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

I was super impressed with this jacket. It's quite thin, but still kept me warm without overheating. Wore this on a ride where the temp stayed at around 30 F (although sunny). I had a Craft Extreme 2.0 baselayer and a summer jersey. I was a bit cool, but never cold and felt pretty comfortable as I warmed up over the ride. The jersey seemed to vent really well I never felt too hot. In similar conditions, I might go for a thicker base layer. The Shimano jacket itself, however, great. For sizing, I am normally an M in Shimano stuff and originally purchased an M which I exchanged for an L. This isn't quite as small as European brands' sizing, but I wanted to be able to layer for the extra cold days.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

While others have said that this runs small, I actually thought it was a bit large for a race-cut jersey. For race-cut Euro sizes, I am usually in between a large and a medium. Since other reviewers mentioned that it runs small, I assumed that a large would be perfect. For me, the sleeves and shoulder areas felt too loose. I ended up exchanging it for a medium. While the medium is a bit tight, it seemed a better option than the large, which would have been too flappy. I expect a race-fit jersey to basically be skin tight so, with that expectation in mind, I would say it runs a bit large.
I have not yet used it, so cannot comment on how it performs. It looks well constructed, however, and I think it will be a nice jersey for times that are especially hot. Since it is a bit tight, it won't be a regular jersey and it would not have been worth the regular price for me. I purchased this at a big discount, however, and I think that this will be a nice jersey to have for rides on hot days.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The fabric and cut all seemed nice, but the legs were very long. The cuff ended right at my knee and would have been uncomfortable on a ride. Since the length extended past the quad, it was also quite flappy at the end. I don't think of myself as having particularly short legs, but these were too long for me. I returned without wearing them, so I can't comment on how they feel on a ride.
