Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket was everything I had been looking for: vest with sleeves to add for a jacket, front pockets and a rear pocket, high vis, 2 way zipper, fits well. Unfortunately it isn't warm at all. Barely blocks any wind. I've ridden it from 40-70 degrees, with and without sleeves, with different jerseys underneath. It is good for high vis (I bought orange), not for warmth. If the material were thicker and blocked wind, and the shoulder area on the vest was solid, not mesh, it would be perfect. Really it is only good as a super thin layer.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Before ordering I throughly researched winter bibs, and these seemed to be everything I wanted. They are fleecy on the inside, have a pad, offer wind protection, and have zippers for pit stops. Perfect! Too bad they run two sizes too big. I'm 5'4", 100 pounds and ordered an XS. These were baggy in the butt, baggy in the legs, and just generally too big. Passed them off to a friend who is 5'5" and normally a women's medium. They fit her perfectly. 5 stars for quality, minus one for size.

I have a pair of the men's canvas freeriders (men's 6.5) that are fine but the ankle is wide enough to let trail dirt and pebbles in to my shoes. Also the men's version the arch is in the wrong place for my foot. Annoying but been wearing them for years, so ok enough. When the women's version went on sale I bought a pair in the comparable size. My usual athletic shoe size is a women's 8 and that's what I ordered. Arch is in the right place and they fit as expected. However, when riding in them my feet fall asleep. First the toes, then the heels. I have narrow to average width feet. I thought maybe I had them laced too tight so I loosened the laces. Nope. Still happens.

When comparing the women's and men's shoes side by side the women's comes up MUCH higher in the back and around the ankle and has significantly more padding in the insole, on the tongue, and around the ankle. This is the only thing I can think of that causes my feet to fall asleep.

They have only been worn twice and are in like new condition, but the return policy is 30 days, which I'm past, so I guess I'm stuck with them.

I have had these for a couple of years. They need to be 2" longer above the knee, 2" longer below the knee, and have padding all the way to both ends. If my pedal comes back and smacks my shin it isn't covered at all in the right place. Above the knee I've had a bar end dig into my thigh just above my knee where there is no padding. They are a good idea poorly executed.

I have two pair of these capris. They hit right below my knee (I'm 5"4'). The fit is very comfortable whether I ride 50 miles road or 3 hours mountain. No chafing issues anywhere. Pretty much across the board in cycling wear I'm a small, which is true with these. I would like to know which chamois these have as I tried to order a pair of Gore shorts, thinking they would fit similarly, only to have the shorts be much too small and the chamois all wrong. If I want these just shorter what should I get?
