Great jersey for a decent price. Fit is somewhat snug, but certainly not constrictive. I normally wear XL (with a 17 in neck) and ordered an XL. (I believe other reviewer with an 18" neck ordering an XL was off a size). These shirts are most likely designed to fit tight so when your moving at 15mph+ they don't act like a big sail holding you back. Bought the orange and was happy with appearance. Might not be a total fashion statement, but in the cyclist's world's context of tight, spandex-like shorts, don't think that should be a reason for significant detriment to ratings. My statement is more "Look at me so you don't hit me with your car" rather than, "Look at me, I'm beautiful"

Let's start with the good first: picked it up for way less than retail, build quality seems good, material is nice, STAYS COOL even though it is too baggy. CONS: THE SIZING. This is not "semi-fitted." Nike Dri-Fit apparel is semi-fitted. If you are built like the model in the picture, this jersey will be HUGE around your waist. (I would wager they are holding the abdomen taut with clothespins in the back, a trick I use as a wedding photographer). This is vanity sizing at its worst. I have a 41 inch chest and a 32 inch waist @ 170#, so per the PI sizing chart on their website, I ordered a medium. The chest is semi-fitted. The arms are semi-fitted. But I could carry a watermelon in the abdomen area. It is so loose, sitting fully upright on the bike causes the jersey pockets to swing away from me 2-3 inches. If you're in good shape you will NOT be able to solve the problem by going a size smaller either (the medium length is correct for me @ 5'10", but more importantly the shoulder seams are in the correct spot based on the chest sizing). And as other reviewers have mentioned, it seems very short in front for its size, and there is no real keeper elastic at the bottom. If the elastic at the bottom actually snugged back up, both the bagginess in the ab region and the shorter length would be way less noticeable. I'll keep this jersey around for spring when I am thicker from lifting all winter and not riding as much. EDIT: AND the reflective "Pearl Izumi" logo fell off the back after 50 miles and 0 washings.

I am new to road cycling and purchased this as my first jersey. I'm 5'10, 168lbs and purchased a medium. It fits snug, and has plenty of length in the back. It wicks away moisture very well and feels comfortable for the duration of any ride. I intend on atleast purchasing one more, possibly in a size large this time though just for a somewhat different appearance.

Pearl Izumi has 3 different quality levels, Select, Elite, and Pro. This Quest jerseys is part of their Select product line, which is their cheapest and lowest quality product line. Compared to their better jerseys, the Quest has a lower quality fabric (heavier fabric doesn't breath or wick as well) and a lower quality construction (not as contoured). Still, these are more than adequate for weekend warrior and recreational club bicyclists, as well as commuters, etc.

Sizing is looser than Pearl Izumi's better jerseys, which is good if you have a beer belly or flabby arms or muscular shoulders. You don't have to size up like you have to with racer-cut jerseys, and then worry about flappy fabric or the length being too long. I am 5'9" 170 pounds and size medium fits me fine.

Compared to other brands, these Pearl Izumi jerseys are a big step up from similarly priced jerseys from Canari or Nashbar or Performance. Seams are double stitched for durability and mostly flat knit on the inside for comfort. Extra panels sewn in to the shoulders and sides help the jersey fit better so it doesn't bind or flap around when you're riding. The fit is not skin tight, but the fabric is stretchy enough to be comfortable for a wide variety of body shapes. Extra long genuine YKK zipper adds ventilation on hot days.

This isn't the best bicycling jersey on the market, but it is one of the best values.

Color Name: Screaming Yellow/BlackSize Name: MediumVerified Purchase
If you are previewing the screaming yellow color and wonder if the color is not accurately depicted on your monitor (when I selected the color it looked greener than yellow to me)then know that it is indeed the neon yellow you are looking for. I like the gray on the shoulder pads that offer some minimalist, modern styling to the shirt. The elastic on the back waist is good for hugging a close fit. The seamless zipper is fine and barely visible up close when zipped, although on the inside the closed end on mine is zipped, but altogether hangs loose, so it may scratch your belly, but it's no big deal. I am 5' 9" and 150lbs and I ordered a medium and it fits fine.

I have not yet used the elastic pockets on the back, but they do not scrunch up when empty and don't negatively effect the fit.

Do not wash this product with all of your other clothes. I have noticed some fraying in the threads all ready that I suspect is happening because other garments tumble against and snag on the material.

Bicycle grease easily smudges noticeably on the neon yellow.

Jersey is affordably priced ...quality is good for the money....I have more expensive jerseys , but this is my favorite because of the comfortable fit....I'm 6'2"...about 205....at least a 44 .....the XL fits perfect... ( not tight ...but just close enough as you would want a riding jersey )...I have since bought other colors....Pearl Izumi usually has a good fit for me....

Just got this jersey from another site. I love it. I was a little worried about sizing as I have a disproportionately long torso, and a fairly broad chest. I opted for the XL (the shirt size a usually wear) and it fits great. It was snug without being constricting. It seems like the sizing charts posted online are fairly accurate. I should also point out that other brands of cycling jerseys are likely to fit differently as some are cut tighter than others.

Remember that cycling jerseys should be tighter than your normal clothes, if you're not comfortable wearing a jersey that fits snugly than you might want to consider another athletic shirt that will wick away moisture - like the adidas Men's Climaspeed Lightweight Short-Sleeve Tee perhaps.

I love having the pockets in the back. They are great for carrying my phone and some snacks for the longer rides.

I would definitely buy this again.

I am 5-9" and 150 pounds, and just received the small which fit fine except for the length.

First, I read many of the amazon reviews, including a comment where a rider with a large belly thought it was too short. It is way too short for my comfort and I do not have a gut at all, and although my torso isn't short I'm not especially tall in that area. If I raised my arms at all the shirt rose above my navel. Now that I look at the shirt on the model picture I can see how short it really is and would do the same on them. Afraid if I moved to a medium it might be longer but too big overall.

Second, I missed that the bottom of the shirt doesn't have an elastic band - it is loose fitting like a t-shirt. Maybe that's OK for someone on a cruiser bike, but if you are on a road bike you need the elastic to keep it against your body so it doesn't hang down.

I started cycling a lot recently, but have only 1 jersey which was a gift and is high quality. I see the differences now and if you are into any riding beyond a simple cruise you may not like this. I like Pearl Izumi stuff, but I will have to move up a level or so and check out the Attack jersey.
