Closeout Deal on Merino Wool Cycling Jerseys

Was browsing the Sierra Trading Company's web site and found they are closing out on some Canari Merino Wool Cycling Jerseys. Almost gone. At $34.95 (you can get another 5% off if you are a new customer).

http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/,...e-For-Men.html

They have several other jerseys on sale, if you type "cycling jersey" in the keyword search.

Or you can search on just "cycling" and find 140+ items.

I can see that someone has been buying the jerseys, if not 50+'ers. Three different color/size combinations that were there two hours ago, are no longer available.

I think Canari tends to run small.

not a sale price, but I've been using these wool jerseys for a about a year now and I'm really happy with them. small company in L.A. wool's great for spring or autumn days that start cool then warm up but don't get too hot.

With the weather we are having over here- I looked at the site for other closeouts- They have a shell jacket that is ideal for those windy days aswell.

Thanks Tom- That site has some good -Cheap clothing on it that are worth looking at.

I love Sierra Trading for the bargains, the odd collection of stuff, and certainly not least because they state country of origin instead of the ubiquitous "imported."

I took advantage of my own tip and ordered some things.

Today if you search on ...
"cycling" you get 140 hits
"smartwool" there are 36 hits
"merino" gets 184 hits

Lots of neat stuff out there.

Oh, and if you search on "gary" you get "Did you mean Mary?"

That's a pretty smart search engine

Sierra Trading Post sells an oddball assortment of stuff at great prices -- we've been buying stuff from them for years. In the pre-Web days, we used to drive up to Cheyenne to shop at the outlet store.

They also have great customer service. I bought a pair of Santini winter bib tights in the fall and the leg zipper broke on the second ride about two months later. They took them back no questions asked. Its true that sizing on cycling clothing varies considerably so it helps that I am only 49 miles away and can make it over there in about 40 minutes.
