Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Size I

As an older experienced cold weather rider here in New England, I use a number of really well made high end layering pieces. I'd rate this baselayer as one of my favorites. I have other excellent baselayer pieces from Rapha, Castelli and Giordana, but lately I've been grabbing this one for my early winter rides. I routinely wear just this with one of my nice winter riding jackets and I'm comfortable down into the low 30's. This piece does it's job, wicking away body heat and moisture so that you're not feeling clammy and cold on those cold windy winter days. I would absolutely buy this piece again. I prefer my cycling gear to have a little 'give' to it without feeling like a stuffed sausage.. So even though I'm a short 5'5" tall and 145 with a full 38/39 inch chest, I prefer to size up in Assos Gear. I bought the Size I in this piece and it fits me perfectly. As others have stated, when you pull it out of the package, be prepared because it looks like it is sized for your 10 year old. But the material has an amazing elasticity to it and it conforms nicely to your body without feeling overly snug or constricting.

These are snug fitting without being restrictive, which I love for a foul weather glove. The 'stretch' in the material makes your hands fully functional when on so you can easily shift and grab your phone, etc. These are perfect for those shoulder season rides here in New England when the temps drop into the 40's & 50's. I've also worn them without any problem down into the high 30's. I run a bit hot but my hands were fine even in the high 30's. The grip and finger function with these gloves is outstanding. My only complaint, isn't a complaint..but because they're really form fitted, they do need a bit of work to get off. All in all a great purchase and I'd buy again without a second thought.

I've owned a number of high end cycling jackets. I find Gore products to be durable, rugged and built to handle a range of weather challenges. This jacket has been one of my favorite pieces over the past two years. I ordered mine a size larger than I normally wear so that I had room to layer underneath and it's worked perfectly. Using a variety of underlayers this jacket works from mid 30's to 60 degrees. You can zip off the arms when the temps climb which is a nice feature. It's a great shoulder season piece minus the arms. I'd buy this jacket again in a heartbeat. Great value.
