I find this shirt perfectly comfortable before, during, and after rides, in terms of both look and fit. I haven't been happy in a tight-fitting cycling jersey for a few years now. I actually I'm a mountain biker, not a racer, and the print of the Dirt Surfer says it in a tasteful, understated way. I've worn it to work on a couple of occasions. On hot days, my sweat evaporates better in this than in a tighter-fitting jerseys, and dries quickly at the end of a ride. I love this shirt so much that I have it in three different colors!
I bought this jersey for a cross continent tour, and wore it for at least half of 3000 km in high heat and humidity. Usually 2-3 days of all day wear between washes, never smelled bad, dried fast, no fade. Snap front allows for one hand adjustment of ventilation. Buttoned up there’s little flap (at least at my touring speed). Solid shirts, I’m buying more.
Looks great and fits really well on me. I'm a 5'8" 155 pound racer and the medium size is perfect!
It's super wet and cold in New Hampshire right now so I've actually been wearing it while training indoors. I've found it to be cooler and more comfortable than the kit shirts I normally use.
Planning to order the charcoal color Dirt Surfer next.
Fantastically stylish shirt! Slightly heavier fabric than the western style shirts but still an excellent technical shirt that works well on the trail and looks great while out on the town. Dried surprisingly fast given its slightly thicker weave.
The only wish I had was that the cut was a little more slim for the XL. Otherwise, great shirt for commuting - I almost feel bad taking it on mtb rides and getting it dirty because I wear it to work so much.
