Got the cream/charcoal jersey and it is loose and comfortable but the stand out feature is the aquamarine highlights on the collar and wrists. There is also very subtle threading with the same color on the pleats. Big thumbs up!
A real no nonsense jersey. The sublimated graphics on the back are cool! You can't see them in the picture of the white jersey but they are there.
Order a size up from your normal size, they run small. If you have the snap in liner you need to leave room for it and don't worry, the elastic in the waist and built in belt make it easy to make minute adjustments. Very well built and durable. I personally like the Hummvee shorts better, as they have a looser fit, but these are really good shorts. These have a bit more of a straight leg fit to them. Nonetheless, I'm not disappointed with the purchase and they will get plenty of use.
I wear around a 32-33 waist and the Large fits perfect but even if I lost a few pounds, they would still fit. There is lots of elastic in the waist and if that isn't enough, there is also a belt. When I wear the liner, they fit snug but not tight, without the liner they still fit, but much looser.
That click in liner is just so smart and those two map pockets are awesome. I put hand towels and my beenie in them while riding and totally forget I have anything in my pocket.
Probably the best looking and most functional mountain bike shorts that I own.
Finally got to use this today and it works great. Takes some practice but once you get the hang of using this thing it should become a regular part of your bicycle upkeep routine.
Some tips I picked up from experience:
Don't use while the chain is on the largest chainring, or the chain will most likely come off.
Don't expect every spec of crud to all come off the first time you use it. Regular use will eventually get the chain looking brand new again and don't be afraid to use an old toothbrush to get the crud out of the derailleur. While the chain is saturated with degreaser, other parts of your drivetrain are much easier to clean.
Using this is not "mess-free" but if you make it step one to washing your bike, it isn't that big a deal.
Good job Park Tools.
Just arrived and it looks even better in person than it does in the picture. I got the black and just so you know, the orange is not as bright as it is in the picture. It is a darker, deeper orange, so it looks even better against the black and gray. The jersey fits according to the size chart, and looked great on. If the price doesn't scare you off, you will like it.
...a little expensive. It has a nice design which makes it easy to wear by itself and fits under other jerseys well, like a second skin. On sale, this would be a great buy but the only thing that I can really say negatively about this shirt is it snags on everything. If you brush against anything, you are sure to have snags that need to be cut off.(think like women's nylon stockings)
In a nutshell, works great, looks good, is a little expensive at full price, and snags easily. If I had picked it up on sale and it didn't get so many snags, an easy 5 stars. As usual, HuckNRoll got it to me super fast with no complications.
Nice light shirt that looks great! At full price I would purchase this after careful consideration but at 60% off, it was a no brainer. This shirt will get lots of use when the warmer weather begins and I'm only sorry that they didn't have more choices in my size or I would have stocked up and bought two or three different colors.
Would I pay full price for these shorts? No, but at 50% off they are a good deal. Bought a pair, used them and found them to be more than adequate. The inner lining/pad works great and the outer shell feels really light while riding. I've had shorts that rub on my knees while riding but these didn't do that. No buttons popped off and I thought enough of the shorts to go ahead and buy a second pair in a different color. The only thing I would suggest would be for Fox to include a "real" pocket someplace. The little pocket that holds the goggle wipe can barely hold a set of keys.
