The tyre will suit XC riders in their marathon races or weekend trail epics whilst the 2.4 model will also appeal more extreme riders on longer travel machines.

"This is a large tyre with plenty of grip in all conditions. The side nodules are excellent when mud plugging as you can still keep going whilst in the deepest of mud. Caution you don't want to be behind a bike with these on as they kick up mud like a two year old. As my partner found out. On dry tracks they are failry noisey due to the hard raised nodules, but this is a good trade off. Only done 200km so far so not sure on how long they will last."
Pros: Great Value, High Quality, Rugged, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: noisey on road

"Keeps out raim, mist and drizzel with ease. Has some windproof ability but not too good when cycling along exposed routes. Easy to clean with just a damp cloth, which is good when cycling along minor muddy back roads and MTB trails. Not enough pockets for storing food/drinks etc."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Not Enough Features, Limited Color Choices

2.5 layer waterproof jacket, with Teflon coating, and fully taped seams. ‘Medium-fitted’ cut designed to be ridden in cold wet winter conditions.
 

Does this pack down to fit in a jersey pocket

No! Too bulky for a std jersey pocket. Maybe ok if you have a large pocket across your lower back.

Is this jacket fully windproof?

I know some waterproof jackets are not necessarily windproof, which is something i need.
Not a wind stopper but should suffice providing adequate base layer worn underneath. And not along exposed routes.

How tight are the cuffs?

I like to be able to pull up my sleeves when I start to get hot, so I wanted to know whether or not the sleeves are elastics or adjustable and how tight they are or the length or width of the cuffs.
Velco fasteners allow you to reposition, sleve as required.
