POCRaceday Climber Jersey - Short-Sleeve - Men's

Stay cool when the going gets brutal.

Staying cool is essential when you're pedaling near the redline, and POC's Raceday Climber Jersey is designed specifically to breathe, wick moisture, and keep you from overheating on the toughest climbs and hottest days. Built from ultralight polyester, the Raceday almost instantly transports moisture from your skin to the surface of the jersey, where it evaporates quickly to keep you cool and dry. Mesh inserts under the arms provide extra ventilation and mobility for aggressive pedaling and hands-off-the-bars victory celebrations, and the Coolmax polyester and elastane cuffs and hem provide a snug fit for increased aerodynamic efficiency.

POC didn't skip out on features to make the Raceday fast, either; it boasts triple back pockets for bottles, gels, and phones, a full-length zipper for customizable ventilation, and a soft collar lining to keep your chin from chafing. The jersey is finished with reflective details on the collar, sleeve, and back, to take some of the worry out of dawn and dusk rides.

Too short

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

The fit for the jersey is strange. According to my measurements, I should fit well in a medium-sized jersey. And indeed, it fit well through the chest and torso. But it's weirdly short--about 1.5 inches shorter than a similarly cut Castelli climber's jersey.

GREAT FIT

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jersey is certainly made for the smaller framed guys. I am 5"10 and weigh 160 and the medium fits me perfect. The fit is very tight and I can tell that if I gain a few pounds it will not fit. Great quality as well!

Love the tight fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

Pros:
- I love the tight fit for racing
- Jersey length works well with my slightly shorter torso
- Breathable material
- Didn't rip when I crashed on it

Cons:
- Rear pockets which aren't quite deep enough for the elastic band to secure my iPhone 7

Good points made here by Brady W.

Fit is snug but snug is not a bad thing. It is properly sized to have nothing extra flapping in the wind.

And it does run shorter in length but again, that is not a bad thing. Nothing worse than a jersey that is half way down my arse ;-) when pockets being used, especially if you're short in the torso.

Generally a good jersey for warmer weather.

SIZE

Very tight on the arms and not good length at the back. Take at least one size bigger.

POC race day Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

5 ft 11 and 180 lbs. Bought large but it's a bit small especially short in the torso. Got anthracite white with Navy black. Fantastic look with many positive comments. Kit is excellent in very warm weather from temperatures 76 above

Great jersey

  • Size Bought: Large

This is an awesome summer jersey, great fit. I am 6'2 175-180lbs and size L fits perfect.

Get the right size and you'll be fine

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Extremely breathable and sharp looking. Definitely for a rider with a slim build and likes the pro style fit. Just order a size up.

Excellent quality a little small

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XXL

I know that POC runs small so I usually size up which I did this time as well. The shirt is great except the sleeves are a little tight. Excellent quality materials and will still be a great shirt in warmer weather or under a jacket.

Fulfills Expectations

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

The POC Raceday Climbers Jersey is designed as a very lightweight and close fitting jersey to be used when the temps and road go up. Although sizing is small, the fit is a bit boxier than Castelli. The material used has a high degree of ventilation without many extra features-3 pack pockets, full zip, period.I have used this jersey in combo with the POC Contour Air Foil bibs as a kit and they work great together.

Super tight fit! Don't bother ...

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

I'm 105cm in my chest, so I ordered a large and I can barely zip up and looks like I might need a extra extra large... so yeah don't bother ...

Crazy Small

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

My XL might, at best, fit someone who is a Medium. At best. At first I thought, "are these women's jerseys?" My 2 Pearl Izumi XL jerseys I bought at the same time as this jersey fit perfectly, so I can't blame weight gain or anything else.

fit is aweful

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

I'm usualy a medium, tried a large then an extra large and they are both tiny gonna have to return not gonna bother with the XXL
shoulders are tiny gut is baggy.

don't bother

POC makes nice helmets so I thought I'd try their jerseys. This is a case where I do not understand why a brand makes such a crappy product. The fabric is flimsy and un-technical, three sagging back pockets, just like any cheap jersey from Nashbar or Walmart I'm guessing. The sizing is ridiculously small as well. By the way the sizing charts I looked at on CC for any brand all show the same measurements for a large so why show them as if they're brand specific.
