Here's what others have to say...

OMG these feel good. No seams and perfect leg grippers - none - the material is just a bit thicker and stays in place. Very lightweight so best for warm to hot days, although compression is pretty good despite thin material. Runs slightly small. I am 5'6" 29" waist 139 lbs and the small works for me. The straps are a bit flimsy and tight but I always wear a baselayer and I am on short side so not a problem for me. If you are tall they might dig in a bit. Superb chamois. Have held up well to repeated use but would not call these everyday bibs.

This is basically a very nice mid-level summer shoe with a Gore-Tex lightly insulated body and upper. Nylon sole, standard straps. Call it a $180 shoe with a goretex and insulation upgrade, which do not in my view justify a $150 price increase, although there are not many decent winter road shoes on the market so these could be the best alternative if you do not want summer shoes and heavy booties.
Pros - fit is right-on for Sidi and despite the non-carbon sole has a very nice road feel. Straps allow easy on-bike adjustment with heavy gloves. Fairly warm but not winter-warm for most folks. Top neoprene ankle band does seal pretty tight and well.
Con - price and not nearly insulated enough to be a true winter shoe.
Fit - Has a bit more volume than same size Sidi road shoe, BUT has a very thin cheap insole so if you replace that with a supportive insole you have less room for thick socks. I am very comfortable in my Ergo 41's and got these in a 42 and am glad I did - I think most people will need to upgrade a size if they will wear heavy socks and/or insole replacement.
Bottom line - great $250 shoe that retails for $330.

Beautifully made, as light weight as advertised, very bright, nice beam pattern. The basic issue is whether for the high cost it gives enough light or if you should get the Diablo (or similar higher-output light) instead, perhaps with a back-up battery since the Diablo burns through battery life really fast. This has much better battery life, perhaps since it is a single LED v. 3 LED's for Diablo. I tend to think that most folks will want more light or settle for a bit less light at a far lower cost from one of the very nice 2014 lights from various brands that are coming out. Also, the "flash" setting is fairly ineffective - it only "blips" slightly so is just not very noticeable as a daytime warning light. The $79 Tracer is actually far more effective for that. Bottom line - a great light with a very narrow niche.

Both lights are extremely bright. Both highly effective for day-time bright sunshine safety visibility. Wrap-around design of lenses provide very good side visibility. Buttons are very small and I expect hard to use with winter gloves but you would only very rarely need to change a setting while riding. Front mounts easily and is unobtrusive - front gets 5+ stars. Rear, however, is designed ONLY to mount onto round seatposts (?!??!) so is very difficult to mount to a saddle bag, backpack, chainstay or to an aero seatpost. so unless you have a round seatpost with a bit of room this may be impossible to mount securely. Hard to fathom why such an expensive and well-made item does not have a more adaptable mounting system. Rear gets 5 stars for visibility 1 star for mounting - how can you make a rear light that does not effectively mount to a backpack or courier pack?

Really nice, high wicking and high airflow material. Allows much more air through the jersey material itself than anything else I have worn. 5'6" 142 and the medium is perfect for me. Only thing it lacks is a zippered key pocket. Back panel material does not stretch so does not sag when pockets are full. NOTE - the material is so thin it is translucent so you can see through this jersey pretty easily. I wish it came in more colors.

I have Mavic's Helium jersey and love it - perfect fit, really well made, etc. so I got this in the same size. Big (pun intended) mistake. This jersey is at least a size larger. 3-4 inches longer in back. The back panel of the Helium is material that does not stretch up/down so jersey does not sag if pockets are loaded. This does not, and the fabric is very light and stretchy so it sags dramatically with anything in the pockets. Esp. at this price, there are better choices out there.

Fits me perfectly (Medium helmets all fit me well) but not a lot of stretch so careful buying if you have a large head or a lot of hair. Very thin and comfortable with flat seams that do not dig into your forehead as many bands do.

Very warm. Super soft so dexterity is very good. The velcro wrist closure is really really really hard to undo (and designed so that the cuffs are to go inside your jacket sleeve, not outside, which I personally liked) and a royal pain but otherwise these are wonderful.

Nice mid-weight roubaix fabric which is moderately compressive. Excellent, very comfortable leg grippers. 5' 6 1/2" 145 lbs and medium fit perfectly. Legs are slightly on the short side. Chamois extremely comfortable but very large and quite thick so those who like minimal chamois will not like these. Makes dynamite combination with any fleece knee or leg warmer. For this price should have flat-locked stitching throughout and better shoulder straps since these are pretty ordinary. Also, the thick rubber DeMarchi name tag on the right leg which you can see in the picture sticks out a half inch and is immensely strange and just begs to be cut off. Overall I really like these.

The pictures do not really show it but this jersey has many separate pieces of fabric, meaning many seams. Way too many seams. Polar opposite of Castelli Boby Paint which has zero seams. All those seams are uncomfortable and pucker, etc. so despite high quality materials, nice features and careful construction, it does not look or feel so good when wearing it.

Every other headband I have ever used has seams at least at top and bottom resulting in severe "dent" marks in my forehead which look mighty dorky for several hours after the ride. This has none. Very thin, stretchy and comfortable. I found quite warm, in part because it is so wide so has significant coverage. Looks really good, too.

This is just a cheap very ordinary MTB shoe with a very thin neoprene upper glued to it. Not waterproof and no real thermal protection. Looks nice in the pictures but in person it is not.

There are much better choices out there, esp. at this fairly high price.

I really like the feel and fit of these gloves. Have made it through serious downpour without leakage although I am not sure if these are seam-sealed and if not a longer ride might lead to leakage. The velcro closure is a bit of a pain but I do like how tight it holds which makes it easy to fit these inside the cuffs of jackets.

Very little insulation so you need a liner or different gloves when it gets cold. $80 should get a little more insulation.

These are made out of waterproof material, but do NOT have waterproof construction (not seam-sealed or taped) - leak readily at the seams and behind the knee. Upper thighs got wet and lower legs got very wet inside these on a 20 minute ride that had 15 minutes of light rain and 5 minutes of heavy rain. Also, this is a laminate that does NOT have interior fleece or any other interior thermal material. Just a very thin fabric webbing bonded to the waterproofing. Therefore no air is trapped and therefore litle thermal protection. The interior side therefore gets just as cold as the exterior side which is very very uncomfortable on the private parts at freezing or below. This problem will be alleviated a bit in the version that does not have a chamois by the shorts you wear underneath but no solution for the version that has the chamois.
