Very short arms

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My arms are pretty normal in size, I think, but the sleeves on this base layer are very short.

I compared it to the non-"Wind" version of this item: lined up the seams under the arms and there is well over an inch in difference. Looks like a mistake by Castelli. (Attached pic exaggerates difference because of angle.)

Brr, cold wrists. Returning it.

High quality shorts.

Seemed kinda long on the thighs when first tried on at home but once riding they somehow fall into place at a more normal length just right without bunching. Rode a 100 miles in them and forgot all about them. Recommended.

Got a S/M (only size left) hoping it would fit. It did. Comes out of the box tiny but stretches a lot. It's tight but I liked that. Could feel it around the neck at first but then forgot all about it once riding. Giant red plastic Castelli badge front and center under collar is a bit annoying. Super meshy. Great for clubbing in Berlin. Not says 68-86 F range but I wore it riding a little hard under a light jersey in 70 F and I was getting too warm.

Got these in the same size as the equivalent Velocissimo 3 Bib tights which I love but these are a tighter fit. Waist and straps feel tighter. Riding the end of the legs would slowly shift up to under my knee instead of staying mid-calf.

After maybe 4 rides the mesh holding the plastic foam/gel on the palm has broken and the bright yellow material is coming out.

Other than that hey are a strange combination of warm-ish and super vented (thin mesh on the top pf the hand). Wearing them in the low 40 easily. Not great looking.
