"Have used these footbeds for over 4 years. Last well and made a real difference in conjunction with a switch to northwave shoes to my comfort levels. Stopped all previous 'hot spot' issues. Supportive without being overly corrective and don't take up too much space in lace of regular insole. Have tried various aftermarket insoles and these have been the best for me. However foot stuff is fairly person specific so might not be the solution for everyone."
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

"Tight fitting but comfortable and look like they'll last well. Big long term fan of this make as I wear them for work. Not blister free but as close as I've ever got. Not a long sock so not ideal for military boots but fine for ankle height walking boots. Excellent for trail running/cycling and cosy enough on cold days."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Rugged
Cons: Limited Color Choices

"Have been using this during the cold snap and have found it plenty warm enough on its own, once you get going. The LED is handy for unlit roads but the colour is great for making motorists aware you're there. The top is breathable and the zip long enough to vent on warmer days. Great top for winter training and proved comfy at night when the heating broke recently! Fit is close without being tight and certainly not flappy around the hem. I'm a 42-44 and the large was perfect with good length arms (my normal bugbear)."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

"I'm not so keen on the big framed Oakleys and never seem to be able to get the nose bridge to fit. This is my second pair of Rudy Projects and they're great. The Rydons I had before were more bike specific but you can get away with these off the bike without feeling as silly. I've swapped the multi laser lenses for the photochromic clear which are great for the UK's changeable conditions and easy to swap and change. They're highly adjustable and feel solid without feeling heavy. Nose pads are more robust than my Rydons (lost a few sets on sweaty days) and as they're one piece less likely to come off. Very pleased."
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Good Fit, Lightweight
Cons: ability to make up own combo of lens and frame

Sizing

I am keen on getting a highly visible running top and this looks ideal. I vary between a L and an XL depending on companies. Arm length is often an issue - 6'2" with a 42" chest. Does this item come up big or small and if small any chance of stocking the XL visipro in the future?

Bottle scratching?

One reviewer mentioned that these cages scratch up your bottles. I would like to know if anyone else has had a similar experience, or have found them okay?
Not experienced that myself. Very happy with mine.

Which lens colour should I have?

I am looking to buy a pair of these goggles but are not sure which ones would suit which conditions. I.e blue lens for pool e.t.c. Could you please explain?
Blue lens works fine for me in pool and outdoors. Mirrored too bling for me. I'd go on personal aesthetics rather than worrying about optimal tint. Not a massive issue with goggles and on a bright sunny day I've never found a pair of goggles that cut out all the glare anyway.
