Very happy

PostedNovember 7, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Lightweight, great all round suit
Cons: little uncomfortable on hour bike ride
Brought this ready for upcoming triathlon.
Found this a little awkward to get on, but I am broad shouldered and not used to wearing something like this.
Swimming in it and it didnt ruck up or have any pinch points. Actually very comfortable.
The pad for cycling seemed a lot thinner that my normal cycling shorts, but it has to be to enable it to fill all the roles it needs to.
Does that make it less comfy on the bike......Yes, but not much difference over an hours ride.
Have not run in it yet, but padding is not cumbersome, so do not see it being a problem.
Would I buy another...yes when this wears out.

too big

PostedOctober 31, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
To be honest I haven't really worn this as it is too big! Not massively, but just not as snug as I'd hoped for a tri-suit. Seems like PI make 'em slightly bigger sizes than others (e.g. MoreMile)

A "pearl" of a find at a great price

PostedSeptember 19, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, makes me look like a brownlee
Cons: tiny pocket
Bought half-price in the end-of-season sale. Evans were fantastic, as usual. Sent me the wrong size in error. The staff in my local branch managed to locate my size elsewhere AND refunded the difference between the price I paid and the final reduction price.
As for the suit. Can't comment on swimming yet.
Very comfortable for cycling. Much better than my current cycle-only cheap bibs and shorts. As a previous member of the "all wispy bits of lycra are the same" club, I'm a convert to the "you really do get what you pay for".
Running-wise, the pad is well out of the way and there are no noticeable restrictions in any part of the suit. The cut is perfect for my frame.
It was, however, a short run. Ask me again when I finish an Ironman. ;-)
Very much Recommended, even if you just used it just for cycling or running.
One minor point, the pocket is tiny and not suitable for those who prefer to carry real food over sports gloops, pills and potions. However at this price, you usually don't get a suit, let alone a nice fitting one with a pocket.

Bang for Bucks

PostedAugust 21, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: rear pocket size too small, rubber zipper pull tab
First Look : A decent looking tri suit, impress with the quality of the zip (YKK) and this one looks like its going to last. However the Zip pull are of rubberish logo emboss and only time will tell how long it will last after multiple wash and dry in the sun. The chamois looks thin but feel plush. Rear envelope pocket is small but good enough for (1) a powerbar.
After 55KM Ride: First thing, i'm totally surprise that my butt still feel fresh. Frankly, before the ride i was still doubtful of the thin chamois. The compression is good. The silicon leg gripper does its job and at no point in the ride that the legging are creeping up. Moisture transfer is good too and the suit doesn't even feel wet although i'm riding at 32 deg (C)
Conclusion: A very well make product. I especially like the compression & moisture transfer of the material. Chamois at 55km still feel good but can't comment on further distance as i have yet to try it on a long ride. Overall a good product at this price range.
