellent - it isn't designed to be tight, but it is by no means baggy - very comfortable! A design feature I particualrly like: instead of the typical double or triple open topped pockets across the lower back, it features a single zipped pocket accessed from the right side - easy to get at and no worries about losing stuff. I ordered the poison green version and as an added bonus, it matches my bike perfectly!
This jersey is good value for the price. I followed the Backcountry sizing chart and the fit is good. I have found the proportions a little strange - seems short at the front, however wearing bibs this doesn't prove to be a problem. I also find the neck to be a bit tight when the zip is fully up. Overall, I am satisfied - decent all round garment.
This is a top quality garment! I found the fit to be spot on - followed the Backcountry chart. The fabric, printing and construction are all excellent. I particularly like the full zipper. It's a bonus that when the zipper is fully up, I don't feel like I am being strangled - as I find with most other jerseys. There are definitely cheaper jerseys available - this one is a deal at the price! (Also looks very slick paired with the corresponding bibs...)
Firstly, the catalogue image for these shorts led me to believe that the front panel was red - it is actually entirely white - no red anywhere - black stripes and seat only. The construction appears to be good (Italian shorts made in Albania), however the white fabric portions are very lightweight - definitely need to wear something under these, or it's "showtime"...and that's with the fabric dry... The chamois is substantial, but not too bulky. It's placement seems odd - very far back. However, on the road it has no effect on riding comfort. I am 6'-1"/175 lbs/32" waist - the medium fits well - proportions are all really good. Overall, decent bibs.
These are a very slick pair of bibs - look great and are really comfortable all round! They appear to be well made (in Italy) from good quality materials. The chamois is well placed and not too bulky, but definitely substantial enough. The fit and proportioning are really good. I am 6'-1"/160 lbs/32" waist - according to the sizing chart I am a large and the large is perfect for me. (I would suggest that if you like a tighter fit and are under 6', then maybe a medium might be more appropriate.) Overall: a nice pair of bibs at an excellent price!
These bibs are very well made (in Italy). The fabric is top quality - loads of support, but enough give that you don't feel like you are wearing a sausage casing. The chamois is well placed and firm, without being too bulky. I often find that the proportion of strap length to short size is wrong (straps right/shorts too big or straps too short/shorts perfect). The proportioning here is perfect! Overall the fit is excellent. I am 6'-1"/160 lbs/32" waist - the sizing guide says my size is small... seems idiotic... but small is perfect! Bottom line: I have an excellent pair of bibs at an unbeatable price!
