Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The jersey in among the nicest of the fabrics I've handled so far for this sport. It's not that 100% polyester sandpaper, or with 2% spandex. I don't know that I'd wear this lounging around the house, but it's a really big improvement in comfort. The muted color scheme is also nice versus the sometimes garish jerseys which are so common. What continues to drive me up the wall is the sizing is so far off it's frustrating and annoying and now getting expensive for returns. I'm going to stop buying cycling clothing online. I wear men's medium t-shirts, for example. And understand for cycling jerseys I need to size up to XL, at least. This particular shirt, even in size XL, I could hardly get past my bicep, and the zippered front barely came around the side of my body. At first this Asian sizing for cycle wear was frustrating; now it's annoying. Really wasting my time. Sellers need to wake up and put some thought into their product descriptions. I may as well purchase from my LBS and pay 25% more and save myself the aggravation.

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

I think these are great shoes for what they are. Meaning shoes which are close to hard shoes like the guys use for racing, but still flexible enough to walk around. And the cleat is recessed so you can hardly hear it clack when you're walking on the street holding your bike. The tread is really aggressive and I can see how people would use these shoes for grabbing through mud. Very aggressive tread. I wear typically size 11.5 sneakers and the size 44.5 was just 1/8 inch too small, and the size 45 the same amount too large. I would have kept the shoe anyway and just a slightly thicker sock. Nevertheless I'm returning the shoe because I really don't like the style (color combination). The BOA lacing system is most excellent in my opinion. I have this on my Winter Mountaineering Boots and also my snowshoes. Quick and easy to tighten quickly and evenly as tight or loose as you want.
