Hi guys, looking for some help regarding budget clothing to do me over the autumn and winter.

I've got a few bits of Planet X clothing which fits me fine (bib-shorts XXL and jerseys XXL)

I'm not your average racing snake, unfortunately!

Things I'm looking for are waterproof bib-shorts (if there is any that work and are worth it) I have some Altura Night Vision bib-tights for when the temp really drops and I don't feel the cold too bad in my legs.

Gilet/Jacket and some overshoes too, ideally wanting two pairs so I can keep a pair at work.

Cheers for any help.


  • All I can say is that I find Nalini to be a very good balance between quality and price. I got most of my gear from PBK, who sometimes have good bargains.

    Have a look in the current sales as more expensive clothing can be bought half price or better if you are lucky.

    My wife got a Gore jacket for £43 which normally retailed for about £130. I am over 6ft6 , 15st7 and tend to buy Gore stuff in the sales as it fits me well and is long enough in the biggest size xxl. Sometimes you just have to try a few to see if you can find a brand that fits you.

    I just got an MT500 jersey/jacket thing. It was perfect for yesterday's ride of mixed weather, including two massive downpours. £28 from Evans, and in XXL.
