I am one of those individuals that sweats profusly when I ride. This presents the problem of wet and cold. This jersey when worn along with a Patagonia silk weight undershirt has proven to be the best combination of warmth and staying relatively dry that I have found. As long as I continue to ride I remain warm. I don't want to stop for long or the wet will turn me cold. Other combinations I have tried have gotten me wet and cold or just cold and unable to warm up at all. As for the sizing of the garment, it runs small, but every bike kit I have ever seen also seems to run small. It seems well made and the zipper works very well. I have routinely used this jersey in the low 30's and have remained as comfortable as those temperatures will allow when on a bike. Get one. You will be happy with it.
This is my second pair of Omloop bib shorts. At 6'1 I enjoy the coverage provided by the longer leg. I often reach for these instead of my knickers and they never fail to do the job, particularly down to about 55 degrees. Below, that I match them with knee warmers and I'm good down to about 40-45 degrees. Great product!
Ok, i got this and the shower pass and the Castelli Squadra. Orderd 2 sizes of the squadra but too tight under the arm pits. XL and 2XL. Cheap price but wasnt happening. (WBW, bless their souls, charged me twice for the return! Remains unresolved)
Shower Pass beats both hands down in quality, fabric and overall design and is cheaper than the SupreLeggera. So why did I choose this? Good question. The only reason i never took the shower pass is that there was excessive fabric around the waist (see my review on the Shwr Pss) The Super Leggera gets 5 stars for fabric weight and packability. Hence Super Leggera! Which it most certainly is. It looses 4 stars for build quality. For example, the cuffs are 1mm neoprene, stretchy, great, no probs there. But, where they join to the sleeve seam, there is no stretch. So very difficult to get on and off whilst riding. Looses major points for this alone! Have to be able to remove whislt cycling in a group.
There is a design feature w Castelli that they offset the one side of the zip when fully zipped to your neck. So one side is about 10mm highr than the other. Very annoying. Better if zip was offset left or right. In the end, I took this over the Shower Pass but to be honest, i am not impressed by it. Also, more $ than the Shower Pass surprisingly.
Orderd XL. Fits average. Flaps a bit on the shoulders over 30kmhr. Waist and arms are good length and fit. I usually order med in Craft, which Is my preferred cycling brand.
I am 5.92ft (511')long arms, 162, 39 chst, 32 wst. I would be interested in looking a the Craft featherlight or something similar.
I purchased these gloves and have used them on 30-40 degree temperature rides in central Kentucky. They were warm but unfortunately my hands get very sweaty in them. As such I have switched to a more breathable pair of gloves. Durability has been excellent thus far.
