I have several long sleeve cycling jerseys and these are my favorites! They would be considered lightly insulated but as with anything, that depends on what base layer you want to wear under it. The reason(s) behind my preferring the Fiandre is that the fit is excellent, it is form fitting but not suffocating and very stretchy. I also love the cuffs, they are thin making getting gloves on (a necessity for cold weather) a breeze. Although the jerseys are kind of simple in style the little red accent works really well making a simple design look great IMO! Pockets are really stretchy to help with storage when pulling off layers when it starts to warm up. Love them, I have three different colors!
I needed a light weight, packable jacket and this one fits the description perfectly. Because of the extreme and unpredictable changes in weather and temperature where I live, this jacket is the item of clothing that I use the most from October to April. That's more than half of the year. Granted: it doesn't protect me in torrential rain, but I use it most of the time rather as a wind breaker, light enough that doesn't make me feel hot in the steepest climbs and warm enough when it's time to go downhill. Definitely a game changer. That said, I have to disclose that I bought it when it was on sale (I saved about $36) and that's why I gave it 5 stars in the value rating. However, I don't know if I would have bought it at full price (almost $90!).
These things are warm and keep the wind out well. The fit was great and the chamois is decent. Haven't had any issues riding in sub 40 degree weather. Only issue I have is that the crotch area could use some more insulating but wearing a base layer down there helps out a lot.
This glove is great for it's intended purpose - cool weather riding. It keeps the hands comfortable and breathes really well. That breathability means that it doesn't hold in a lot of heat, so don't expect to wear this glove below about 40F unless your hands run really warm. The latex strips on the palm are very tacky and provide good grip on the bars. They are thin, so you still have good dexterity for shifting, pushing the buttons on your bike computer, etc.
