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

Had to buy these in Wide. Tried the wire push but way too tight. This was the best option I could find from Sidi that came in wide. Wish they made the top tier shoes in wides. Why not Sidi?? Anyways, these things are still great. Had an old pair from back when SPD was the only option and they took a beating. These will last, like the heel adjustment and toe vent option. Newer wire dials are awesome for fit. Ordered a half size up from my normal and perfect. I run just below actually needing wides normally so these gave me plenty of room to put a Sole thin orthotic insert. Been riding an older version of the Fizik R3 Uomo which I also find very comfortable, good toe box. These Sidi have better power transfer and feel better on longer rides though. Like that the parts are replaceable too. As long as they do not improve our pedals again for awhile I should be good to go for the foreseeable future with these.

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

Wide and snug but not ear achingly tight. Wind blocking but not too warm. One of my new favorite headbands for cycling and XC skiing. Should have bought 2 but now out of black! I have owned a bunch of different headbands. This ranks up there with a couple of the old Pearl Izumi models which they changed and now are only okay, so sad. Recommend this one if you can get it before they sell out!

I have a hand full of older pearl izumi headbands but wanted to try a different brand with a wider profile. Bought this and a Gore headband. This one is more of a fabric weave feel to it which initially felt nice but it catches easier on helmet interior. This makes it a pain to get sitting right In the helmet compared to izumi and gore products. It also is saggy around the ears so looks weird. Gore was perfect, wide, tight, wind blocking, but not too tight and generally a better fit. Would not order this again or recommend. Might just have to gift it to a broke cycling buddy...at least someone will get use out of it! I will never wear it again. Too bad but oh well.

Got one of these on sale. Next time on sale may buy another. Easy on and off. Easy to adjust and has stayed where I set it so far. Have it on a Kona precept. Nothing fancy but for the price excellent. If it breaks in a couple years or I crash it is no big loss. Also, No more stripe of mud up my back on a wet day!

Went from older Marvic open pro wheels to these on one road bike and have Plus CL on my cyclocross. I ride 10+ Thousand miles a year with commuting and long weekend tours. Very nice ride on these wheels, roll is great and very happy with being able to run lower psi but still go fast. I live in Duluth, MN which is built on a big bluff and can say these are also better on hills. Working noticeably less to climb. I have an older pair of Ardennes plus CL wheels I use for cyclocross which are also great. The SL is so much lighter though. Very noticeable wt difference compared to CL. The CLs are much more bomb proof so have there uses. I have 3 older Lemond bikes and about to rebuild one next winter. I plan to ride them for many more years to come. Bought a second pair of this wheelset I like them so much. Disc brakes are taking over top end wheels and afraid in a few years it may become hard to find new clincher rim brake sets with this level of performance. Highly recommended.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 160 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I live along Lake Superior so need warmer clothing more often than not. This has become one of my favorite tops. I normally wear a medium but bought a large. I wanted extra room for layering. The medium fit perfect on my frame but snug. I am 5'8" 160 lbs. I have used in 35-50 degrees with 10-15 mph wind on 4-5 hour rides a few times with a single mid layer under and worked great for keeping me warm but not over heated. Upper 40s started to get warm with layer under. Used as only layer up to mid 50s and worked well. Might get too warm for me over that, but I have a fair cold tolerance due to where I live so keep that in mind. Fabric is very comfortable, good stretch, long in the hip and arms for coverage, slight wind resistance but breaths well, not wind proof though, neck sits high for protection, and nice reflective elements. Highly recommend. For winder below 40 days I have another windproof jacket that is better suited and decided to use then but this jacket has become my go to otherwise. Bought a second one I like it so much. Getting rid of most of my race fit thermals as I do more long touring. This jacket gives much better coverage and much more versatility.
