Purchased this helmet in matte black. The fit is excellent, looks/feels like a good quality helmet, it's lightweight, and I like the added protection of MIPS. It's subjective, but I think it's a good looking helmet. Can't tell much about ventilation since the weather isn't hot yet. I manage to stick my glasses (jawbreakers) into the front vents and it holds good.

These bibs fit very snug as expected from Castelli gear. Length of the legs is ok. Same chamois as in the Free Aero bibs - i can ride in it for many hrs and be very comfortable. Warm enough into the high 30’s (no rain).
Outside has a slight redish hue, especially at knees, when you have them on. That’s the inside fleece shining through.
I dinged these tights one star because the shoulder straps are a bit short in my opinion. No problem once they are on, and no issues at all when on the bike. However, even though the front is low, it’s nearly impossible to do #1 because the front fabric is not very elastic and the shoulder straps have hardly any stretch left. Dont have that problem on the Free Aero bibs. Hope the fabric/straps will stretch a bit over time.

Fabric is supportive, good chamois. Very comfortable riding +60mi in these. In general I like the fit of these bibs. Tighter than my LG course thermal bibs, which is good. No idea about the rain repelling capabilities. I bought these for warmth. Fabric is brushed thermal on the inside. These will be fine down to 40F with leg warmers. I tried 5 different thermal bibs and liked these the best.
I gave 4 stars cause i dont know yet how well they will hold up.

They look good, quality is good, and they fit me good. I can ride in them for long distances and still be comfortable. Buy when they're on sale. Still not a big fan of the thin straps but works ok. Would ding them 1/2 star for that if i could. Castelli fit is for slender people. If you're not slender or dont like tight stuff, size up.

Quality of this vest looks good. Used it several times now in the beginning of a ride, over a summer or winter jersey. You can stick it in a back pocket when you warm up.
It fits pretty snug but at least it's not flapping. To me sizing looks about the same as other Large size tops I have. I do buy mostly European brands and like my gear to fit snug. If you're not a slender type or don't like a snug fit, you'll need to size up.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Chamois doesn't extend far enough forward and the bands at the bottom of the legs are too tight for my taste. It's difficult to get these bibs on with these tight bands and the silicon on the inside. Disappointing since otherwise the material and quality look very good.
