" I’ve now done a couple of cold winter rides in these. One dry but 0-5c my fingers were cold at the tips, but they did warm
Up eventually. From experience once the wadding in the gloves puffs up they get better. Second ride a bit warmer 5c but very wet and gritty. They kept the water and wind off and I didn’t suffer from cold finger tips.
They do work with touch screen Garmin, although the seems are a bit bulky so it can take a bit of prodding.
So fairly pleased with these, decent quality, good price.

" I used to use chamois cream but stopped. Started to get sores again & had been using a different cream, but still getting sores. I’ve now used this over the past week or so on around 7 rides and have had no sores. I think it has better antiseptic properties than other cream, but can cause a tingle. "

" I’ve had previous versions of these bib tights before.
They fit really well with front zip & side leg zips that have chafing guards. The fleece lining keeps you warm, I’ve done a few frosty rides this autumn and have remained warm. The seat pad seems to be really good quality, not too thin so should be good for fairly longish rides. I’ve only done 2 hours and remained comfortable throughout.

" The zip on my old case had broken for the second time & I needed something that could take two tubes, levers, CO2 and a multi tool. Amazingly this swallows the lot and has freed my back pockets.
Easy to fit but I’m not to sure where to mount my rear light as I used to put it on the now obscured seat post. The the bag does have a loop to mount a light but mine is the wrong type.
So if you need storage and don’t want a massive saddle bag, this does the trick!

" Great tyres, I bought my first pair following an off on a slippery corner. Never looked back since.
They offer good puncture resistance, which is welcome especially in the winter.
Current set are looking threadbare so it’s time for some more.

" I wasn't too sure about a brake upgrade but wow what a difference these have made to my bike. I found that before fitting these I was having to brake very early and I was very cautious when descending.
I am now able to brake a lot later and I know that if someone pulls out or I need to get on the brakes quickly I will stop.
No brainer over the stock brakes fitted to my Mekk. "

" Tempted by the price and the fact you get more than most of the branded stuff. Its ok flavour wise but not as nice as Goodness shakes, slightly better when you add some milk I've tried half & half which seems to improve the texture. I don't have to do this with the Goodness shakes powder. I've only tried chocolate and my favourite would usually be Vanilla. "

I spent a long evening fitting these, rear guard is on with a few mods, a bit of cutting out but not too much. Front guard was a bit more of a pain, lots of fidling to try and get the tyre not to catch the guard. This was OK in the kitchen but when I went out on a ride it was catching and making a noise throughout the ride. More fiddling I think! may have to remove it if it does not stop.

On the plus stye look quite good for mud guards and are light.

I'm just under 6ft, 32" inside leg, 42 chest and I am fine with Large, given your height I would go for at least XL as they are snug.

What season can I wear?

I want to buy a jersey for winter like thermo jersey.
Is it for winter or spring / fall ?
As long as you wear a long sleeve undershirt this is OK in winter, I have worn this in 5 degrees C with an under shirt and it is fine. If it is really cold then it may be better to have a wind proof jacket over the top.
