There are so many different versions of these...What is the difference between the ThermoBootie, the FuguBootie, and the Winterbootie? Basically, I need THE WARMEST shoe covers.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been running this rack for a while now, and am super happy with it. It's very easy to switch between cars, and I can get my bikes on and off in no time. Quality is nice and I dig the orange anodized parts.

A few nitpicks regarding the cable lock though...
1. The cable lock is not long enough. It barely makes it through both bikes.
2. The cable lock gets kinked and is virtually impossible to get back into the rack without, at a minimum, hiring a shaman to come cast spell or a snake charmer to coax it back in.
3. The rubber on the arms is already starting to fall off from my road bike's front brake, so I guess that could be a little tougher and durable for the money.

Otherwise, it's a great product. A tad pricey, but the quality is nice enuogh. Plus it looks good.

Really a great fitting helmet. Feels nice and snug, but, not "scanners" snug. Very lightweight too. I've read about airflow problems, but, honestly it's hotter than hades in NC right now, and the helmet feels great. I bought the white/black/red one and it's pretty dope looking. The tension system is simple, but the ratchets seem to bite really well.

The only beef is that I can't scratch my head with the Koryoid as the vents are all essentially filled in. Also, there's no place to really hold glasses other than if you wear some Smiths. Lucky for me I have a pair of Smiths, so no big deal (even though I prefer my Oakleys!), I'll be interested in seeing how it does with a cap underneath it this winter.

All in all, a great piece of kit that I'd gladly buy again.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked these up via a tip from Caley Fretz on Velonews, as he stated they were his favorite leg warmers...ever. When a tech editor of a popular cycling website & mag tell you they like a piece of gear out of left field, then usually it's a good tip. Something like a frame or wheelset is so objective...but a utilitarian piece of gear like leg warmers? No doubt I'll take advice.

I waited and waited for CC to get these back in stock and didn't want to take a chance on sizing. I ordered the both, and like I said in my other comment, they actually came as either S/XS or M/L (not S/M or L/XL as listed!). I have a 32 inseam, and tried the M/L on first...immediately threw the S/XS back in the envelope and sent them back. I was semi-intimidated by the thin fabric and the un-stretched length made them appear too short. However, as soon as I put them on, they stretched out significantly, and fit like a flippin' glove. You can see the variable stretch and thickness in their "rest" mode.

It's still pretty chilly here in NC in the mornings, so I put these to the test on a number of morning rides here. I'm blown away by how warm they are based on how thin the are. They fit VERY nicely and the various patterns of the stitching are very ergnomic and functional (i.e. the knee area is like a triangle shape and it flexes perfectly). There was no bunching behind the knee, and the elastics at the top and bottom worked great. The warmers didn't move at the cuffs (top or bottom), and the low profile caused zero chaffing/saddle rub. There is ZERO windproofing, so keep that in mind. I did ride these in 45 degree weather and they were absolutely fine, as well as in 60 degree weather once it warmed up, and they were never too hot.

Really a great piece of gear.

I've bought these gloves for the last 5-6 years as they are usually worn out by the time the winter season is over. I wear them for practically every ride down to 35 degrees! They are awesome. The original ones had a small tapered cuff which really helped seal around the wrist, but for some reason they did away with it. They're super thin, and you'd think they couldn't handle down to 35 deg, but they're great. Careful, there can be some crookedly sewn fingers here and there, otherwise these really shatter any other glove.

Picked up one of these after my noggin' busted a Bell Sweep. I really liked the way the red looked in the picture, and it's even more electric in person! It's like a matte, bright red. Looks super fly!! One note...my strap is grey...not red.
I wore a M in Bell, and took a gamble with a L in this one after reading various comments about it fitting too big/too small. It isn't too heavy, and, I'm noticing the benefits of the plethora of vents as it heats up here in North Cackalacky. It fits a little differently than the Bell, as it sits a little differently on the head, however, I've found it offers more in the way of peripheral visibility and what not. Doesn't seem like there is a lot of padding, but, kind of like a minimalist saddle these days, it's got all you need without the bulk. The pads wick well and are nice and soft.

Final thoughts...super ventilated, good looks, comfy, and not too many around!

These tights absolutely rule. They slay any cold weather...period. The fit is second to none, and the chamois is absolutely sublime. My best piece of gear/purchase to date. These things are just amazing. 5'10", 32' inseam and the Large fits like an absolute glove. I'm waiting just a bit longer for more of a markdown because I'll probably buy 2 more. Well worth the $.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'd been intrigued by these tights from the other reviews, so I decided to pick up a M & L not knowing what size I'd need. At 5'10", 32' inseam, the Medium was SPOT on. Fit like a Castelli Large. The large was just a tad too long, and there was some loosey-goosey stuff going on with the chamois. I felt like I had a load in my diaper.

Anyway, I never got around to riding them, as the chamois was a really odd 2-piece shape. There's a channel down the middle of it that gave me the worst manmal-toe, and really made the boys feel like they didn't know which neighborhood they belonged in. I've returned them both based on the chamois alone. The tights themselves seemed SUPER warm and are probably a killer pair of tights. I guess my scranus is just too picky.

Got these as a gift, and I gotta say they are some great leg warmers. The wind block turns any pair of bibs into a sweet pair of winter tights. Super warm and their wicking properties are stellar. Every time I pull them off after a ride, I'm amazed by just how dry and warm my legs are, and how wet the warmers are from pulling away the sweat. I have a 32' inseam, and wear a size L. They fit pretty good although there is ever so slight bunching behind the knee. Totally not an issue, but I've been accused of being too "princess & the pea" (take that however you like...).
I think it's just my leg shape though. The medium was just a tad too tight. Great stuff.
