This is a great jacket for keeping off the rain/snow! I normally wear a medium and this one fits great, love the form fitting cut but I have still had adequate room to wear a long sleeve base layer and l/s jersey under this when the weather was below freezing and that was more than necessary to keep warm as long as I was working. My only complaint so far with this jacket is that the zipper is very difficult to get seated when starting to zip it up. Not sure if it is just my jacket, I have a feeling it is because of the stiff waterproofing measures around the zippers, I am a little worried about the time I have to try to put this on/ take it off while still on the bike moving.
Not easy to update this review but had too... After several various weather/temp uses I have to say I end up wetter inside this jacket than out most days. Zipper down and vents open on a high 40's low 50's day and I am uncomfortably clammy, sorry iP I love most of your stuff and loved the fit and fashion, but this jacket was for the function!
S/M fits a surprisingly large bag. I bought this to cover my North Face Miwok back pack for my bike commute to work. So far it has been great, it fits nicely over the whole pack and seems to keep out the rain and the mud that sprays up from the rear wheel. It rinses nicely too when it is time to shed the muck. Easy elastic, Velcro strap keeps it in place up top and a nice cinch cord around the base, which I haven't really need to use since it fits perfect as is!
surprisingly these are still warm even when wet! Maybe not comfortably warm but better than other options... I wear these all the time now and seem pretty durable, breathable, and not prohibitively padded. The grippers are a nice touch. The fingers are very long on these and occasionally get in the way, maybe the gloves would be better one size smaller, but excess space is also where the warmth is.
Aside from having to cut a slit in your brand new covers to expose your cleats the first time you use them these shoe covers are easy to use and are great for those chill but dry days early in spring or late fall. Easy to slip on, these covers help keep your feet warm but still let them breath a bit better than full softshell covers.
I road ride long distances regularly and commute by bike most days to work. The weather has been teens and twenties and snowing most of the winter but I still prefer the versatility of bib shorts rather than full tights. These are great! I wear them with leg warmers and they have done a great job keeping keeping me relatively warm and comfortable. They fit pretty tight all around, especially the leg grippers so can be a little more difficult to get into but hold firm and stay in place nicely once they are on. I bought two pair now this winter I love them so much and I am sure they will continue to be useful as the weather begins to warm!
I tried a few different gloves and combinations of gloves early in the season and thought maybe you just had to get used to having frozen fingers. That is not the case once I finally got these! I bought my normal glove size, large, and they are a little big but not too floppy and extra space is necessary for insulation, plus it allows enough space for another base glove if the weather ever got crazy cold! I have worn these solo in low teens and twenties and my fingers may not have been toasty the whole time but they definitely were not uncomfortable. They are warm without thick insulation so i still have good grip and road feel. The inner fleece not these things is ridiculously soft too!
I have worn these now through one very snowy, mucky season now and I have to say I love these covers! They have kept my feet relatively warm and very dry. They are very easy on and off. I have zipper covers and these with Velcro and I will say they both have their advantages but the Velcro on these holds securely and a good amount for adjustment. There has been no interference with the cleats. The material on the base seems durable so far for the little walking around you have to do off the bike.
