Nothing in the reviews so... has any tried the Performance Classic Coolmax Jerseys? They're selling them for $20.

Quite a deal... or... You get what you pay for???

I have a few jerseys from them and from Pricepoint. They are both about the same and are OK. They are a little bit lighter than a Pearl or Sugoi or any other $70 jersey, and the holes in the fabric are bigger. But for the $20 they are worth it.

I have probably 6 performance jerseys; the different colors are also each slightly different fabrics (?). the XL is a little larger than typical--don't seem to be actually 44-46, but maybe a little bigger. i wash all my jerseys in delicate and let them hang to air dry, and fold them nicely when done. my others are holding up better than the performance, but i still wear 'em all. would i buy them again? no. why? team jerseys (euro cut) suit me better. i like a snug fit, and they seem to breathe a little better, too.

for $20--not bad, if you've got a few twenties to spend and are wanting to build or bolster your on-the-bike wardrobe. the next jersey i buy will probably be a castelli--the fit, performance, and wear seem to be the best out of my others. the $65+ price tag is worth it (and i'm a cheap bastid, too, so that means somethin'!).
Thanks for the help! nmt-bill

They have a bit looser cut, but wear well and wick well. I've had several. Plenty good for basic rides and at $20 less regrets when it's time to toss them.
I like em...koala
