This is an average quality jersey that is way off sized. I wear a medium shirt and a large in cycling clothes (as I don't want to be wearing gaudy tight clothing at age 48). This was the tightest shirt I've ever tried on. It took about 5 minutes and extra help to get it off without tearing. The size large is really a small.

Really like this jersey as it is quite comfortable, keeps me cool on hot summer days, and looks great. Specifically wanted to chime in regarding the sizing since that seems to be a big issue for people. I am 5'10", 145 lbs, chest 38-39" and was torn between medium (which I get for everything else) and large based on other reviews. I went with large and really like the fit. In all honesty, a medium probably would have worked if I wanted the best aerodynamic fit. Still, the large fits quite closely to my body, just flaps a bit when the medium would probably be skin-tight. If I could do it again, I'd still order large. My advice is follow the size charts, especially chest size. Also, this jersey probably wouldn't work for somebody with a big belly.
Here are the correct sizes for the Castelli Podio Cycling Jersey: S (Chest 35-37),M (Chest 37-38),L (Chest 39-41),XL (Chest 41-43) ,2XL (Chest 43-45),3XL (Chest 45-47). Sorry for the inconvenience.
