Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are not very useful shoe covers. They are no water resistant nor do they provide any wind blocking capabilities. I treated these with some water proof wax and now they are bomb-proof for all my Seattle rides but not insulating in the least. Look elsewhere if you need a warmer pair of covers. I wear a 43 EU shoe size and bought the Large. The fit is great and the pull handle on the rear of the cover is helpful. These are priced very low so you get what you pay for. I do like how subtle the logos are unlike most shoe covers. Material is a bit stretchy too which is nice.

I’m in Seattle. I’ve worn this jacket during misty mornings to light drizzles to complete downpours. It’s meant for the misty morning rides as it’ll keep you somewhat dry. If you plan on wearing it during actual rain, you will get soaked. I treated mine with some water proofing wax and now it keeps me dry during even the harshest rain storms. I’m 5’11 and 150 lbs. Sized up like the other comments mentioned to a Large and it fits well. Little loose so the flapping noise of the loose material will be very prevalent on fast rides. Neck collar could be tighter too. For the price, it’s a decent jacket. If you want a water resistant jacket tho, you should look at the other options.

Works as advertised. The pressure gauge is super accurate. The connection is simple to put on my presta valve. Sleek looking pump with the wooded handle. This is much better that portable pumps. I can effortlessly get to 100psi. Price is also outstanding for the value. Highly recommend.

I’ve been using this pack as an overnight weekend pack and I’m pleased with the performance. The 28L size is perfect for ultralight backpacking but does have a few drawbacks. First of all, the hydration reservoir is a big upgrade from my camelback. The reservoir is easy to fill, clean, and drink from without any leaking. I did buy a cap for the mouth piece as it can be difficult to lock. The pack itself is comfortable. I’m able to stuff my down bag, rain shell, sleeping air pad, and Slater UL2 tent in the main compartment. I like how the main compartment doesn’t expand that far into the front zipper pocket as it’s able to expand further out for more items. The side water bottle pockets can also fit Nalgenes size bottles with the main compartment stuffed, but is better with 1L Platypus bottles as they are flatter and lighter. There are many small pockets inside the compartments for smaller items. I don’t like how the dedicated reservoir pocket has a lot of dead space when placing the full water reservoir inside. I would’ve also liked seeing some sleeping pad straps on the outside of the pack for foam pads. Overall I’m pretty pleased with the pack, despite using it beyond its intended use. The more weight you carry, the more uncomfortable the pack gets. Keep it under 25-30lbs and you’ll be good. I feel the price is a bit high for this pack, but the water reservoir is worth every penny.
