Anybody have Giordana clothes? Good ? On sale at ProBikeKitMVN

ProBikeKitUSA has Giordana jerseys and bibs on sale for really low prices. Just wondering if their stuff is as good as Voler's. For those prices though, I think I'll get some anyway just to try them out.

They're still holding up very well, albeit with a slight amount of "pilling." But I should mention that I have quite a few jerseys and wear them in rotation, so each one doesn't get worn every third day or whatever. Still, 10 years is 10 years.

(Sometime this past summer, a riding buddy gazed at one of my old Giordana jerseys and said, "You can tell a guy who's been riding a long time when every team and sponsor listed on his jersey is no longer in the sport.")

I have a jersey which is about 2 years old. Well made and has held up well.

Only irritant to me is the instruction not to put them in the dryer (also true of Voler, at least their shorts).
Had 3 items. 1st 2 were great values. Can't speak to the 3rd.dzrider

A jersey that I had owned for a few years when I got an Assos jersey and wore long after I threw the Assos jersey away.

A pair of bib shorts that stretched out after about 3 years and I continued wearing over thermal underwear for another couple. The stretching may have been exacerbated by my gaining then losing weight, but I'm not sure.

I just got a pair of bib tights from PBKit and they appear to be made well, but I haven't worn them enough to comment on their durability.
shorts great, jerseys so-soDaveG

I think the basic Giordana shorts (RT800) are excellent. I presume the bibs would be as well. Light but well-wearing lycra, basic fake leather chamois without any nasty stitching or over-hyped multishape stuff. Their jerseys tend to fit a bit short in the torso (I'm 6'3") and don't seem to wick as well as many less expensive jerseys.
