"I have a pair of dhb Aeron Pro bib shorts that I'm very happy with, so I thought I'd buy a pair of these in the same size, for cold commutes. Once I tried them on, I discovered that they're a much bigger fit than the Aerons, so went a size smaller. The material looks and feels cheaper than the Aerons too. But the main problems I have with these shorts came clear once I'd cycled in them. The pad at the front is virtually none existent, so you're left with no support. I keep having to 'rearrange' myself as not to look obscene. Also, the front of the bib is so high that you have to pull the straps down to urinate. Not good unless you like stripping off to the waist in public. The elastic on the leg is quite loose too... and I've got massive calves. I guess you get what you pay for."
Cons: Poor Fit

dhb Windslam Roubaix Long Sleeve Jersey
The Windslam Roubaix Jersey offers effective windchill defence, added warmth and all the features you need whilst out on your bike, making it the perfect layer for those cold Autumn/Winter road rides.
"I bought this thinking it would be just like a jersey but with windproofing, but when I unpacked it, I was surprised to see that it was the same thickness as a soft shell! Riding it in early spring gets you very hot, very quickly.
Also the white bits on the neck and shoulders stick out more that they do on the picture, giving it the look of something worn on Star Trek.
The fit is good, if a little tight around the waist and short at the back.
Nevertheless, I kept it for cold winter wear which I'm sure it will be very good for."
A baggy performance short for trail and cross country riding or for those commuters who just want an alternative to lycra cycling shorts, the Dyno short is perfect for both tearing through the woods and/or daily commutes through the city streets.
"Where as the padded liner fits perfectly, the material these shorts are made from is extremely stretchy. Before you know it, the waistband will be heading downwards (and my butt is fare from being skinny. You can tighten the waistband slightly with the velcro tabs but they just attach themselves to your jersey, which leaves pull marks. A complete waste of money... and I bought them in the sale."
"A good, speedy replacement for the standard Panracer tyre you get on an Airnimal Joey Sport. Being so narrow, they're not so good on the corners in the wet (as I recently discovered). I'm going to replace them with a wider and grippier tyre for the winter."
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

howies Dyfi Light Weight Shell Jacket
A great value, lightweight jacket with a breathable polyester fabric construction. Featuring four way stretch arm panels for increased comfort on the move and a shower resistant coating to protect you in uncertain weather conditions.
"My previous saddle pack had a velcro seatpost strap that roughed-up my cycling shorts as my legs brushed against it as I pedalled, so I bought this one to cure that problem. Its size means that you really have to cut down on what you carry but that's probably a good thing if your climbing or out to get your KOMs. There are elastic straps inside that hold everything in place when opened. I could fit in one spare tube (i also keep one in my pocket), a small, flat multitool, two small tyre levers, my door key, credit card, some cash and some instant patches. The quick-release is handy when you're busy buying your post ride cuppa. The only sticking points are water resistance (which I'm yet to test) and the zip tag that sometimes pokes my inside thigh when I'm riding in wind."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight

Corefit Long Sleeve Zip Neck Base Layer AW11
Unbeatable, synthetic base layer engineered with moisture wicking and antibacterial properties.
"The fit on this base layer is excellent. It feels good when on - tight in all the right places, fitted on the arms but not too tight around the waist (for all of us without six-packs). Because The fabric uses charcoal, I can wear it for a four hour ride without it smelling. When I get home, I just air it out and it smells as good as clean for the next ride. It's better than my HH base layer any day!"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
