With the Quest Long Sleeve Jersey, Pearl Izumi has tried to deliver a classic three pocket long sleeve top. It is designed with a semi-form fit which will make it a comfortable companion whether on the roads or over the mountain trails. It is made from UltraSensor fabric which uses a moisture transfer construction designed to take advantage of one way capillary action. You may very well ask what exactly does that mean. Imagine a straw which can draw the moisture up away from your skin, but will not allow any moisture to reach it. It comes with a three-quarter length hidden zipper so that you will be able to ventilate, but you won't have any issues with the hem staying solidly placed on your waist when the jersey is open. To add to that secure fit, the hem along the waist has been comfortably elasticized. It has three rear pockets so that all your gear will be safely stored away. Pear Izumi added reflective piping so that you'll be safely visible to cars when the sun starts to go down. The Pearl Izumi Quest Long Sleeve Jersey comes in Black, Screaming Yellow, True Blue, True Red and White. It is available in Small through XX-Large.

Strengths: Semi fit- not skin tight of course but still contours upper muscle definition, looks great! Light and breathable material, sleeves are long and cover wrists. 3/4 zip. I’ve worn it on two rides so far
Weaknesses: The rear pockets are a tad bit baggy, but, they don’t look too bad though. I don’t know if I would say this jersey feels the worth of a $60 retail.
It’s a nice jersey, get it on sale if you can as I don’t feel its worth $60; but Pearl Izumi is a brand name you do pay for. I believe any type of rider would benefit from this product!
