I get that it's supposed to be loose, but I returned mine because it was very large. I'd recommend choosing a size or two smaller than what you wear in a typical jersey. I should have read other reviews first!
The pattern on this shirt is so fun!
I cannot judge its performance yet, as it is now December in New Brunswick, aka cold and not prime riding time.
As for sizing, I went with my usual size in bike gear (XL - I'm on the higher end of Samsara's XL/lower end of XXL) and the fit is perfectly slightly oversized, meaning I can tie it up front without it feeling tight.
I was hesitating between a L and a XL, but glad I went with the XL.
Love the getaway shirt! Such a fun addition to my cycling kit

This is definitely one of my favourite summer cycling pieces! I call it my party shirt because you can really wear it anywhere - an evening ride to the beach, a gravel ride, post-ride happy hour, etc. The fit and feel are great and the print is amazing; I love wearing it loose but also love to tie it up. I have received so many compliments on it and always feel confident when I wear it.
