Great bike top
Absolutely love this top, it is stylee and a bit different compared to most cycling tops. Also it has that real kiwi feel about it. Also the fit is great, because it is fitting it makes me feel warm on those cold mornings.

Beautiful and functional
This was my second piece from the YMX line and I've had it a few months now so I've had the chance to wear it a number of times. Like the hoodie I purchased last summer (which is the same pattern as the green long sleeve cycling jersey also featured here), and which I bought to wear after yoga class and for casual wear, the fabric in this feels absolutely fantastic against your skin. It's cool in the heat and has a good SPF rating. And, living in Texas, finding cycling gear that can stand up to the heat is a key for me.
I make my gear 'cross train,' so I'll be wearing this in a 10k run next weekend and come summer, it will also be a great sun guard for kayaking, so even though the jersey's aren't inexpensive, I feel like I get my money's worth from them.
I am 5'6 and, when I ordered this a few months ago, I was about 20 lbs heavier than I am now (160~ish then), so I ordered the large, not being sure how it was going to fit around the middle (my, um, problem area - we aren't all waifish 21 year olds, after all). The fabric is quite stretchy though, and after losing 20+ lbs, the jersey is loose in the bust and chest area, so it's not the most aerodynamic fit in the L anymore (but hey, at least I'm more aerodynamic now). I had also read reviews about the sleeves being tight and I was concerned about that; while snug, the sleeves were never uncomfortable. The sleeves are long for me, so for you tall girls, that's a plus.
I can now comfortably wear a medium jersey, but I'm not giving this one up because, on top of being functional, it's also beautiful. It just doesn't fit skintight, but that's fine. All of the YMX tops, because they fit snugly, show every little ripple and bulge, so factor that into sizing.
Because the fabric is quite thin and cool to the touch, it's not my choice in cold weather - I'll put out a thermal jersey if the temps are under 50 - but it works well layered under a rain or wind jacket.
I haven't had the chance to wear in really hot weather, but since I really watch my sun exposure, I plan to try to wear it into really hot weather even though it's long sleeve because it wicks moisture well.
I think the patterns and colors in the YMX line in general, and this jersey in particular, are vivid and beautiful, although this jersey is not as bright orange as I was expecting it to be.
You will stand out wearing YMX. I ride several times a week and get comments from women riders every time I am wearing this jersey. And, since I ordered this one, I've added several more of their jerseys to my wardrobe. I like them that much.
