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

I wear a size small in every other jersey I've owned, but in this the Medium was the right choice. Definitely wear sunblock underneath the thin spots. I got a sunburn on my shoulders on the first ride. Also, it seems like Castelli improved on the fit issues from the first Climber's jersey, but there is still unnecessary puckering of the jersey in the front due to it being too long there. I end up folding in the front of the jersey to decrease length and make it tighter. The only flapping in the wind comes in the front in the chest area because of this extra fabric. Other than that, I like the feel of the jersey. I don't think it tops the 2014 LG Superleggera jersey though. That one fit amazing (size S) and seemed to be even cooler despite it being black.

I'd have to disagree with the statement that these bibs run close to US sizing. I've worn them 3 times now and although I got them in the same Small size as my other nicely-fitting bibs from Capo and Pactimo, they are much, much smaller than those. You definitely have to order one size larger than normal with these. I've had quite a bit of discomfort in the groin from these bibs pulling too tightly. It's not the width of the leg, etc. that's too small--it's just the length from straps to the leg opening.

Other than that, they're good bibs and I wish I had gotten a Medium. I was just a bit misled by the suggested sizing.
