Keeping up our fitness in the winter months is always a challenge, and we all get annoyed with the weather when it stops us getting on 2 wheels. When we can get out the main challenge is keeping warm enough. A few of us were lucky enough to try out and review some clothing from Trespass which helps keep us warm until we get to our favourtie cafe stop!

Persin Womens long sleeve active top
Most of my cycing gear is blue and or black so this would not have been an item I would have chosen for myself. That said I was pleasantly suprised as it was very comfortable to wear with a nice thickness to the material without being too warm. The half zip is ok but would have prefered a full zip ( but that is just my personal preference and in no way affects the product).
I like the quality of the product but would love to see this in a Black with Light blue version. I think our Yorkshire Lasses would all be buying these if they had our club colours on for sure! Great reflective touches to the top all in all a very nice top ideal for cycling. I will also wear this for walking which I also do a lot of!
Love this top pink is my favourite colour its also a good colour if running or riding at night nice and bright.
This fluorescent look is brilliant, especially when winter riding. This top is very comfortable to wear, whilst being a nice fit not too snug. I have also run in the top, I find it helps me maintain an even body temperature whether I am riding my bike or running. I have used it as a base layer or on its own. Very useful that it has a back pocket to store phones etc. Washes well and drys quickly.
Not being a pink person, my personal preference for this top would be in black. Having experienced the bright and effective reflective material on this top, I can definitely see the benefits of a more fluorescent look, especially with winter riding. This top is very comfortable to wear, whilst being flattering at the same time. I tend to get hot whilst riding my bike, but found this to be the right level of insulation underneath my jacket, and have also used it to have in the car after a long cold ride as a warm top to drive home in. Being slightly shorter than most I also liked the length of the sleeves (for once not too long) and the finish around the cuff was really comfortable and didn’t get in the way when wearing my cycling gloves. I would also consider using this top for other sports with its quick dry qualities and mesh panel to the back it would suit many sports, and is a really useful top to go to and from the gym in as well!
Highlighted High Vis Jacket - Packaway
This product is fab and deos just what it says on the tin, Waterproof, breathable and windproof which is great as an all rounder. Easy to pack away and keep in the back pockets of my cycling top!
Great high vis which is a must when out in reduced light, equally as good as any of the leading cycling brands packaway jackets. Again pink is not my thing generally so would be nice in black or blue but this is again personal preference.
Great elastication around the waist and a good full zip. The pocket on the back is a great addition.
This jacket is really comfortable to wear, it also folds up quite neatly so it will stow away in your back pocket within its own little pocket, so you can easily access it whilst on your bike or running. The jacket is not fully waterproof but OK for light showers. It is fantastic for keeping the chill off when its windy, also used it for cafe stops in our so called English summer, useful as another layer and light to carry. The jacket is a perfect cut and design. I am a size 12 and the jacket fit lovely whilst keeping my back covered and not catching on my saddle on the bike.
Emelia Womens long sleeve active top
This top is really comfortable to wear, the soft fleece lining makes the top warm, but is not too heavy thus aiding in freedom of movement whilst participating in sport. It is a really useful layer that has wicking properties so keeps you warm and is practical too. I have worn this as the weather has got colder on my bike. When the temperature drops its important to keep warmth in around your neck and also acts as an effective extra layer on the arms. I know I will also be using this top when I go snowboarding as it’s the perfect layer for under my ski jacket – wont need too many layers just this top!
