5 5

I wore these with PI Elite Escape Bib shorts underneath. Temps in upper 30's. The only time I thought about my legs was when they started getting tired on my 1 hr road bike road. Although it wasn't windy, I didn't notice any cold air on my downhills. I'm 5'7, 180 lbs. sz M. They were snug but fit like they should. I like the ankle zipper with zipper garage. Fleece lined inside and soft. I thought I might experience some discomfort on the back of my knee due to possible gathering of extra material there which didn't occur on my ride. The version of this with Chamois is an extra $14.

I wore the Castelli Flanders sz L (5'7 ; 180 lbs ; 42 chest) with a Castelli Espresso 4 jacket (sz XL). During my 1 hr road ride I had sweat on my upper back and a little bit on my tummy. Temperature was in the upper 30's hardly any wind. I opened the vents on the jacket which helped. I figure with this combination I can get into upper 20's easily with vent zippers on jacket closed. The Flanders in this size was very form fitting but not restricting for me. The inside is nice and very soft. The perforated arm holes add extra breathability. Can't give it four stars, as I just started riding late last summer and don't have anything to compare it too. Having just said that you should also take this review with a grain of salt, as I'm a newbie.

Size M, true to size in my opinion. I wore the gloves during a mid winter day with the temperature in upper 30's. My hands were extremely comfortable on this 1 hr ride. It took a little getting used to them and shifting more so than braking. I like the soft area at the base of thumb to wipe a dripping nose. Maybe next generation they can upgrade the index finger for touch screen capability. Still gets a 5 star rating.
