Should I size up a cycling jersey?
We have sold cycling jerseys for almost 15 years now online. Our advice is if this is your first cycling jersey, go one size up from what you normally wear. Every single person I've ever met, when they purchased their first jersey ever, they picked a size too small. Im talking 100s of people here. Every one has purchased their first jersey too small.
Do cycling jerseys matter?
A cycling jersey will give you certain advantages over a plain shirt. I cannot think of a single advantage to a plain shirt besides the up-front cost. However, the durability will make t-shirts more expensive in the long run -- let me explain. Cotton shirts will get soaked every single day. The nature of cotton will make that shirt eventually wear out and stink. Any graphics on the shirt will fade, seams will come apart, and when you get hot, you'll be wearing a soaking wet garment. A cycling jersey will have a zipper that allows you to regulate cooling, it will have pockets in the back for your phone and snacks, and it will be made out of material that stands up to getting soaked and will dry very quickly. There is truly no better investment on the bike than a quality bike jersey.

Improved ventilation mainly on climbs. When you're going fast, the ventilation isn't as necessary. But when you really start climbing and you're on a steep incline, the ventilation is great. It also helps with jersey changes and getting them on and off.

I'll tell you a little secret. Most new cycling bib-shorts are tight like girdles. Like they literally cover up your gut. So they key to looking good in a bike jersey is wearing tight compression bib shorts.
How long should a bike jersey be?
If you look at the bib shorts, the pro's usually have a sponsor logo right on the back of their shorts near the top of their butt-crack. So your jersey should come down to right above where that logo is. Any longer and it will cover that sponsor!

Can you wear a backpack on a road bike?
I would discourage the use of backpacks, messenger backs, crossbody bags, fanny packs while on a road ride. These are distractions. You need to focus on your riding and the riding of others around you. If needed, try a saddle bag or stuff as much as you can into a bag mounted on the bars. There are other options besides a backpack. Also, it's going to get soaked in seat.
