Lots of stuff still to be had in a couple of local ones this evening - not only do we get the best cycling up here, Aldi doesn't sell out first thing!
Spent quite a lot so the Mirror voucher was handy.
One fluoro rain jacket. Slightly lighter material than my old one and the design looks to have been improved in quite a few places - details but it all helps.
Arm warmers in small - way too large. They'll have to go back.
Tool kit - this is certainly not up to the standard of my Ice Toolz/Lifu kit and there is less in it but I'll be keeping it to leave at my parents so I have a few things for the old Raleigh. If you want a starter kit, I'd get one of the slightly more expensive ones.
Storage stand - we'll see how this turns out!
Gloves - these looked pretty decent and there's some positive reviews so I'm giving them a go. They'll probably be the right temp for about 2 weeks of the year but that's down to my cold fingers. It will be interesting to compare them to the Sealskins.
Failed to get the compression base layers. This has happened before - they massively understock on the gents compared to the ladies stuff so there are huge piles of the latter, a fair pile of mens pants and in one shop only 3 xl mens tops. I was half tempted to try a ladies top but I'm a bit flat chested
Faster than a tent.......
