This jersey is exactly as described: a long sleeve SUMMER-weight jersey. That's what I wanted and I'm glad to say it delivers. I got the forest green and it has a beautiful no-fuss, minimal look to it. The fabric is super lightweight and ideal for long days in the saddle where you're probably going to sweat off your sun protection and won't be able to put on new stuff. By blocking the sun and absorbing my perspiration, it actually has a cooling effect when riding on a warm day.
And while it's certainly not going to be a very warm jersey for cooler temps, Paired with the wind vest it's perfect for the shoulder season. Mornings where you head out and it's 60deg And you don't want to wear a thermal, but need a little something extra to keep the chill off.
Complaints? The fabric is very delicate. Got a few snags the first time I washed it, (Which are very visible on the forest green fabric because the interior is a lighter color). So, definitely zip it and wash it inside out. The pockets also seem very loose. I wish one of them had a zipper or were a little tighter fitting to hold my stuff more secure.
If you're looking for a jersey with more room in the mid section and arms, this Quest one is for you. I might have liked it if I found it when I first began cycling, but now that I have "little in the middle" and scrawny arms I prefer the fit of the Peal Izumi Pursuit jerseys I've purchased in the past. The material also felt a little heavier and thicker. If you're just starting and in a cooler climate, this Quest jersey may be a good deal.
Overall good shorts. The leg opening gripping, that other reviewers have liked, tends to pull on my leg hairs behind the knee. I have to roll the hem over to prevent this from ruining my rides. I have 32" inseam and the length is a bit long so that's something I can get away with and will just have to deal with it in the future. I've been riding in 90+ degree weather with heat index in the 100s. The light weight material has made these rides bearable. I do 40 mile rides and haven't had any issues other than the pulling of the leg hairs.
My first pair of bibs for cycling. I've always been reluctant to wear bibs due to the need to use the bathroom and I didn't want to have to take my jersey off, etc. These are stretchy and designed so you can pull them down without taking your jersey off.
