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

I wrote about this on my blog (http://cmkl.ca/2015/05/18/clif-shot-gels-solve-the-what-to-do-with-the-tab-problem/) but I love the fact that the packaging keeps the tab and the tube together after you open it. Makes it so much easier to open, eat and stow the empty while riding.

Balanced in-saddle snack

I reviewed this on my blog here: http://cmkl.ca/2015/05/13/the-quest-for-good-goo-clif-savoury-gels-margherita-pizza-in-a-tube/ but the tl;dr is:
Tastes surprisingly good. A more nutritionally balanced endurance exercise snack but needs easier access if you want to make it an in-saddle calorie boost. Lots of sodium

This is a great addition to your wardrobe. I'm 5' 10" 140lbs and a small fit me very well. The material is almost sheer so it stretches any which way. It's lightweight and it breathes well, and it doesn't ride up my back when I'm in the drops or leaning forward. Nor does it grab at my armpits or my neck. So that's great.

My only quibble is that it's so stretchy that it can be hard to get things in and out of the rear pockets, especially if the shirt is damp. I would like a slightly stiffer opening for the pockets so that I can pull my gels or phone out without messing about blindly for five or ten seconds.
