I have used their stuff for a while.

Jackets and tops are brilliant.

Just got the "premium" front light for 8.99, very bright and easy to take on and off. Hasn't got a flash setting but has low, medium and high beam. Brightest is probably good enough for pitch black riding bit haven't tested in the dark yet. Usb charge slot is mini sd but the rubber cover doesn't seem watertight.

Also got the twin pack of mini lights for 3 ponds, ok for extra side lights but obviously not for use as main ones.

Bit late, but... a cheap T6 (don't go for the zoom) torch from ebay will probably make their 'premium' light look like a dashboard back-light in comparison!

About 13 will get you a head torch with recharable batteries, charger and a nice rear-red illuminated section too.

Their cycling gloves were ok but didn't last too well - same with their motorbikes gloves in my experience.

Oh thanks anyway, seems to be fine for my needs at the moment, my commute is all lit anyway (or at leats the dangerous bits) so "be seen" lights will suffice. I have a good flashing red one on my rear end as well

Something like this? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2200LM-CREE-XML-T6-LED-Flashlight-Torch-Cycling-Bicycle-Bike-Light-Lamp-2x-18650-/201409999210?hash=item2ee4f8b16a

Struggling to find a non zoom to suit

Zoom's are ok, but don't tend to be as bright and have a linear beam pattern - the bright hot spot in the middle of the normal ones works well for the road (so bright further away, where you'd want it.)

If you want something for the bars and don't mind spending a bit extra, this will be *really* bright!

As a head torch, the single LED version of this is actually better, but unfortunately seems to be in short supply at the moment - usually costs a similar amount ...

Ah, here we go... I don't know about this specific copy, but looks the same as my 'boruit' branded one which wroks nicely.
My one came with a bar mount too, but this doesn't seem to.

Old Thread Alert!
