I recently received a winter cycling clothing package from Souke Sports that included gloves, a vest, a jacket, and long bib shorts. The package arrived quickly and in great condition. Opening the packages was a real pleasure as you could immediately feel that this are quality products.
The gloves were my first item to try on, and I was impressed with the quality of them. They fit snugly (but not too tight) and were easy to move in. The fingers are touchscreen enabled and the glove itself has some reflective straps. The stretched cuffs is very comfortable and is keeping the wind out of your glove. Overall the gloves are keeping my hands warm in conditions are 5 degrees Celsius.
Next, I tried on the vest and jacket. The vest is a beautiful orange color and fits comfortably over my cycling jacket. It provides an extra layer of warmth without being too bulky. The vest is lightweight, windproof and is available in multiple colors. The only downside is that the vest is not waterproof which for the Dutch winters is something to be aware. Other than that this vest is a good investment, also for running!
The jacket is a maroon color and is perfect for autumn proof and a little light Dutch winters. It kept me warm during my rides without causing me to overheat. The fleece inside feels very comfortable and the fabric is stretching in the right places. Also here I do have to make the comment that waterproof would be preferred but when it’s dry the jacket keep you warm from 8 degrees Celsius upwards.
Lastly, I tried on the long bib shorts. The padding is comfortable, but not too thick. They fit well and kept me comfortable during my rides. The only downside also here is that they are not waterproof, so they may not be ideal for extremely wet weather. A positive experience though is the stitching. This is placed on the correct spots so that they will not start to irritate you during longer rides.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the set. These winter cycling clothes are perfect for autumn proof and a little light dry Dutch winters. I highly recommend them to any cyclist looking for comfortable and warm clothing options.
