Familiarity: I've used it several times

I own several pairs of the golden FRC 2013 bibs. I read the bad reviews from 2014-15 so I waited until now for an upgrade. Another disappointment from Giordana. All the negatives mentioned by another reviewer apply.

The compression is way too much, making them feel much tighter. They are not the same size as previous FRC.

In addition, the mesh on the back of the bibs is far less breathable than on my 2013s. The result is that they stay a lot wetter than they need to be.

In my case, after using and washing them several times, the stitching started coming loose in 3 places. They are falling apart after ~10 uses. I expect far more from $250 bibs and I hope Giordana realizes they can't coast forever on the FRC brand with this kind of products.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own 4 pairs of FRC from 2013 so this is my reference point for comparison. The new model does not improve in any way from 2013. But it's significantly worse in several ways:
- the material on the shoulders feels cheaper
- the zipper, instead of being made of metal, is made of plastic and has trouble engaging. You have to be really careful when zipping up the shirt.
- worst of all, the front of the shirt is semi-transparent. What?

I'm staying away from Giordana until/if they figure out their quality control. I expect far more from a $200 jersey.
