Is it possible to fall in love with lycra and not be related to Richard Simmons? For I believe that I have. These P.R.O. Octane Bib Shorts are the absolute most comfortable piece of clothing in my sporting wardrobe, bar none. I wore these bibs for my first two longer rides of this year-- Saturday and Sunday at 2+40 each day-- and my backside feels completely unmolested. Not a sore spot, not a chafe mark, not even any saddle soreness! Absolutely remarkable. Did I mention that these were my FIRST long rides of the year?! Previously, I couldn't sit on a saddle for more than a 1+30 in my old, run-of-the-mill Pearl Izumi Attack shorts before the chamois stitching would start to chafe and rub me arse raw. Those shorts are now in the trash! These P.R.O. Octane Bibs are more expensive, no doubt. But they have improved my biking experience a hundred times over. You will NOT be disappointed that you spent the extra $$$. Size wise-- I am 5'9" and have a 31 inch waist. These bibs fit PERFECTLY and the straps are completely unnoticeable-- no digging at at all. Great performance incredible fit. Throw down!

Fantastic jacket with lots of great features! For starters, I am 5'9", weigh 160#, and generally wear jackets with a 39" chest. The medium fits perfectly-- just baggy enough to layer appropriately without feeling like I was skiing in a smock. There is plenty of room behind the collar with and without the hood up and with or without a helmet on. No choking this chicken! The "boulder cuffs" are a cool sleeve feature-- a thumb hole allow a inner-sleeve "wrist gaiter" to cover the gap not covered by gauntlet gloves. The inner media pocket is a bit measley and the exterior pockets are pretty huge. I wish they could have shared the love on that one, as well as added, potentially, a pass pocket on the sleeve or another center-chest pocket. The powder skirt works well, as is evidenced by lack of diaper rash after last Wednesday's 30" Snowbird romp. The thing is stlyish and the eVent worked like a champ. This is my first Westcomb purchase and I'm recommending it.
