2008 Model No Longer Available
Pearl Izumi Quest Long Sleeve Jersey - 2008 BCS
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.
- Wicking Ultrasensor fabric pulls moisture from the body and provides breathability without sacrificing warmth
- Wind-cheating fit helps to reduce resistance and flapping
- Easy-to-reach rear pockets keep necessity accessible
- Reflective elements for low-light safety

i bought the short sleeve in this model and it seems that every time i wear it it starts to smell. i do not put them in the dryer or use any kind of softer. i have soaked them in white vinegar and water for about an hour then wash them in regular detergent. is there something else i can use to get rid of the smell?

Try generic head and shoulders shampoo. My husband's biking and soccer gear has had a nastiness that has stuck around for a long time until I was told about using pyrithione zinc (the active ingredient in head and shoulders). I got a generic bottle at Walgreens and washed the stuff in it (soaked for about an hour) and then washed in normal washer, hang dry. It really worked for us! Good luck!

Semi form fitting
October 16, 2011
Received two of these in the mail in Thursday and this morning it was in the 40's so I broke out one of the long sleeved jerseys and a jacket. I have a 50 inch chest, so I had ordered the XXL, and was surprised to find the waist area so loose (38 inch waist). I may have to have them taken in on the sides as they are quite loose. When I returned home, I looked at the description and it listed as "semi form fitting" so I guess it is caveat emptor and I should have read the description more closely and not have been so blinded by the price.
