Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are very nice gloves, easy to put on and off, feel comfortable and will keep my hands cozy till around 32F and gets too hot and clammy after 42F.
My first Assos purchase was their winterplus baselayer (was annoyed about the price yet curious to see what it's about) and since then I've been a believer of Assos products; I own tights, base layers, balaclavas, jacket, different gloves and jersey.. Every single Assos garment I owned performs fantastically but sadly these gloves are not up to par with those standards; Within a couple months of use the gel under the palm shifted inside in its housing and folded over itself. I tried and tried but its been impossible to get that piece of gel back to its normal position. The only other time a gel shifted and folded in its housing for me was on a pair of Canari shorts and I never bought anything Canari again.

I think that in comparison Castelli Estremo gloves win with their durability and price. The only thing I like more on the Assos fugu glove in comparison is the zipper closure and the not as tight feel.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Comfortable pants with interesting design....They are insulated knee up, knee down is just windproof fabric which fits like tights, with zippers close to ankles. So these pants! end at your knees, like shorts, and then there are tights attached to the shorts! It's hard to tell from that photo.

Warm? Not really, thighs are fine but shins have no insulation, just wind/water barrier. I would not wear these without a serious base layer if it is less than 50 F outside.

Rain? I haven't been under a serious downpour with these... From what I have seen so far, these pants will get you thru unexpected showers and all... But if the forecast shows rain rain and rain, I reckon the insulation on top of the thigh areas would eventually get wet and heavy..

Pockets? I almost forgot, only one! Seriously, just one small mash pocket.... and 2 zip-up air vents... Ugh!

Pros? very comfortable with cycling shorts under, more breathable than a regular windproof pant, tights around ankle means pants! don't get in the way of chain....

I guess X-over was a hint for pants/shorts/tights design...They are somehow comfortable in the 45-65 Fah. and fit well to your body overall.
