" These gloves do exactly what they are designed to do - block the windchill. However, as a road cyclist I found them uncomfortable as the gel inserts were poor and only on the outside of the palm. I have to wear a pair of summer gloves underneath them to prevent pins and needles in my hands.
They are beautifully made and I like the long tappered channel that goes up your wrists to keep out cold air. Also the attention to details like anti-slip material on the fingers you use for the brakes and gear levers. Shame about the get inserts other wise they would be first class gloves. "
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive, insufficient gel inserts

" Great socks, really soft and not at all itchy.I road out one really cold day and forgot my overshoes and after 15 miles I couldn't feel my feet, so you do need to put on overshoes to counter act the wind chill factor. However, I have been wearing them in boots for walking the dog and feeding the horses during this freezing weather. BRILLIANT. - And they wash really well. "

 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.
 

What is the size guide for these shorts?

I'm usually a size 8 - but I'm quite tall (175cm) - can you provide a more detailed size guide?

Cheers
The Assos sizing charts are very accurate, but if you are tall you may want to go up a size as I know some people find them short in length. Read the reviews on the item you want to buy because sometimes people say I am a size 8 and tall and they xxxxx whatever size was perfect. i find the reviews on Wiggles website brilliant.

what is the diffrent between S5 and S2(assos chamis)

The S5 is the latest in Chamois for ladies - it is blue and has what Assos call a waffle effect (more like bubble wrap in appearance) for improved breathability and easy drying. I bought a pair to do a London - Paris ride and found them great. I have the S2 (orange and very thick) in my winter Uma.LL. The later are much bulkier and don't mould to your anatomy so well. I think they only make the ladies shorts with the S5 now.

How/where is hand diameter measured?

Across the fingers. If you look on the Assos website it will show you very clearly how to measure for your gloove size.
