I like long sleeve jerseys for summer riding. I'm Irish/Dutch OK? I tan after sunburn number 6 or 7.
I am 5' 4" and got a medium. It's very fitted and cute I like it. Will wear with bibs - it is thin enough that any muffin top will show.
Pros: long sleeves but light material is good for summer. Material is very soft. The red is very red, not pink.
Cons: the wrist stitching is not stretchy, I think this is annoying for long sleeves and reminds me of putting on work oxfords. The pocket in the back zips, which is good for keys and stuff, I think it is hard to un-zip while riding so if I put food back there I leave it unzipped.
So- for price why not?
Fit - little tighter than I expected. I am 5'4" 145 lbs and got medium. I am usually a medium, sometimes a large. The medium is pretty snug and the stretchy panel in the back is the savior here to make them work. Large would probably have been fine, but some winter weight comes off and med will be fine.
Material - stitching looks good, single seam then serged edge, I think it will hold up. Not sure exactly what the material is, it's lighter and softer than you'd expect for mtn biking shorts but comfy.
Cons: Useless tiny front stash pocket (maybe could fit 1 key in there). No belt loops, no front pockets or back pockets.
Pros: I do think they're cute and will ride in them. Not as durable looking as dakine or tld shorts.
