Purchased on sale I think these are a great deal. Can't speak to durability, as I've only got 3 rides & 3 washes on them. Love the silky smooth fabric. Great pad and the straps don't move, twist, or bunch. I honestly forget I'm wearing them while on the bike. I'm at the upper end of the med size range, but they fit me perfectly. I'm 5'-9" with 33" waist, 42" chest & weigh 165 pounds. I also tried the size large which would have been fine too, but ultimately I decided I prefer the tighter fit of the mediums. Liked them well enough I bought a second pair.
I like this jacket. It's well-designed, with good material. The fabric is breathable. In coolish weather it's a winner, but as the temp warms this jacket's total lack of ventilation becomes a problem. So it's a good jacket but it would be an excellent jacket if it had pit zips andor cape ventilation on the shoulders. I still gave it 4 stars, just wish I could have gave it 5.
Perfect for Calif rides in cooler seasons when need something for early start but want to stow away once hit the hills. Warmer and a bit bulkier than a light wind shell. Nice that has the two back pockets. My go to size is XL and this fit fine.
Was looking for a pair of winter riding gloves that would allow perspiration from my hands to escape through the glove membrane while riding. I live in North Florida. Winter riding is limited to temps above 35F. Description of these gloves and ratings from buyers indicated that they breathe well. On 2-3 hour rides in temps of 35-45F, my hands were soaked. Insulation from these temps was fine, but the goretex membrane did not move perspiration as advertised.
