They're like the regular sorpassos, but these are noticeably warmer.

They're a typical Castelli fit. I wear a small in all the Castelli clothes except for the Idro, which I wear a medium. I have a lot of Castelli: several jerseys short and long, gabba, perfetto, alpha jacket, vests.

For me, this is warm enough in the 25*F and up range. I'm in CT and it has been a bit warmer, so I haven't tested them when it gets below 20. I have the sorpasso tights as well, and these are definitely warmer. The wind protection has been nice for the blustery cold fronts. So far, these are as warm as the pearl izumi elite amfib bib tights, but the castellis fit so nicely. I wear a small in all castelli wear, and these fit fine.

I'm 5'6 and 140lbs. My legs are considered muscular as well as my calves.

First FIT: Fits small. I usually wear a small in Castelli and on the border of small and medium with tights. I got a Large in the leggings and they are still snug, which I'm glad I did.

PERFORMS great in the wet. Most of my wetness in the shoes comes from runoff of the calves into the tops of my booties. NO MORE!

At night, the reflective calves glow. Several drivers have slowed down to tell me that they could see me way down the road.

Runs true to Castelli size. I wear a small in Castelli jerseys, jackets and shorts, and this one fits perfectly as a small.

I use this as a layer underneath my alpha jacket during the winter. I use it as a layer underneath my summer jersey in the fall and late spring, which the wind block obviates the need for a vest. It breaths so well since the wind block is only in the front.

It's my most used layering piece. Since I ride 6 times a week, I have six of these.

I bought the fluo, which is loud enough for cars to see.

I'm in hot and humid weather, and this jersey is cool.

I've had some other jerseys and this one has the right amount of stretch so as not to feel tight in the arms or underarms or shoulders.

I wear a small in most clothes and the small fits fine.

I've only had two kinds bib shorts: these and the Castelli Team Bibshorts. These are very comfortable for the long rides. The material is also a bit more thicker than the team bibs.

I wear a small, which is a tad tight, but the length is just right. I wear a medium in other makes (voler and pearl izumi).

The fit is very nice and it does not feel like it should keep you warm, but it does and it sheds the perspiration if the temps approach 32 or higher.

I use to feel bundled up and not very mobile with all the layers to keep warm in prior jackets. This jacket feels like you're riding in the autumn fit wise. Now I just got to keep other parts of me warm.

I've ridden in 12* temps with this and was comfortable with a medium weight long sleeve craft and a castelli short sleeve flanders.

The medium fits great. I have a small Mortirolo 3 jacket, which is a bit tight. I'm 5'7, 140lbs and usually wear a small in a castelli jersey.

I'm a bib convert. I've worn them a couple times and have found them very comfortable. They run a tad small compared to another brand (sample size of one other brand). I haven't ridden them in rain yet and will keep you folks posted when I do.
