The winter jackets look like a great deal. and the storage rack would be handy.

I just don't think they are as good value nowadays - I have bought stuff in the past and been pleased with it but the recent stuff is more expensive and not as good quality/fit.
As far as the jackets go - bob over to Ribble Cycles and you can buy an Altura Night vision jacket for £32, available in all sizes. Only £12 more for a proven good buy.
So shop around folks!

Popped into Aldi on way to work but wasn't impressed with the winter jackets as they seemed a bit cheaply made and didn't seem very good quality

i sent the wife in this morning and she picked up the arm warmers ,leg warmers and the over boots all seem reasonble quality. I know the over boots only last one winter but i paid twice as much last year for another well known make and they didnt didnt last any longer.

Cheers Tony

Got some gloves, socks, shoes, winter tights and a base layer. Gloves are pretty good though the styling is somewhat dated. Socks are a bargain and a half. The shoes are fine, fairly stiff and the fit is generous enough for a winter sock which I want to use them for, still untested though. I intend to tape up the toe box mesh and have them permanetly in a set of overshoes. The tights are a funny size, be aware of this if your thinking of them. And the base layers are always a good buy, as good as items 3 times the price IMO.
