Eleven Gear jerseys - How's their quality?

Notices
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

Eleven Gear jerseys - How's their quality?

I'm looking for feedback from people who have used the jerseys from Eleven Gear such as the Republic of Anaerobia, Poseur Charlatan, etc. When I was doing a search previously, someone had commented that the jerseys don't wick particularly well, which I thought was kind of odd. So, for those of you who have used them, what are your thoughts? Thanks in advance.

I own and use a Republic of Anarobia jersey and have had no problems. I wore it in the Bike Ride Across Georgia in June three times and at Ragbrai in July once and it wicked just fine. Looks good too.

It's like all the other lycra jerseys I own, which are legion.

I'd like to see where the knock was put on Eleven Gear. Link?

I went back and tried to find the post, but I couldn't. It was just one post on Bike Forums where the person said the jerseys didn't wick well, and attributed it to the fabric (100% polyester). This surprised me, since I've seen the Eleven Gear jerseys mentioned on here frequently, and that was the only time I recalled seeing something negative about them. I'll look again tomorrow, and send a link to you if I can find it.

I live in southeastern PA, near Philly. I've thought the Poseur jersey would be good for times when I ride to the Philly PRO race, or to the Univest Grand Prix.

By the way, I have the Rep. of Anaerobia jersey, with matching water bottles, and the socks (all decorated with images of red blood corpuscles). There are bibs that Eleven came out with recently.
