Verified Buyer Reviewed by s1y from Bay Area on Friday, July 24, 2015This is an excellent light weight jersey. Its is form fitting so ensure you check the sizing, I have 32in wait so went for the medium and it fits great. As mentioned very light weight great for summer rides, breathes well and drys quickly. I like the sweat-proof zippered pocket on the outside of the rear middle pocket for carrying valuables.
I purchased the jersey in black, which is predominantly black with white stripes down the sides of the torso. The jersey is long in the back and has rubberized "pearl izumi tags" on the edge of the tail that aid in stopping the jersey riding up went bent over the handlebars.
Overall a great jersey, a quality level that I would not have considered without the discounting of the STP.

Reviewed by Cleaner from Florida on Tuesday, August 6, 2013The fit is "Euro" cut. In order to fit my shoulders correctly I need a large but this size is a bit loose around the waist. It is not flapping in the wind but it does not fit skin tight as it does in the chest. For reference chest is 40" and waist is 30.5". It is snug until below the ribs. I have this issue with most "Euro" sized jerseys. The pockets sit lower than many jerseys and the drop tail is long. This seems odd when standing but the pockets are easily reached when in the drops on the bike which is the design intent. The sweat/water resistant zip pocket is nice if you want to carry Mp3/phone etc.
The materials are very lightweight and mesh inserts assist with ventilation. This is definitely nicer construction and materials than the Asian manufactured products offered by PI. The zipper is locking and enables opening the jersey one handed when flipped up. Retail pricing on this is in the stratosphere. STP offering it at point where the value proposition works for me with the discount.
Reviewed by Merlin Death Rider from California on Friday, June 28, 2013I ordered 1 size up, 5'10" 154lbs coat size 40R, the large fits perfectly, maybe a tad bit loose but prefer it that way. Don't worry about black as color does not seem to be a factor in performance. Rode today in 106F and felt like it breathed incredibly well. The aero fit is great for descending, no flap noise or fabric movement, very sleek.

Reviewed by knull from TN on Wednesday, June 6, 2012This jersey is for the serious cyclist and serious cyclists are very thin. If you have a BMI of 22-26, go one size up, if you are over 26, don't buy it.
Also, the price seems a little steep. It's beautifully made though.
The picture is also wrong - the black is mostly black with small white stripes on the side.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cody T from Tucson, AZ on Saturday, December 31, 2011Great cycling jersey - bought to match my PRO Octane bibs. Got a great deal on Sierra, otherwise it would have been too expensive for me!
Wonderful high-quality materials, but tight Euro/race fit isn't for everyone. It is true to size, however, unlike European brands.
- Best Uses: Just want to look good, Matches Octane bibs
- Cons: Expensive if not Sierra, Tight fit isn't for all
- Pros: Great Fit, Style, Wonderful materials
