Built for heat, the Elite Pursuit Jersey from Pearl Izumi provides In-R-Cool technology to maximize moisture transfer and evaporative cooling on your ride. The breezy Elite Transfer fabric is engineered to wick moisture off of the skin and transfer it to the jersey's exterior for fast evaporation. The fabric also provides UPF 50+ sun protection for your skin. The Direct-Vent panels provide constant ventilation as you ride and the full length zipper offers further adjustable ventilation. Built for a streamlined fit, the jersey is equipped with an elasticized gripper on the back to keep the hem in place.

Great fabric...very soft.
Jason Tabanan
Fit was OK, except that I wished the sleeves were a bit longer (from the perspective of a lanky person).

I'd gone away from pearl jerseys and shorts for several years. However, I'm back with this jersey, since they finally got rid of cuffed short sleeves. This jersey feels like it was custom made for me. it is form fitting, but not tight. the sleeves actually are just slightly snug, and maintain perfect fit when in drops or hoods, or tops. The pockets felt like they'd be a bit too loose and the stuff may bounce which is a peeve of mine. I carry a c02 cartridge, 2 tire levers, blackberry leyzene inflator, patches and a 10 dollar bill. When in the cycling position, or climbing out of saddle, no movement of pocket contents whatsoever.
the fabric feels very good. the full zip goes all the way down and up easily, which is great when approaching a climb on a very hot day.
The only thing that might improve this jersey would be slightly more mesh material down the sides for the hottest weather.
I'm a 42 in mens suit sizes, 6'1" and 185lbs and purchased the white with green in Large. Highly recommended I'm really happy with this jersey.

If you have a belly or have weightlifter's bulk, or big guns, you'll need to consider sizing up. If you carry tons of stuff in your pockets, I'd recommend a saddle bag.

I live in South Florida and my typical ride is 20-25 miles. The PI Elite Pursuit Jersey is very light, has an SPF rating of 50+ and keeps me cool, even in the FL sun. I like that the zipper goes all the way down the front, so I can open it up as much as I want. The arm pit mesh keeps air flowing, even when the zip is closed. This one has the traditional 3 back pockets and I prefer that. My chest is 43" and a large fits well. It's very well made and I like the RED!

Finally, a jersey that fits true to size. At least for me, I'm not fat but I'm not tiny like a pro cyclist. A lot of jerseys are either 'race fit' and wear super tight if you're not 125 lbs or 'club fit', meaning made for chunky recreational riders. This seems to be a bit in between, so it won't flap around on a fast downhill but it won't be ridiculously tight for casual rides. For reference I ordered a large and I'm 5'11" 165 lbs.

Color is a nice bright red. Cut shorter in front to not bunch up, and the rear pouches are well made. Hard to find any real fault with the jersey, buy away!

I have to start off with saying this was my first cycling jersey. With that in mind, please take what I have to say for what it is. Sick of wearing a simple cotton shirt for my 30-50 mile road rides, I decided on getting a real jersey. This size L jersey fits me perfectly (6' tall, 170 lbs), it wicks sweat perfectly and is seriously light and comfortable. Miles above just any old shirt. The rear pouches are perfect for storing gels, your license or whatever you may need to take with you on a cycling trip.

I would easily give this shirt 5 stars had it not been for how fragile it is. The fabric seems to run easily. Not to the point of losing function but definitely to the point of looking shabby in parts (only a few small areas so far). Looking at other jerseys, most summer ones seem to be made of the same material so i bet it goes with the territory. With that said, when this one wears out I would not hesitate to buy another, I am extremely pleased with it.

Bad things first:
[1] 'Elite' would imply suitable for serious rider. However, sleeves are cut to fit when arms hanging down, not raised forward in the normal riding position. So sleeves bunch up under arms pits, making them too short and are always feeling too tight. OK if you spend more time on podium, not OK if you spend more time in saddle.
[2] Loose fitting pockets. Rear pockets OK to stuff things in but wary for the coin or phone, there pockets aren't elastic enough to hold things tight.
[3] Zip a bit flimsy
[4] Gripper dots (not the full rubber waist band) on tail are a bit pathetic, don't really work.

Good:
[1] SPF50+ is good.
[2] Coolish in the heat, since though lightweight seems to keep breezes out.

Only used twice, keeping for casual trips to town only now.
Wouldn't buy again.
Don't recommend :(

Jersey was generally up to expectations. Features as described. Light-weight, works well in hot, humid environment. Fit was OK, except that I wished the sleeves were a bit longer (from the perspective of a lanky person).

The letdown was that the zipper on my particular jersey was not sewn on well. It appears that the jersey was not properly straightened out when the zipper was sewn. When the jersey is zipped up and put on a flat surface, the jersey does not stay flat. Halfway down the jersey, there is a "bump" upwards along the zipper length. This "bump" still shows when the jersey is worn and is more pronounced when one bends forward when cycling. I expected better QC than this. I didn't return it though because to me, it's more of a visual aberration which doesn't bother me too much, and doesn't affect how the jersey works for me.

Color Name: Mykonos Blue/WhiteSize Name: X-Large
I just bought this jersey last night on the clearance rack at REI(blue). It looks great and feels great! This only my second cycling jersey and far better than my first. I am 5'10", 215lbs. The XL fits well even though I have a small guy. I also have larger shoulders and the sleeve length doesn't bother me like others have complained about.

This jersey has great wicking ability and temperature control is easy with the full length zipper.

This jersey is a "wear it and forget it"! I love it and you will too!
