Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 176 lbs

I bought it because I would like to know Thaís brand, that have a very Good look, and good brand reputation. Its warm and Good fit, but The Fabric is só fragile that begans to show sign of use in the first day. In the second day it begans to leak pertex in multiples points.

Just in case in your pocket

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 176 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Its light and packable enough to be used at The cycling shirt rear pocket as a just in case layer. Its very good to be used in a hot place, like Brasil, as a Wind protection or a light rain shield. ts not waterproof but maintain your body temperature. I bought size Large.

I used it in a travel with my family, using tap water to refil our water botles. The water allways have the taste of tap water (in Brasil it supose to have chlorine taste) , but not bad at all. Whe didnt notice any sickness or diarrhea at this time.
It is light, but not light enough to be dropped and forgetting at a small backpacker to be used all the time. It is easy to use but you have to take care with the possibility of the water (not filtered) drain from the top of the cup and wet your jacket or pant.
I did a test with bad water, in a small river near my house. I dont have the test of the non filtered water to be used as a control but I can claim that is not potable at all.
The result is good but the filter let drain a great amount of heterotrofic bacterias (result 1600 UFC/ml, the value accepted is less than 500 UFC/ml) . Those bacterias are not healthy, but the device filtered all fecal coliforms and Escherichia Coli Faecal.
I know the purpose of this device is not to be used with polluted water but I think that it could be a good illustration test. Using a very bad water in that test, I could see that the water was filtered and be turned clean, but not completely healthy water, that could be used at situations of emergency.
Now, I take it with me every time that I travel with my family and I save a lot of money, that i usualy use in water botles.

The Fizik show is very well made and looks great. I will compare it with the SIDI Drago because I have the boths and they have similar price! The Fizik is more roomy and confortable, but is a litle bit heavier. They have good rigidity and good Power transfer. The fabric of the SIDI is better to be used in a very hot days and when you are sure that your shoe will be wet , because the SIDIs fabric doesnt retain much humidity as the Fizik. I think that the SIDI is more race oriented, and the Fizik is more confortable.

Its very confortable, with excelent pad. As other italian brands, run small. The fit is a litle bit smaler then castellis bibs and near one size smaler them assos bibs. If you usualy use Louis Garneau think in buy one or two size up than that you usually buy. The fabric is very good and looks great. I bought Large, and it been a litle bit narrow. I think it was a litle bit disconfort when I put it, but, when I was ridding a bike, its been allsome. I bought Large.

Average

Its not the warmest neither the lightest, but its warm and confortable and its not heavy. Its true to the fit and It looks Good! The fabric is very thin and leaks small amount of pertex . Its a good vest, but I think its not the best to be used in rought places.

Very good quality
5 5

Its tought enough to be used in The trails, and stylish enough to be used in the city! The G1000 is strong and Water proof if Waxed. Have an elastic cargo capacity and very confortable when loaded. I didnt understand what is the purpose of a strap that conect The belt to the bag, I think that it increase The stability! Its very Good to be used when riding a bike.
