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):

|pink stitching on sleeves|
|drawstring along bottom edge of jersey, one of the two stoppers|
|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 www.pistard.cc to see all their products.
