Quality of Cannondale jerseys?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Quality of Cannondale jerseys?

I'm looking at the Cannondale Cadence jersey at Nashbar, it is really cheap. Does anyone have any experience with Cannondale products, and how they compare to other companies (Pearl Izumi, Canari, etc)?

Also, are Jersey sizes pretty much equivalent to Men's T-Shirt sizes?

Thanks

I have a cannondale jersey from performance that I like. I've had it about a year and have no complaints. Good quality jersey.

I've found that jersey size is pretty close to t-shirt size. I generally wear a size L t-shirt and my size L cannondale jersey is a good fit.

I'm tired of fancy Italian jerseys that don't fit me well - the XL is still too small but XXL is too large. I just bought an Assos CSC jersey and should have sent it back. Cannondale XL's are perfect and they hold up well. My Bostrom 32 jersey is presently my all around favorite,

Cannondale sizing seems to be similar to the standard US sizes. The stuff that I have bought from performance was well worth the price and is holding up well. Just Jerseys so far.....

Cannondale makes a wide range of jerseys. Their better stuff (Vertex and Chrono) is very good. Their lower level stuff is pretty mediocre. You get what you pay for. Baggy mountain bike jerseys fit like T-shirts. Road racing jerseys are much snugger, especially in the waist.
