no problem:thumbsup:

Bike jacket - Camoflage? Seems counter intuitive to me. Is it to hide from the bears in the mountains?
But then, what do I know - I ride my bike on the road.

I don't care how much it's reduced by, it's still a stupid price for a bike jacket.

you are obviously not a mountain biker, this is a very high quality jacket which can't be bought anywhere else this cheap

I don't doubt it's good quality (I would certainly hope so at that price) but the fact remains that almost 100 quid for something like this is plain madness. Be objective.

If you are a serious biker you will know that biking clothes are expensive, be it, shorts, lycra or tops.

This is the chepest price you will find this anywhere unless you can prove differently

They're only expensive because bike 'enthusiasts' will pay it. It's that brand snobbery thing again. I already said it should be good quality but by any objective measure it simply isn't worth anything approaching 100 quid.

Conversely, Primark could make a very good quality jacket (actually a few of their items are well made) but because of the name no one would pay much for it.

If this is the 'Gore' of 'Goretex' then it will be very good but that stuff is all ridiculously overpriced.

Forget the brands, people - try to make up your own mind on what something is really worth. Or is it really just the name on the front that you want to show off?


PS So why is it camouflage then when every other bike jacket does its best to ensure you are visible?

It's mine now! :thumbsup:

Bought one. They look to be sized quite small - anyone with experience of them?

If you show me a a jacket with the same spec as this I'll buy it - brands dont mean much to me.

p.s. It's camo so I can hide in the woods ;-)
