    Jersey question

    I have yet to buy a jersey, but Performance is having a 20% off sale, so my excuses are pretty much gone. I wanted some opinions on a few jerseys, as I've never used on before.

    Descente DryZone

    Louis Garneau

    PI Quest

    Sugoi Pulsar


    Between the four, price isn't really an object, I'm just looking to spend under 50$.

    The Louis is "relaxed" fit, whereas the others are club. Just how relaxed does relaxed tend to be? I certainly don't want it flapping around all over the place.

    Out of the four brands, I've only had experience with PI, leg warmers and gloves, and I love them, but I'm clueless about their jerseys.

    The Descente contains polypropylene on the inside, but wouldn't two layers make it warmer?

    Those are the only clear differences I can see, your opinions and insights would be much appreciated.
    This is super seriously.

    Club fit and relaxed fit are pretty much analogous, I'd wager. You'll have a hard time going wrong with any of those brands. Stop over thinking it, buy one that you like and go from there. It's a personal preference, and the only way to figure out what you like is to spend time in jerseys out on the road.
    The bums will always lose.

    I agree with ADSR, you can't go wrong with the brands you have listed. Look for the best deal on the most comfortable/highly breathable fabric available. The "Club Fit" offers a more generous/relaxed cut in which you can order more true to your original size. To name of few specific high quality fabrics-Primal Wear uses (Speed Pro Advanced) which is awesome fabric or you could go with Louis Garneau's (Airdry) I know of a great online retailer Sprocket Threads www.sprocketthreads.com who has a wide selection of performance jerseys at great prices. I found them online a few weeks ago and they are currently running a special of free shipping on all orders over $50 and an extra 10% off using coupon code: decpromo I didn't find this special in the coupon code finder so I thought I would pass along another great site to check out. I hope this helps, Cheers.

    Ah I knew I should have waited! It was a one day sale though, I ended up going with the Louis Garneau. According to their sizing I'm an extra small...thanks guys, way to make me feel big. At least PI was willing to call me a small. Thanks for the offer though.
    This is super seriously.
