The most important thing to know is the sizing. Mavic is a French company, however they list three sizes: Euro (Int'l), US, and Japanese; the size you see on this website is US. So the Mavic S and Castelli M are about the same size.
Now, to the rating. The material is nice but the stitching/assembly is not premium. For example, the panel that goes around the neck doesn't lie flat but has two creases. The little yellow 'M' on the front is attached with uneven stitches.
I've only worn it on a short ride (albeit hot) and it seems to wick fine.
How thick are they, compared to other merino socks?
Is the fabric brushed? Any wind resistance?
To begin with, this is not a gel glove. There's no gel to be felt, nor is it mentioned anywhere on the packaging.
I've only taken it on a 7-mi ride but it's clear this pair won't be my favorite (although I only have one other pair - a Pearl Izumi Pittards Gel). Grip in the hoods is not good! The material bunches up in the palm area (the gloves are size small); the area between thumb and forefinger is made of nice suede-like material but it crinkles as well.
I got it as a freebie with Craft bibs otherwise it would be on its way back.
