2pm pouring with rain 10 degrees . dry and warm rain bouncing off gabba.
It coped with it all. A fantastic jersey."

"bought these to replace a pair of craft overshoes that fell apart in one season. In comparison these are much better quality and fit.
i am size 10 sidi shoes and the L/XL are perfect fitting.
A little difficult to get on first couple of times as there is no velcro bottom.once mastered it is easy and means a closer fi.
has kept feet dry and warm in most conditions down to about 4degrees C."
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Good Fit

"having worn for 400 miles now these shoes are very good. stiff sole and excellent closing system.
however they have one of the worst insoles i have ever had in a premium sport shoe. it is little more than a piece of cardboard with a thin fabric cover.does not give any support to the foot. i have replaced it already.
if you buy thes get the race insole as well.
easy to clean and attractive.
"
Pros: Attractive, Adjustable, Good Fit
Cons: very poor insole

"these shorts look great and the performance in hot weather is very good. However i am disappointed with the seat pad. it lacks padding that my Scott and Gore shorts provide.it also has started to cause chaffing as the covering material is quite abrasive. it may be the pad is just not right for me."
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight
Cons: poor padding on seat pad

Sizing question..

hey, im 6ft 1" but a 33 waist.. if i go by my waist size i would be a med but if i go by my height i'd be a large.. whats the best option?
I am 6ft and have a 35 waist. i have the large and they fit very well . i would think a med would be a little small in the length of bib .
