Gear that keeps you going out in the winter.

BennyP Wrote:I'd also add from my experience that a decent set of glove liners are really 'handy'. Any glove warm enough in its own right in the coldest parts of winter is usually way too bulky. I have some sealskinz liners which are really sleek and keep your hands warm even if your gloves get soaked through! Smile
Yeah i've got the full on winter Sealskinz gloves and they are as thick as my ski gloves! Will try out the liners this year, but i have two pairs of neoprene gloves i used for kayaking i'll try first. Tried the latex gloves as liners before and my hands got just as cold, ask Nick, Russ and Ade about that, my hands were in agony at Brighton station!

Cover for the rucksack, again a new thing to me this year but it's worked a treat Big Grin no more spaying the mud off the bag, helps keeping things in it dry. Yep one of those things that just make life easier Big Grin
Iv Got this one, and it's tip top <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.evocsports.com/bike/accessories/raincover-sleeve">http://www.evocsports.com/bike/accessor ... ver-sleeve</a><!-- m -->

Oh yeah i know they don't do Evoc, just want a cheap universal one. Really don't know why they don't sell them with covers, seeing that there is a pocket for one on the bottom.

I've seen various people ride with universal ones and it looks like a complete faff - keeps coming off and that.

Having said that I don't know how much the EVOC ones are? The Osprey ones was 14 quid so not much more.

Both the deuter bag and osprey bag I've got came with rain covers, thought it was fairly standard.

I went into Halfords and got the hump...rain cover Wink Looks like it'll do the trick, has some elastic straps that cross the other side so should stay on. Was £16 but said £24 on the hook, don't know if they are reduced or a cock up.

Does seem quiet random on wether the bags come with them. Know some people with the same bag as me got one others that didn't, probable just change it year to year?
If the universal one doesn't work Mr hugger the Evoc one are just £13 most places.
