These look great. The Louis Garneau Lite Airator keeps your hands cool, and protects it from shock thanks to the gel padding on the palms. They seem pretty durable as well. These gloves are easy to put on and adjust. I really like the Ergo Perforated Fastener - they are basically a velcro fastener, minus the shabby durability. These gloves are also easy to take off with the silicone-coated pullers. These silicone pullers aren't as durable, though. After a few rides, they started wearing away, most likely due to gripping of the handlebars. I also like that there are reflective hits on the fingers.
I wish it came in more colors, though.
I like the way these gloves feel, definitely not as airy as the airator, but the price of these were a definite plus. These look awesome. They match most of my cycling clothing, which is also blue, and I definitely feel less road shock.
The silicone coated palm is a bit reminiscent of the Lite Airator's Silicone-coated pullers, except I find that these gloves are more difficult to take off. I kind of wish that these gloves also had the velcro-like(?) fasteners that the Airator had so that there would be more room for adjustments.
Overall, These gloves are comfortable.
One of my first cycling shorts, a bit on the pricey side, but these are great. The chamois feels great, and is plentiful, and reflective hits are always a plus to me.
I'm kind of iffy on the "durable, super-stretchy Carbon Ion Lycra fabric also features a textured outer surface for better temperature management", since after a short while, I did sweat a bit down there, and I felt hot down there for a while as well.
All in all, a great cycling short, but the price is kind of eh.
The Castelli Nanoflex legwarmers contain a fleecy interior as well as a waterproof exterior. Being that these are snug, the silicone grippers do irritate my skin a little bit. This is from the friction of the grippers with my skin. Slightly uncomfortable after a long ride, but being that they feel comfortable otherwise, I don't mind too much. The irritation really sets in after these are removed. These legwarmers are a bit on the glossy side, as with the arm warmers.
Additionally, since these legwarmers (or being that Castelli products generally run smaller), the zipper digs into my ankle. I'm not sure if going a size up would make all the difference. It probably does, but oh well! I like what I have.
