I’m a dedicated recreational rider who prefers a jersey that has some pizzazz to it’s style and a slightly relaxed fit (i.e., I’m not into the current monochrome color trend and I don’t like feeling shrink wrapped just to reduce my aero drag by a few watts). This jersey definitely has it’s own unique fun style which I like (not silly nor garish). Otherwise it’s a pretty basic relaxed-fitting jersey (think a $70 Primal jersey but with a more elegant, rather than goofy, style). I have a cyclist’s 125lb. build with a 35” chest & 29” waist and this in a sz. Small fits somewhere between “slightly” and “fully” relaxed. Yet despite this the fit follows the shape of my body well and the material “drapes” nicely (due to it’s heavier weight?) such that it doesn’t look like a sack of potatoes on my skinny frame. OTOH there’s no gripper at the waist, the material—while soft feeling—has a “three season” weight to it, and there’s no mesh panels or gripper arm bands or a zippered security pocket (in fact the only nod to modern jersey design are the wide/snug arm bands which I am thankful for). So this would not be my pick for longer or faster road rides in warmer weather. Instead I’m adding it to my “gravel” gear drawer (for gravel riding I prefer darker colors and a fit that says “relax and smell the roses”). I also don’t have a problem gravel riding in the summer heat while wearing a three-season jersey. Buy this if you want a fun jersey with a refined relaxed fit (or a tighter fit if you fill it out better than me). Just don’t expect a modern/technical aero-race design or material that is sheer and super-stretchy/breathable. I’d rate it two to three stars due its its old-school design/materials which makes the $95 list price seem a bit steep, but am bumping it up due to its unique style and a more-refined fit than a typical relaxed-fitting jersey.
