SocksInner Layerjacketgloveshatand reflectiive stuff
the flishy flashy lights (that's the technical term, commonly called reflective strips) are fabulous - anyone who tries to squish you with their car can't use the excuse that they didn't see you
Yes I have bought quite a bit over the years.
My local store - Swindon is quite large and has a decent supply.
You even find ebayers reselling it as fantastic value for money.
I have my girlfriend on 'standby' to go grab me some of this on Thursday.... of course, not expecting top-of-the-heap quality but should be good enough to keep me through the colder days coming up...ive been using sky-running socks lately & found them rubbish. My £1 a pair Asda ergonomics were more comfy & didn't leave me with 'black nail' on my middle toe.
Used loads of this stuff for running / skiing / mountain biking. It is not as good as the top line stuff from other folks but is not the same price, it certainly compares well with all the mid range/priced stuff and is sometimes better.
The sizing can be a bit odd so size it up to yourself rather than just thinking you take a medium so aldis medium will be the same.
Colours can appear to have been designed by a man down a coal mine with the lights out. Fit (once you work out the right size) is good, you will always be able to spot the other aldi shoppers at a race. But its a bit ireelevant by the time you have biked or ran through all the mud in the local woods
If anything its too durable and lasts for ages,
It always does the job its designed for - I used the skiing stuff in - 30 in Norway and was not cold even on the lifts.
Have used the lidl stuff & its much the same standard
I dont have an Aldi near me of any size (it just stocks food etc)
It appears that these items aren't available online either ?
Just had a look at the Aldi website................ sod the running gear, i'm gonna buy some of them fireworks to annoy the neighbours
I am now the proud owner of some 'flishy flashy lights' two sets - one for me one for the dog (he sulks if he gets left out). Also brought a couple of long sleeve tops and some of the running tights.
I was the only person in Aldi at Swanley.
The local Aldi was unusually quiet today. Normally there are a handful of hardy runners there at 9:00 making a beeway for the running gear. Today there was me and one older guy - who only seemed to be interested in buying a pair of socks. Managed to get some new leggings and a couple of long sleeved tops, as well as some socks to replace the pair from last year that has a hole in the toe.
Plenty of the smaller items left, although as usual not a large quantity of the more expensive items of clothing (but still cheaper than the big names)
oh dear I only went to get some gloves ~ came out with new long top, cloves, hat thing and an underneath layer set thing.
actually I really really don't need the hat.
Does anyone want a S/M ladies winter running hat with reflective bits?
