Here's what others have to say...

5 5

I have to confess that I never have worn this. I bought it, and then put on a couple of pounds (working on getting them off!), and don't want the race fit right now. However, the material and construction seem to be of high quality with a good feel. It seems especially beneficial for hot and humid weather conditions. I agree that more colors would be a plus.

I ordered this because I was looking for a running top with longer sleeves and pockets. I'm female and such tops are hard to find. This one was just too big, but the seams are nice because they are flat-locked and not likely to chafe. It also is a nice lightweight, breathable material. I gave it 5 stars because it's my problem that it doesn't fit like I wanted.

I have had this jacket for almost 3 months. I found that I'm too accustomed to hi viz cycling clothing. I thought the topaz color of this jacket would be fine, especially with the reflective accents. However, I found myself opting for other tops (including Gore very hi viz jersey as an overlayer), I've concluded I just don't need this.
It is very nicely constructed, with a lot of attention to detail, and it came at a great price.

I ordered these knickers expecting to get a different chamois. Customer service agreed that the chamois was not what they thought, so I was sent another pair. The second pair was just like the first. I really wanted these knickers because of the temperature range. So, I'm keeping them, although I would have preferred the expected chamois, which had no "butt" outline (especially given the price), but I liked the chamois I got well enough. I love the material that the knickers are made of. Although supposedly compressive, I did not find them to be so, and I ordered according to Assos' measurement system.
This is my first pair of Assos clothing ever. But I really wish that every pair of Assos clothing would have picture of chamois, inseam length (good luck finding that out, too), etc.
But, the sales help from Competitive Cyclist/Backcountry was very prompt and they did their best.

These back-closing bibs are truly convenient for pit stops. I didn't have trouble with the clasp as long as I found the strap to pull it. They are not at all compressive. However, the front came up on me because I'm on the short side. I'm returning because the chamois was the dealbreaker, although I'm guessing it would work for most women.

These are warm in the 40s with brisk winds and no sun. I'd try them for colder temps, but haven't found warm enough gloves to do so. The attention to detail is great. I've worn them on 40-70 mile rides with pretty much no chamois discomfort (that's a minor miracle!). I've tried the Nimbo chamois in the other Giordana lines, but it hits a hot spot. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs, bigger on the bottom than the top and wear a size S in these.

Although these would probably be fine, they are pretty sheer. I've never worn bibs and thought the price was right to try some, especially with the zipper system. However, I decided to wait until another pair of bibs comes along that I'm sure I'll be comfortable with. I'm 5'4" 120 lbs. I ordered the xs because the xs shorts fit. It made for a snug fit in bibs, though.

I first bought a medium in these, but they were too big. Then, I grabbed the small that came in and felt sure that it must fit. It is too big, too. It's mainly the loose low-riding waist. I can lean forward like on a bike seat without it falling, but can't lean over to pick something up without the waist sliding down. I thought they were supposed to be compressive but they definitely are not. I'm 5'4" 120 lbs.

I ordered these in small and the front bunched up a lot in front, so ordered an XS. They bunch up somewhat, but I'm keeping them. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs--small hips, muscular legs. The shorts don't hurt while riding, although I've not ridden more than 30 miles in them, but my bottom "feels" them after I take them off. I don't know, but maybe that's what people mean when they say there's too much padding.

I love the knicker material and the visual detail. The chamois is thicker multi-density. I wanted to like it, but, after trying it on, the chamois hit a sore spot that seems to be unique to me. I have tried pretty much all the brands offered (except Assos), and just have problems. I thank Competitive Cyclist for their great inventory, great prices, and return policy!

I'm returning this knickers because I ordered a medium because I don't like a lot of compression around my stomach. I am 5'4", 120 lbs. The knickers were pretty big all over. The waistband is really wide, so I don't think it would be a problem in a smaller size. However, the chamois is a bad width for me, who has a big problem with cycling bottoms chafing the crease of my leg or the leg itself. I'm giving it 4 stars because I think they are well made, just not right for me.

I may be mistaken but I think these shorts have an older chamois and I wanted to try the newer. I love the sit bone end of Sugoi bottoms, but the front tends to rub the inside of my relatively muscular legs. I didn't think this one would be any different than the RS FXE chamois knickers I've already worn.

I love the Softflex material that makes up this knicker. I loved it so much that I tried the Med, Small, and XSmall to see if the chamois would adjust to a comfortable spot. Unfortunately, it did not. I am 5'4", 120 lb., and the Small was the best fit. The price was great, and it will be perfect for others, thus the 4-star rating.

I read the review about the big chamois, but decided to try them anyone. The chamoi was big everywhere--front, back, and in the middle. No way was it going to hit any pressure spots. I ordered a small. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs.
