Here's what others have to say...

Too short
2 5

These are NOT a size L in length, much less an XL.
I've attached a picture of these Giordana leg warmers up against size L Voler & Hincapie models: the Giordanas are a full 2" shorter, and since the elastic bunching at the back of the knee dictates how you position the warmers on your legs, they do not cover my shins properly.
Nice concept, but Giordana needs to produce a full size run: the stretch weave conforms nicely, but can't make up for lack of length. I tried to stretch them out lengthwise before spinning a couple of minutes on the trainer, and they slipped right back up my leg.

This jersey is an amazing value. I own over 20 different cycling jersies (inclucing the Gore Xenon 2.0 Jersey which costs twice as much), and this one is my hands-down favorite for warm-weather riding.
Why? AWESOME ventilation. Mesh panels are perfectly placed - this jersey stays dry and airy even when temps soar above 100 degrees here in the Sierra Foothills. I am a high-sweat-rate rider, and in over 30 years of competitive riding, I have never had anything that transports moisture so well.
Other benefits of note:
Pockets are well placed, and there are no silly, unserviceable zippered compartments that require two hands to open while on the bike or to harbor mold on the washline.
I LOVE the collar that tapers down to the neck zipper. Pros tend to wear high-collared jersies, but that is because that collar is billboard space for sponsors. I own several high-collared jersies for cold-weather use, but unless you ride around with the jersey zipped all the way up in the summer, that extra collar is going to just flap around in the wind and chafe or annoy.

Only caveat: this jersey breathes so well , that when climbing in hot & dry conditions with little wind, you may find yourself pouring water down your back for additional cooling. This is a tradeoff I'm willing to take for a jersey that never leaves you with a clammy belly on long descents.

Fit: I am 6'1", 155lbs , 40" chest, with an athletic build and muscular arms. The Medium gives me a perfect, race-ready fit with zero puckering or material to flap in the wind. If you are a bigger build you'll want to size up to the Large.

I returned this jacket because it reminded me of old, low-tech, 2-layer fleece / nylon jackets I owned in the 80s, and not in a good way.
It is basically just a nylon shell with a free-floating brushed poly zip-t that hangs inside. I expected a modern, two-layer laminated fabric, but found what is in fact two garments stitched together only at the wrists, hem, and neck.
It felt and looked lumpy, the nylon was noisy in motion, and it had no stretch. The wrists and hood elastic had no adjustability.
Frankly, I'd rather just wear a poly base layer and single-layer nylon windbreaker and have the option to remove each layer independently.
I had intended the jacket as a wind-resistent yet breathable layer for backcountry skiing & hiking.
Instead I got the Mountain Hardwear Onata Softshell.
It doesn't have a hood and weighs 4 ounces more, but the breathability, DWR, adjustable cuffs, fit, feel, & stretch of the Onata are just what I was looking for.
Fit notes: I'm 6'1", 160lbs with 35" long arms, and the XL I ordered was way too baggy. According to the Marmot size chart, I was between a Medium and Large size, but those sizes were out of stock at that time.
