Plain as Saltine Crackers. But fantastic.

No flashy graphics, boring colors, and... I love it. It's all about superior function, like the Smartwool Ph D socks. I have 11 road bike jerseys from 5 other companies, 100% synthetic and beautiful colors that I like a lot, but this odd blend of merino 77% and synthetic is far and away my best hot weather jersey. 98F today, humid, and with close fitting synthetic road jerseys, no matter how breathable they are, they still feel like plastic next to my skin. This merino jersey feels good, and way better than the others when I'm sweating. It is by far the most breathable of them all. It has the most progressive stretch and doesn't snag as easily as the synthetics. I am 200 lb, 44" chest, long torso and the L fits well for a snug fitting jersey. Would not fit if I was the least bit bigger in the chest. I recommend silver (really a light grey with dark red stitching and zipper) as it goes with any color and reflects more heat than the darker green. Swobo- please give this fabric some great colors/graphics and you would sell 10 billion of them.
