DeMArci Gear: Yay or Nay?(8 posts)

DeMArci Gear: Yay or Nay?WCC
Sep 25, 2002 4:44 PM
WCP has some of this stuff on sale. Ive never used it. Hows the quality? I know WCP usually seems overpriced to me, so I am wary, but this looks like an ok deal on some of this winter stuff. WHat do you think?

It's not bad, but there is a certain funkiness to their clothes that has put me off in the past, and their sizing seems inconsistant with other makers. I definitely prefer Castelli, Giordana, Nalini, and Santini over De Marchi. Their XL jerseys seem to run small, their L shorts run large... I personally won't order De Marchi online, but those prices do look good... and WCP is right on my way home from work.... hmmm.....

Wow that must be nice... To live near a big supplier like them.
You can always check it out 1st.
Yeah on size I needed a large jersey same as some Euro stuff.
I am only a 40 chest but that is large euro I guess.
The material on the LS jersey thermo shield I think? is really nice. The jacket is a stretchy but warm light material. A real deal at the current price of 59
The one I bought was WCP logo wear but is in reality the DeMarchi.

Looks like I might need to take a long luch break or a detour on my way home tomorrow.

They have a funky shop... C40 frames hanging from the ceiling everywhere you look... old TDF videos showing on TV... and something like a card table with a cash register on it for checkout.

I picked up a pair of DeMarchi bibs from Long's (Russian national team) and I like them. The chamois is a bit stiffer than, say Giordana, but for about $20, they can't be beat.
Yay for me.look271

I have a DeMarchi LS jersey-really nice. Love to wear it when it gets cooler outside. (Old Ag2R colors-really bright!)
re bibs fair, shirt gooddzrider

The bibs fit me nicely and are well put together, but the chamois is kind of thick and wrinkly. I like Nalini Chicos for a few bucks more at BikeJerseys.

I have a short sleeve Body Glove shirt made by DeMarchi that I like a lot. It fits me well and the fabric is comfortable on hot days.
