Someone failed to read my original post. By about 3x the cost.



Not knocking the product, or your company, but seriously?

I have one of the inexpensive aero techs and it's been just fine. I'm 5'7" 210 lbs and wear an XL. If this helps I also wear an XL in a Nike drifit t shirt

Considering the original question was about bike jerseys, and I'm reasonably certain Wal Mart doesn't carry bike jerseys, yes, really.

Actually, the Wally Worlds in two of our neighboring cities both carried Schwinn branded bike shorts and jerseys in both men's and women's. Quality wasn't bad for a big box store product. They also have a lot of jerseys through their online store with free delivery to local stores.



http://www.walmart.com/ip/Schwinn-Classic-Men-s-Jersey-XL/16539933


Personally, I've had good luck with Primal Jerseys. I got my first one through the Tour de Cure and later our local cycling club ordered through them. I now have four Primal Jerseys in their "sport" cut which is comfortable on my Clyde frame without being loose. I wear L or XL t-shirts in most athletic brands and the XL Primal Jersey's fit well but close, I could wear the XXL without it being overly baggy. Their pre-printed Jersey's run $55-80 but you they have a bargain area on their website where they get down to around $35. Our LBS has their jersey's through Primal and retails them for $55. Their shorts are pretty good too, though the chamois is a bit thicker than I prefer.

The other brand that I have found fits my shape (5' 11", 230# broad chest and a bit of a gut) is the LG Club fit in XL. I also have one very plain LG jersey I got off a discount rack, I have no idea what the cut is supposed to be but the M actually fits me without being stupidly tight. It fits like a L club fit in any other jersey I've owned but has almost no taper at the waist. Someone suggested it might be a MTB jersey.

Sorry, I didn't think you know what the topic was.

I have a 4 or 5 in different colors I picked up at walmart all for under $20 each. They are not specifically for cycling(more like soccer)but they do the job quite nicely. They are not as loose fitting as a t-shirt but not as tight as a cycling specific jersey. I also have a number from gore, LG, and pearl izumi(some cost over $100). Often times, I prefer the nike 'jersey' I got at walmart.

Thanks to the above poster for the links to the 'real jerseys'

Fair enough

I just figured the OP specifically spoke of jerseys with pockets on the back so the notion of tech t-shirts was sort of off base.

Didn't realize WM carried any kind of cycling jerseys. I wouldn't really recommend it, figure they'll fall apart or wear worse than actual quality jerseys and then you're stuck buying another jersey at a higher price to replace the one you saved money on. Though I wouldn't necessarily recommend spending $200 on a RoadHolland jersey either. Cripes. That's ridiculous.

Anywho ... I've had relatively decent luck with Nashbar jerseys ... can't remember the exact model, but they weren't quite a "club fit" but not "aero" either.

I'll never recommend Nashbar shorts though. Ugh ... never had any luck with those.

I have used http://www.love2pedal.com/ and find the fitting to be accurate. I also like/have nashbar,aerotech, canari & Mt Borah.

All that I have are in your price range.

Same here. None of the ones I bought from wally world have pockets. As far as quality, they do get old looking after a year. My gore is 3 years old and looks great still. You get what you pay for.

Good price. Plain, but I'm ok with that, too. Made in USA...
Yup, mine worked out very nice, no longer wearing it because it was a 5xl version and I am a 1xl now lol.
