Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Very light, very tight. If you're in between sizes, I'd recommend going up. It's made to fit against the skin. That makes it a bit tough to get on and off, but this one is my go-to base layer. I've worn it on cooler days and even on extra-hot days. It does seem to keep me dryer than with a jersey alone.

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

I've just had a couple rides in it, so file this under 'Initial impressions.' But I think it's my new favorite jersey. Great material, craftsmanship, and fit. Some of my other jerseys with good rear-pocket storage fit a bit too loosely; alternatively, my jerseys that fit nice and tight (as I like them) sometimes have tiny rear pockets that can't be used very easily. This jersey has the best of both, all while fitting and looking sharp.

This has quickly become my favorite go-to jersey. The material is very light without feeling cheap or flimsy. It's the most flexible and elastic material I've felt in a jersey and it feels great while wearing it. It's reinforced at the hem and around the zipper. I'd say that it runs true to size, but is made to fit tight.

While it sure does fit snug, it also feels like like armor against cool weather. It has a very solid construction, and the windstopper keeps out the cold. Thankfully, the sleeves are a bit longer, so it's easy to pair with arm warmers without that annoying gap at your triceps. I'd take this over a jersey+vest combination any day.

I wanted a do-it-all wheelset that would excel at climbing, and settled on the 202s. Glad I did. They're light, responsive, and durable enough for everyday use. (For a race-only wheelset, I might have considered 303 tubs, but wanted to stick with clinchers.) I live in a windy area, and I'm a lightweight rider, so it's nice not to be blown around in the crosswinds too much.

I was upgrading from a set of Campy Shamals, which are fantastic alu wheels, but I can feel the difference with these. I've quickly lapped up a couple thousand miles of regular training and sportives -- including some rough Belgian cobblestones and backwoods Texas potholes -- and they have been flawless so far. (A hub required some tightening early on, but it was an easy fix.)

I love this long-sleeved jersey. The material is thin, soft, and very comfortable. It seems well-constructed so far. I get lots of use out of it in cool weather, but this is not a tight, race-fitting piece of gear. (For example, it's cut much looser than a Gabba or most of Castelli's jerseys.) It has a looser, club-fit kind of feel to it. If you're OK with that, this will serve you well.

Most features of these bibs are excellent: they fit great, have a nice insulated fabric, and great grippers below the knees. However, for the purposes of cold-weather riding they seem to suffer from what I'd consider a design defect -- the middle crotch panel is extremely thin and useless against the wind. These might be good to layer underneath other clothes, as the description suggests, but they won't really do on their own. Unfortunately the only thing keeping them from being top-notch bibs is that curious crotch panel.
