William M.wrote a review of Assos SS.mangussta_s7 Jersey on October 20, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Very nice fit, if you get the right size. (5'11" 41" chest is size XL for me). Nice collar -- not the ultra-tall collar Assos has installed on most of their other jerseys this year. Now for the bad news: FIRST, the fabric on the back of the jersey is very stretchy. If you load a water bottle into a back pocket, the fabric will stretch and sag and the water bottle (or other heavy item) will end up hanging below your backside or falling out on the ground. This is different than any Assos jersey I've owned in the past. In fact, I purchased Assos in the past because the supportive material made it possible to carry full water bottles in the rear pockets without any worries. This is disappointing. SECOND, Assos means it when they say this jersey is designed for use with a base layer. Even with a skintight fit, if you don't wear a base layer, you may fall prey to dreaded nipple chafing. I haven't had this problem with any jersey in a very long time -- and never with a well-fitted jersey -- but I've had the problem with this one. I won't wear it again without a base layer. That's a shame, because I bought the jersey for hot weather when I would rather not wear a base layer. Assos makes the best bib shorts in the industry. Jerseys, not so much.
