1.0 out of 5 stars Have u ever heard of the policy of truth?, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not lying is NOT the same as telling the truth, dear Amazon.
That said I believe it's about time someone warned the possible future buyers that this is a hugely overpiced PLASTIC wallet. Ok, it was never claimed to be genuine leather or croco, but considering the money paid, one does certainly not expect it to be SO PLASTIC. U can find it for 5-10 GBP on retail. Only reason it's not going back is it's necessary right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me warm and safe during winter longruns!, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No doubt, one of the best pieces of sports clothing I ever bought & 4 a dream price too (less than 35 £)!
Salomon is one of the most respected sports brand, when it comes 2 value 4 price, judging by my own experience & assessment.
This particular jacket has it all:
- It's a "hi-tec" item, a completely windproof softshell, softly textured but extremely rugged at the same time.
- Thumbholes, 2 side and 1 chest pocket, side and back logo reflectors, chin guard, elasticated hem, fleece-lined around neck, perspirant, do u really need more information?
- Sizing is spot on: M (my usual size) fits great.
- It's the perfect sports midlayer or running-trekking-climbing jacket, take my word 4 it!!!


Timberland Men's FCA Sport Low GTX Tan Fashion Trainer 57123 7.5 UK
Timberland Men's FCA Sport Low GTX Tan Fashion Trainer 57123 7.5 UK

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic price 4 a 3 season Gore-tex Timberland!!!, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I couldn't really believe I was buying the shoes 4 the price displayed!
The shoes aren't only perfectly designed and technical (gore tex makes the pair waterproof and transpiring) but rugged and goodlooking as well. The shoes will help u through casual styling or everyday outdoor walks. Not suitable 4 serious trekking activities though, as they do come quite heavy.
Also, go a size up, they do come quite narrow.

2.0 out of 5 stars As technical as it may be, it's a see-through item!, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had to send it back actually. I already own it's "dark turf" coloured version, thought white would only differ in colour, was wrong! It's like a whole different shirt, the chest stripe, the fabric feeling, but most of all the texture: it's see trough, wich can really be a problem during sweaty or water activities.


Salomon Whisper Midlayer Women's Hoody - Hot Pink, Medium
Salomon Whisper Midlayer Women's Hoody - Hot Pink, Medium
Price: £58.12

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome sports hoody, awesome price!, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a multipurpose gym midlayer - jacket. I never thought I would find such a technical Salomon hoody 4 a price like that!
Here come the details:
- Warm & Soft,
- Excellent fitting
- Technical & ergonomic: sligtly stretchy, with side pockets, ponytail hole at the back of the hood, elasticated cuffs, securely zipping around the neck (very useful after sweaty workouts).
- Very beautiful and stylish also! Hotpink looks very youthlike while the chest string contrast detail and upperarm Salomon logo details complete the image.
Once more: a great value 4 money item!


Regatta Men's Tobias B/W Gilet - Oxford Blue, Small
Regatta Men's Tobias B/W Gilet - Oxford Blue, Small
Offered by kraxel Handels GmbH
Price: £24.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A great value 4 price fleece vest., 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let's look at the facts: why pay more than 20 £ for a casual fleece vest, when Regatta offers the whole pack 4 only half the price?
I can assure u it's a completely honest value 4 money deal:
- Warm and versatile (can either work as a midlayer or an outerwear, depending on the temperature and your needs)
- Very easy to pack, doesn't take much space.
- Great colour, stylish logo on chest.
- Little bit oversized, especially around the armpits, strongly suggest u go a size down.
Summing up, unless u need a really hi-tech, "serious outdoor activities", membrane treated, moneyvore, type of vest, save yourself the cash and go 4 it!

Seriously now, there's no reason whatsoever to give a full review on this one. The above title speaks 4 itself. Suunto leather straps wear out & if u wanna replace 'em u either pay double price in retail or u go right ahead and buy this one 4 half price, it's that simple actually!


Lafuma Women's LD Wardi TRL Active Softshell Windstopper - Black/Noir, Medium
Lafuma Women's LD Wardi TRL Active Softshell Windstopper - Black/Noir, Medium

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money item!, 21 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my wife, as a technical jacket to wear during workout and aerobics and outdoor activities. Proved to be an excellent choice!
What u see in the amazon display is exactly what u get, very true to size (the definition of M), warm, very efficient windstopper (signed by Gore!), fits great onto the body, thin enough to work as a second layer and finally a very attractive and stylish athletic jacket.
Thumbholes, air meshes (2 zippered side pockets work that way), longer rear side to windproof the waist, discrete silver Lafuma logo & trade mark (leaf sign) that work as reflectors complete the puzzle.
Really glad I bought it!


Asics Men's Trail Long Sleeve 1/2 Zip Top - Dark Teal/Raven/Sulphur Spring, Medium
Asics Men's Trail Long Sleeve 1/2 Zip Top - Dark Teal/Raven/Sulphur Spring, Medium

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi-tech Asics running apparell 4 an amazing price!, 2 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have been using it for quite a few months now, during fall and winter. I deliberately waited so much before reviewing it as it's suppposed 2 be a technical item and wanted to test it under the exact conditions I bought it 4.
So guys, if u hit the trail more than 4 hours / week despite the weather conditions then u should def buy that top, it's really a MUST HAVE HI-TECH item. Where do I begin?
- Very true 2 size if u r a fit runner, I normally wear M and fitted like a glove.
- Feels SMOOTH ("clean shaven" really describes the texture's feeling), no chaffing under any circumastances whatsoever, very important for longruns and races.
- Superior windbreaker at the front and back while both sides (starting from the wrist and all the way down to the waist) are a huge air mesh panel removing sweat and excess body heat away. The definition of BREATHABLE!
- Your neck is completely protected while the 1/2 zip makes the top vesratile on warmer conditions.
- Water repellent.
- Thumbholes keep your hands protected and sleeves in their place, also very important during longruns and races.
- Plenty of room for gels, beanies, extra water, gloves, keys, extra pair o socks, u name it ... on both side pockets.
- Anti-slip rubber grippers on shoulders keep backpack or Camelbak in place without effort. Mountain runners and backpacers really need this.
- Fluo details (sulphur spring colour and brand name) keep u visible.
- If u r a loner and used to music, u'll love the mp3 pocket on the shoulder.
Only 1 small correction to Amazon's presentation though, quite insignificant in my oppinion. Amazon says: "Gain storage with a lower side zip pocket and side envelope pockets". Totally agree with the side pockets but THERE IS NO LOWER SIDE ZIP POCKET! Perhaps the Asics trail jacket has one and they just copied the text from there.
A piece of advice: follow the washing instructions faithfully, better hand wash with very mild detergent in lukewarm water, it will keep like brand new 4 lots and lots of kms.
What more can i say to get u trail runners to buy it? I only wish I could give it 6 stars!

Absolutely necessary in the winter time. Fitted perfectly on my OPEL Astra, high quality rubber does the job.
I will update this review after the summer season.
