This breathable and waterproof jacket is great as a basic shell to keep the rain out. It has good ventilation on the back as well as zippered pits. The hood has a stiff brim to keep the rain out and can fit over a helmet or be cinched down if needed. An upper chest pocket keeps my cell phone nice and dry while gloves or snacks fit in the zippered side pockets. Adjustable wrist bands and waist keep the jacket in place during the ride. Reflective logos keep it visible in low light. I tried a Medium, but would appreciate more room that a large would have given me, the shoulders were a bit tight when hanging onto the handle bars.

Two words: Great Shorts! They are extremely comfortable and feature two back Velcro pockets, a small right thigh zippered pocket that was great for my phone as well as a left leg ID/Credit Card holder. Inner thigh ventilation helps for when it gets warm out.

I also got a medium in the shorts but they seemed a little big, the Velcro tabs on the hips were pulled tight and then stick out. A belt helps to cover the flapping tabs. I'd probably opt for a small in these babies next time.

Now this is a "flannel" I can sweat in! And not because it's hot and itchy, quite the opposite! I say "flannel" because this long sleeve cycling jersey is made out of 100% woven quick-dry polyester. It's very breathable so that during or after my ride, it is still comfortable to hang out at the brewery at. It's also super cute and a great addition to the fall wardrobe, shredding or schmoozing! When I did wear it riding, I loved the fact that if I did have a lighter weight shirt on underneath, it was very easy to take off because of the full button up feature, not an over-the-helmet move. The shirt is also very packable. My only negative feedback is, like the Shield Jacket, that is was a little tight in the shoulders when extending my arms all the way in front of me. Stretch it much farther and I feel the seems would tear. I tried to stay true to size with all garments, I'm a medium but all three fit differently.

Great mountain biking product from Dakine! I'd switch up the sizes a bit, large for the shell, small for the shorts but I'd probably stick with a medium for the shirt.
