GripGrab are renowned for quality, and the material used here is designed to keep you both warm and dry. The water repellent coating used is environmentally friendly, and uses non PFC products to achieve the repellence. The lycra itself is also top quality 4 way stretch, extremely tough, which ensures that the fit is seamless and tight. I’m actually mega impressed and how things these are for the warmth provided, which I’m sure is down to the tightness of the weave.
Wearing them in the Yorkshire Dales throughout autumn and winter, they’ve been superb, and I’ve watched the rain drops sitting as beads on the cloth before falling away. Length wise they fit above the lower ankle and reach well up into that necessary region beneath the bibs, with the excellent silicon grippers holding them in place. There’s no sag, even on my skinny spindles.
As I said at the beginning then, warmers are an essential item, unless you ride nude, or prefer a rough ride on the butt! These aqua repels from GripGrab should be on all cyclists shopping lists. If they work on my skinny limbs, they’ll fit superbly on you guys.
