I have these in a dark cherry color. They're pretty good for the sale price, but I think there are better glasses out there. I don't like them for cycling because they are full framed around the lenses, which creates a small blind spot - just a personal preference. The polarized lenses are pretty nice, but not as good as Costa lenses. They do seem a bit more durable than my costas, however, and I like how they have interchangeable lenses, plus the lifetime warranty is nice as well. The fit is decent - definitely for medium to large sized heads. Overall, I like them, but don't love them.

This jacket is sick. Water rolls right off of it, and it fits really well (if you're tall and skinny and stoic gear normally fits you). I'm 6'3" 190lbs with 36" sleevelength and the large is spot on. The pit zips are nice on the warmer days if it's not raining too hard. Unlike some other jackets, they are completely open in the pits, and don't have the mesh when you open them. It will be interesting to see how it holds up. It's very light so always good to have in the pack. I love it - it's 10 times better than my Marmot one that I bought just last year. My only gripe is that I didn't realize it only had one pocket. It was a surprise the first time I wore it, but it's all good, for the price and performance, it's a win.

It does what it's supposed to do, and works well with my Thule Aero bars. I've only used it for roadie wheels since my mountain rig has a through axel, but it holds the wheel steady at pretty much any speed. It's a cheap space saver and keeps the inside of your car clean if you care about such things.
