Great 4 season rubber
Posted31 January 2016
" Thought I'd give these a punt as they've recieved favorable reviews elsewhere. Heard they came up very large so went for the 23mm. Well turns out they're 23mm on my 17mm internal rims.
Regardless they're still plenty comfortable, and roll noticably faster than the GP4S and Duranos I was using. Spin up to speed quickly, grip well in all weather and no punctures yet. "
Pros: Comfortable, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight

Versatile bag
Posted27 November 2015
" I've used this a lot for overnight trips to a week away (I pack light) and often for day trips with the family, since toddlers seem to need so much stuff. It's been excellent so far with no sign of wear and tear and I haven't been gentle with it.
I have used it as intended, to carry stuff on my bike, but not for a long commute as I personally can't find a sweet spot with the shoulder straps. "
Pros: Durable, Great Value
Cons: Poor Fit

Tastes fine and works
Posted27 November 2015
" I've had both chocolate and banana now, can't say I have a preference they're both good and surprisingly, actually taste like they're supposed to.
Noticeable reduction in leg soreness the day after a ride, just follow the instructions and don't be tempted to mix it with milk. Mixes up fine with a good shake but a blender is easier if making it up at home. "
Pros: tastes good, works

Nice gloves, odd fit
Posted27 November 2015
" They do seem a bit baggy and the fingers are quite long, but it doesn't actually bother me when they're under other gloves or when riding.
They also surprised me by fitting under some quite snug long finger gloves I was sure they wouldn't go under, they really are very thing but just the right amount of warmth for cold, still days or as a liner glove. "

Cons: Poor Fit

Excellent winter tights
Posted27 November 2015
" Tried these out on a couple of rides; first my commute (22 miles each way) and a training ride of 70 odd miles.
On my commute I try and push the pace, and these tights performed admirably. It was a bit too warm for them, about 8-10 degrees with a cool wind but everyone's thermostat is different. Even so, the sweat build up didn't affect comfort at all due to the quality of the tights; good fit, no bunching and a lovely pad.
On the longer ride at a slower pace, thus more pressure on the saddle, they were just as comfortable on mile 70 as they were on mile 1.
Very much looking forward to my winter audax rides now. "

Excellent light gilet
Posted10 September 2015
" If you roll it up it's about the size of a chocolate bar, weighs nothing and does a fine job keeping the wide off your core. Perfect for the back pocket in autumn, especially if it's a bit gloomy as it's very bright.
Race fit, and quite short (but not overly so, sits just above the bottom of my jersey) so if you're long in the body or a bigger build go a size up. "
Pros: Attractive, Good Fit, Lightweight, Versatile

My new favourite jersey
Posted10 September 2015
" It's a great fit for the intended purpose; close but not super tight. Just right to get a base layer under without flapping in the wind.
The fabric is lovely, it's not heavy like full on winter roubaix fleece but you'll notice how much heavier it is compared to a summer jersey. Very soft and stretchy.
Wore it today on a long ride (with some other things in the Blok range) and it was ideal for the conditions I encountered. Started cold and got progressively warmer until the high teens and it was fine throughout by taking off layers and unzipping a bit. I was worried I'd get too warm if the mercury rose but it was just fine.
Best part for me are the graphics, high viz but not dorky and certainly very different from other more sedate jerseys on the market. "

Loose or snug fit

According to the sizing chart, I;d need a XL for a 46 chest. Does this give plenty room for wearing base layers/jerseys, or is it a closer fit only suitable for tighter fitting layers
I can just about squeeze a regular hoodie under mine before it gets too snug, 39 1/2 inch chest in a medium

Does the fabric remain waterproof when wearing a rucksack?

Other waterproof jackets have the "tent" effect when worn with a rucksack - rain seeps through where rucksack straps are in contact, mainly on shoulders.
I haven't noticed this myself, been completely dry under my rucksack (Camelbak charge if that makes any difference).
