Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I know, most of us cyclists love to go about talking on the details of everything involving our bikes. This time, I want to keep it simple. I haven't used too many brands on Handlebar tape, but from all that I've used or ridden with this cork tape from Cinelli makes me seriously consider not buying anything else other than another of the same set AND COLOR (classy cork).
Easy to install, resistant, comfortable and classy. Enough tape to wrap it the way you want, with more or less stretching.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Ok, I know Castelli tends to be a size smaller but this one (Medium) did not fit my wife that is super fit and thin. It was a complete joke, the straps are ridiculous and roll in like mentioned by other member. The material is see through, does not take much to figure it out. Returning it and getting something else.

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

I have been really happy with De Marchi products just like the other reviewer, but I was unfortunate with this one. I felt really nice out of the package, light and lots of breathability. The half zip kinda looked weird at the beginning and it looked poorly stitched at the bottom of the zipper junction with the shirt fabric. It turned out that after 2 rides the stitch came apart and a big hole was formed. I returned it and will buy a different model, maybe from De Marchi, maybe not.
It is a race fit, I had a Castelli that had the same fit but felt uncomfortable, this one was tolerable. I am a 6 foot at 185lbs wearing a XL, snug but okay since my chest are bigger than my stomach.

I got these as my first legitimate pair of bibs after purchasing some chinese ones on ebay. Although there was nothing wrong with those I could clearly feel the difference in quality when comparing the De Marchi. Very comfortable, the chamois does the job, texture feels great and its light too. I like the old italian classic look so prob gonna purchase more from this brand. Great product.
