I have two in the 2XL size. The fit is somewhere inbetween my 2X primal wear and a regular 2X T-shirt.

lakkdainen: I have a couple XL primal wear's and it appears the XL Falconies will be a little looser. What i'm wondering is how the material and construction compare to these.

I'd say they're on par material wise, maybe a hair cheezier with the stitching. I'd expect them to last just as long. IMHO, with Primal Wear, you're mostly paying more for the fancy prints.

I was hoping this was the case. I'm just wanting everyday generic jerseys.The Primal Wear and Champion Tee Shirt stuff has ruined me for cotton. I only wear cotton in airconditioning now.

I'm the same way, can't stand cotton in the summer period. The falconi jerseys are definitely a step above the champion dry fit stuff for cycling. It's thicker, wicks more, and really gets the evaporation going. Perfect for what you need.

I grew up in NH, and am a huge wuss in the Cincinnati heat/humidity. Cycling jerseys are a godsend. I'm pretty sure the main reason I like cycling more than any other exercise is because there is always a cool breeze.

I bought 4 Falconi Jerseys from www.love2pedal.com $44 for two. They are a 1/2 size larger than my Primalwear. They're single layer instead of lined. They're a good everyday Jersey but not the quality of the Primalwear.

The two I bought from love2pedal are good enough and the price is hard to beat they are more relaxed fit than the other jersey I have so I am a bit more comfortable wearing it around the park and such.

How is the sizing? I have a 55 inch chest and in most cycling jerseys I am off the chart or 6x. I wear a 2 or 3x in regular t shirts....

Thanks for your interest in our items.

Here is a link to the size chart for the Falconi jerseys:

http://images.channeladvisor.com/Sel...art5x2010b.jpg

According to the size chart, 55" chest may be a little big for the 5X.

You might try borah.com or aerotechdesign to see if they have something larger.

Jerseys are supposed to be form fitting and the material stretches. I suggest the OP go for it.

BTW, here's me and my 55 inch chest in a 4x Love to Pedal jersey:

Profgumby I wear a 2xT or 3x in t-shirts and such and the 5x Falconi jerseys I have fit very well, they are not super snug and are a bit more "relaxed" fit than my other jersey, I will try and snap a picture when I get home tonight for ya.

All I ever wore since I started seriously bicycling was jerseys and shorts from Love2Pedal. I've had my clothes for 2 years now with continuous machine wash and no problems yet. The rubber Falconi patch on the shorts falls off almost immediately but the shorts are tough by my standards. I may stop machine drying them and let them hang dry. I like the price too.

I throw jerseys in the dryer with other clothes. Shorts are always hung to dry.
