Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet is a great price for MIPS technology. It is a little on the heavy side compared to what I'm used to. My lightweight Giro bit the dust when a road raged driver pushed me over... But better the helmet than my melon. I walked away without a concussion. Giro fits me well so I stuck with it. The adjustable sizing system works well. The straps are a bit bulky but it looks good and I feel safe enough.

Pearl Izumi are my go to gloves. These have the added bonus of of extra ventilation through mesh that covers the padding. I was worried they may not be durable, but they are holding up well and the material seems very sturdy. These run just a little bit smaller than other PI gloves I have purchased in the past. But a little snug is good.

I'm 6'2", 175lbs, orginally bought M but traded it in for the L for the slightly longer sleeve. It is a very snug fit, but fits comfortably and does work well, keeping heat in around torso and arms, venting heat under the arms and shoulders. It's amazing how well it works. I put this under a wind breaker and stay warm down into the 30s.

I have worn this in temperatures ranging from the mid 50s to the high 30s. The most amazing feature is that while it doesn't ever heat me up I also never get too cold wearing it, even with a fairly light base layer on. In other words, it does its job of keeping out wind, rain, and snow while breathing, so it always seems about the right temperature for riding. It fits tightly and doesn't flap around. I am 6'2" 175 and bought a L and it fits perfectly. The collar goes up high but is not too tight and if I put on my thin balaclava that feeds down into the collar I am warm through my neck and chin. The pockets seem to be positioned a bit differently than most of my summer jerseys, but I have gotten used to them. They are large enough to do their job. I do notice that if I unzip it much, it creates a bit of a sail, but that is the nature of all windbreaking jackets. I like that removing the sleeves reveals not a vest, but a short sleeve jacket--a nice touch. In short, this is a top-quality, well-made product. I wore it today in a driving hail/rain/snowstorm in the mid 30s and it kept my core warm and dry. Can't say as much for my gloves or tights....

I have worn these on rides in the low 50s down into the upper 30s. On the colder end of that range my fingertips do get a bit cold, but not distractingly so. They keep out wind and rain, and the soft cloth above the thumb is a nice addition. I followed the measurement chart: the glove fit and I have had no problems with slipping or gripping. I can control my iPhone well enough with the gloves on to change podcasts en route. And the padding is similar to the Izumi summer gloves (that I also wear). A great winter glove that keeps me tuned into the bike and warm enough to ride even on cold, windy, snowy days. One caveat: when they get wet and temperatures are under 40, fingertips will get very cold. If you're often in a cold storm, consider some lobster gloves instead. But I like the control I can get from these thin yet warm full fingered padded gloves.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have worn this socks with and without booties (w/o booties into the low 40s and your toes will survive). They are extremely comfortable and not as bulky as I feared they might be. The most amazing thing is they stay dry (or at lest feel dry) even when things heat up a bit. They are so comfortable I have taken to wearing them around the house.
