Great kit you're glad you bought
Salomon fast 3 jacket. Bought it in 2011 and its still going strong. Keeps me dry and warm and thanks to the vented under arms I never get too hot or sweaty. Use it pretty much every day for road rides. Only problem is its a bit big for me now, and it needs a hood to be perfect.
BBB heavy duty overshoes, made winter riding a lot more bareable.Posted 4 years agorascalMember
My nomination – Gore Phantom.
Used it loads over a base layer when cold – perfect.
Sunny (but breezy) road ride today and couldn’t decide what top to wear…so zip off the arms and it’s a windproof, full-zip jersey with pockets on the back for bits – perfect again!
Not cheap but so glad I got one when I did 🙂
What one piece of kit have you got that you couldn’t do without?Posted 4 years agodiscoduckMember

That’s a record surely, mine are paper thin on the palms now and I’ve been expecting them to wear through over the past month but they refuse to give up the fight,
All TLD kit I’ve had has lasted me a long time ? I either ride like a fairy or I should wash them more often ?
I wore them to day and they were crusty and salt stained with sweat,
The rubber star on the finger fell off about 18 months ago, the XC logo came off in the gravel when I had a moment over a year ago ?
I’ve got two more pairs waiting in the wings so I hope they last more than a fortnight ?KevevsMember
NOT my Gore Phantom 2 jacket.Great jacket apart from Zip broke. you’d think it’d be good to go for that money, I saved ages to buy that jacket thinking it’d do me fine.. had to get a £12 replacement zip put in. if I wanted a shit zip, I’d’ve bought a shit jacket. Nice one Gore. I am now a beacon of bad words for Gore, from my one first experience of their stuff. My Aldi jacket and many other jacket zips works fine!Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber

Did you send it back to them?
Totally trashed the arm in a Race Face jacket then the pit zip broke, jacket was replaced FOCPosted 4 years agoKevevsMember
no, Can’t be arsed with all that. Why should I? I want it to **** work for £110! I want to ride my bike, not wait for stuff/post stuff/wrap stuff to be posted back n forth and letters and crap, didn’t pay for that. Just won’t buy anything from them ever again. Got a cheap zip put in and good to go.. even the zip place said it was great quality/well made/double stitching etc. but it BROKE!! one thing that pishes me off is crap zips.Posted 4 years ago
