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

I am eager to see how they do in the real cold, but they were great for my 50 degree ride. As the description above suggests, the nicest thing is that they are warm but don't bunch behind the knees. And, unlike another thermal set I have, they seem to block the wind well around the groin. As I saw in a review elsewhere, do be aware that they are a bit slicker than many other shorts/tights.

Originally got the medium since I can often fit American size medium, but it was too tight in the upper body and especially across my little bit of a gut.

Moved up to a large and found that to be better -- although still a little peaking of my gut when not riding.

Most importantly, it covered me well and felt great on my ride. Did exactly what I expected. I did ride right at the upper extreme of the recommended temp, so it did get a little warm. But I simply unzipped a little and felt better.

And, the padding was nice. It felt like there may actually be more padding in the front, which was kind of nice as too much padding in the back often feels a bit too awkward for me.

There's not much I'd change. Although the black and red, which I prefer the look of could use some of the reflectivity that the orange one has (which is what I had purchased in the medium.

Personally, the fit was great. Medium, my normal size, was right-on. I like that it holds tight across the chest and stomach, but not prohibitively so. And the length in the back is great.

I think my only complaint is that it take some getting used to putting on the sleeves after you take them off. Hard to remember exactly how to align the zippers. But, they do have labels as to which is left and right.

It's a great jersey, but if you have an extra poundage in your stomach area, it's going to be tricky. The tight fit means it'll pull across your stomach some. More importantly, it'll run short. I picked up another Giordana jersey with a looser fit and it's not as bad in terms of length. So, if you really must do this one you should size up.
