Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The problem with this and all zippered cycling shoe covers is the zipper. The fits for these are intentionally tight against the shoe. It is very easy to put too much strain on the zipper. I ordered XXL to cover my size 48 shoes. I spend a few minutes each morning trying to get them on without the zipper becoming unlatched. Even with this extra care they have become almost unworkable. I want to stress that I am not a neophyte and I have been wearing cycling covers for 15 years. They simply do not last long. Word to the wise: be very careful putting them on your shoes. For the use I got out of them, I did like them (five stars) because they broke after a month I am downgrading them to three stars.

I have used this a lot and find it extremely useful for rides in the 40F's. I have the thicker Assos Winter base layer that I use for 20F's and 30F's. I have the white in XL. I am 6'1" and 200+ and find the fit is great. I highly recommend this.

Interesting difference between this and the Winter base layer: on this one the zipper is in the middle under your chin while for the Winter it is off to the side. The Winter is also about three times thicker so maybe this would have caused the zip to hit your neck. I've not had any issues with the zip on either.

I have used this daily for the last five weeks in temperatures ranging from 20F to 40F. I have altered the outer jacket but I always wear this as my base layer. This is simply an INCREDIBLE garment. It keeps me warm, fits like a glove, is relatively thin, lets me get rid of heat on uphills, and seems to be incredibly well constructed.

Update: I have been using this all through a beastly winter in temperatures from 10F to 40F. The fit is perfect. Yes, it is snug but no it does not bunch up or feel tight when riding. Given its thickness it is amazing what it accomplishes.

I used these daily for a month. The size was correct (i.e., not too small). I was very careful with them and did like them for cold rides in the 20's and 30's. However, when removing them recently the zipper got misaligned on the right foot and then it disconnected.

I think that this is a common problem with zipper booties. I am going back to my Pearl Izumi quilted velcro booties. They are not as warm but the velcro can't break. I'm tempted to buy some good Assos booties but they are zipper enclosures as well. What is it with the cycling garment industry and their zippers?

If you buy these or any other booties, then I recommend you are VERY careful when putting them on.

While I've never tried any Assos bib shorts (which are supposed to be excellent), these are the best bib shorts I've ever used. The compression and fit are amazing. They appear fairly durable too. They are slightly longer than my other shorts but they also don't have the slip-resistant strip one normally gets with shorts to stop them from riding up your leg. I find the design of these shorts don't need this strip. I highly recommend them. I've also bought a pair of their Corsa 2.0 bib shorts and while I like those shorts I prefer these.

It takes a little time to get these fitted properly to your frame. However, once you have done that they go on and off very easily. The front one keeps a majority of the water off my feet and the rear one works at keeping the water off my behind. This is my second pair. I gave my other one to a friend.

These keep you warm but also allow extra heat to escape out the back panel. Nice long neck piece for tucking into my jersey. You can easily pull up the piece over your mouth and nose or just leave it lower. I was concerned it would be too tight for my big head but I have been really amazed by how good it fits and how well it behaves when being moved on an off my face during a ride. I have been using this daily for the last two months in temperatures from 10F to 40F. It gets a little too warm at the higher temperatures and I use a skull cap underneath below 20F. I should mention that I am bald and so this is my only form of insulation on my head. Great head gear. Better than the one from Pearl Izumi.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used these bibs about ten times. They are great down to about 35F or so. I prefer these to my thicker PI thermal bibs. However, once it gets below 35F I switch to the PI thermal bibs. These are good and thin but there is not much if any insulation below the knee.
