This is the best cool weather or winter jersey I have ever owned. I wear every time I go out in cool weather without the bulk many layers other than base layer. I can regulate my temperature much easier. I Just wish I could get a second one for the cool season workouts.
Anything below 50 degrees I prefer to have this jersey. If the temperature is below 40 with the wind blowing, I pair this with the Girodana short sleeve ceramic base layer, their G-Shirld armers, and their wind vest, I’m extremely comfortable without feeling the “bulky winter” layers.
Super comfortable, stretchy, climate protection. Exactly what I was looking for, non bulky protection and warmth when cooler. Usually a 3XL in giordana clothing but the fabric on g-shield is stretchier (maybe to accommodate layering) so I would suggest a size down. Sizing would be my only qualm. Water, wind and warmth protection is top notch and wears like a jersey instead of jacket.
This is my favorite piece of riding gear for colder days, especially if it's wet! It's SO warm and works perfectly for me. I don't like a full long sleeve until it's about down to 50 degrees so this is perfect for anything below from 50-65 as it keeps my core warm. It's so comfortable also!
I have purchased a G-shield jersey and shorts from my local bike shop previously, and XL shorts and L Jersey worked for me then; this time the L Jersey is too big, but the shorts spot on. In a normal world I'm M. Sizing apart, it is fantastic kit. Supremely comfortable.
