Familiarity: I've used it several times

So I've worn these bibs a few times now; I'll echo that they do run a bit small as other reviews have stated - I am typically a S in most brands; the best description I can say is that there is a lot of compression in the legs. At 6'1", and 32" inseam I also found that the length of the inseam is quite long, almost going down to my knee.

The "Castelli" logo after a few washes also has started to peel off which is super disappointing as this is a Rossa Corsa level of item.

As far as wind and weather protection, it is fine.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

149 lb 6' 1"

Everyone I have been hearing says size down. I just received a L for myself, 29" waist, 149lb 6'1" and I will be trying a M or S. I size S for Castelli and Rapha; I found going by Assos's chart that I don't get much compression legs to the point where the material isn't stretching much at all, and the straps are giving very little compression. For a product that is race cut, I infer that I am a size or two too large. The front of the bibs as others have commented rides a bit low too.

Too early to give ride review but suggest sizing down compared to the size chart if you're in race shape.

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

It is not yet cold nor rainy yet here so I am unable to evaluate performance.

However, first impressions based on fit, materials, and construction is positive. It is a contoured fit as advertised, and is sized pretty much perfectly for me - I am 6'1" with 38" chest. Quality of the jacket seems to be very high.

I am 6'1" with 38" chest.

Front of shell only reached just under my belly button. - Understand that it's probably intentionally shorter due to it being a hardshell, but it's definitely an inch or so too short, even in riding position. Rest of fit including arms was great. Had to return.

By comparison, the soft shell stealth jacket in the same line by De Marchi fit perfectly.
