Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

To be honest, the jacket doesn't like a standard Castelli jacket, it's not a super fitted cut and the stitching looks iffy in some areas. It is a good deal for the price point, it's lightweight, breaks the wind and offers additional protection for quick drops in temp. When folded nicely, it fits in a saddle bag and will save your ride when you're in a bind and need another layer. I bought an XL for a 6'5" 210lb man.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I began cycling when I used to live in Arizona and knew I had to own this shirt as soon as I saw it. It's NextLevel cotton, so it's very soft and the cut is nice, however, the sizing on this is way off. I'm short(5'2"-5'3") and curvy (130lbs) and normally wear a size small in t-shirts. This shirt in a small fit like a children's size 8. Also, I received it without the tag on it, so I'm assuming it was a return from someone else that wasn't happy with the size. Bit of a bummer of an experience, but I'm just going to exchanging it for a large.

***UPDATE: I bought the Large and I love it! The size Large definitely fits like a Small Patagonia or Outdoor Research t-shirt

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I bought these for my husband, he's 6'5" with a 35" inseam and tree trunk quads, these would have been awesome if he had shorter legs and smaller quads. The material is comfortable with a generous multi-directional stretch and the slip-resistant band at the top appeared to be comfortable. Unfortunately, they don't fit him well and they had to be returned.

I'm a sucker for the preppy and modern cuts and fabrication, plus I really like bike commuting everywhere. This shirt is my new favorite shirt, I picked it up in both the gray and the blue color. The cut is super flattering and the stiff collar and structured placket contrast the lightweight fabric perfectly. I LOVE this shirt.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these for my husband who rides in the early mornings and complains about jackets being a hassle and early mornings being too cold to ride in just a jersey. Here's what he had to say about these: "These work and fit as advertised. I haven't put them to use on a super cold day yet, but so far so good. Read the size charts and break out the tape measure, I'm glad someone forced me to measure my arms... the charts seems to be accurate from my experience."
My husband is 6'5" and roughly 215lbs, he wears an XL in these.

Update: it's now in the low 40s in Portland and my husband is still riding early a.m. rides in short sleeve jerseys with these arm warmers. They have been washed at least 2 dozen times and they look great and are holding their black color well. I don't advise putting them in the dryer - it's not good for the elastic band.

I bought this for my husband, he puts in anywhere from 100-150 miles a week on his road bike. I was eager to get him into a helmet with MIPS technology. Here's what my husband, Diego had to say: "My wife got this helmet for me to replace my trusty old Bell. She said an awful lot about MIPS helmets and how they are the best at protecting brains against TBIs. She also says the acronym TBI a lot, wives/mothers seem to be obsessed with preventing TBIs. I must say that I have yet to crash in this helmet... so I can't review its' effectiveness. Yet. I will say that it looks cool, and fits me well. At first I had trouble with the rear strap, it was digging into the back of my head in certain positions (it's not padded or thicker, like other helmets I have used), but I eventually found out how(my wife showed me) to adjust the strap. I've ridden several times with this helmet and I seemed to have solved the issue. All in all I am happy with this helmet."

I picked these up for my husband, Diego, he
has been riding harder and more frequently, so it was time to add to his collection of kits. I don't think he's too stoked on them, as they get worn the least. Here's what Diego has to say about them: "I know these are not your top of the line endurance shorts, but the Chamois on these is pretty weak. I have taken them on a few rides, and while the gore fabric feels great, the chamois doesn't hold a candle to some of the other bibs i have ridden in. I'll wear these, but not during any races. I won't ask for another pair of these and I won't lose any sleep when I have to replace them. "

Bought this jersey a few weeks ago for my husband, he needed to replace one that got torn in a crash. Here's what he had to say about it, "This one seems to be fairly nice. The fabric is lightweight and extremely breathable, which is perfect for the weather this time of year. Everything else is as advertised. My only minus for this jersey is that it fits a bit larger than i was hoping. It is not unreasonably large, but I ordered an xl, and probably should have grabbed a large if I wanted that tight 'aero-fit'. Other than a size change, I would order again."
