Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great fabric let down but a very basic pattern which results in them not feeling perfectly flat against the back of the knee - compare the pattern of this knee warmer (basically a tube) with something like the Assos kneewarmer and you'll see why these are let down in that department. The fabric is great though, water just beads off and they keep you warm even when it gets through (stops wind chill). Wish they charged the extra and used a more advanced pattern system (which would result in more fabric wastage and a higher cost) but more comfort. The fabric has so much potential!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really great fabric, watching the water bead off is incredible and they breath well even when it's 'just' cold without the rain. I'm 6 foot 7 and they are still really long - not sure who would have arms longer than mine! I will say one thing thougfh, the material is superb but Castelli seem to be a bit lazy with their patterns - they should charge the extra $10 and really get some shape into these things, it's not too bad on the arm warmers but the knee warmers are really let down by treating them as 'tubes' as opposed to the way Assos make everything articulated.

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

I've never got great use out of my Oakley glasses - they always end up sweat stained through the ride when things get down and dirty. A cap (I like the Rapha ones) seemed to hold back the sweat a bit.

Used it last weekend including a 17km mountain ascent - I still wasn't dripping by the top!

After 5 hours it was still wicking, very impressive.
