"side pocket great for cash/ credit card and main pouch holds 6/8 gels plus 3/4 bars - REALLY helps on long distance events where you need quick/ easy access to fuel. zipper works well, no hassle and so far pretty weather repellent… if you need to fuel on the fly, buy this."

"As with all Castelli gear it's brilliantly designed and well made to be practical and look brilliant. This top is particularly warm for winter rides and has been well-balanced for 3 season weather… if you like riding and can stretch a few extra quid, this top is well worth it."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality

"5 foot 10 and 80kg and medium fits great (vvv small wrinkle behind knee but that's just me being fussy) - REALLY warm and wind proofing works great. Cant fault them so far - great purchase. (no pockets anywhere - maybe a rear pocket could be further benefit?)"

 Castelli Confronto Waterproof Jacket
Castelli Confronto Waterproof Jacket
With the higher waterproof protection of hard shell and comfortable fit of soft shell, this jacket is the best of both worlds, making it ideal for all wet conditions. A waterproof zipper, high collar and external seam all contribute to keeping water out.

"fits great, looks the part and feels really high quality
after 6 months use and 3/4 long days out for 4/5++ hours in the rain was dry as you like
vents are good so didn't sweat overly
def worth the investment - pricey, but worth it

"Fits great between Profile T4 aero bars ... Elastic bands look bit 'cheap' but work perfectly fine. Able to cut straw to size is a plus too... overall, a great product to save time/ effort when rehydrating (but quite expensive for what really is a 'pointy-shaped' water bottle... still, glad I bought one if it saves me time/ energy on IM!)"
Pros: Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

Can you explain the sizing of the below product?

Castelli Diluvio Winter Cycling Gloves - what size hand would fit a small/medium or large/extra large glove? Could do with a bit more info to help me purchase.

Thank You
I used the sizing guide from the Wiggle site and worked perfect… the L/ XL are fine for me, 'normal' sized bloke of 5foot 10
