I like the panels and they work really well, I've ridden in some pretty cold weather with it. What colour though? I have the navy blue one from a year or two ago and the panels are quite subtle. Maybe they're shinier on the current ones.

And yeah, my other half loves it, always says how nice it is. She want a women's version.

Team sky element crow barred in nicely, that should sell a few to the fatty fan base. I hope they did a second run on the XL+ sizes.

I hope they have it in store as I am too tight to pay £4 shipping. I might get a cab over there after work to see.

Actually - if you like at the outline it looks like they have used the right shape, but removed the red touches for colour reasons.

What T-V says.. It's right lion but no red.. Like a lot of Flanders stuff. Doubt Rapha would make such a massive error with such an icon..

Of course there is alway the chance that they produced less XL. Hence it selling out first.

Depending on what you need Vulpine is on sale at SportPursuit for 40% to 50% off RRP. I think it's <£40 deliveried for a merino top with the £5 off code. It's not race kit but if you need city stuff, at that rate I will give it a try.

Simon Mottram revealed in an interview recently that there would be no more sample sales. At least not in London, I think there may have been sales in Manchester and Berlin since that announcement. There may be discounts via their website (clearance/ promotion on their ‘classic’ range). They also have an online women’s sale every year so if you’re a lady, may be worth keeping an eye out for that, though they have only just had this.

Yeah, it's some Rapha specific kit I'm after and likely to be a fairly hefty (for me) outlay so £5 off codes aren't really going to make a dent. I was hoping for a decent % discount.

I don't really need the stuff until June, so can hang on. Just impatient is all :(

I don't own a softshell, have never purchased a Rapha coat (daddy did) and I just upgraded from a rain coat to an almost brand new hardshell for £40. Winning!

Just because its a softshell doesn't mean it's the same level of quality as a Rapha Softshell.

I know, I was joking. I know Vulpine is good stuff, I just don't get why people discuss discounts and shit for other brands in a thread dedicated to one brand.

Has anyone got the CX Winter Hat? Only came in one size, it's barely big enough & I've got a peahead. In fact, I used to get called Beetlejuice quite often.

Why is my hat so small? How do you big headed folk cope?
Might have to go back, but I've had it all Winter.
