These were super comfortable except for one VERY fatal flaw. For some reason, even compared to other Giordana shorts that I own, the chamois is very short in the front. Plus, the seam on the front middle of the short is more pronounced and stiff than in other shorts I own. This adds up to some serious discomfort for your sensitive parts. I had to return them after one test ride to detect the problem and a second one to confirm that there was no way to avoid it...

This jacket is awesome. I went out in 40 degree weather today with this jacket and a medium base layer only (just talking about my torso!) and was perfectly comfortable. It's like magic. Yes, the front is cut way too short when you're standing, but it's perfect while you're riding, becuase there's no bunching/flapping. The styling is very cool, and the zip sleeves and pockets are really handy. As with most Giordana, size the heck up -- I can get away with a L in Pearl Izumi or Descente, and here I got a XXL and it fits great. The price on Bonktown cannot be beat.

These feel great when you put them on -- soft and comfortable. Plus, they did a really good job keeping my hands warm in 40 degree weather (below 35 they will probably need glove liners). But the problem is that this same coziness gives you less dexterity. This is a common problem with winter gloves, but compared to my previous pair of Descente Wombat Gloves, these just felt a bit "squishy." Still, getting them for $10 on bonktown was a steal, and they'll be great gloves on certain days!
