Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm not a fan of lycra or felt-lined arm warmers as lycra does nothing to block the wind and felt-lined always becomes too hot. These are a great middle ground: they take the edge off the cool days but are good when the temperatures rise into the 60s.

The only fault is that they are just not long enough and will inevitably end up poking out of your sleeves. Longer "euro-style" sleeves help a great deal, but even with the longer sleeves these arm warmers will occasionally peak out.

They are now my go-to for rides that will end up mostly in the sun or north of 50 degrees, but only when I am wearing euro-length sleeved jerseys.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've put a little over 2 years and 16,000 miles on this bag. For the most part it has been great: I love the ability to twist off the bag when I need to access it and the included bike levers are surprisingly my favorite pair.

Unfortunately over time the attachments have become worn. First the outside tire lever mount became too loose and I had to move it inside the main compartment, then the ratchet nubs on the twist-lock itself became worn and the bag began coming loose until it eventually fell off during a ride.

Overall it's a very convenient bag so long as you keep an eye on its wear and replace it soon enough. I'll be trying a different type of bag next time in search of the perfect fit.

These are the best shorts I've ridden in this price range. The inseam is slightly shorter (~1cm) than my other shorts and chamois is not quite as good as the top end shorts, but is more than enough for most rides. Size small fits well at 5'7", 135 lbs.

Only bothersome piece is the tag, which is large and right in the middle of your lower back. It can itch from time to time.

The shorts are a nice, tough material and the chamois is very comfortable. Fit on the small was comfortable for me at 5'7" 135 lbs.

The only downside is that during the first wash one of the pieces attaching the liner to the short ripped. I have a feeling this is common with this kind of thin attachment and I can still use the shorts without issue, they just aren't attached to the liner any more.

I own the Humvee lite shorts in size medium and the liner fits decent (slightly larger than I prefer) but the outside short has inches of extra room that I find bothersome. I decided to try these regular Humvee shorts in a size small to reduce the looseness of the outer short, but I found that the liner on these shorts is disturbingly tight. I can get into them, but it is not comfortable and takes some wiggling. The outer short is fine. I decided to return them and get a different brand that has a size that fits me. It's a shame because the shorts seem to be of excellent quality otherwise.

Me: 5'7" 135lbs

These shorts are quite good. Was borderline between small and medium so I ordered a medium. The inner shorts are almost perfect if slightly large, while the outer shorts have a lot of waist left, but the belt keeps them tight. I'm 5'7", 140lbs.

Shorts are lightweight and quite comfortable. Only complaint is that the chamois folds in half a bit and rides up into your crack when you're not on the bike.
