Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rdleztravl from NoCal on Monday, October 5, 2015Very breathable and may not hold in enough heat for when it is less than 55 degree and blowing at 20 knots. True medium athletic fit. Appears well made.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by David with Wheels from Southern Michigan, USA on Thursday, October 2, 2014I'm very happy with the quality, fit and comfort of this jersey. I'm 6'2", 210 lbs, 18% body fat and have ridden 2,900 miles this past spring and summer training and participating in 2 century rides. Our summer has been unusually cool in southern Michigan this year (2014) and our autumn is continuing that cool trend. It was time to add a warmer long-sleeve jersey to my cycling wardrobe but I didn't want the loose fit of my Pearl iZumi Quest long-sleeve jersey so I've been watching for this pro jersey to go on sale. I purchased the XL size and it fits great---it is very soft, has plenty of sleeve length for my long arms and fits nice and snug so there are no chilly drafts.
For those readers who are new to Pearl iZumi, they divide their cycle clothing into three general lines. At the bottom is their "select" line (my Quest jersey is part of this line) with a relaxed or loose fit---which is great at the beginning of the season and on hot training days. In the middle is their "elite" line with a trim athletic fit. At the top is their "pro" line with a snug fit for athletes with low body fat. I wanted that snug fit to prevent unwanted chilly airflow against my skin. This pro thermal cycling jersey met that goal perfectly---I feel no drafts even on fast downhill runs with this jersey. In fact, it has a drawstring at the back of the neck that allows you to tighten the collar, as desired, to seal the neck tight against the wind.
There was some confusion about the color of this jersey. According to the description, it is available here (Sierra Trading Post) in only one color option: white with "shadow grey" (dark grey). I've seen this same jersey at other stores and that's exactly what it is. But, if you study the photos here closely, you'll see that only the front chest pocket is shadow grey. The back of the sleeves and the rear pockets are black---not shadow grey. The pictures here are accurate. The jersey I received is indeed white with black and the only shadow grey part is the chest pocket. That was great because I didn't like the white with shadow grey version and really wanted to buy the white with black version (but Sierra didn't have it). This one seems to be a combination of the two and is very attractive.
The black on the back of the elbows and forearms was very important to me and it was a strong reason for my choice of this model of thermal jersey. That's because I do mostly long-distance riding and am down on aerobars for comfort most of the time. My forearms rest on elbow pads attached to my handlebars. If you sweat as easily as I do and you use aerobars, you'll know all too well that their black elbow pads are notorious for darkening the forearms of many light-colored long-sleeve jerseys and sun sleeves. No amount of washing and cleaning the elbow pads will prevent this---I've tried. And the problem exists regardless whether you use cheap or top-of-the-line aerobars. The black panels on the back of these sleeves not only look good, they prevent any such ugly stains from appearing on the back of your sleeves.
I also like the fact that this jersey breathes---it is not a barrier jacket. This gives it a wider temperature range. Ideally, it feels best to me in the 50's°F. However, you can still wear it comfortably up into the low to mid 60's. If you cycle in the 40's or lower, you'll probably want to add a barrier jacket on top and maybe a base layer on the bottom.
A few more features: The chest pocket has a small hole in the back sort of like a button hole with a stitched edge. I think this is probably intended for running a wire between a chest strap with sensor pads to a heart monitor carried in the pocket. Nowadays, I don't think this is necessary because many good heart monitors are small, run a long time on a battery and attach directly to the chest strap.
There is a small zippered pocket in the back on the outside of the middle rear pocket. It is protected by a moisture barrier so you can carry small items like a wallet or money without sweating it into a soggy mess on a high-exertion ride.
Conclusion: I highly recommend this Pearl iZumi Pro Thermal Cycling Jersey to any cyclist with an athletic build who wants a top-quality, comfortable and super-practical top for rides in cool weather.
