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

Gasped at the thought of dropping this kinda of money on knickers but after wearing middle of the road LG and PI's I decided to step up. Trevor helped me with sizing and didn't try to up sell but basically said, they all wear them and love them AND they got them to me in two days! I'm 5'10 and fluctuate between 180 and 205 and they are at my weight limit right now and still feel great. They should fit even better as I burn off my winter weight. The S5 chamois is thick but wow what a difference in what I'm used to wearing, absolutely no soreness or irritation. I knew the quality was gonna be top notch as I bought some of their socks and sock liners. I tend to run hot so 60F is my max for these. They only problem is now finding shorts that are this nice, time to make room to move into the "kukupenthouse" with the S7 they offer. Thanks again CC and Trevor for hooking me up

Wanted something to replace my Addidas Climawarm jacket which has not let me down but wanted a winter weatherproof jacket a few steps up that didn't cost me half a paycheck. Wore this jacket on a 1.5 hour 5 degree mtb ride with a Craft Active extreme base layer. This jacket worked great and was warm the entire time. It is cut so it feels awkward standing but once you get into riding position it works. My only thing I have noticed is the cuffs should have a thinner material so putting winter gloves over or under weren't such a chore. I'm sure they're much nicer jackets but this is solid performer for the price. That's my two cents which might not be worth sh*t.

Winter weight at 200ish lbs, the XXL fits great with enough room for a thick winter base layer. Tested it with a Specialized thin base layer on a 2 hour 35 degree road and was a tad chilly but still worked great. Extremely satisfied with it, looks great and seems to be pretty versatile.

Super thin, good coverage and doesn't irritate my head like some of the thicker wind blocking caps and bands. This replaced a PI Barrier band I lost which was ok but love the simplicity of this and it's bright!

Just what I needed for my non wind proof riding clothes. I fluctuate between w32-36 and got the large. Fit was perfect, no chamois, blocked the wind on a 32C road ride and the material doesn't irritate the skin even when worn underneath the chamois. I digging Craft products!

I would be single again if my girlfriend knew that I paid $60 for socks but was looking for something other than wool. I must say the quality and materials on these are super nice. I finally got to test them out on a road ride with only a thin Defeet wool sock underneath. Temps were in the mid 30's so after an hour I my feet had enough but would attribute that to the thin Defeet sock. I have some thicker wool socks that could cure that. As stated below large slots on the bottom and top for toe warmers.

Finally got to test these out on 1.5 hour road ride in 35 degree with 15mph winds in Missouri. No complaints other than no wind blocking material in the crotch area meant a certain member turned into a popsicle. Fit, chamois and overall warmth are good but may break out my Gore wear ALP X thermo's below the 40's.

Finally got to try these out on a 1.5 hour road ride in 35 degree weather with a 15mph wind in St. Charles, MO. A big big step up from the thermal PI toe covers I was using. I tested these out a with a thin Defeet merino wool socks and Mavic shoes. I was starting to feel a little coldness towards the end but a beefier sock might help that.

Finally got to test them on a 35 degree road ride with about 15mph winds in St. Charles, MO. They are heavily insulated and gloves like these don't breath well so eventually my hands did sweat thru the palms but didn't affect the warmth factor. All in all I'm happy with them. My finger tips have never been the same since getting frost nip last year:-(
