Let me preface this with the fact that growing up in FL and living in SC, I do not like cold weather! Today on my ride it was 50 degrees. I wore a long sleeve ceramic base layer, large, long sleeve G-Shield jersey, medium G-Shield bib tights, AV 100 winter gloves and wool socks. I was not cold once during the ride, nor was I overheated at the end. Everything was perfect! Thank you Giordana!
Great mid weight top
I was looking for a jacket to wear with laying in the 40 to 60 degree temps. This is it. Comfortable, the cold air penetrates less, the fit is tight, but loose enough to layer. The color is bright for at night riding.
A winning jersey
Great material, perfect for those cooler summer days or early morning rides. One improvement area in the bottom of the jersey is a bit loose. Doesn’t wrap as snuggly as the FRC short and long sleeve summer jerseys
For me this ideal for the mid 40's (my limit) with a couple of base layers without the bulk (or expense) of a jacket. The CS rep said that the GShield jersey would be as warm as the FRC thermal, but more wind resistant and compared to my older generation FRC thermal, he was right. I ordered L based on past brand experience but ended up downsizing for a better fit. The usual great Giordana quality and attention to detail, ended up getting the bib tights too.
The Goat of winter Jersey's
Starting temperature 42 degrees and overcast. The GShield is extremely awesome. I will definitely be purchasing more. Not bulky, Great fit, true to size I’m 6’2” 180lbs. Kept me nice and toasty. Not to hot not to cold extremely comfortable.
