" Highly visible vertical strips at the back although the chevrons are less reflective. Handy pocket to hold a rear light. Keeps the rucksack dry. Very impressed with the 2 press stud fixings, they haven't weakened or worn in any way over the year that I have been using this cover. Unfortunate choice of name on the side though, but worth ignoring. "
Pros: Attractive, Durable, Rugged, Good Fit

" I bought this product to replace the old green drive belt I have on my old Tacx rollers which are grey and orange in colour. I have a 51cm frame bike which sits the front wheel virtually on top of the front roller instead of a centimetre or two further back. It simply does not stretch far enough. There is nothing wrong with the quality of this product and I am sure if it is intended as a replacement for a far newer model of Tacx roller it would be excellent. "
Cons: Unadjustable

" Brightly illuminates an area around itself and the back of the bike with side visibility a selling point for me. I replaced it this year with a light which would 'beam' light further down the road, although happy with this light, this one may well have been the better choice with its 180 degrees of light and multitude of flashing options. Also it is far easier to know if I have remembered to switch it on or not when setting off from a brightly lit area. "
Pros: Great Value, High Quality
Cons: Bulky

" Almost look forward to the rain now :)
Rode all last winter without waterproofs and found these trousers make a massive difference. I would get wet legs within a minute of two but these trousers kept me dry in heavy rain for a 45 minute comute home. Also for riding in the dark I am impressed with the brightness of the reflectives considering car drivers vision may be impared with rain in the dark.
I wear size 8/10 trousers but bought these in size 14 as I didn't want to feel restricted by them and I am happy with this size. Great flexibility on the knees, adjustability on the ankles and easy to put on with the large zip opening. "
Pros: Adjustable, Lightweight

" Bought this light for comute back through dark wooded country lanes. It is fantastically bright when angled at 180 degrees, virtually as good as my car headlights along the same route, although angling the light at this level I shield it with my hand for any oncoming traffic, rather than dimming the light down or angling it back down, as I feel it would be a nuisance and dangerous being so bright. I consider this a small compromise for such brilliant vision at night which also allows me to ride at the same speed as I would in daylight. It is an exceptionally bright light. My partner's opinion it is too bright for oncoming traffic; he rode my bike back in the dark on the second highest setting from 300yds away and it looked like the North Star coming down the hill. Lasts longer after the red low battery warning light after it has been charged a few times I have found. "
Pros: High Quality, Lightweight, Versatile

Breathability.

How well do these trousers breathe and keep you dry inside?
They do get damp inside, although my tights were quite comfortable when I took these off, only vaguely damp. Rode them in 45 mins of downpour once and they did not get any more damp than 5 - 10 mins of rain. They dry quickly when turned inside out.

what mounting bracket?

Does this light come with the newer XP-RB-10 quick release mounting bracket rather than the older rubber o-ring mount?
I have two of these lights and the most recent one came with the quick release mounting bracket.

is there a bar mtg as well as helmet mtg

Yes there is. Some versions have a rubber strap which tends to slip downwards. Other versions have a solid plastic mounting that is screwed down on the handlebars and does not slip.

Are the reflective stips stitched on?

Is there stitching up and down either side of the reflective strip?

Some of the older versions don't have stitching, which means the reflective strip is just stuck on with glue and eventually comes loose (like on my current Respro backpack cover) - this is one reason I am buying a new one!

IF IT IS NOT stitched on to this one, please let me know which of the Respro backpack covers have the reflective strips stitched on.
The reflective strips are stitched on and it looks exactly like the one in the picture. I bought this about a year ago.

How waterproof is this light? Will it still work after an hour of heavy winter rain?

Mine worked just fine in 45 minutes of heavy rain.
