They have some good prices on some of their winter clothing right now, but sometimes that just means that no one wanted it because it sucks.

Performance quality is very good. I have three of their long-sleeve jerseys, one the extra thick polypro, and they're great. Good for the price, too.

FWIW,

At least on the stuff i have bought. I have one of their bottles... which is labled "specialized" at the bottom, and two of their long sleeve plain jerseys. since they're so cheap i just put them in the washing maching, no problem.
also have a wind breaker... just plain sleeveless piece of plastic... what the heck, it works. the two jersey's and the windbreaker are all plain color, one red and two yellow. nothing exciting, but who cares, i can't see myself when i'm cycling anyway.

I buy a lot of stuff from Performance and I have no complaints. They take a beating on this board from time to time, but I generally find their clothes to be good quality. The best thing about Performance is that they will let you return anything, even if you have used it a while. E.g., I bought a windbreaker more than a year ago, but found that I seldom wore it because it was too large (my fault) and flapped in the wind. Brought it back this weekend and they gave me a full refund, no questions asked. (Keep those receipts, tho.) Fortunately, I have a store fairly nearby, so it's no trouble returning or exchanging things. If I had to do all my business with them through the mail, I probably wouldn't buy as much stuff.

Performance jerseys are made from a slightly heavier weight fabric than most. Their sizes fit like regular American size t-shirts (or slightly larger), so you don't have to worry about decoding European sizes that fit 1-3 sizes too small and seem to change from brand to brand. Most of my long-sleeve jerseys are from Performance because I could buy them on sale for $20 vs. $60-75 for the European logo jerseys. I don't have any Performance shorts because they just don't fit me right -- the legs are too long. However, I have some Perf leg warmers, which are great (only $15), and some Perf microfleece tights, which only cost $25 and are fantastic. I would snap some of these up if you need some tights, they are very warm at temps in the 30s-40s, but don't get too hot either.
