Review: So the jersey tends to run a little big, whoopie-do. With loose sleeves and long torso length you get a lot of bouncers off the looser jersey.

I love this jersey. I was playing today in 37 degree weather with just a T-shirt on under it and I WAS NOT COLD! It works in the summer too. In the summer I just wear it by itself. The fabric is made of a rip-stop material that seems to be really durable, it breaths pretty good, and is just thick enough to take a hit well.

Now, my ONLY complaint, about this jersey is that the neck and arm cuffs are not elastic at all. They don't stretch much if at all, and have kind of a loose fit. It would be nice if they stretched and then were a little snug when you put your head and arms thorugh them. I always feel like I might rip it out when I put my head through the neck-hole putting it on because the collar/cuffs aren't elastic. But it has held up just fine. Been washed many times and still has good color. IMHO if it had the elastic collar and cuffs it would be a 10, but because it doesn't I give it a 9. THe neck collar is nice and thick though so it helps deflect/stop neck shots. That's a nice feature that I was specifically looking for when I bought this jersey.

Oh yeah, the digital camo is AWESOME. It blends in like no other camo in just about every terrain. Utterly amazing how effective the digital camo pattern is.

Conclusion: I think I paid like $36 shipped and it has been good money spent.
