"Got this in yellow and looks fantastic. Impressive high viz look without construction worker fit!
Very breathable and performs superb in a shower. Lovely soft feel and does not give you that boil in the bag feeling IMHO I have a castelli jacket, twice the price and not a patch on this and they very similar jackets.
I have used this jacket with a DHB base layer, nice campy thermal layer and this jacket over the top and Ive been really comfy from 0 to 10 degrees which has impressed me.
Very light weight and easy to stow in rear pocket.
Downside, very easy to catch and does not wear especially well but at this price, quality and performance I can live with its longevity."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Wears Out Easily

"Got these in fluro yellow and they look fantastic.
Size large perfect fit over size 44 northwave shoes.
Warm down to 1c and more than comfy at over 10c, very shower proof but not entirely waterproof in heavy rain.
Very well constructed and feel like they should last a long time which I have to be honest was unexpected at this price.
Overall far better quality, visibility, flexibility and value for money than expected.
By the way the colour match is the same as the DHB wisp jacket, when worn together a proper LOOK AT ME match!"

"i wanted a smaller top quality bottle for my 10/15 mile commutes and the odd crit, I didn't want to carry around a half filled 750ml bottle all the time and loved the look of this bottle.
Love the fact the lid is fixed and cannot be lost!"

"Material is very thin and provides little warmth. They appear to fit quite well to begin but once you are on the bike they bunch up ride up and look terrible. These offer nothing that a pair of leg warmers cant offer you and if you wanted something that can take off the chill of the british summer!!!! then look elsewhere.
I wanted an unpadded so I can wear any bib shorts underneath and somthing with some warmth and bought a pair of Lusso repel bottoms for much the same money and they are far better in every way."

"This is a very nice base layer. It feels great against the skin and wickes away the moisture as well as any base layer I have owned of similar quality. i bought the top with the grey sleeves and it looks great too.
In conclusion very good value for money, looks great.
I'm 6ft and about 77kg's and the large is a perfect fit.

"Superb materials feels very comfy, not had it that long so cant comment on durability.
Zipped pocket on the rear I gor mine in black and it looks wicked! The arms are quite short, I'm 6ft about 77 kgs and the large is a great fit, quite a race fit with it. The blacks for the body and arms are a different shade because of the materials used and it looks a little odd at first but it grows!"

"I have found this not to be great at all, the chains are still very noisy after using it. I've had some success with using it almost as a base coat then running some wet lube over the top which seems a bit of a waste of time-maybe I'm not using it right but I wont buy it again!"

Yes I wear them with a pair of northwave MTB shoes, I had to unscrew the front studs as they would have punctured through the front of the covers eventually.

Covers fit over MTB shoes really well. But make sure you go for a snug fit.

Named after a bright red planet visible from afar, the Mars 3.0 rear light has seven super-bright red LEDs inside a sleek water-resistant case, and has a no-quibble lifetime warranty.
 

Is this weatherproof?

I was just wondering how if anyone had any idea's of how it handled the wet?

The perfect compliment to a Fizik or Selle Royal saddles featuring the new ICS integral clip in system. The bag features reflective detailing and an LED light loop for added safety.
 

Does this bag have enough room for an inner tube and tyre levers? and maybe a co2 pump too?.
