What is the material of this neck gaiter? Is it merino wool?
What is the inseam on these shorts?
I bought this in hopes of using it on cold morning rides, but ended up returning it because the fit was a tad bit snug. I'd call it more like "uncomfortably snug". Being a female with a good amount of thick hair, it was rather difficult getting this thing onto my head. I pulled my hair into a ponytail, and it was still pretty tough to get it on. Once it was on, I found the face opening to be too small for my liking. Also with no slits on the sides, it makes wearing sunglasses a challenge as well. I was really hoping this balaclava would work for me, because I have several other Gore pieces that I am completely happy with. I think I'll stick to using my Smartwool balaclava for now.
I recently purchased a Gore jersey (Phantom Summer Sleeveless jersey) in a size XL and the fit is just about perfect for me. However, I have found that when it comes to jackets, I usually need to go up 1 size in order to accommodate an extra layer underneath. Would that be the case with the Gore Phantom SO jacket? Should I go up to an XXL? Or is it true to size and I'll have no issues wearing a baselayer (like UnderArmour ColdGear) underneath it comfortably if I stick with an XL?
The tech specs on this tight indicate a chamois pad, but on the Pearl Izumi website, they list this tight as NOT having a chamois pad. So what's the verdict? Chamois or no chamois?
Was also wondering about the "pinkness" of the magenta color. I see in the response below, that it is more of a red-pink. I'm looking to get a helmet to match my bike, which is red (Cervelo red). Would the magenta in this helmet look "off" with a mostly red bike?
The Tech Specs indicate that this bib short does NOT have a chamois pad...is that correct?!? I find it hard to believe that Pearl Izumi would make a bib short without a chamois...especially at this higher price point! Can anyone verify whether or not this bib short actually does or does not have a chamois?
Does this top have a built-in bra...and if so, is it a standard shelf bra? Is it supportive enough on its own, or would wearing an extra sportsbra underneath be needed for 36-38B/C cup?
