How is the toe box? Generous or narrow? Thank you.
Expected so much more from these, especially considering the pinky/ring finger combo. Gives the impression that they are for cold weather. I wouldn't use these on the road below 42(F). The back of the glove has Windstopper, but if you blow between the fingers you'll see that the sides of the fingers let's the cold breeze right through. I still like the feel and construction though, and make a good cool weather mountain bike glove. Generous terry cloth area for whiping the snot away.
As much as I like Gore apparel (love my Gore Fusion gloves for extreme temps) there are just too many better winter road glove offerings for the price.
Like most, I had to one size up
I don't think Exposure's chargers are two piece seperate cable and plug in box (at least mine isn't), so if you want to be able to charge off a USB, you'll need this. $10 is pretty good insurance to leave at the office if you forgot to charge at home. Won't tell you when the light's charged.
And the purpose is being able to look down at the Garmin unit without tucking my head down. Relatively expensive for a piece of plastic, yes. But economies of scale and all that, and it's still a worthy buy.
I don't think I would put this thing on my mountain bike due to exposure in a crash .
While some southern riders feel the need for full tights when it drops to 60, we here in the NE have to deal with a little more. And these knickers are great for rides that can dip into the low 40s. The compression is pretty good and the exterior fabric smooth so it doesn't get caught on a lot of things creating pulls. The inner micro fleece is soft and comfortable, providing just the right amount of warmth for rides ~41-55 degrees. I still haven't busted out my Forma Red Super Roubaix bibs as it's been unseasonably warm so far this late fall/early winter.
If you're willing to suffer a little, you can actually go lower, like to 40. Have used these in 3 hr rides starting at 35 and finishing at 39, and though my toes were cold, they weren't dead frozen.
Sucks when you have to play a guessing game as temps start to fall, but you can have some reasonable confidence that these will provide some comfort,even if you chose wrong.
Bottoms and stitching have held up after years of use.
Will this work well for fighting crime? The dry cleaners kind of messed up my superhero suit. If it can take a few roundhouse kicks and lazerbeams, this seems like a suitable temporary alternative.
Could these be used for snowboarding too? I don't fall very often anymore, but having hip bursitis, I would like to minimize damage from further impacts. How good is the hip protection vs 661 or POC (w/o chamois). Figured I could use these for double duty those few times I go downhill moutain biking Thanks.
If you don't want to spend a lot, they are a very good value. If they're a little more than what you want to spend, it's still worth the extra $ over cheaper glasses. Optics are very good, lenses are easy to change, and they're comfortable. I enjoy my Smith V90s a little more, but I'd still be wearing these had it not been for my dog eating the dark lense. Luckily she left the frame alone so they still do clear lense duty.
Got quite a bit of use out of these last winter. Relatively easy to get on. I wind up redoing the rear velco at least once to try and line it up properly. Maybe I am just being anal. They do a good job against rain, and a decent job of keep ing feet warm. Of course, when the temps dip into the mid 30s, I grab my winter shoes.
I can't believe I am the first to review this jacket. I love it. Picked it up from my LBS for $176 out the door at the beginning of the season and I am still stoked with that price. For the sale price here, it's a very worthy buy if you don't yet have a winter jacket or if you need a second, third, whatever.
Have used this piece down into the high teens with screaming winds. Of course I had a ss base, thin long sleeve poly base, thin wool armwarmers, and a jersey underneath, but it wasn't bulky one bit (my friend asked " Are you going to be OK in that?"). It breathes well even with the windproof front. Perfect as a standalone with a ss base at around 35+.
Consider sizing up. I wear medium Lazer bibs (awesome), but needed a large jacket, and I have a fairly small torso.
Made in Italy and nicely contructed. Sweet!
