@Jed19: I have pearl izumi bibs and shorts and I love them. Wen I found this company through an ad in FB, I was sceptical at first. So I bought long sleeve jersey and pants, both in thermal and regular along with a set of Garmin Barracuda set. When I got them... Can't tell the differences in the material only the tag was not labeled Pearl Izumi.
the Garmin Barracuda set, I compared it to my customer, Barracuda Networks, original version and its the same. Except my customer was going to sell me the set for $250 when I only paid $50.
I'm not saying buying counterfeit is good or not, but remember all these high priced jerseys are make in China or somewhere in Asia. So if the QC does pass, of course these clothing manufactures will sell them at cost or with some marked up profits. Not trying to start an argument or anything, but just sharing my opinion.
if you do plan on buying, remember to buy one size up. I usually wear Small, so when ordered M it fits perfectly.
