OK for the price I paid
4 5

I got it on sale, and for that price it's good. It's a super warm jacket (I'm always cold!) and should be worn at or below 50F. As mentioned before me, the fit is awkward. Loose in the belly, and tight in the arms and shoulders. I'm 5'6", 110 lbs, 82 cm chest, 64 cm waist and 84 cm hip. Normally XS in Castelli. Got both the XS and S in this jacket, but sent back the S, as the mid-section was far too loose and only offered marginal gains in the arms. Kept the XS, hence true to size (see picture). I suppose you shouldn't need to wear much under the jacket anyway, it's that warm.

Criticism for Competitive Cyclist: The picture is not accurate. Expected a yellow detail (I have a yellow bike) but got orange.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have the bib version, and the seams immediately frayed and even got a small hole in the short! The padding is thick and bulky. I hated that at first (coming from the slim yet dense Castelli chamois), but that has grown on me. I do reach for these shorts for long rides (60+ mi). The sizing is super large. I'm an S in Castelli, which is very snug, and the XS here is too big. It's not horribly big, but I prefer my shorts to be super snug, instead of just barely touching my skin. 5'6", 110lbs, 84cm hip, 64cm waist

Too big!!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Tried XS (which is my normal size in other brands, Ale, Rapha, high end Pearl Izumi) but it was loose. Same with the Superrelaga (sp?) jacket, the XS was too big. I have Castelli Free Aero pants in a Small, so I'm confused why 2 Castelli tops are so large. Also no smaller size available. My height is 5'6", weight is 108-110 lbs. (Note: I'm going for a race fit).
