How's the material? I have a few Primal Jerseys, and honestly, the quality sucks. The material is this cheap itchy feeling stuff.

The Scheel's website is for the entire chain and the website blows. The store itself is huge, at least the ones in WDM and Iowa City - two floors each in both of Iowa largest malls.

Oh ok, I won't waste my time then. But if you ever come down to So California, bring me a pair of shorts, Double X!

The shorts/bibs seem to be of good quality. The only thing I don't like is the Scheels advertising on them, but for the price I can live with it! I haven't tried any Primal Wear jerseys. The most recent PI Ultrasensors I've seen don't seem as nice as mine that are a few years old, at least the chamois padding doesn't seem as dense as before.
