Here's what others have to say...

4 5

I've used this small bag on my Arione Versus for well over a year now. I've rode with it in all types of weather and it holds up just fine. The material is a thick and fully waterproof (I've taken out the tube and put my phone in there on wet rides). The small size has just enough space for 1 tube, 1 CO2 cartridge/applicator, and levers. Maybe even a gel and some money or car key if you get daring. I like the clip and adjustable design of it. Aesthetically, this is the best looking bag out there.
My only issue with this bag is the plastic clip. After one year of being shoved around it's grown a little loose and I worry it is going to fall out of the seat on a bumpy rides. Also even when I tighten the screw it still flops around a little bit which is annoying when climbing or going slow pace. Mine is still holding strong to the bag itself though unlike the previous reviews. I think if they made a better clip in the next version this would be a 5/5 no questions.

When I'm not using team socks you can find me in a pair of these bad boys. They are great quality which we have come to expect from Mavic. These are composed of a light, soft, and thin material that keeps sweat away on those hot days. I wear them as a base layer sock in the winter too. I don't know what the other reviewer did to wear a hole in them after one ride (perhaps a sizing issue?) but I have a few of these socks edging 1yr old now and they are still just as good as day 1. I wear a size 44.5 shoe and have a L in these which is perfect.
So what makes this better than other socks? Here are some more points:
-Easy to wash (yellow tends to hold onto dirt more than others)
-Can put in dryer and not have to hand these down to your kids like some other brands
-Pro length (mid-calf area)
-They look cool.. I am not a fan of logo'd socks but I like the "M" design.
-Fair price for quality cycling socks

Buy em.

First off, I have size 44.5 Giro Prolights and I went with an XL for the size on this shoe cover based off the charts and previous customer reviews. Granted the Prolight is a slim shoe and I have no issues getting the covers on or off.
This shoe cover is yet another quality product from Castelli. The fit is very snug and racelike as is with all Castelli gear. I take my time putting them on and taking them off but they seem like they can take a beating as the material is very stretchy. The zipper starts from the back heel and closes at the bottom of the calf. Maybe they changed the zipper since these last reviews but I don't see myself breaking it even if I tried. The top cover material itself doesn't seem 100% waterproof while riding in heavy rain but it's still got great water/wind-proof qualities. The bottom heel area and toe area also have a stronger material which is nice while you are unclipped and walking around. I've done quite a few rides sub-20 degrees on wet roads with snow coming down and my feet stayed comfy with proper socks and these covers over my shoes.
I don't know why I even bothered trying any other brand for shoe covers as I can always count on Castelli to put out a quality product.

Beyond thrilled at the purchase of this jacket. For a year or so now I have been debating spending the extra money on a Gabba vs keep using the traditional $50 trashbag style rain/wind proof jackets. I finally caved and picked up a convertible Gabba. I take a size small in Castelli jerseys/bibs so I went with a medium for the jacket. Sleeve length is perfect and chest is not tight but still race fit to the waist.
High quality seams all over. Material is very durable and stretchy. Grippers on waist keep the jacket in place, never have to adjust. Wrists are not tight but have grips to keep them in place on skin or gloves. Collar is soft and actually does a good job at pulling sweat away. Nanoflex all over which does a good job to keep you dry up to a certain point. But let's be serious if you are riding 3-4hours in steady rain/snow and expect to stay bone dry that's just not realistic. This is very windproof but still breathes and pulls sweat away better than any jersey I've used. You could easily wear this jacket with no base layers into 50-65F+ and not overheat.
As for the guy saying how he returned it because of the sleeves are not removable while riding, well they make such a product and they are called arm warmers. Castelli designed the zippers on this jacket in such a way so that you can't feel them in your arm pits. If you have the sleeves on it feels like a normal jacket, sleeves off and its a regular jersey. No bulk. The best thing about the zippers is that with the sleeves on I can half zip the sleeves and get air flowing into the arms when I stop.
Overall, I will never second guess buying a Castelli product again. There's a reason so many pro tour teams have unbranded Gabba's, because they work a hundred times better than competitors. You pay for quality and functionality and it is worth every penny.

I bought these gloves for the single fact of not having to switch between gloves and windproof mittens in the winter.
First Impressions: Nice light, soft, tight material, keeps hands warm. Fairly durable, although I haven't crashed with these. I have smaller hands w/ long fingers so I went with a size Small and they fit perfect. The wrist on these gloves is tight (I have a 16cm wrist and it leaves little room). I also like this though because it will keep water and snow out.
Glove fingers are slim but fit my hands very well. Grippers on the inside fingers/palm. Touch-phone index finger pad works great.
Vent-Air wind shell (mitten part) is easy to get on and off and even has its own little storage compartment on the back of the hands. Can put a hand warmer in there too!
Haven't got the chance to test in serious cold yet but will put these through the ringer this winter. For the price (sub $40) how can you go wrong?
