Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Since I found the Sportful brand years ago, this has been my leg warmer of choice - largely due to the fit. I am 6' 4" and wear a size M with these and they are the perfect length and fit. I typically wear these in the low 40's F without issue.

The "no rain" aspect probably works for the first couple of uses, but don't expect much repellency after a lot of uses.

Since I found the Sportful brand years ago, this has been my arm warmer of choice - largely due to the fit. Other arm warmers that I have tried are always to large and slide off. I am 6' 4" and wear a size M with these and they are the perfect length. I used to wear the Black color but have switched to white for better visibility by motorists.

Not really a fan of the latest helmet designs and styles so I hope that Giro will continue to produce this helmet for a long time. I have ridden this on 100F+ days in georgia and down into the 20's wearing this... No complaints. It is so lightweight that I have had to check with my hands a couple of times on cold days to make sure I had my helmet on...

this was definitely my "go to" glove for '14. I've always been a fan of Sportful's gloves and arm/leg warmers. I've really liked previous incarnations of their summer gloves but I don't like the Saxo branding that is on their top end gloves. This glove has just the right amount of palm padding and breathability. Not missing the velcro closure at all. The other problem with last year's castelli gloves is that they stopped paying attention to the inside of the glove where it touches your skin. their summer gloves were rough and unfinished on the inside compared to previous year's. The sportful glove is not cleanly finished on the inside but it also does not become rough so my hands weren't as scratched up as with Castelli. I like this glove so much I've already bought a second set for future use.

Just got these today after trying to find a size that fits through multiple orders. I am 6" 3" & 175 lbs. My size L Castelli Claudio shorts fit absolutely perfectly. I love those bibs and I am trying to find a comparable summer short. So, I went for these. Size L in the "Endurance" are too small. The size XL seem to be right but aren't nearly as comfortable in fit as the claudio and the straps are still quite tight. The legs are shorter cut and the bib straps aren't nearly as flexible.

For all the talk Castelli makes about their Italian craftsmanship of their products, it's beyond disappointing to see the bold "made in Taiwan" stamp on the garment tag. At $180, Extremely overpriced in my opinion. Hopefully I will appreciate these more when it is 95 degrees out.

I ordered these after concluding that overshoes were not really doing the trick.These are expensive for the what they are - socks. The bottom of the sock is so thin, I have to be careful not to rip them putting them on.They do seem to be blocking the wind which is what they are designed to do. Wearing them on top of some rather thick Assos socks, in SIDI shoes with PI cyclone toe covers, they have been keeping my feet warm from temps down to 35F so far.My one major complaint is that the tube part of the sock as it transitions to my leg, is really loose I wish it were a lot tighter to make a windproof seal.These are basically a made in italy gore product with both Gore logos & a Castelli logo stamped on it.
