" Swimming in Scotland in May has it's downsides. This swim cap not only makes the temperature more bearable but the bright colours allows coach/lifeguard to keep an eye on the swimmer.
Good fit. Was initially worried as not adjustable but once slipped on it sits securely without choking.
"
Pros: Good Fit, Great Value

" good and secure attachment to saddle.
looks like sound quality
Only problem I have is that zip goes round the top. So when tightly secured to saddle this means that it is fiddly to open the zip.

Pros: Adjustable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value
Cons: zip opens with difficulty

" Ordered the shock absorber in my usual bra size. Well that was never going to work. The cup was way too big giving no support. I reckon the shock absorber functions by squashing things. Went down one cupsize and there is still a bit of room.
I am quite happy with comfort, like the padded shoulder straps and how it looks quite discreet under any sport top/vest. Back fastenings are a bit fiddly.
Advice: Try the size for fit in any sport shop. You'll be surprised.

Pros: Comfortable

" Liked the look of this shoe and had a race coming up. Ordered in Size 5. I have 2 other Saucony running shoes in Size 5 so was confident that this would be a good fit. Even put side by side with my current shoes they come in smaller/shorter. I have since bought the 5.5 and they JUST fit. "

" Have tried a variety of sport drinks before and always found them a bit icky and sweet. high 5 isotonic is a huge jar so be sure you are going to do lots of exercise to use it. It tastes pleasant enough and I did notice I tire less on prolonged runs.
Works out much less expensive than other preparations. You can just make up as much as you need on the day.

" was skeptical about running belt. The ones i tried had one big bottle and always wobbled around. The adidas one has 3 small bottles which are well balanced around your waist. Therefore they do not shake the belt around when you run. I find it difficult to drink from the bottle as they are oddly shaped. I am sure I will get used to it. On the downside I have already misplaced 2 bottles and they are specially designed to fit the loops. Not sure if you can buy replacement ones separately. The pocket is pathetic! I can hardly squeeze my phone in and a key would not fit in with the phone. So zero points for the pocket. But the belt sits rocksolid on the hips and therefore it is a winner on the drink carrier front "
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Not Enough Features, pocket to small

" Ok. I was warned they are baggy. Yes, the bum looks big in this. On the plus side: they are fast drying and have useful pockets, 2 of them zipped.
Waist adjustable with Velcro. Not sure about the strange button at the front. If the mechanism fails it would be difficult to repair it. (There is a metal post which snug fits into a metal circle) What is wrong with a button?
