Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Size Purchased: Large

I have the Thermoflex knee warmers and got these to match. I haven't ridden them in temps below 50 degrees yet, but they seem plenty warm and are comfortable. No falling down at all. I've got long skinny arms, and they're pretty snug and long. I pull them up to my armpits and still go down over my wrists. It works for me, but caution if you've got big or thick arms.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 175 lbs

Bought these for 3 reasons:
1. No frame to obstruct my vision
2. Fit on top of my Overtake helmet
3. Price (on sale)
I'm very happy on all 3 counts. Changing the lenses is easier than other glasses I've owned. Comes with a nice case to hold the glasses and spare lenses. My only knock is I noticed a small scratch already, and I'm pretty careful with them. I recommend them.

I bought these because I like Castelli clothes, and the Progetto X2 chamois pad in my Sorpasso tights worked well for me. The one knock I have is the leg grippers don't seem to work as well on my knee warmers (also Castelli) vs bare leg. So they seem to right up a bit and get out of place. A little annoying but not a deal breaker. Sizing seems typical to Castelli.

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

I own a few Castelli pieces and I've been happy with them all. The fabric has a nice feel to it, and I like the raw-cut arm bands. Castelli stuff does fit snug, so you need to figure out if it works for you. I got this jersey in the same large I always get and it fits great. Some of the reviews mentioned the high pockets, but I think that makes them a little deeper than other jerserys, which helps my big phone fit in it.
The one thing I wish it had was a small zipper pocket, but other than that, it's great. Especially considering the price.

EDIT: Dropped it to 3 stars due to durability issues. After a few months of occasional wearing/washing it's developed pilling, and threads are pulling out. A little disappointing that it didn't last a whole season.

Size Purchased: XL

I'm a fan of Castelli gear, so I bought these to get me through early/late winter rides. I've used them down to about 40 degrees and they've been plenty warm enough, especially once you get moving. The Progetto pad is awesome. I'm used to Castelli shorts with the Kiss pad, and this is a nice step up. Some of the reviews mention the wind cutting through them, and I have noticed that a little bit. So I'll knock off a star for that.

Fit is typical Castelli - tight and racy. The XL fits the same as other XL Castelli shorts I have.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: S/M

Comfy, covers my ears, and easily fits under my helmet. I've worn it in temperatures from 53 F down to 40 F and my head hasn't been cold at all. I haven't tried it any lower than that, but I would think it's good down to around freezing.

Only complaint is I wish it came in more sizes. I went with the S/M which works, but is a bit snug. A true M would be perfect.
