Howies Dyfi jacket £23.40 at Wiggle
yay, blue one just arrived, to compliment my existing orange one 🙂 very versatile piece of kit I reckon, and well suited to mtb riding in variable Scottish conditions.
I reckon my Gore Countdown Gilet will either be hitting the classifieds or relegated to road only duties shortly 🙂Posted 3 years agoMrSalmonMember
Mine came the other day. Didn’t realise it had the more breathable panels on it, so pleasant surprise there. Only thing that could maybe be a bit better is a few more reflective bits. On the whole though pretty happy with it (without having actually worn it yet!) especially for £23.Posted 3 years agobenp1Subscriber
Saw the price at Wiggle independently of STW and bought one a little while ago. Bought a large orange one, normally a medium but bought a size up.
Fit is quite good, relatively slim cut but not massively so. Arms are long enough for me at 6’2 if I’m not too leant over, but a full arms out stretch will have the arms riding up.
Doesn’t pack up as small as a montane featherlite shirt and would also like more reflective stuff on it. Has some softer more stretch fabric which will probably help breathability but not so good for water resistance. Not used it in anger yetPosted 3 years agoJamieMember

I ordered another one in orange, and it seems they have reduced the reflective bits by about 60% on the new versions. Other than that, they’ve added a double sided zip on the stash pocket and a little pocket insert in there to hold your generic phone/mp3 player in place.Posted 3 years agocuriousyellowSubscriber
Looks like a pretty good jacket for running and as an emergency stash and forget jacket in the MTB pack for autumn/spring rides.
I’ll stick to my softshell for winter riding.
Tempted to buy a second one at this price so I can have one for running and one for cycling though!Posted 3 years agoMrSalmonMember

That’s a bit harsh. I’ve got a few duplicates of things I could share across stuff, but I reckon it’s sharing the load, and as an added bonus you get to avoid stuff like putting wet minging stuff on sometimes.stumpy01Member

i got mine, fit seems quite big for a medium! maybe i’m a rake….great for milder winter xc rides. not many sizes left now
I was gonna get one, but wasn’t sure whether a medium would be too small.Posted 3 years ago
I’m about a 39″ chest with fairly broad shoulders, which is where i normally struggle with cycling stuff.
Wondering whether to give it a go and just send back if not the right size.nemesisSubscriber

Selling a Planet X XLS cyclocross frame, fork and headset.
Full carbon. All black. Size 54cm
Frame is currently built up but I have ridden it less than 100 miles. Not a mark on it. Great bike, I just have a hankering for another steel frame.
