Here's what others have to say...

Very light, grippy and not too thick. Few guys at the shop have purchased after seeing mine. It's flat/matte black and with 830 (dry) miles on it, still looks good. Can't attest to wet weather performance as I haven't been caught in the rain.

I wear a TRUE US 10 as measured on the nice little scale they use at most shoe stores and with this in mind I went against the size chart and ordered a MEDIUM and it fits perfect. The heel hits my heel as it should, no bunching around the toes and the height of the sock is just right although longer than what I'm normally sporting its definately not too long.
Buy it, you'll like it.

I can take this jacket from low 50s to low 30s with the right base. Windstopper works much better than anticipated. Sizing is good, don't let the 'european race' in the description fool you, it's the same as slim fits used to describe other items from Castelli.
If you can stop the wind from getting to your chest, and even more importantly your arms you can have much better rides, this jacket will allow that. Not bulky, fairly light, comfortable, stylish, I say get it.

Specialized, Pearl Izumi I wear everything in Medium. Castelli is a hard one to fit. Anything with a full zipper I'm a Large even though their quite a lot tighter in the shoulder/armpits. Large b/c of the loose material around the waist/stomach is obscene on an XL (w/ full zip). I bought this jersey from LBS in XL and it's still very tight in the pits and shoulders but the length and fit around torso is the best!
For this jersey, unless you like SUPER tight I would size up two (yes two) from your normal US brand sizes. Trust me. I have many many jerseys/knickers/bibs/shorts etc from many makers and I obsess over fit...what good is an aero bike if you're pulling a parachute, eh?
Like this jersey a lot after I got the fit dialed-in. Only thing that would make it better is a full zip making it easier to remove.
DO NOT take this in the woods for MTB....when it gets close to a tree I can feel it get tighter and try to run away! What I mean to say is that it snags, a lot and VERY easily - ROAD only on this one unless you're going for the tattered jersey look or have time to pull all the snags through the material (which is what I did while watching the last TDF).

Umm, seriously? Please tell me that's not a small hook n' loop on the top front of the collar?
Leave that unhooked and you may as well be wearing a dress shirt....why do sleek cycling jerseys have crazy collars is the front? If you have them zipped up tight, they look great, drop the zip a bit and you have a skin tight collared dress shirt.
I love jerseys w/ low collars that stay flat even when the zip is in the middle of my chest.

Just to be clear, I'm talking about the pic of the white jersey, where's the zipper head?

yes.
I'm a US 9.5/10, I bought the L/XL and the heel cup marking (where sock is different color at heel) ends up covering my Achilles tendon when pulled up tight enough to prevent bunching around my toes. I bought the Medium and had a perfect fit.
Castelli is bizarre fit wise. Socks are typically much larger and shorts/jerseys much smaller. I'm a huge Castelli fan, just takes trial and error trying to get the best fit. Don't get me started on the way Castelli full zip jerseys vs. 1/2 zip jerseys fit....

No.

I'm 6' w/ 35" inseam, 175lbs bare w/ 31" waist.

I did size medium and they're rather snug on my thighs (but I like the compression). Straps fit my shoulders just right but the leg length is off. Seems like my legs are too long and the bottoms ride up to just below my knees at the thinnest part of my upper leg and they gap a bit. Perhaps I should have tried these in a large, but in doing so it seems the crotch would be a problem as I use these for MTB too and need to worry about saddle snag.
They are windproof, that's for sure and that's exactly what I wanted/needed so they do get the job done.
Be warned: I thought my seatpost was bending or my frame was in trouble when I first rode this on MTB - the pad is VERY thick and creates an interesting feeling when on the saddle. I'm normally riding thinner seat pads for better saddle feel, this one will not allow the best feedback from your bike, it'll mute the feedback and like others may agree, this is not always best.

FIT: not quite European, not quite American so maybe buy your normal US size and 1 size larger then return the least favorite.

I really like these booties. Fit true to size, easy to use (remove/put on) and kept me completely warm at 32F during a nighttime road ride. I wore thin summer sock w/ my Sidi carbon sole shoes and feel that this setup will be good for me down to 10F. I normally get cold feet first which will occasionally end my ride early - I don't think I'll have that problem moving forward.
I recommend - get 'em!
