Excellent quality materials and construction. I have several icebreaker pieces and find that they generally run true to size.
- I am 6', 175lb, 40" chest 34" waist - and usually wear size large in the big euro brands such as Castelli and Assos, which gives a good, snug fit - no flapping while on the bike. In other icebreaker pieces - base layers and more casual items, I wear a medium...and the fit is perfect.
I tried a medium size in this jersey and it was too big by my standard - it flapped around some was and too long when in riding position. I ended up with the size SMALL, and it fits "right", in my opinion, to have the snug fit I prefer. To me that means no flapping, no sagging pockets, no excess material in the chest or belly when on the bike...
Center pocket is a little narrow but not unusable. Color is nice ("monsoon" = "grey"). The stripe looks yellow in the pics but it more of a neon green (which is a trendy color right now in cycling fashion, fwiw).
