Here's what others have to say...

5 5

5'11 160lbs 30" waist, 38.5" chest, size L. Outstanding quality and amazing versatility. Superior wind and water protection. It isn't waterproof but it will keep you dry in all but a downpour. The cut is fantastic - no flapping in the wind but enough room to layer up, the extra long tail keeps you covered in the drops, and the neck is snug but doesn't choke. Vents extremely well thanks to the 2 large side zips, nice reflective striping on the back, and love the drain holes in the rear pockets. I've worn it in the 50s with a light base layer, all the way down to the 30s with a couple of thermal layers. Highly recommend.

I'm a loyal Castelli customer, but I gotta give PI credit cuz they nailed it with these. Excellent wind and water protection. Heavy and a bit bulky, but what serious winter gear isn't? On the bike, however, they feel awesome and the bottom line is they are WARM. I get cold easily but I've worn them in the 30s and never got chilled. Nice touches include the stirrups (should be standard issue on all tights, imo) and the little access flap for answering nature's call without having to disrobe. I'm 5'11 160lbs 30" waist 38.5" chest and the M fits so perfectly with no bunching. Highly recommend.

I love these bibs so much I bought a second pair. The Progetto X2 chamois is the best on the market; it's not bulky and has just enough padding in all the right places. The overall fit is superb with great compression on the legs. The upper is so comfortable that you don't even feel like you're wearing bibs. I also appreciate how low the front panel drops, allowing you to answer nature's call without having to contort yourself into some sort of hunchback. The only thing that prevents me from giving 5 stars is questionable durability. On the front of the bibs at the top of the chamois stitching (where the bottom of my jersey rubs against it), the fabric is pilling and I worry this will eventually become a hole. 5'11" 160lbs 30" waist 38.5" chest - size Large fits perfectly

It pains me to say this because I am a loyal Castelli customer, but after 2 seasons of trying to love these knickers, it's time I admit that I hate 'em. The Progetto X2 chamois is the best on the market imo but it's way too far forward and doesn't cover my sit bones in the saddle. I'm constantly adjusting it on the bike, trying to pull down in front and pull up in back. As a result of all that pulling, I've popped a bunch of stitches in the thighs - poor quality workmanship. Also, the leg grippers don't hold (and I have large calves), especially on long seated climbs, and they eventually ride up to knee level. Again, I'm constantly adjusting them on the bike, pulling them back down. The hallmark of a great pair of bibs is you don't even think about them while riding. Well, that's certainly not the case with these.

Great fabric! Superior wind and water protection, and they're warmer than my bulkier PI arm warmers. The length is perfect. I have to fold down the tops of my PI warmers because they're too long. Not so with these. The fit is nice and snug but they don't stretch as much as the Castelli Thermoflex warmers so I couldn't give 5 stars.

Great fabric! Superior wind and water protection, and they're warmer than you would think. I have thicker knee warmers from PI and Canari that aren't as warm. They fit nice and snug but don't stretch as much as the Castelli Thermoflex warmers so they occasionally slip down, especially on long seated climbs, but honestly I've had similar issues with other brands. I just spray a little Mueller pre-tape on my thighs and they stay put.

This is my first piece of Mavic apparel and I'm very impressed. I love the fit - I'm 5'11" 160lbs 30" waist and 38.5" chest - and the M fits tight enough that it's not flapping in the wind yet I have plenty of room to layer up underneath. I usually wear a Under Armour thermal turtleneck base layer and a PI wind barrier shirt over that when it's really cold and I've stayed warm when temps were in the 30s despite being a cold rider. Fave features include the extra long cuffs, the forearm vents (which I initially thought was a big gimmicky but they really work), the zippered rear pocket, and the asymmetrical zipper which is easy to pull up/down on the bike and doesn't smack you in the chin when you're in the drops. I don't use the chest pocket (except as another vent) but it's big enough for a cell phone or wallet. My only gripe: the neck is a little loose and there's no way to tighten it down so when it's really windy the chill gets in. Otherwise, highly recommend.

I'm an exercise physiologist and competitive cyclist. I recommend Osmo to all my athletes and use it myself for training and racing because the science behind it is rock solid. This mix has the best sugar composition (types and amounts) on the market for performance, it's easy to digest so it won't cause GI distress, it hydrates better than most other drink mixes, and the taste is great - not sickeningly sweet like other drink mixes, just a refreshing orange flavor. If you are serious about performance, this is your drink mix. Well worth the price point.

Castelli jerseys don't fit everyone's physique due to their euro-athletic fit, but for me they can't be beat. If you have a belly or a lot of upper body muscle, it's probably not the brand for you. This particular jersey is tighter-fitting than Castelli's typical jerseys - it's "race fit," like a second skin. Super ventilated fabric for a comfy ride on hot days. Sleeves are the perfect length, about mid way between shoulder and elbow, and because there's no super tight elastic band on the cuff the sleeves are comfortable and don't ride up when you're in the drops. Full zip is always a bonus. I am 5'11" 160lbs with a 38.5" chest and the L fits perfectly.

I own the black socks and love them. You can't beat Merino wool for warm and cool weather riding. However, I just ordered the white ones and, contrary to the picture, they aren't white. More of a dirty yellow color, kind of like your grandfather's sweat-stained undershirt, so I sent 'em back. Customer service was great as usual.
