Bought a large originally based on size chart. Wow! Very slim cut. Large Castelli is much smaller than Large Pearl Izumi. I like the other features of the jersey. A little more personality than most.
Pearl really does a good job on gloves and my initial impressions with these gloves are very positive. The only draw back is the gel palm. It kind of makes them hard to use for warm weather skiing and xc skiing. No doubt though that my hands will be happy in cold weather on the bike.
Ordered the xl based on description and was very big and loose. Didn't look terrible but realized that with anything in the pockets it would be pulled down and flapping against my butt. Returned it for a large and very happy with fit.
Ordered a second one in a different color as you can't beat the price.
I'm not usually picky about bibs but am not really impressed with the fit of these bibs. The number of panels and seams is also a point of contention for me.
I have tried both large and xl. The large fit is very snug. The xl doesn't feel very supportive.
The panels in the shorts do not seem to be aligned to maximize support and the stretch of the Lycra is set in an opposing way with thick seams that chafe and are noticeable.
