Excellent windbreaker for a lot of layering flexibility. Fits well for 5'9" 150 lbs, longish torso. I love that I can use it without arm warmers, or even with warmers inside or outside the sleeves. The windproof front layer blocks cold wind well, and the mesh panels are cut, stopping me from getting hot and sweaty. The mesh panels stretch over stuffed jersey pockets and nothing binds in a stretched out riding position. The silver gray is thankfully not super shiny like the product photo. It'll take up 2/3 of a jersey pocket and is tiny enough (3.3 oz!) to take to the ball game or traveling. No grippers, but waist and cuffs are elastic and they stay put.
Iï¿½ve only had a chance to wear this jersey twice and crash on the last fitting. Itï¿½s destroyed but the first time out wearing it, itï¿½s by far the most comfortable top Iï¿½ve worn to date. Seamless sleeves and itï¿½s really soft. Iï¿½m a small and couldï¿½ve used an XS for a true race fit. Sleeves werenï¿½t too long but I believe itï¿½s designed for a more comfortable/club ride fit. Sizing runs true to size and although I couldï¿½ve sized 1 size down, the torso area wasnï¿½t too loose fitting in the aero position. Recommended
5-10, 160 lbs ordered medium and it fits snug but well. I like these straps better than other bibs (PI,Castelli, even), and really like the minimal seams. Chamois is comfortable on its own and even better with a bit of cream for longer rides.
As always, Pearl Izumi products, including the Men's Select Liner Short, are high quality. Thanks to Western Bikeworks, the shorts are also great value.
The shorts are very comfortable with a large chamois pad for big dudes like me. The fit is exceptional They are so nice to wear, I sometimes use them as outerwear, not underwear!!!
