We thought the DHB longs sported a low price, but that was until these Crane Sport samples came through from Aldi Stores. Less than £10 for a pair of longs seems ridiculous; you've got to ask how they make them so cheaply, and why other brands cost so much more.
Especially when they dish up some pretty good performance. The front features a breathable windstopping liner and the inner is brushed for extra warmth. All seams are flat stitched and they even come with a Coolmax chamois. Reflective piping adorns the back and sides and the ankles are both zipped and feature foot loops. The elasticated, drawstring waist is a bit uncomfortable but then you can't have everything for £8. Definitely a good one for the money; the low mark is mainly because you can only buy them twice yearly so contact Aldi for release dates.
