I would echo what's been said before here. The jersey I got has no zipper garage, has much shorter sleeves (not laser cut) than in the picture, and has no gel gripper at the back. The sleeves are short, and without grippers they ride up--and so does the front. It looks nice and the fabric is very light and stretchy, but it is not what's described on this page.

I had to send this back as the zipper was so cheap it separated the first time I tried it on. A shame as otherwise this is a good jersey--stylish and understated, with a close-fitting cut and a very light fabric that would have been good for hot days. Too bad as my other De Marchi jerseys are excellent.

This jersey looks great and has good materials, although I would echo other reviewers that the mesh on the arms is so thin that you probably need sunscreen underneath. Fit was good: not super tight but not quite a club fit either. But there was a manufacturing error on mine, where the stripes did not align between the font and back panels, giving a very weird look. Odd for De Marchi as I've found their clothes usually very well made.

This is a great jersey--the wool blend is on the heavy side, so it's great for those days in the 50s/low 60s in spring and fall when paired with a base layer and some arm warmers. Like most wool pieces it does a good job of keeping you warm in the chill but not overheating when the temperatures rise. The styling is understated but classic--it looks great and the workmanship is excellent, As always with De Marchi. The fit is perfect (I'm 5'8" and 160lbs and chose the medium). It's one of my new favorite items.

Very nice jersey--quality materials and feel, as with most De Marchi Stuff, and with a classic and understated design. It's a close fit, like Castelli in sizing, and the material is quite stretchy as well as thin. I wouldn't ride it into the high 70s--it's perfect for crisp mornings with a base layer underneath, or for layering. I got the Belgian design; a shame there was no British jersey (but two Italian ones on offer?) A steal at this price.

I really wanted to like this helmet. The MIPS plus the Koroyd make the design exceptionally safe, and it's beautifully made--the workmanship, materials, and look all mark it out as a premium helmet. But it sits very high on the head (a feature of the new MIPS insert, perhaps?) and I just couldn't get it to feel secure, even though I got the right size (medium for a 57cm head circumference). My Giro and Kask helmets both sit a little lower/have a deeper interior, and do a better job with this. I don't think this would be too much of a problem for riding without a cap/beanie underneath, but living in the Pacific Northwest means that kind of riding occupies about 5 months of the year. So back it goes, unfortunately.

This is a really nice jersey. It's a close fit--not exactly race fit, but not far off--and slightly larger than Castelli. I'm 5'8", 39" chest and 157lbs, and the medium was just right. The arms are a very stretchy, thin fabric, making it feel fast; the rest is a medium-weight, so great for early morning or late spring/early fall rides. The pockets are a good size and the zip is good quality. The workmanship is excellent, and it's good to have an embroidered logo rather than an iron-on that will peel off in the wash after 10 or so rides. It also looks great, with subtle and classic styling. A steal at $58.

I had high hopes for this, as I love Arundel cages. I might have had a defective batch, but there was no adhesive backing on most of the tape--so it shifts under pressure and is beginning to bunch up on the bar. I'm guessing I'll have to change it out very soon.
