I ride in Arizona, and before anyone wonders why I'd need this jacket, let me explain that winter morning rides can start with temps in the 30's and 40's.... so it's not all sun baked deserts! :-)

Anyway - the jacket fits like a glove (large for my 6'2'' 185 lb frame), the sleeves are not only removable, but also a generous length so there's no gap at the wrist. It keeps out the wind (not sure about rain yet) and has a soft lining so could be used solo.

I have a pair of regular Free Aero's also in XL, and this "kit" version runs a little smaller. They feel a little restrictive while walking around, and the straps take a bit of negotiating the get them to lie smooth, but once you are on the bike, the fit makes sense! No slip, no riding up, no loose spots - just great support and an excellent chamois.

typicial Castelli fit, so they run a little small. I'm 6'2", 195 lbs with a 35" waist, so went with the XL and they fit just right.

used them once so far, and they appear very comfortable and move well with you while riding. The chamois is not up to the standard of my free Aero's, but still good.

the side panels include some mesh, which helps with ventilation, but I'll have to see if sunscreen is required when the sun gets higher in AZ!

just received this jersey, so haven't had a chance to ride in it yet. However, it is a snug fit, but not restrictive - which is what I was looking for. I'm 6'2", 195 lbs and I got the XL. It's a bit short, but that won't be an issue with bibs

Update - done a couple of rides, and the fit and materials are great. The zip is a bit delicate though, and can come apart if you aren't careful.

these run true to size and fit really well. I'm 6'2", 200 lbs and the XL fits great - snug and compressive without being restrictive. I've only had a short ride in them so far, but initial impressions are they are durable and comfortable, with no ride-ups, bunching etc. I have fairly large thighs, so the grippers work for me.

note: if you are somewhat modest, stay away from the white color. They aren't see through, but your "manhood" will cast a shadow that will show up on the white material.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

done one 50 mile ride so far, but these appear to be excellent - good fit, supportive and good for warm weather rides (Arizona). They run larger than the LG Equipe shorts I have. I am 6'2", 195 lbs, 35" waist and the XL fit well, but I could probably have done with the Large size (no way the large size Equipes would work for me)

update - should have got the large. The XL's fit, but the material gets a bit slack around the thighs (note: I have the Corsa 2 bibs in XL, and they fit good and snug)

I am 6'2", 195 lbs, 35" waist and the XL fit great & snug.

The good news - great fit and the bibs look great. Very comfortable fit and chamois. The sale price seemed a steal too (I soon found out why)

the not so good news - after 1 ride of 40 miles, I had a large frayed patch in the inner right thigh, so I suspect the quality of material is not up to standard. My Garneau Equipe's have minimal wear after 18 months, so I'm returning these for some Garneau bibs.
