" Bought this to use over winter. Been great so far on every ride. I have been dry and very toasty on those cold winter mornings.
I normally wear a medium top, this is loose fitting esp around the neck. If you want a tighter fir, go down a size.
Ordering another one as one under shirt is not enough.
"
Pros: Great Value, Lightweight
Cons: Limited Color Choices, neck a touch too high

" I love it. I have owned basic models and was considering this or the Garmin Edge. Glad I chose this. $200 cheaper and only the mapping missing, but apple phone app does that for $13. Missing the cadence meter but awaiting part from wiggle.
Easy to use, but lots numbers on the screen. Once you get used to where the numbers are, a great product.
I connected the whole product in about 20 minutes, including syncing my heart rate monitor. Very user friendly.

 Assos Women's H FI.Lady S5 Waist Shorts
Assos Women's H FI.Lady S5 Waist Shorts
ASSOS performance in a lady’s cut and style. ASSOS H FI.Lady_S5 shorts have a shaped waistband, which is flat at the front and elasticated at the back, for comfort and gentle support.
 

Assos vs Sugoi sizing

Sorry to ask yet another sizing question. I have been wearing small Sugoi shorts, great fit. Pearl mediums are too big. Does that still equate to a small Assos? I am right in the middle for hips on the size chart between small and medium, but a small on the height.
