Review: Pistard Jersey, Part I

My thanks to Luca of Pistard,, for sending one of their short sleeve light jerseys for me to review. Pistard is a Milano based company dedicated to creating a high-quality collection of technical cycling clothes that are also comfortable and fashionable.

The jersey, designed for summer riding, comes in white and black; I chose the white to review.

Upon opening the packaging the first impression I had was how beautifully designed and detailed the jersey is.  It shouldn't be surprising given that it is designed and made in Italy. The technical mesh fabric has a very comfortable feel and is designed to keep the body cool and offer natural UV protection, and is anti-bacterial and odor resistant. Photos I've taken of the jersey I received (click to enlarge):

five pockets, right zippered pocket is waterproof for phone or ipod, reflective piping

Within the next few days I will go on a test ride and report my findings in Part II of the review of the Pistard jersey. In the meantime visit to see all their products.
