    Anyone else use them?

    I’ve just received an order I made last Wednesday evening.

    Had some quality stuf from them in the past too. Been using their winter jacket for two winters which is great. Has long zipped vents on the front for when you overheat

    I’ve got the montezumers 3/4 with fleeced knees, which are great & a couple of tops can’t fault the stuff. the only problem is when Gorden Brown and his thieving tax scum mates stick thier beaks in.Oh well I must be helping Gorden save the world?

    Oh, have you been stung then? I must have been lucky as all my stuff has come through OK.

    I have the montezumers too 8)

    Yep, have a fair bit of their stuff – a draft dodger top that’s been used for several winters of daily commuting, double happy shorts, submerino and the sleeveless merino tops.

    Seems to last well, arrive quickly (I’ve just received some stuff off them that arrived in about 4 days), and I’ve never been stung for duty. Don’t they add it in to the cost of the stuff now? The stuff I got last week arrived with a UK post office label.

    I’ve a Baked Alaska, which i’m very happy with. My lady has the Popsicle (not matching colours, thankfully). When we last ordered the item was delivered to the wrong address, and GE sent another straight away with a free gift, even before we had filled out the Royal Mail forms. Never had any duty problems.

    Did I mention I really really like the Baked Alaska?

    I’ve got loads of their stuff (jerseys, shorts, base layers & jacket) as it fits me better than any UK/Euro clothing I’ve found and they actually know how to stitch there garments together unlike a certain UK manufacturer that I’ve used before.
    As ChrisHeath said they now include UK tax in their pricing so no more getting stung.

    There’s also Krank Dirtwear in New Zealand – the tops I’ve had from them have been better quality than Ground Effect.

    The customer service was excellent.

    2 x Submerino and chipolata gloves here.
    Both “choice” as they say in the land of the white long cloud

    Can really recommend Krank,apart from knowing the guy whos a bloody good guy,there gears tops and probably a bit unique in the UK.Easily as good if not better than GF stuff and the service is very fast.

    Made in Kiwi land too then? Look quite similar in their designs. They like that logo on the clothing though – not sure i’d want that everywhere

    A spin around on one might change your mind?

    Made in NZ quite different in the flesh to GF.I especially like the baggies and the design and finnish on all the clothing is very sharp.

    i’ve a baked alaska, a sub-merino, a rock lobster (? might not be its name – long sleeved summer merino thing anyway), and some of their 3/4 tights. all quality stuff.

    had their top of the range jacket which was rubbish though. very well made and thought out, i liked the pit zips etc etc etc, but the fabris just wasn’t breathable enough, and lost its w/proofness VERY quickly.
    not recommended!!

    will buy more stuff from them though.
