"I have been using a 22L Inov-8 pack, but needed to move up to something larger. I commute by running, and this bag is easily large enough to accommodate a wash kit, towel, suit, shirt, shoes, breakfast and lunch, plus A4 document holders. All this, with plenty of room to spare.
I've only had the chance to use the bag a couple of times, but found it to be light, comfortable and adjustable on the run. Bottle holding pockets were fine to reach, and the waist-strap pockets are a good size."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Adjustable, Lightweight

"Even given Inov-8's tendancy to allow space for your foot to breathe, these are a little too spacious. I would say size down if in doubt, but that doesn't stop them from being comfy."
Pros: Rugged, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons: Expensive

Run Performance has little energy boosters for your feet. All anatomically vulnerable zones are padded, reducing the chances of blisters and pressure sores, even during long periods or intense activity.

"These socks are comfortable enough, but I am a little disappointed with them.
FIrst, I can't understand the point of the orange fabric tab on the achilles. It is described as an 'achilles tendon protector', but looks like a ridiculous duck's bill, and strikes me as being just as useful.
Secondly they seem to be a bit too long, despite the array of sizes available. The result is you end up with the heel pad half way up the back, rather than underneath.
I know a lot of people like these socks, so maybe it's just me, but I prefer my Thorlo's."
Cons: Expensive, Poor Fit

"I have these, and the more expensive 2XU comp shorts. The Orca's are a less generous cut, but fit very comfortably.
I've not swam in them, so I can't comment on that, but for longer runs (20k +) the Orca's win every time. No rubbing, the padding is un-obtrusive and they feel comfortable from start to finish."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit

"It weighs next to nothing, goes on your head, covers your ears, keeps you warm, costs far less than many of the alternatives...what else can I say?
I don't like the big label inside, but this is more of an OCD thing about unnecessarily large labels. You certainly don't feel the label when wearing it."
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit

Analysis, inspiration and innovation are the key words behind the development of the Tao, the Tacx superlight streamlined bottle cage. The shape of the bike and its technical components inspired the designers.

Do these shorts have an adjustable drawstring waist

They do indeed have a drawstring, which tucks comfortably inside

What about mounting screws?

Are they included in the package too, or do I need to buy it separately?
