When I first discovered my love for cycling there was little out there in the form of women’s specific kit, particularly shorts and tights that were cut for a woman’s shape. As a five foot nine tall woman, with a 33 inch inside leg, I would opt for men’s tights so that I could be sure to get the leg length I needed, but take it from me, there is nothing more uncomfortable than cycling in something where the chamois is bulky and chaffing in the groin area. Ouch!
Who are Fierlan?
That was my experience until I discovered Fierlan. Fierlan is a British women’s cycling apparel brand based in Bristol. They’re quite new to the scene and with lovely flattering designs, that are cool rather than girly and great Italian made quality, they’re really making a name for themselves. (more…)
Ask anyone who sees me out at the moment and they’ll tell you just how often I’m wearing this red Showers Pass Rogue Hoodie, a soft shell jacket which is packed with great little features.
Before I start, you can probably already tell this is going to be a positive review; and then you may well ask why you don’t see many negative reviews on OCG. In case it’s not obvious, the items reviewed on Ordinary Cycling Girl are sent to me by the manufacturer, distributor or PR. I don’t receive payment for writing reviews. The truth is, there’s not a lot of fun in writing negative reviews about products that are far from impressive. I receive quite a lot of clothing for review purposes and in the main, I like much of it. If I do, you’ll find a write up on here telling you exactly why it’s worth spending your hard earned cash on it. It’ll be an honest and unbiased review. If there are any bad points I’ve found I’ll certainly tell you, but if it’s featured on Ordinary Cycling Girl you can be sure that overall I’ve liked it.
So, what’s great about the Showers Pass Rogue Hoodie?
I’ve been wearing this windproof, waterproof jacket for a couple of months now and since Autumn has arrived it’s really come into its own. It’s a multi purpose jacket so it’s rarely been off my back and I’ve been wearing it to anything and everything, not just for cycling. (more…)
