Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Gabba lives up to the hype. My first ride with it was 23 miles in the rain at 52 degrees F, and I was entirely comfortable. Subsequent rides have been just as good. It is wind and water proof, without making you feel like you're in a plastic bag. It fits snugly all over, but I think it's generally true to size. I'm 5'8" 150lb, and I wear large Castelli shorts, but the M jersey fits exactly, with just enough room for a thin base layer. If you are on the line, probably order up a size.

I have worn these shorts for about three months on my 23 mile commute. They are very comfortable, durable, and the chamois is excellent. These shorts eliminated a nagging saddle sore that I've had with several other pairs of shorts. I'm long in the torso, and the bib straps are very comfortable. Minor demerits for a bit of fabric fraying near the knee (cosmetic only), and the Sugoi logos are also beginning to peel off (ditto). Great shorts at a very fair price.

These are super-comfortable knickers. Above-the-calf length, good knee coverage without any sense of restriction. They're not insulated, but the fabric is substantial and they did me right on a 38-50 degree ride. Wel padded, lo-pro chamois, no issues. The bib is very flexible, more comfortable than other bib tights I own. Only one ride so far, but they feel very well made, like all my other PI stuff, and the stitching is smooth and feels strong. They hiked up my junk a bit more than I'd prefer, but in my experience bib tights loosen up a bit as you wear them and that stops being an issue. The site says that there's a rear pocket, but there isn't (or it's extremely well hidden).

These are very good arm warmers. Cozy interior, tight enough to stay put but not so tight as to bother you. I'm 5'9" with average (i.e., non-workout) arms, and the mediums fit just right. The seam is noticeable when you put them on, and may leave a mark after you take them off, but it didn't bother me when riding. In fact, I basically forgot I was wearing them, which is to me the hallmark of good gear.
