"Really didnt want to "vandalise" my road bike by putting a rear mudguard on but last winter went through 4 rear lights that all died due to water damage from spray. Reluctantly bought this item but credit were credits due, its light, super easy and quick to put on and remove and does the job. Doesnt look too bad but roll on spring!"
Pros: Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit

"Bought size L despite I am normally a size M when buying normal clothes. The fit is good, especially in the arms but could do with the back being a little lower.
Have owned the jaket for a month now and used it numerous times in heavy rain and have to say it did the trick!
Folds up well into the small bag that comes with it.
Happily recomend"

"no faults with front light.
rear light lasted 3 winter months of 30 miles commuting every working day. Can see water inside the "sealed" unit and the batteries and connectors have all corroded due to water breaching the unit.
I do ride without a rear mud guard and the unit has been subjected to some wet conditions but expected it to last onger than this.
The fitting to the bike for the rear lights comes loose very easily as well despite being tigtened up quite stongly pre-ride
Will try another brand."
Cons: Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit
