Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The interface, chuck, whatever you want to call it does not seat and lock easily onto the valve stem. I'm using Presta with valve extenders. It just plain up sucks, pops off inconveniently, etc..

Once you finally get the thing to lock up right...the pump certainly pumps. Seems well made but the chuck just sucks.

I'm returning and purchasing something else...

So...The camo speaks to me. Puts me in my element. lmao. Quality Jersey, 3 pockets and a zipper side pocket for your electronics- a key feature for me ever since my iPhone went flying on a descent and smashed wit the sound of a dozen light bulbs... 3 back pockets, the usual drill, a steal at less than $40.00. I own 3...

I jumped on the sale...perfect for high 40s to 50s riding. I paid attention to the sizing chart and these fit perfectly. Good compression. I'm 5'10" and went with the XXL, spec'd at 36" for the waist, my size... The fit is race, the leg grippers stay where I put them. Happy so far, I've ridden a century with them and a few 40-60 milers. Comfort is good.

...and

It's already done it's job. I just bought the damned thing less than 2 months ago and I smashed my Calabasa against the pavement today. The shell and foam buckled and delaminated but my head is in one piece!!!!

Thank you Kask for preventing additional loss of my already sorry IQ.

Great cleat, my first clipless experience. Frankly, everyone psyched me out about falling with these. So much drama over nothing!

I became instantly acclimated.

Then again on my first trip I went over the Brooklyn Bridge on a Saturday morning with gobs of crowds of people...I must have had to clip in and out at least 100 time each way...So, I gotta a lot of practice done on my first day with them.

A flick of the ankle, without even thinking about it, and I'm out. If I spaz out in some mud or on ice I pop right out as well.

1000 miles since November.

Some people talk about popping out with these when pulling through the pedal upstroke...I don't think you'd ever have that problem if you're feet have been properly aligned via cleat position/fitting.

Does what they should and they're cheap.

And comfortable. The chamois is understated but definitely does the job, it's nice not to feel like I'm wearing a pair of Depends... I don't know why there are gripes here regarding construction, no one has offered up any description of damage/tears, etc.. The stitching looks more than adequate upon inspection.

A good fit for me in large. I'm 5'10" @ 205#, my thighs measure 23" around.

You can't do better for $45.00

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The material is stiff, and the wind blows right up yer knickers. Annoying to say the least; they make that "swishing," sound like bad 70's corduroys whilst one pedals as well. So, good well made shorts, I can see how they may appeal to some, but too bulky and cumbersome for my type of riding which is definitely more on the road side of things...
