Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased the Core Mesh at the same time as this. The fit and cut is better then the Core Mesh. It has a lower neck line and a larger neck opening. Overall feel the Core Mesh does a better job keeping me cool and dry especially on the hotter days. That base layer is my go to for hotter and longer rides and the Ice is for shorter or cooler rides.
I think it does an ok job but the value and performance of the Core Mesh is better if you can stand the neck line and fit.

It works surprising well in warm conditions. I found in mid 80's f to 90 degrees it worked very well and you noticed the cooling effect. I did one 95 degree high humidity and I didn't feel the difference. I guess if you are riding in those conditions nothing works. The neck line is high and at first I didn't like it but have gotten use to it. The head hole is on the smaller size but it hasn't stretched out yet. I will add to all my warm weather rides. I also purchased Castelli's Prosecco Ice Sleeveless Base and wore it once. So far the mesh wins hands down. I will use that one a few more times before I write that review.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This is a good size bag for a tube, 2 co's and valve, tire levers, money and a little room left over. I add my own tire levers because I'm afraid the included ones my break. luckily I haven't had to use them to find out. If they work then you have even more room in the bag.
The bag size fits well under the saddle and my legs do not rub on the bag.
The mounting system is great and I do have the adapter on my other bikes so switching is easy but it is important you make sure you have a positive lock. If you are not careful you may not have it fully locked.
I like the fact that it does not strap to the seat post, I think that look is cheesy and it creates a friction point. I have ridden this bike on the rough roads of CT and It has never rattled off.
I do remove the bag when transporting the bike. Why subject it to unnecessary vibrations. I also only use on my road bikes and I think it is great. I would not recommend for mountain biking.
This bag was a gift to my daughter. I use the 430.

The pack itself is very small. Good for a tube, a co cartridge and valve and not much else. More stuff goes in my pockets. I ended up trading up for the larger size. I still use this for quick short rides.

Great winter jacket. Very comfortable on the bike. I really like the inner panel for controlling temperature. I think that feature makes it very flexible in how you use the jacket. The wind block material is very effective and in many cases I wore a short sleeve jersey under the jacket and my arms were fine. The longer back panel is a nice feature. It does fit to the small size. 6 ft and 210 and the xxl is tight around the middle (but what isn't)
