Full disclosure: This item was purchased by me and this review is subjective to my experience with the apparel.
I ♥ this jersey.
No, really, I do ♥ it.
I love it so much, I have 2 of the 4 colors it comes in and wish it came in more. It comes in white, lime, magenta and laguna (pictured).
It is perfect for my brick and running training. I hate bricking in a bike jersey (feels so heavy to wear for a post-bike run), so I always feel I have to change my top before my feet hit the pavement. This jersey works well for both and I no longer feel the need to change. The material feels more like a smooth dri-fit type textile than a polyblend jersey. It just feels good on. I can already tell this top is going to be a great alternative to a tank, even in the hottest part of the Houston Summer. I will definitely wear it for my running/marathon training as well.
The hidden side pocket (though on the Sugoi website they say "rear pocket") is great to hold a key, iPod and gel or two. For a long bike ride you'd definitely need to carry a bento box for your "feed" and carry-alongs.
The jersey is very stylish. There are 2 princess seams in the back, making the fit very flattering. I also like the "Mandarin-ish collar" (you see it more when unzipped) and cap sleeves which offer more coverage than a tank, but definitely not as long your typical short-sleeved jersey.
As a larger, Athena athlete I find it very comfortable and well fitting. I feel the jersey is generously proportioned, but not overly so. My hips are 1" larger than size chart indicates, but the top fits me fine. I also appreciate the omission of elastic at the bottom of the jersey (yeah!), and did not experience a problem with the jersey riding up during my ride. I would also have to say this jersey would be great for power walkers and gym rats alike... its just that comfortable!
As far as technical apparel goes, it has a decent price-point. With my tri club discount at a local retailer I can get this top for less than $40, which is awesome for bike jersey I can wear for both cycling and running.
I give this jersey 4.75 stars. Would give it 5 if it really did have a hidden back pocket too!
