Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

It is very- very light. I've been using this parka for the Frigid winter in New York City under 20's and it is really warm. It has temperature Management system which means I am not sweating when I am inside of the bus or the train, and it has really nice features like the pockets, the fitted hood, the wrist gaiters. I like it a lot. In sizing I usually fit 12-14, I am 5'6" and 160 pounds, The XL was perfectly right.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I have been using these gloves for two extended weekends and riding 81 miles on them and they are quite comfortable, I do not feel any numbness as I used to feel with another pair of gloves. I suffer carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand and these gloves help a lot. The material is breathable and flexible for summer rides which is perfect and my hands are not sweaty or hot on top. Very nice gloves. The only thing I wish they would have a loop in each finger for easy removal, also they are delicate and need to be hand wash with cold water and any soap for delicate garments.

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

My husband found it uncomfortable using this backpack today. He said the whole time was trying to look up through his eyeglass mirror ( he was riding his bike to work ) but the backpack obstructed the view of the cars and he had to turn his torso to look up for cars. The handle on the top of the backpack and the top of the backpack obstructed his neck movement on riding position. He is 6' 6" and 260 pounds. He didn't like it. I used it just once and I didn't have any problem, I am 5' 6" and 156 pounds. I am going to use it for a while and then update my review.

I actually think that Gore bike pants are really good. I have been riding in these since November 2012 in New York City and I've been always dry, and although they do not have a inner layer for cold I use them on top of my tights. They are like a windbreaker... they are long enough to cover the boots if it rains and to allow you comfortably to ride. Sometimes the material on the lower leg rubs my chain but I haven't been caught yet. It doesn't happen to me frequently. I am 5' 6 " and 152 lb. I chose the size XL. For me I do not care if I look baggy, I went for the extra-protection. There are two Velcro attachments and I use the vertical one.

I did a lot of research before buying bicycling shoes because I found out the sizing chart for these shoes is a little bit odd. I followed the reviews on Giro Factress shoes and Giro Solara before buying the Giro Sante shoes. I usually wear 8.5 in US size for all kinds of shoes and the size chart said that I should order 40.5 in Giro shoes. Having in mind that I tend to have wide feet (only a little) I ordered one size up for these shoes (41.5 ) and they fit perfectly like a glove. I tried them with my thin socks that I also ordered and they are very comfortable. Of course you cannot walk a lot around with these shoes because they are designed to use while you are in your bicycle but overall I could say they are comfortable and breathable. Keep in mind order one size up.
