1. Got a Pearl Izumi Kodiak jersey for Christmas. For those of you who have one, how cold does it have to be before you wear it on the road? Do you usually wear it with another jersey underneath? Just wondering because I havent had to wear it yet.

2. At what point is the difference in price difference between Ultegra and Dura Ace brake lever/shifters not worth it?

Thanks.
I've got a Kodiak and like it.bimini

It breaths well. I wear it without anything underneath when the temperature is below 60 and start adding layers such as jerseys and polypro underwear as the temperatures go down. I use it routinely at 20-40 with just a layer or two underneath.

I picked up a Kodiak jersey recently and have found it to be comfortable (if not a bit too warm) with just a wicking layer underneath in the mid 40s. I expect that it will continue to do the job at least into the mid to low 30s. Added a windbreaker-type top layer yesterday for a ride that started at about 42 with a stiff, chilly wind. Very comfortable. So far, this seems to be a great jersey and I'm extremely pleased.
Yep. A great jersey.KG 361

I have had similar experience with mine. Add a wicking LS jersey and a t-shirt and you can be comfy as low as 30 or so-add a wind-proof vest and go even colder.

25F I wear 2 jerseys, arm warmers and PI K jersey on top. If still cold put a vest on top.
30F you can do undershirt, jersey, a-warmers.

Hey...Santa must shop at the same place. I also got a PI Kodiak Jersey for Christmas. Bright yellow. I am assuming you mean the heavyweiaght version w/ brushed ultrasensor. I wore mine with 2 layers of wicking at 30 degrees with some wind. Stayed nice and toasty after warming up. great shirt. had one before but the zipper broke and sent it back. Zipper now much improved.
