Thanks for the links- I had been to the first link, but it didn't tell me too much about the brand...

As for the review, I can't speak for their bibs but the jersey I got fits like a luxury glove. I can't wait to put many miles on this jersey:



The fabric is just sublime, and the fit is flattering. I have a Pearl Izumi jersey that just fits weird, with the zipper forming little *****s out of my stomach. This one fits much better.

I guess I was just curious if it was a recognized brand in the road cycling world, or more of a specialty here in the U.S..... I do like that it isn't a major U.S. brand, and doesn't have frivolous logos all over it.
