Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am a loyal Castelli customer and pretty much only wear Castelli on the bike. I always buy a medium. Some Castelli mediums are more snug than others. This medium is very snug in the shoulders and across the back - but I am ex-swimmer and still haul around larger than average shoulders. I will say that its smallness does not bother me when riding.

Now - onto performance - its a great winter piece. I can layer a base layer top or light weight jersey under it and wear it for a 40-50 degree ride. I can put a performance wool t-neck under it and be completely comfortable on a 30-40 degree ride. It has perfect length coverage in the back. The arms are slightly long for me, but not bothersome, and I have shorter than average arms.
Overall - a smart looking piece that keeps you stylish while being very versatile for different weather conditions.
