Where it says "air ventilation pleat" read "hole". Nice-looking jacket though!

The jackets are good.

I tried a jacket on last year. Fit round the chest was fine but sleeves came down to just past my elbows.

I exaggerate slightly but the arms were *incredibly* short. Especially if you consider you need them a bit longer due to position on bike.

The mitts are awful. Look OK but inside it has a piece of foam that really hurt my hands. Theres a pair of Gore mits on Amazon for a £10er that really are superb!

All my winter gear is from Aldi. It's lasted three years and is set to go on...

I bought a pair of Aldi winter gloves last year, can't remember what they cost but less than a tenner. When temperatures fell below about 4 deg C the ends of my fingers went numb so I bought a pair of branded gloves in a sale(RRP £40) - guess what? When temperatures fell below 4 deg C the ends of my fingers went numb!
Their jackets and jerseys are fine for what I do and the shorts OK for up to about 2.5 hours - for longer rides I wear my branded pair.

I think I'll go for one of those £9.99 folding rain jackets for a get me home emergency jacket , Oh and a Chimnea. Cheers for the heads up.
