Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love Etxeondo styling, fabric and race cut in general and this jersey is a good example of this brand. I own many of their different bibs and jerseys. Nonetheless, the brand suffers from poor assembly. The stitching comes apart rather quickly, fabric tend to tear and colors may bleed after single wash.

If you can get it at a really low price, its definitely worth it. At full retail or even at small discount, i wouldn't be able to justify the cost. A cycling apparel should last two seasons. Etexeondo may not make though one. I suppose it is intended for high level athletes who may not care for its extremely short life span. If you content to use it just a few times and dispose, this is an excellent product. You will look and feel like a pro.

Purchased a pair for winter riding. I've been using them for some time now and the glove performed as expected. I consider myself having large hands, but I also find Castelli sizing chart one size too small. XXL fits me perfect. Keeping your extremities warm is a highly personal matter. I generally, do not get cold in my hands (although my toes are always cold despite winter shoes, wool socks or neoporine covers), so the gloves keep me reasonably warm in 28-30 F (plus NY wind chill factor). However, I also find Castelli products about 10F too warm compared to their product recommendation guide. All in all, great glove, for $35 can't go wrong.

Nice vest. Very light, compact and indeed wind proof. Sizing is always a gamble. I am about 195 pounds/5.11 height. I tried all sizes from XXL to L, but ended up keeping XL. However, I am XXL in Castelli bibs. My only complain is that the vest does not have back pockets, so you ended up stuffing your under jersey pockets which is not super comfortable but manageable. Use it in the early fall with a pair of arm warmers when using long sleeve jersey is an overkill. Great flexibility.
