Have to agree with the other review here. The hand opening is so small there is no way I could get my hand in without tearing the gloves apart. Ordered an XL as I have several other Castelli gloves in XL and they have been fine. Even the ones with no closure like these.

My wife tried these on and her small hands just fit comfortably in the opening but once on the gloves were huge on her hands.

Otherwise these look like nice glove. Returning.

I'm probably going to be in the minority but these shorts are not worth the money and do not live up to all the hype, to me anyway. The best thing about these shorts is the Kuku Penthouse, it does what they claim and other bibs could benefit with this addition. Otherwise the shorts did not do the job. First the chamois is too small and my sit bones were right on the edge of the chamois at the back end but in the center there was too much padding material on the sides and it hung down on the side of the saddle chafing my inner thighs. Also the transition from the padded area to the side is done with an additional strip of material sewn in which tends to chafe me. The worst part though is where the padding material is left out in the middle for perennial relief. This area pinch my soft tissue so badly I developed two hard peanut size saddle sores....not good. I cannot recommend these bibs.

I usually do a weekly century + or 200k + brevets and these are the most comfortable bibs for all day riding I have ever used. And I use and love Assos, Capo and LG's, but these are a notch above for distance riding. I have been riding the Total Comfort Bibs which were great but these are even better. They have just a bit more compression which I like, they are light weight, the legs stop an inch or so above the knee and they stay in place with no rubbing or chafing.

As far as the pad....its the best I've used, including my current Assos Equipe's. Some may think it too much but I've use thick pads in the past which feel thick and get bunched. These feel just right and have the most padding where needed for long days in the saddle.

Not sure why more people don't use these.

These have become my favorite bibs, especially at less than $110.00. Fit is supportive and I love the silicone leg grippers. I don't like the trend of wide leg bands without grippers since most of the time they just don't work for me. Chamois is excellent. The straps are narrow and feel a bit short but while riding on 60+ mile rides I never think of them. Sorry to see the price going back up some or I might have purchased another pair. I'm 6', 172 lbs. and large fits perfectly.

This bib is a good value for the price though I probably would not use it for rides more than 2 hours. I prefer a bit more compression in my bibs but again for the price these are really ok. The chamois is thinner than I usually like but not uncomfortable, but I would not do a century in them.

Great fit, lightweight with minimal padding. I was worried that the padding would not be enough but after several rides I actually prefer it to gloves with denser padding. Buying second pair as they are a great deal right now.
