The new Stower MTE jacket is made from a 100% nylon ripstop fabric that is designed to be weather resistant with a DWR coating. It’s a lightweight number and easily packable, folding away into its own pocket, making it ideal for chucking in the backpack in case the weather turns or the temperature drops. There’s a vented back yoke, elasticated cuffs and a reflective lining.

The Old Skool backpack is designed to be a lightweight and packable backpack with a 22-litre capacity that should be enough for carrying the essentials to and from work or university. It’s a simple bag with one large main compartment to stash everything and a front zipped pocket for smaller essentials that you need easier access to, like your house keys. It’s made from 100% polyester and features reflective detailing.

A Vans range wouldn’t be complete without some matching footwear and as part of the new Transit Line the US company has launched four shoes in this collection, the  Sk8-Hi Reissue DX, Old Skool Reissue DX, Era 59 DX and Iso 1.5. They feature suede and leather uppers and UltraCush sock liners with padded collars, but the best bit is the signature waffle sole that provides stacks of grip on flat pedals.

He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds, and you can now find him over on his own YouTube channel David Arthur - Just Ride Bikes
