Think I'm going to give it a whizz namely the
Alpine Thermal RT Tights
https://www.pactimo.co.uk/collections/w ... hts-mens-1
or 3/4s

Alpine Thermal RT Jersey
https://www.pactimo.co.uk/collections/w ... 5672054918
Anyone got any experience of these items or Pactimo in general ?
How is the fit (being American !) compared to the usual brands ?
Thinking of medium or Large in the tights (only M left) or 3/4s as that's what I am in Assos 3/4s as I prefer them a bit small than a bit big.
Jersey I'm hoping a medium will be ok too.
Any opinions appreciated.
Thanks

    Thanks Dave
    Sounds as if they are little generous (L is a 40" on their size guide) so a Medium Long sleeve should be fine for me.
    Cheers

    I've got the Summit Raptor bibs which are excellent (FYI I got size M at 193cm, 77kg, 81cm waist). I've found them to be very helpful regarding sizing enquiries if you drop them an email.

    I don't have any of the items you have listed but have lots of other Pactimo gear and I think it's excellent. Recently sent back an item under their life time warranty and the customer service was exceptional.
    I am a skinny 6ft 3 with a 37" chest and all my jackets and jerseys with them are Medium. I have mainly gone large in bib shorts though.

    Thanks
    General consensus seems to be they aren't silly sized cycling gear so I think I'll happily order Mediums all round.

    Pactimo is good stuff - we only have their custom (club) kit here, so I don't know anything about the general stock stuff, or even if it is different. Happy with the quality though, although it ain't cheap.

    Worth scouting round for discount codes. Usually at least 20% off available, although they seem to have changed the 30% off brand ambassador codes.

    PRC40 is the code at the moment for 40% off hence my interest !

    I have lots of Pactimo stuff and find it top quality . I am 6ft 2in and 82kg and always order size L for bib shorts but XL for jerseys and jackets and they fit great.
    Just wish they offered all the range on the UK site that is available on the US site. Apparently the UK range will be extended soon.

    Can you use the discount codes on sale items?
  • mrb123mrb123 Posts: 3,101
    You can't use codes against the outlet stuff. Not sure about standard sale items. If you put the item you want in your basket you can try the code before you have to enter any payment details.
  • Hello

    The PRC40 code does not seem to apply any more? Any other codes available please?

    Yeah, there's currently 31% off everything for Halloween apparently, details on the website.
