No worries Richie. Happy to help.

I will say that the bib shorts fit a little tight on me around the thighs compared with other kits I own. Feels like the fabric around thighs is stretching/stretched to its limit. Anyone else feel this way or is it just me. I'm super happy with it. Maybe this kit just has more compression than I am use to. ;)

Apparently the fabric can stretch to 500% without breaking, so I guess they cut it tight. It's good for those of us with weedy climber's thighs.

Finally managed to pick mine up from the FedEx depo, it fits perfectly and looks to be really good quality, design is cool too. Huge thanks to Prend for all of the effort on this one!

Thanks for sharing that. I assumed it would be fine, just was different than I had experienced before.

If anyone has them, how does the fit of the vest compare to the slim fit jersey? Also, is the vest a softshell like material?

Thanks,

Campbell.

Got mine today. The design look really nice in the flesh. The quality seems decent and the fit is good.

Prendrefeu - many thanks for making this happen. Really appreciate your effort.

campbellrae: The vest doesn't have as great a fit as the jersey. The front of the vest is not elastic and doesn't cling as well to my chest as the jersey does. I went for a M in all three garments, but I guess I might have chosen an S for the vest and maybe even for the jersey for an even snugger fit.

To make an example; the vest could easily fit a pair of breasts :thumbup: But it fits better than most vests I've tried.

I got the XS Slim Jersey & XS Slim vest:

The vest fits very well. Due to the front vest material, not being "elastic" it dosen't stay perfectly snug (as the Jersey), but it fits VERY well. It's one of the better fitting vest's I have owned, of this type (shell type, not an elastic material).
:thumbup:

(I've use Garneu, Pearl, Assos, Castelli, Cappo etc...)

The only better fitting vest I've tried is a Nalini team version my club currently uses. However the bibs in the same series are complete crap.. WW kit a much better overall package so far :-)

Thanks for the replies! Good to know it comes up a similar size, makes choosing easier.

Just got my skinsuit today.
Size L fits me (185cm x 81kg) very well for a nice compressive fit.
The top half is very stretchy, which makes the (non-stretching) full zip pull up a bit / pull the collar down a bit in a standing position. But it is a non issue on the bike.

The more stretchy top vs. less compressive middle/hip area isn't the most flattering around the waist. Guess that's more incentive to pedal off a couple more kilos :)

Here are some quick selfies. Looks like it'll be getting dirty on the cross bike tomorrow morning, so maybe I'll end up with an on the bike pic soon.

My jersey is loose on the arms and very tight on the bottom. Strange.

That is strange. What size(s) did you order and what size(s) do you normally wear (so we can compare and figure out what happened) ?
