Purchased the Large IAW manufacture sizing chart. Large had a very generous fit in the waist and waist gripper, fit more like a XL or XXL & waist gripper was too big to stay in place. I have two other Endura jerseys and a jacket which all are smaller vs this shirt (If B.T.D. would allow photos I'll upload shirt over shirt comparison.)
What I liked: front chest pocket for cash or ID. Three traditional rear pockets plus a zipper security pocket (again for ID or money). Color was true to description.
These pants are great. I ride year round in New England in all types of weather. I've now worn them in torrential downpours & wet snow storms & my lower half stays completely dry. I like the velcroed bottoms. They're designed to tighten up & narrow the sleeve bottom so that the pant bottoms don't interfere with the pedals or drivetrain. They are easy to don or doff without having to take you shoes off. They are comfortable & do not hinder my pedaling motion.
I bought this jersey principally for wearing as a thermal layer for mountain biking, since many other jerseys on the market are really geared more towards road bike riding and the aggressive posture of that style of riding, where the manufacturers' designs mean the fronts are cut short and rise up too much when using for mountain biking.
These shirts are a notable improvement over road bike style ones, with enough length to stay in place in the front for mountain bike use. the gripper hems keep them in place in the back pretty well too, which is great. Weight is great for sub-40 degree riding, down into the teens with a winter riding jacket outer layer. The fabric wicks sweat well and overall fit is trim, but not super tight, which is great for mountain biking.
Can't yet speak to long-term durability, but quality seems high and likely to last as other Endura clothing has for me in the past.
Wow. After seasons and seasons of shoe covers ripping or pulling up over my toes after hike-a-bike situations, I finally found a pair that truly do what they're advertised to do â€” keep my feet dry and warm. One word of caution would be to size up because the rubber toe makes it difficult to pull the cover fully over the shoe. The zipper also can be difficult to fully close if the covers are too small. I wear a size 46 in Shimano, and I had to get the XL size. They fit perfectly.
