After having tried several jerseys at the local sporting goods store, I finally decided on this Pearl Izumi Attack jersey based on its fit and overall comfort. Of course, ordered it here coz it was cheaper than at the store. Quick thoughts:
1. Fit - I am 5.9", 162 lbs, 31 waist. Medium fits well. Doesn't cling to the skin to look weird, but not loose to flap around either. Just the right fit for me.
2. Comfort - The jersey holds up well for rides of say 20-30 miles (I haven't done more than that so far with this jersey). The material doesn't get heavy from sweat. The full zipper is a great thing to have coz it makes it much easier to remove the jersey after.
3. Use - the pockets are convenient and don't sag with the usual items that I put in - cereal bar, cellphone, some cash. The back doesn't roll up either when I'm riding bent downward.
4. Zipper - I am not a fan of the small size zippers they use for cycling jerseys coz I feel they go bad very often. I get that feeling every time I zip or unzip this jersey, but fortunately the zipper has held up well so far, 3 months into use every weekend. Hopefully it will continue to function well.
Overall given the material, fit, utility, and comfort of this jersey, I highly recommend this jersey. I hope they made the same jersey in the same price range with larger brighter prints. Pearl Izumi's jerseys with larger prints are ridiculously priced (around $200 a piece). I personally would feel safer wearing the printed jerseys when riding, but the brighter colors in this style (red, yellow) aren't bad either.
