Winter Mountain Bike Jackets for the UK

So every year I go out and buy a new winter MTB jacket and I never spend more than £50 and every year I find a new flaw in the jacket.


  • The seams aren't watertight
  • The arms are too tight
  • It looks like an acid house reject
  • It rubs on the neck
  • Water drips down my back and soaks my ass
This year thanks to reading the guide from my mates at WideopenMag to the Best Mountain Bike Waterproof Jackets under £100 I am going to buy this bad boy from Altura.

It's called the Altura Mayhem and should cost more than £35.  Anyone care to place a bet now on what is going to go wrong with this one.  Surely my luck is about to change.

Best Budget Mountian bike socks for the winter.

I am getting a little tired of being massively overcharged for MTB gear.  It's not that I can't afford new kit (although I can't) it's jsut that if you ad the word cycling in front of anything it seems to cost twice as much.


I have decided to buck the trend and try to buy as much gear as I can for my bike from non cycling sources.

For example the best budget mountian bike socks that I own come from Mountain Warehouse.  If you knwo of any other great deals then drop me a line #sharing is caring.
