Edinburgh GB
Usual overall good quality fit that you would expect from Castelli. The pad is their Kiss Air pad so from previous experience I expect lots of comfortable miles in the saddle. I was a little concerned that the lack of leg grips would mean that they would creep up my legs as I ride. Absolutely no problems at all though, they stay where they're put.
The black/turbulance colour way that I chose is a nice change from black shorts or tights. Looks good and feels feminine without falling into 'shrink it and pink it' territory.
The one thing I don't like about these knickers is the waistline. It's just not as substantial as my other Castelli knickers. This means that there's a little bit of movement at the front as you ride. It's not a huge issue but I did notice it and it means I'll likely use these for commuting rather than longer rides.
