"Fit well inside the shoes I use and give an additional cushioning element. Quite a bit deeper than most standard insoles. They last well and I have used them in several pairs of shoes before eventually they wear out."
Pros: Good Fit

"Larger than normal pump bit still fits on the frame. Gets right up to 100 psi quickly although the last few pumps are hard work. Has worked out very well for me touring. Recommended."

"Good quality item. Bought it because the other types of front basket sat above the level of the bars on my road bike and obstructed the lights. This sits lower so does not cause that problem. Fitting was a bit fiddly to get right and had to lenghen one cable so it snaked around the basket but all in all a very nice product that has been useful on several long rides already. Also does not look that out of place on a touring road bike, fitting between the drop bars nicely."
Pros: Rugged, High Quality

"Worked OK for a few months but now battery connections don't work very well. Sometimes the light goes off on and you need to fiddle around with the bulb unit (which undoes to change batteries) to get it to come on again"
Cons: Poor Quality

"This light is really good if you want to be seen provided you ensure it is pointing straight back as the beam is fairly focussed. Too many flashing options to decide what to have it set on !! I found the original batteries did not last that long and am trying some better quality ones now but I guess that is the price you pay for the brightness. Fits the normal Cateye back light bracket which makes it easy to take off when parked up."
Pros: High Quality

"Good little pump. Takes quite a lot of time to pump up to high pressure but that is the trade off for a small size pump. Last time I had a puncture I checked the pressure when I got home and had achieved 80 psi which is pretty good. Frame bracket makes it easy to carry."
Pros: High Quality, Lightweight

Will this pump fit in the back of a jersey?

I would say it is just a bit too long for that. I am sure you could fit in in the pocket but a bit too much sticking out the too for it to secure in my opinion. Has a frame fitting though which works well snug on the downtube by your bottle cage
