What's with the modesty panel??I was really excited about this jersey when I saw it online. Unlike many women's jerseys, this appeared to be a no frills (seriously, what's with the frilly stuff that seems to be showing up lately in women's athletic gear?), basic, high quality long sleeve jersey in a normal color without floral print (again, what is WITH that?). I was super disappointed when I got it and unzipped it to find what can only be described as a modesty panel sewn in across the chest. I found this both confounding and absurd. First, it makes the jersey impossible to layer because the under layer then sticks out and up in an uncomfortable way. Second, the whole point of a half-zip is to be able to unzip your jersey to modulate heat -- the internal panel defeats the purpose. And third, what is the point of the panel, anyway? I would hazard a guess that, like I do, most women wear sports bras under their jerseys, which does a fine job of preventing any (unintended) flashing if you unzip. So instead of a cool jersey, I ended up with a bunch of outrage. Disappointing.
