Familiarity: I've used it several times

I normally wear a large or sometimes medium in standard clothing so thought a L/XL would fit. I have worn it several times and it works GREAT to keep me warm but is plain uncomfortably tight. Worn in temps to mid 30's with jersey and standard warm riding jacket and kept warm. I just wish it was a bit larger.

So happy with these gloves. Probably order slightly larger than you normally would. Cuts wind excellent, keeps my hands dry and warm. Best winter gloves i have ever owned. For the folks that say they are not good below freezing, well, probably true, but I don't ride outside beyond a commute to work when the temps drop below freezing so i don't care. they are great in the mid 30's through 50 degrees.

I have 7+ pairs of bib shorts, all size L and its amazing how different they all fit. These in particular are silly small, not around the mid section, but the straps actually hurt after an hour or two. The pad is good but somehow these seem to chaff me more than the rest i own. A bit underwhelmed compared with my other castelli's.

Better than expected. The settings dial for "flat" or "hills" really works but really just means it pushes harder against your pedals the faster the RPM your wheel spins. Sound is reasonably quiet (in comparison to other brands and older models anyway). Its just great...if its snowing, this is the next best option.

The perfect jersey. You can race with this but I would really recommend body paint for race day. This is for any other day a serious rider heads out for a few hours. Just loose enough to be comfortable over long hauls yet snug and trimmed in all the right places as to not catch wind. As per other's reveiws, order one size larger than you normally would. The zipper is kind of difficult to deal with but it is also super light and does work fine so not registering a complaint, just noting it is tricky to work.

As reviewed elsewhere, order one size larger than you normally would. The body paint jersey litterly makes me feel like i am going faster - can't say i litterally am, but it does feel that way. This is a full on race jersey, if you are going for a longer ride at non-race speeds, get a different jersey. This one is snug to the point of being uncomfortable to sit at a cafe and you would look pretty silly wearing it on a sundy ride in the park...unless you happen to be racing in the park. If you are truly interested in speed and/or are racing, this is the perfect jersey.

As per other reviewers of the Castelli equipment, order one size too big. This particular bib short has a super slippery finish, feels more like body paint version and has the chamois of the race bibs. In my opinion the "long distance" chamois is simply too large and pushes the family jewels too tight. These are a great bib.
