Pearl Izumi Select Pursuit Jersey - Long-Sleeve - Men's

Early season performance.

On early season race days when the temperature isn't going to rise as much as you were hoping, it's helpful to have a long-sleeve jersey to reach for that isn't the club fit thermal jersey you wear on chilly fall training rides. Pearl Izumi makes the versatile SELECT Pursuit Long-Sleeve Jersey for days like this. The SELECT Pursuit lacks the added bulk of brushed thermal lining that defines most cool-weather jerseys; instead, it's made with the same SELECT Transfer fabric as Pearl's short-sleeve race jerseys. The material rapidly pulls moisture away from your skin as you sweat in cool temperatures when you can't afford to overheat or suffer a clammy chill.

Pearl constructed the SELECT Pursuit with a contoured, race-ready silhouette for a fit that won't leave room for bunchy or baggy material to create drag as you attack the group. The full-length front zipper and elasticized gripper on the rear hem are simple touches that allow you to control ventilation and keep the jersey in place so you're free to focus on racing. It's finished with three rear pockets for the standard essentials you'll need during longer races.

not a fan of the 40" chest sizing

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I like PI jerseys. I have 2 ss jerseys that have lasted for years. Read previous reviews RE: sizing. Went with the L based on size chart. LOL! I like my jerseys tight but man, torso fit find but as I zipped it up.....felt like being stuffed. Mobility/movement was fine. Sleeves a bit too long as I had to roll them up ~2". Final result it is just to uncomfortable.

Putting the Pearl in Izumi

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Whether its running or cycling I'm a fan of Pearl Izumi products. Not always the least expensive, quality and fit are usually among the best. They nailed the colors, just the right amount of flair and safety without going over the top. I would agree that fitment is off. 6' 190ish lbs wearing the XL, the torso length is too short and the sleeves are too long. As someone who has long arms it doesn't make much sense to me, quite a bit of fabric bunched up.

lightweight long sleeve jersey

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: medium

I wanted to like this jersey. Clean design. Long sleeve without fleece fabric that's often too hot. But runs really small. I'm typically fine with pearl izumi medium for a race fit, but I couldn't even zip it up.
