Bargain Alert Thread

Post by Anthony » Wed Aug 17, 2011 7:52 pm

I'll start off with-

Rab Microlight Down Vest, XL and XXL only, £48 here-

Great idea, shame that Crux top is only available in X'S small.

Stuart, you're both amazing and very very annoying :lol:

I'm going to resist. I must resist.

1)It has been superseded with the Ozo, which with the drop tail is more biking friendly.
2)I'm still chipping away at the creditcard to pay off my XTR brakes last month.

has anyone used a Kinetic? - I usually prefer Paramo kit but I want something that's a bit lighter and takes up leess space for bikepacking - any opinions on it?

Nope, I'd say have a look around for a Rab On Demand eVent smock. Weighs around 250g, full wired hood and a superb bit of kit. It's worth having a good search as I've seen them for around £100 but can't remember where. :(

I've had a look at the Demand - looks ideal but I've not seen it at a price I can justify for a back up jacket - I may just have to bite the bullet and buy one!
