Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a guy who wanted the Castelli Men's Pro Glove, but couldn't find it anywhere online, so I bought the Elite Gel Women's Glove. This glove has just the right amount of covered gel padding for touring. Unlike other gloves with bulbous pieces of gel protruding from the palms, these have flat, grippy gel pads spaced over the palm. The firm, non-slip grip allows a rider to relax his or her hands with little effort expended to maintain control of the handlebars. I've put about 500 miles on the gloves during the past month and washed the gloves which are holding up well. My hands are 8" in circumference, making me a men's size "L" so I bought the XL in the women's glove and they fit very nicely. Great gloves.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

My size wasn't available. I ordered a men's small, hoping they might fit. These gloves are true to size and you should rely on the Castelli sizing chart on the Castelli web site.

My wife has a pair and they're so nice that I will order the women's version in size XL. The gel is really sticky and you will like the way your hands grip the handlebars. The gel is not to thick, which allows a better feel on the handlebars.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These biking shorts are extremely comfortable. I use them on my touring bike (put 240 miles on last weekend) and they kept me cool and comfortable. I especially like the cuff and the long inseam. I'm 5'10.5" and 165 lbs with long legs and a short torso. I ordered the medium ("M") and they fit very well. Wash before use to avoid a little chaffing. I recommend these short to anyone looking for comfort in the heat of Summer.

Also, these shorts are quite stretchy and will adjust to a variety of body types. On me, they give good compression while not feeling at all restrictive.
