I have the wild lime/blue jewel and love the stye and color. So far I've found them to be warm and breathable. Looking forward to using them this winter on the bike and skate skiing.

I've been a fan of Vega products for a few years and usually prefer chocolate in their products but find that the chocolate in the new formulation is a little too sweet for my taste. Vanilla, however, is just right. Besides the taste I appreciate that its plant-based and provides 6g of glutamine, a component I've found to be a essential for recovery.

A must have

Filling the gap between jersey and jacket, Gabba is a must have piece that you probably didn't know you needed. It's soft, jersey-like fabric remains very breathable while repelling water and wind. Ventilation zippers on the front help you regulate temperature when you need more air flow during a hard effort or while climbing. The tail can be tucked under or pulled down to protect your chamois from spray when the roads are wet. I've paired it with a sleeveless base layer in the fall and then a heavier long sleeve in winter and have found it to be comfortable. The only downside I've found is that the sleeves are a little short on the XS which isn't an issue I usually come across with clothing. This isn't too much of an issue as gloves make up the difference.

I love sock-type shoe covers and the Belgian bootie makes me yearn for cooler weather and the tough-as-nails riding that comes with it. I like the neon stripe up the back on the Black/Yellow Fluo for visibility and style. They pair well with Castelli's Thermoflex knee and arm warmers that also have a Yellow Fluo stripe.

Hands down the easiest set up ever. It's so nice to customize via the app rather than toggling through multiple screens and hoping you got it right. I have yet to lose a ride which seemed to happen on the regular with Garmin connect. I love that I can see calls and texts on the screen and don't have to fuss with my phone unless it's necessary. And it gives you notifications on your phone reminding you the charge your Elemnt. In a nutshell, a very well designed product that gives cyclists what they want.

Most packs make me feel like they're wearing me so I was very happy to find the Skarbek. It's minimal but I can still fit a laptop, a change of clothes, shoes, and some extras. Plus, my helmet doesn't butt up against the top of the pack when its fully loaded. The construction is top-notch and its showing no signs of wear after months of everyday use.
