Here's what the Siroko SRX jersey looks like (as well as the new Pedal Mafia kit in the back):

Ryan you're running rim brakes. I just want to enquire as to your wellbeing - did you survive the ride?

I've been wearing Siroko SRX jerseys and have been happy with them. They are very lightweight, material is stretchy and form fitting and they are aesthetically pleasing with very subtle branding. My only complaint is that they tend to bunch up a little since they are on the long side while riding but it's not something you notice, only something you see in photos.

Are their sizing charts accurate? 84cm chest and 76m waist for size small, 90cm / 82cm for medium seems incredibly tight even compared to Castelli and Santini.

No, I'm a medium on their charts (90 chest, 82 waist) but I've been wearing a size small. There is a lot of stretch in the SRX Pro but even with that being the case, there is still bunching occuring when in the bike position.

Pockets stretch well and don't sag much for how lightweight the jerseys are (at least not like Rapha). They seem to hold as much as my other jerseys (like Assos).

Can't comment on the Siroko SRX. I've got the M3 ultralightweight and the M2 originals jerseys. I'd have sized down in the M3 for sure if I had that decision again. Sounds like the same situation as above as there is a lot of stretch in the M3.

Do like them though and will probably get some more from them next year

in this same vein of subtle designs, this is one of my favorites, sorry about the long hypertext -

Unfortunately, mine got torn up in a high speed crash, and I'd love to get a short sleeve or long sleeve size L to replace it. If anyone has a lead on one, I'd be appreciative.
