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

I bought these to replace a pair of lost Smith Pivlock's that I had been wearing for about a year. I went out today on a 90 mile ride with about 90min of group riding here in the Silicon Valley. In comparison to the Pivlock, the Jawbreaker is heavy, has inferior peripheral vision, poor ventilation, and collects sweat inside the lens. I've owned the Oakley Radar and M-Frame and while those don't offer as much overall protection, they are way better glasses. The Jawbreaker may work for some, but I did not like wearing them at all. Verdict: retuning item.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This Mangussta jersey is the best jersey Assos has yet to put out. The fit is improved over the Uno, Mille, especially the arms and the pockets. I'm 6'2" 175lb and wear a size large in the Mangussta where I wear medium in the Uno and Mille. The pockets sag too low on the Mille and the materials and design of the Uno are of lower quality. The Mangussta fits me beautifully and it's also a smart looking piece of kit. Not too flashy or busy. It looks classy. The real testament to this jersey is something you will hopefully never experience. I crashed hard going downhill and slid across the road on my back and shoulder. When I picked myself up I was bleeding everywhere and my brand new Mangussta and NeoPro shorts were filthy and blood soaked. I was surprised to find my Jersey and shorts were not ripped! I soaked the clothes in Oxy Clean overnight and washed them. I won't say they were as good as new but they looked pretty damn good and I must admit I feel a little bit badass riding with some scuffs on my jersey. Crashing is bad enough without ruining a $400 kit. Assos makes tough and durable clothing. Well worth the money if the fit is right.
