" I bought these for commuting in wet and cold weather. They are excellent at keeping wind chill off your feet. They keep most water out of your shoes, biut they have a limit, more than 30 minutes of drenching rain will soak them through, but they still work to keep your feet warm in such conditions; so I think they are succesful. These are pretty easy to get on and off, as easy as could be expected. The toes sometimes drift up and I have to take care to keep the under-foot strap clear of the cleats. I am wearing these more often than I expected as they are convenient enough to wear 'just-in-case' rather than only when they are really needed. "
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Rugged, Adjustable, Lightweight

" This jersey is very warm, fits well, looks good and has great pockets at the back. Has some effect keeping wind out, but is probably best under a hard shell on the very coldest of days. This is very warm, so only consider for real cold riding. "

" These fit well and keep cool in hot weather commuting. I find any Coolmax based sock to have a noticeable feel to them, sometimes they are too cool in a breeze and yet they don't seem to breathe the same as simple cotton socks. These socks have some loose threads, but the shape and fit are good and they last OK. "

Is this classed as a soft-shell jacket?

I would say no. My one has limited effectiveness keeping out wind chill. It will stay warm when wet, but has no extra water repellant ability.

What size for tall skinny male?

I am 184cm but have a 32" waist. Looking at the chart, I'm either a small #by waist#, or large #by height#. Which size do i get? Thx
I am a similar build, the shorts have a lot of stretch and are quite long. I was happy with the small, going by the waist.
