This is my first cycling specific bag. I got it for a gift otherwise not sure I would have paid >$100 for a bag. I used it for the first time over the weekend and liked how the pockets are organized to keep all my stuff easy to access. I only wish the mesh pocket on the inside of main compartment flap was divided into 2 smaller sections instead of 1 big one. Outside of that I think it's a great product.

Fit: Runs small

Review title says it all but I'll elaborate. Superior water-proofing yet breathable. I pair these with the Gabba and can take on any weather conditions. Normally I size up with Castelli clothing but I wanted these to fit tight so went with the recommended size per the sizing chart. They fit like a second skin. Sadly, I only wore these a few times and crashed tearing a hole in one warmer :(

After many years of road riding these were the first MTB/Cross pedals I ever purchased heading into my first season of cyclocross racing. I researched several brands and models and decided to go with Shimano. I couldn't be more happy with these. Easy engagement, decently shedded mud/snow, and withstood a season of racing and looking good for the upcoming season.

picked up a set of these in the 27mm width in the early spring to use on my X bike during the summer months to ride on paved road, dirt, and occasional gravel. ran pressure from 75-85 psi and got excellent road feel, grip, and traction when needed. only 1 flat from a goathead last week. now that X season is almost here I'll take them off and use them again for the same purpose next year.

this is easily my favorite jersey for warm weather! I look forward to the day I get to wear it along with the Sportful BodyFit Pro bib shorts and have received numerous compliments on the kit. I do recommend hand washing the jersey with the zipper zipped up. the fabric easily snags. also would not recommend pinning a bib number on it. otherwise an outstanding jersey!

I was looking for a Castelli jersey < $100 not realizing that meant a looser fit. I ordered a medium, which I have done in the past with Castelli (even wear a size L in the Gabba!), and the waist grippers barely made contact. Aside from the fit it seems like a great jersey. Exchanged for a M in the Volo.

I bought this vest to serve as an extra layer over a jersey on cool or windy days for which it serves its purpose well. I haven't worn it in the rain but expect it would hold up fine. The high collar bothers me before I get on the bike but once out riding I don't seem to notice it. the white color gets dirty easily but that's to be expected.

worn it for a short ride and loved the fit from the moment I hit the saddle. The chamois is very comfortable but will be interesting to see how it performs on a 3-4 hour ride. 5'8", 30 in waist, 145# and sized up to L as I didn't care for the "strangulation" feeling from the M although there was obviously more compression with the smaller size.

I bought this last fall and it is easily my favorite jersey for riding in temps ranging from the mid-30's to mid-50's layering accordingly. Unlike most thermal jackets the Gabba is super comfy and repels water like no other. I originally purchased a medium (my normal size) however it was too snug. You might want to size up.

I bought this about a year ago for $10. I liked the compact size and how it stays nice and tight to the saddle. I didn't have a problem with the velcro or fabric wearing away but the zipper just crapped out on me and I'm betting I only opened and closed it a dozen times tops. So while it was inexpensive I was still hoping to get another 6 months to a year out of it :)
