Default Jersey Question?

The jersey I bought from Nike zips all the way down to the belly. It is
high quality and features the Dri-Fit material.

Where can I get jerseys like the Pros that unzip all the way down. All the
ones I bought before at Performance and Nashbar only unzip at the very

most
halfway down.

Where are those cool jerseys for sale. Those are also great for working
around the house, especially around the house when you can unzip it quick
and take a dip in the pool. Sure be nice now seeing 104-106 degree days we
are having here now.

thanks,

Bruce

A guy in our group fell and broke his collarbone last week. When the
paramedics arrived, he told them to pull the jersey off over his head
because he had paid so much for it. They ignored him and cut it off.
Anyway, it started a discussion in our group that the jerseys with the long
zippers must be for when you break your collarbone---thus enabling you to
"save the jersey". I haven't seen a jersey with a separating zipper, so I
am thinking you are referring to one with a zipper about 18" long.
www.performancebike.com has them--the ones I am looking at are made by
Hind.

I have a Castelli jersey with a zipper that goes all the way down.
However, I don't think it's this year's model, so getting one might be
tricky. Here's the store where I got it from, including a photograph:

As far as I can see, it's a good feature, so I fail to understand why
all jerseys are not like that.

www.coloradocyclist.com sells several full-zip jerseys.
Also check your local bike shops. These aren't hard to find.

Long sleeve summer coolmax jerseys are harder to find. I didn't mention that
I only wear long sleeve coolmax because my arms cannot tolerate the sun and
I would rather do that then put on sunblock on the arms. I do use sunblock
on the face and neck, legs. Riding for 6 hours between 10am and 6pm here on
100+ days is not only hard but you need to take caution of course. I still
love the long sleeve summer coolmax jerseys around the house working as
well. The trick it to find long sleeve summer coolmax with full length
zippers, and that's probably what will be hard to find.

I can tell you that my local bike stores are having their long-sleeved items
on sale right now. Also, we have a Pearl Izumi store nearby that is having a
good sale on their long-sleeved and some short-sleeved stuff. Check
locally.
