As everyone else has stated this is a great bottle. No leaks, keeps water cooler for a little longer than non insulated version and the shut off capable bite valve works great. Only issue I have found with this version is its length. If you are using this as a bottle for your bike cage, be aware that it is longer than the lower capacity version. If you don't have a lot of clearance in the middle triangle of your bike than this bottle might not fit, or be tough to grab when riding. Otherwise you can't go wrong with this product.
Bought these as mother's day gift for mom, and she really likes them. She had to down size a half size for a good fit and likes that they fit her narrow feet well. Blue color looks nice too, overall pleased with this purchase.
Not bad for freeze dried food. Doesn't beat actually cooking, but when in a pinch or when pack weight is an issue, this works fine. Could serve 2 small meals or one hungry person.
Does what it should. Makes coffee and cleans up easily. Could use a better lid with a sippy feature so I wouldn't need a separate cup or have to wait for coffee to cool enough to pour it down.
Lock was cut broad daylight in front of main entrance of popular grocery store. I would only use this lock if you want your bike stolen. Cutter also did not answer attempts to reach them about the quality of this product.
Not sure if the small size is for kids or adults?
I usually wear a size small in stoic products and other outdoor brands ie...Patagonia, but this was the smallest small I have purchased yet. Even with the stretchy material I couldn't button the neck of the shirt. Also, there is a strange, large snap button on the back of the collar. Not sure of the necessity of this, but with the girth of this snap, your collar should never pop.
I really do like the concept of a shirt that I could ride my bike to work in and not have to change. The material is almost spandexy and seems like it would dry quick, while still looking like a regular button up. I would even dress this shirt up and wear it to a casual summer wedding.
Overall, a really cool piece, just be careful on sizing.
Used for winter commuting to and from work. I also have the P.I. Cyclone glove which I like, and this is the insulated version of that glove. All the great windproof and water resistant qualities of the cyclone with an extra layer of insulation for the really cold days. I only give 4 stars because I agree with previous review that some dexterity is lost with the added bulk of the insulation, although this has not been a concern as I do not normally commute at ludicrous speed. Unlike a normal winter ski glove these also have very visible reflective elements on the tip of the thumb and back of the hand.
Overall, a very nice and needed addition to my winter clothing setup.
best piece of gear i have ever purchased. as soon as i start moving in it, it is too warm, so insulation is not a problem. if you are active in cold climates, this is the piece you need.
my knees were warm while i ninja kicked a hijacker on the jordan parkway. punk bitch is lucky he didn't get chain whipped. plus, the fools blood didn't get through the waterproof material to my sweet merino shorts.
great shoe covers! saved couple hundred bucks buying these over a winter pair of shoes. purchased size larger than recommended to fit my x-alp shoes and they fit perfect. super tight fit and neoprene sits about 3 inches above my ankle.
other reviews talk about not being waterproof under foot, which is obvious. there is no material underfoot. these are shoe covers for riding your bike, not shoe covers for walking around.
i use this light on steady setting. with full batteries, i can see the reflection (off the street) from this tail light about 2 feet behind my ride. in combination with a flasher you can't get much brighter than this. easy mounting system to seat post, i would not trust to clip it to my jersey.
this light fades as the batteries die and the temperature drops. in my experience this is accelerated in cold weather. flash would get slower and slower the longer i rode. other than that, beamer 5 is one of the brightest AA powered lights out there. i use this light to "be seen" not to "see."
this light is brighter than my automobile!
i use this light for daily commuting stacked with planet bike beamer 5.
believe it or not this system is about the same size as the photo. a lot smaller than i expected. battery velcros to top tube and light attaches to handlebar. only gripe i have is that i think the battery life is overstated. niterider states that it will last 9 hours on low power, but i have only got about 6 hours on low.
on full power you can blind people with this light, ride on.
bought this jacket when i started to miss my old carhartt look alike, and am very impressed so far. not stated in the description are the lined sleeves, which are super warm and not just canvas like the carhartt. what can i say, it's a work coat with some very nice additions.
bought this shirt as a loose long sleeve for cool weather cycling and was impressed with it's good looks and feel right out of the box. but after just one day riding to and from work i noticed what look like snags in the material. maybe if i got wrapped up in a bush this would make sense, but i was riding a bicycle on the street, and didn't come into contact with anything but the wind. then, after about 2 weeks of use the stitching around the wrists is fraying and coming out. the feel and function of the shirt have not changed in these 2 weeks, but for the price i would expect more. i can't see this shirt lasting one winter with steady use.
i also see there is a comment that this is the same material as patagonia's capilene. it might be the same material, but it is not near the same craftsmanship. i have owned a piece of capilene for years and only gotten rid of it when my girlfriend said it stunk too bad to be in the house, never because of it falling apart.
bottom line, if this is your price range for a baselayer, go with capilene.
