Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

Good light trail runner with some cushion but not too much. I haven't put these through the wringer yet but like them so far. I have worn through pairs and pairs of Wildcats but wanted less drop, the Helios offers that in a lightweight shoe. Beware, it runs really small. I wear a 45.5 in the Wildcat and had to go 46.5 in the Helios. Normally I wear an 11.5 street shoe and 12 running.

Have taken these bibs out for a few rides since I got them and really like them. Things I like:

1. Great chamois, good coverage and comfort where you want it without being overly bulky.
2. Grippers. The bottom cut of the short is precise and holds tight around my legs comfortably. There is a touch of silicone hits for extra friction if paired with warmers.
3. Style is nice. Black shorts without being boring.

I'm in between a Medium and Large - 6ft, 155-160, 33in inseam. Depends on how you like your shorts I guess.

Good lightweight jersey for those hot days. It definitely feels and fits "lighter" than the other Realcyclist team jersey model which is good for the most part:

Good: Cool, lightweight, offers sun protection, nice full zipper.

Not so good: The lighter fabric sits a little looser next to skin - doesn't have the normal snug feeling and feels like it drapes a bit. Sleeves seem a little longer than I would like. Maybe size down on your normal size if you like a snug fit.

Super light short that is adjustable and offers good range of motion for any activity you can think of. I have a size 32 waist by most brands and these shorts fit spot on. Not a lot of room for me to pack on any extra lbs though. Length came down to right above the knee, pretty much perfect. Don't see any reason to not throw these a five-star review.

These are my go to bibs right now. The chamois is great but I really like the fit of the shorts best and the "smooth face" fabric talked about in the product description. Good muscle supporting short that still allows good range of motion when pedaling. I recommend these to all cyclists out there. True to size in terms of other bibs I have bought.

Can't get enough of merino wool for everyday wear and also performance apparel. I honestly don't know why anyone would ever wear a synthetic after putting on a merino shirt to run in. It breathes better than synthetics, doesn't drape on you like a tarp when it gets sweaty, doesn't stink after wearing, and is super soft. If you run/bike/hike, you need to try merino wool.

I normally run trails in La Sportive Wildcats so making the transition to a road runner took a few runs but I love this shoe. Very light breathable upper, good neutral platform that lets you feel the road. Definitely notice and like the fulcrum tech that gets you moving forward. I don't normally run roads, but when I do I prefer the Karhu Fast2. Stay thirsty my friends. (I normally wear size 12 in Sportiva's, I went 11.5 in the Karhu's)

I've been running in light-midweight merino wool for the over a year now and am sold on it. It breaths great, can keep you warm on cooler days, and also doesn't get the perma-stink of synthetics. So when Icebreaker came out with this jersey it was a no-brainer and as always I wasn't let down. For a first run of a jersey, icebreaker nailed it. Great cut, not too tight, but not too loose, good style, grippers, nice pockets & zippered pocket, and overall great attention to detail. I bought a medium which is what I normally wear and it fits great.
