LBS having a blowout sale, 80% off the sticker prices. Jersey has pockets in the back as well. Anyone using/have these jerseys? Makes me kind of wonder how much they're making off the regular price if they can afford to sell it at 20%. Unless they aren't making anything now.

As a side note what could be the difference between a really exensive jersey and a cheaper one? Material difference? Comfort? Something else? Just want to avoid spending more money if I buy something crappy to begin with and have to buy something good later on.

Edit: Last paragraph I context is 'in general'.

I agree. $15 for even a crappy jersey is damn good. I can't find a jersey that is new for under $25. Buy as many as you can and sell them on EBAY!

I really like the rear pockets on cycling jersey's. They are great for stashing food, food wrappers, tubes, whatever, and are easy to access while riding. My only jerseys are on sale cheapos, and the nicer jerseys I have gotten from charity rides, etc. I can not say how much the material makes a difference. I say go for it, you will not regret it.
