Okay were to start. I have been riding and racing my bike for well over 30 years and worn all sorts of different brands over the years including rapha assos castelli etc. For me this is the best kit i have ever worn i have the bib shorts, jersey, gillet and socks i bought during the first few weeks of lockdown as i wanted to support a smaller brand, i made the correct decision choosing BoC as it fantastic it fits well and really comfortable quite simply put its the best kit i have ever had and i would say its the best kit available bib shorts are a must as is the gillet. brilliant kit!
Nice looking for riding in cold weather
Bought the arm warmers to replace an Endura pair I've had forever and thought it would be as well purchasing the leg warmers too. Both arm and leg warmers look great, quality of manufacture is high as I'd expect, and they are extremely good at keeping arms and legs cold on wet days. Not had them in in the rain so not sure if they'd wick away showers yet but they do feel more fabric like than the Endura ones so I suspect not however it might not be the intention that they do so either, I'd be guessing.
Only reason I have marked these down to a 4 star is I find the fit on the arms a little baggy around the elbow. Regarding sizing I went for the medium which is a size down from the jerseys I've bought but I don't consider my legs of arms to be particularly long so seemed correct, I'm 5'10 for reference.
Leg warmers are fine and once you position the label so it's not rubbing in skin (or maybe removing it is the answer?) they're a 5 star product.
The arm warmers seem fine length wise when putting them on, nice big gripper at the top which seemed to stay in place the full ride, I don't think they slipped while riding, however when on the bike I was aware of excess material bunching at the elbow. It didn't seem to affect the performance, it was more an aesthetic but it was distracting enough for me to mark the arm warmers down a star. I am maybe being harsh and they do this by design, I just felt they weren't as good a fit as the other items I'd purchased by BoC or as my previous arm warmers I'm replacing.
Brought the bundle but yet to wear the Leg Warmers - However, the Arm Warmers are great! Not too bulky so fit easily in the back pocket of my jersey.
They don't bunch up or slip during a ride which I've found with other arm warmers
The embroidered logos are excellent - nice to show of the BOC brand!
Medium leg warmers are brilliant and fit perfectly, but the medium arm warmers are falling down and bunching behind the elbows.
Really warm and love how the leg warmers logos are high enough so not impeded by overshoes.
