GREAT LAKES REGION
Andrew is right. Sometimes those top tube storage bags may tend to shift. But this bag deff. won't work hanging from the top tube (might be in the way, depending on frame/leg size, and size of bag you might choose, for one thing) , and it likely won't stay perched on the top tube, either. Deff. try one of those specifically designed for mounting on the top tube. Good luck.
These also easily tuck away when not needed for round-town use.
and comfy wrist gaiters.
Norrona's cool *Viking dude logo on back!
Just got the ladies version...same fleece, different cut...so since there's no pic. of the back of this incredible fleece, here it is...
Fleece sports Norrona's cool little VIKING logo on the back!
Backside of this great, cozy fleece!
Perfect sleeve length. Comfortable, and adjustable.
New to Norrona...O.M.G...when I think of how much $$$ I've virtually wasted on other "wanna-b's"!
Without being too redundant (everyone is spot on about this awesome fleece); fit is fab, and I was pleasantly surprised on the flattering fit and just the right bit of stretch, allowing for excellent movement, etc. Love the drop 'tail', so to speak, covering your bottom a bit...more so than other's.
Love the longer arms, too (I'm only 5'6", but many jackets, etc fall short, so to speak). Gloves are easily worn with or without the wrist 'gaiters...with the stretch ability of this fleece, you can simply move the bottom of the sleeves up a tad to accommodate any gloves.
Am wearing as both a mid. layer, and for work, where when it gets busy, we often have to wear winter coats...indoors, plus we're not allowed "hoodies" (hard to find a really warm fleece that doesn't have a hood! So this will definitely help...don't have to bulk up, as this has kept me warm enough...yea!
And the feel: sort of like putting on a cuddly, soft teddy bear (but in no way do you look like one)!
And finally, love the little *Viking dude...kind of reminds me of one of my ol' boyfriends!
Looking forward to expanding my winter wardrobe which will definitely encompass *NORRONA!
Measurements from the Norrona site for a "M" are:
from nape to waist: 16" (they don't give the total length)
Seat/hips: to 40"
From the Norrona site: the "M", "L", & "XL" all are 16" from nape to waist; that's the only torso length measurements given.
You can also go to the Norrona site, and see the latest offerings, see videos, and get a little more product info; and still purchase here at B.C.
To keep these lenses clean, water-shedding, and additional *help to keep fogging at bay: Oakley's *HYDROPHOBIC lens cleaner. It really makes a diff. Safe for ALL lens types.
North Face says it's 25".
Hope this Helps.
Wide band holds pants leg in place and out of the chain; reflective 3M strip helps motorist see you better, too!
Keep the baggy bottoms of these pants out of the chain with this really great leg band by Dueter...best I've found yet!
Stay out of trouble with a great leg band!
Since these are baggy from the knees down, a good pants' leg protector is a need to keep you out of the chain. This is the best band I've found so far, made by Deuter.
Another option for both warmth & added rain/wet protection might be using the *Polare Due & wearing Gore's Alp-X GT rain pants over top for total rain/slush protection (they have a great super light weight rain/wind jacket, too...ALP-X 2.0 GT). If you do try these pants, make sure you purchase a good leg band to keep the bottom pants leg out of the chain, as they are somewhat baggy from the knee down. They are very light weight and pretty packable (if you use a pack). I like a leg band made by Dueter...you might have to special order from your local bike shop...$11.00, but worth it (I'll post a pic on the Gore GT pants page, as all who purchase these pants should deff. have this band!).
