  • In fairness, it is designed for bikepacking and therefore needs to pack down pretty small. There's always going to be thicker and warmer but that's not the point of it.

  • Absolutely, was just surprised how cheap/poor quality it looked and felt for north of £200.

  • I'd probably just go to decathlon too tbf. Not that I buy down but that's another conversation

  • Cant see any photos of the Rapha Explore packed in its stuff sack, which is weird, so not sure how small it packs. Maybe there is and ive missed it.

    Just picked up a Rab Microlite Alpine (£170) with an eye on touring and it is silly warm for the size of it. Feels lovely, looks great. It does pack up small but not an insignificant size, worth it for the versatility, I reckon.

  • not sure how small it packs

    Pretty teeny. Not quite as small as my Haglofs LIM Essen jacket, but still pretty compact.

  • The Fjern Aktiv jackets on SportPursuit are worth a look

  • can't say how well it compares but the uniqlo down jackets are great for packsize/price

  • just got a 10% off code if anyone wants, pm me.

  • Pinged you a message

  • What is the returns period for in-store purchases?

    Edit - same as online, 90 days

  • Can anyone working for Rapha get me some off cuts of material to repair my cargo tights? :-(

  • When will a Shakedry gilet come out?

  • Nothing serious I hope!

  • Nope, pretty mild. Rear wheel went on a muddy lane. Having been convinced I was going to fall off on a rather silly climb!!

  • Ouch. The bike slipping out from under me sticks with you for a while - never gotten back to fast cornering. Hope the next few days are alight!

    Isn't this quite literally what the repair service thing is for?

  • Ha or in my case slow cornering
