HITS
– The 2D buckle system works great and will stand the test of time far greater than hook & loop closures (Velcro).

– Both pant and jersey provide excellent venting. The mesh panels in the jersey welcome plenty of air, while the perforated sections of the pant cool the legs.

– The jersey’s tagless, low-profile collar is super comfortable and welcomes any neck protection.

– Fit and finish of the Evolution gear rivals most any other premium gear.

– The extra buckle in between the zipper and outer flap adds more security to waist closure.

– Pant is very light considering the extra integration of buckles, etc.

– Outer flap of waist is secured by magnets… kinda sweet idea.

MISSES
– While we like the cuff-less design of the jersey’s arms, we would prefer a bit smaller diameter opening. It runs just a hair loose for our taste.

– Gloves run a tad small.

– Glove cuff is longer than traditional designs and, ultimately, felt a bit constrictive.

THE VERDICT
Fly’s latest Evolution gear fits and functions well. We commend their new 2D waist-tightening design and zipper lock closure. Both the pants and jersey are light and provide great ventilation, yet maintain a reasonable price point. While the gloves weren’t our favorite, some may welcome the longer cuff.
