Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I don't know what the 1 star review is talking about. To turn it off you simply hold down the power button for three seconds and it shuts down. There are three settings--the brightest setting
(all 50 lumens) will give you battery life for an hour+. I mainly keep it on the lowest setting (still really bright IMOP) and it will last me at least 5 hours of biking. It's easy to recharge and it takes about 1 hour to get fully charged. Easy to take on and off of the bike. Overall, pretty happy with my purchase.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

My Castelli Free ITU suit called it quits and I exchanged it for this product before my next race. I tried it on and while the fit seemed okay there was a lot of extra fabric around the stomach. The fabric itself felt cheap and left my skin feel itchy. It has two pockets, very tiny, that can hold 1 Gu each. So I really don't recommend the suit to anyone looking to do a 70.3 or longer.

I'm returning it. It just doesn't seem worth the $110. I'd rather spend a little more with better fabric/more comfortable/better pockets.

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

It's really 4.5 stars in my mind, but i'll round up because of how happy I am from it. The lower half of the suit is fantastic, just the right amount of padding so that you have some cushion on the bike but it won't get in your way during the run or swim. The rear pockets to the suit are surprisingly big--you can actually fit an iPhone 6+ in there if you really want to. My only complaint is that the white fabric in front is basically see-through. I walked out with it on and my girlfriend immediately pointed to my happy trail and nipples. However, the visibility does get better when you don't have direct light on you. It breathes very well on the run and the compression felt great around my body during the race. I'd wear this in a 70.3, not sure about 140.6.

I also heard it runs small so I didn't hesitate to order a large. For me, the large is a perfect fit.

I'm cheap. I was hesitant to get these sunglasses but I'm glad I did. They have a high quality feel to them that you won't appreciate until you look at that $15 wal-mart pair you got last season. They fit perfectly, i can look down and shake my head and they don't even wiggle. Perfect for cycling, they've kept a lot of debris out of my eyes!
