Well made, looks good.

I normally wear a medium jersey, but since I was at the top end of the sizing chart for medium, I went with large. I'm glad I did. The Large is snug on my chest, and just right on my arms, which are big for my size.. The one place the fit isn't so good is in the back. It's both too long and too loose. But I'm glad I didn't go with a smaller size as it would not have fit elsewhere. I did like the P.R.O. enough to buy a second one in a different color.

Good but some reservations.

Good points
1) Warm down to 39
2) Legs are really waterproof and keep you dry.

Bad points:
1) As others pointed out, they run small—REALLY small. I wear M to L. From previous Castelli bib experience I ordered the XL and they fit well. 5'10" 165 lbs
2) As others also have mentioned, Castelli continues to use lettering that peels of in a short amount of time, even if you hang to dry. Cannondale does the same thing—they need to use something more durable!
3) The seat is NOT waterproof. I'm guessing that water gets pushed/sucked through the seams and soaks the chamois. In the accompanying photo you can see the exterior after a short ROAD ride. I didn't take a shot of the chamois—it looked like I had a case of explosive diarrhea! Lesson learned—next time I'll put the damn fender on!

As with others, I find that Assos jerseys are all over the map on fit. My long sleeve jerseys, M fits great. Short sleeve version of same jersey was short—barely covering the bib. But I could live with it because it fit well everywhere else.

Not so with the Assos Competitive Cyclist SS Jersey Equipe. I should have returned it, but I thought maybe I could get used to it. Very disappointed. It's too tight in the chest AND arms.

Also the materiel is not what I expect from Assos. This just seems like a standard everyday jersey with the Assos name on it. Not the same quality as my other Assos jerseys, and at this price, it SHOULD be.

Although generally I like it, it has two problems for me.

1. The computer mount was WAY too far back to be of any use. Elsewhere I read that someone had reversed the mount. Not only does that negate the aerodynamics of the bottle, it STILL didn't work for me. I finally solved this problem by purchasing a universal computer mount from Profile Design, so now the Garmin sits just below the handgrips. Aside from the nosecone obscuring part of the bottom of my Edge 1000, I can now see my stats without getting out of aero position.

2. Having the straw at the very back means I have to tuck my chin way down to drink from it. This gave me TMJ-like symptoms during the ride and a sore neck the next day. I'm still working on a solution for this. For now I have to use my hand to bend the straw while I drink. Not acceptable. I wish there was a straw like the kids flexi-straws so I could bend the straw to the position I need.

I was tired of just plain old black bike shorts. I wanted something with a little more style, but without sacrificing functionality. I got it. I've had these for about 3 weeks and 400 miles, and so far, no complaints. The size indicated on these shorts are smaller than what you might expect, so if you are on the border between sizes, go up! I have a 32 waist and got the large. I'm glad I did because a medium would NOT have fit.
