This and an LG bib shorts are my go-to kit this summer. Never feel too hot in it and Vegas temperatures in the summer mornings are in the 90s. It is mesh, so it's transparent, but mostly on the back. Fabric is delicate so maybe gentle wash, but never machine dry. Great looking race jersey and highly visible.

This is an excellent bib (I paired it with a summer LG jersey with the fluorescent yellow/black) for the summer. Highly breathable. The only slight adjustment I would make is to the crotch area--it's a little too compact there. Other than that, great looking kit without breaking the bank. I'd recommend.

I have to admit I was expecting a little more, even if this is an entry-level bib shorts, because it's Giordana. The material quality and feel are good. However, the size runs a little small. It is very tight in the front area and the chamois as well isn't particularly comfortable. I find myself having to constantly adjust. It's too bad, because paired with my EXO jersey, it completes a great looking kit. But, I just can't go on long rides in these bib shorts.

[I actually bought this jersey through Amazon through Backcountry, an affiliate of Competitive Cyclist. I love this jersey so much I had to cut and paste my Amazon review here.]

I'm perplexed why this brand isn't popular in the US. I never heard of it and never see other cyclists wearing this brand.

Seeing this jersey on sale convinced me to give it a try. And I am not disappointed.

The look and feel and quality of this jersey is exceptional. The color is deep and vibrant, design simple yet stylish. The deeper back pockets are more useful than other jersey's. The racing cut is flattering.

The craftsmanship rivals other Italian cycling brands. According to De Machi's website, they've been around since the '40s and I don't understand why its not more popular with discerning cyclists. I will definitely buy this brand again.

The material feels great, there's no disputing Giordana's quality. I went up a size and it still had a tight feel. I'm usually large and exchanged for an extra-large. The only issue for me has been the chamois. After about an hour or two on the bike, it gets uncomfortable. Seems a little bit thinner compared to American brands.

The jersey looks and feels great. The craftsmanship is outstanding. The only issue is that the size I ordered is way too small and tight. Traditional Italian sizing. At minimum, I recommend ordering one size up regardless of what the sizing chart outlines. I'm going to exchange the L to an XL (fingers crossed) and hope the fit is right. UPDATE: The XL had a nice race fit for me. I'm 5'10" 175 lbs 39" chest.
