I ride year-round in rainy Vancouver, and these are the best -- though by far the priciest -- booties I've ever used. They keep my feet almost completely dry in 2 - 3 hr. rides in heavy rain; at the end my shoes and socks are only a bit damp, probably partially from sweat. Note I use waterproof, breathable, full-length pants that completely cover the tops of the booties so no water comes in from the top. As others noted, they fit VERY snugly, to the point it takes 2-3 minutes to put them on, and can be difficult to zip up completely, so try before you buy. (I use Sidi size 43.5, the booties are size XL, and I wish I had tried XXL. Castelli says size L should fit; I tried an L pair and they were virtually impossible to get on.) Once on, they've very comfortable, a bit snug around the ankle but this doesn't bother while riding. Overall, I'd buy them again. But only on sale!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the best rain glove I've used, and I live in Vancouver where it rains all winter but temps are mild (usually 35-45F). They're on the cool side but I don't mind (my hands sweat a lot). Fit a bit large, but I often put liners inside. Like any waterproof breathable fabric, you do get a little clammy inside, but that's par for the course -- I just bring merino liners along and put them on when stopped mid-ride for coffee; problem solved.

I've had quite a few floor pumps, and from magazine reviews expected the Lezyne to be superior. It's not; it's OK: certainly not the smoothest and most comfortable pump I've used, though not the worst either. So: adequate.

The screw-on head is either a blessing or a curse. A blessing if your valve is hard to lock a normal head onto. (And it works dandy on their pocket pumps, as it's generally much trickier to keep the pump head on while fixing repairs beside the road in the rain.) But it's a curse if it unscrews your valve core when you unscrew the head after you pump up the tire. This actually happens a lot, and the escaping pressure can easily blow the valve core 10' away so you lose it. (Big problem on the road if you don't have a spare tube!) My solution is to try to buy only tubes with non-removable cores (increasingly hard to find) or to Loctite the valve cores in place before I use the tubes. A pain, but it works.
