There are some things to skimp on, and some not to. Do not skimp on your saddle. I trained on this saddle, and rode this saddle for 1000's and 1000's of miles... literally. No pains, no numbness, no sores, and no "aftereffects." Saddle is still on my ride, and still getting lots of use. Nice and long for lots of seating position changes to boot. Couldn't be happier with this saddle.
Jacket definitely kept the rain out, and was a great wind barrier. Fit nice and snug so I didn't look like Hanz or Franz while bombing downhills. back end was longer to cover the back end so my rear stayed nice and dry (it covered my entire hip pack that I was wearing, too- so all my gear stayed dry). Downside- breathability. While it kept the rain out, it also kept all of the body moisture in. Only thing it could have used were some under arm vent zips. Sizing chart was a little off, and had to send in for a size smaller.
Great Socks. The wool came through when I overdried my socks by the fire and burnt a few holes in them. Still kept my feet feeling warm and dry throughout a chilly bike tour. Have worn them since in the heat and worked great- dry feet are happy feet... Not so stinky feet are even happier feet.
