Wished I would have bought more

I'm just getting into winter rides; made possible by the great prices of cc, BT, and I got a pair of these for $65 or so. I wanted to order more, but I didn't have any Capo stuff at the time, so I wasn't sure of the fit. I'm about 5'8" and 150 lbs and the medium fits me perfect; a little better than Castelli mediums (Capo appears to be a tad larger).

Man, I really like these. The padding is very comfortable, and the fuzzy lining is perfect. I do agree with Mark... I wouldn't personally wear these above 50 F as they are quite warm. but I have worn them at 35 F no wind and 42 F with a LOT of wind; and they kept me very comfortable.

After attempting some cold weather rides last year without the right gear, I never would have guessed how nice winter riding could be. It's amazing what a little preparation will do. I pair these with one of the Capo jackets, and no base layers, and I am as snug as a bug (in a rug of course).

I've seen these on BT for mid $80's and held out... stupid. Now they're out of mediums and the price is higher. If I would have known, I would have ordered at least 3-5 sets of these; oh well, lesson learned.
