Aldi Special Buys 27/12/09
#1
http://www.aldi.co.uk/uk/html/offers/off...nday09.htm

Actually is a "Skiing" special buys however:

Plenty of thermal gear on offer (including Merino Wool thermals)
An Orgeon helmet cam for £59.99
Protective Glasses for £3.99

(And for those Full Face Helmet wearers and Mega entrants)
Ski type goggles in various lens colours : £8.99

The kit is MUCH better than many expect - and worth a look.

I wore a pair of cyling waterproof trousers from there last night - bloomin excellent! - padded/textured area on the bum, plenty of adjustment in the leg etc.

I got totally wet and muddy - and was nice and dry.

I would couple it with those thermal leggings as I only had shorts underneath and wind-chill wasnt nice.

Ive got a lot of their stuff for biking, and all is very good indeed for the price.

You might call me a snob, but there is no way i would go ski-ing where it is regularly below -10 wearing a "ski" jacket costing only £24, or a pair of boots at £12. I would be a freezing blister'ed mess in no time!

Might go for some base layers for cycling though.

bought the merino base layer feels quite nice, also got the salopettes, I've cut the lining out put draw cords in the bottom now have a good pair of breathable well made waterproofs, alot cheaper than bike specific ones with the added bonus of braces.
