A bargain Biemme jacket? Does it compare to Gore Phantom II?

Can't really much in the way of reviews about it, though some general reviews on the make seem to be positive.

Anyone own one??

If so, how does the sizing work for you?

Adidas seem to be frequent offenders also :twisted:

    I haven't got this jacket but I've got the 'Activitude' bib tights plus other Biemme clothing that I buy in France. It's all well made and I love the bib tights.

    Thanks Aggie,

    are they a French company then??

    Does anyone own one on here, i expect not as a search turned up nothing, but worth an ask!

    I have just ordered a Gore Phantom from Wiggle, and am just wondering if this would be a better, or as good as, and significantly cheaper (despite the £20 voucher saving at wiggle) option.

    According to the sizing the medium would suit me fine.

    Cheers

    They're Italian. Significantly cheaper in France before the Euro went t*ts up. :cry:

    Surely it's the pound that's gone t*ts up.
