" I bought this top to give me an extra layer as the weather gets colder and it is fab! I bought a 14, my usual size, and the fit is spot on, arms and back plenty long enough, which is often a problem as I am quite tall. Colour (grey and black) a bit drab but it will be worn under other tops so doesn't really matter. "

" I am a road cyclist and more familiar with lycra shorts but, with a cycling holiday to belgium looming, did not want to be strolling around a packed ferry in lycra so bought these!
They are an excellent product, lightweight but robust, and a great fit, with adjustable straps on the waistband. The pad on the detachable inner shorts is not quite as effective as on my other shorts but did the trick for the first 30km stretch on my journey. The shorts are a decent length and have several pockets for all your bits and pieces. "

" Having wasted so much time deciding whether to wear a long or short sleeved top before a ride, and usually getting it wrong, I chanced upon arm warmers when surfing the wiggle web site. And I can't believe how I've managed without them so far!
These particular ones are very soft and snug, but stretchy enough to allow a good fit. The material is very strong, so I expect them to last a long time, and they look fab. If it gets too warm, whip them off and pop them in your pocket. Sorted! "

" Bought this after reading an excellent review of it in a cycling magazine and they were right - it is an excellent product and an economical rival to Assos cream.
The consistency is just right, neither too thick or thin, so you only need a minimal amount to do the job, so a tub will last a long time. "

" Having endured a few rides on the very narrow saddle that came with my bike (Specialized Tricross), I realised that it was not designed with my rear in mind! So I bought this women specific padded seat and instantly felt the difference - bearly a tender part on a 40 mile ride. A great buy, especially as it wasn't as expensive as many other similar saddles. "

" I bought this top just in time for the recent cold snap and am so glad I did because it kept me warm where all else had failed. I ventured out on New Year's Day at minus 2 degrees and, although I could feel the wind whistling around my body, I was warm as toast on the inside. Just need to find some warmer gloves and socks, as my hands and feet were freezing!!
It also fits really well and looks stylish so top marks all round. "

Suitable size

I have size EU44 cycling shoe, what size sock would be suitable? Would it be 44-46 or one size down?
I am EU43 and bought 42-44, and they are fit really well, so i would go for the 44-46 in your case.

Is this product suitable for females?

Of course, why not, we chafe too! It tingles when you first use it, and feels quite strange, but does the trick.

I am a man with size 8.5 hands, would these XL gloves fit me or are they specifically womens gloves in other ways?

I am female and have worn both men's and women's gloves in the past. I don't think there are any differences except that womens come in smaller sizes and visa versa. So just get the gloves that fit you best, regardless of gender!

Are the ladies baggy shorts water proof?

I went through some heavy rain showers and the water ran off them. They are also extremely lightweight so dry very quickly.

Sizing

Can you provide a size guide to these as I have no idea which ones to order. Cheers
Best answer
I am a 5ft 7 female of medium build and the small/medium size are a perfect fit. So I would think that a slender bloke of 5ft 8 or less, could get away with small/medium; anyone else would need the larger size.

Hope this helps!
