Anybody here have Pearl Izumi jersey/jackets? Can you tell me how do they compare to Castelli? Is there a source to get Castelli jackets at a good price?

I have two PI jackets, but no Castelli. Fwiw, I am 5'11", 42" chest, and the Large jacket fits but is tight, as a cycling jacket probably should be. The XL fits like a normal, slightly loose jacket should. I wear the XL casually around town b/c it looks and feels good, I'll wear the L when I cycle this fall/winter. Maybe you can infer from that how a Castelli might fit.
Colorado Cyclist had Castelli jackets for $60. I don't havebill

either, but I do have a vest made with the Zephyr 2 material, and it's good. The PI has some more features, too, if I recall, like removeable sleeves, if you're into that sort of thing. Castelli stuff is usually great, too, though.
