Who else LOVES their PdC gear?

Although I received my stuff from Mark last week, work and my existing kit rotation kept me from debuting the official PdC bibs and short sleeved jersey until last night. And what a fine night it was. Join me on the other side for the details.


I ordered a large in both, and to say that they fit like a dream is an understatement. The shorts are fantastic - snug but not too snug, really comfortable chamois straight out of the box, sleek look. Everything you could want in a racing short. The jersey is also very comfy - it looks and feels race cut, but with enough room to slip a wicking t-shirt under without getting all bunched up or overstuffed. Capo material is imo very good. My current team kit is also made by them and I love it.

I didn't have a full appreciation of the graphics until I put everything on and took a look in the mirror. I love the Hoste emblem on opposite shoulder and leg, which works well for my spacial equality disorder and guarantees that I don't tilt over to one side or the other. I really like the two tone colors and actually now believe gray, black, orange, and white can not only coexist together but actually look spectacular. The podiumcafe.com on the rear bumper is the icing on the cake - it gave the two guys I caught and dropped on last night's outing something to read and wonder about for the 2 miles we were together. If they're reading this now I'll be riding the same route next week, same Bat time, same Bat channel.

Did the new kit give me wings like the Maillot Jaune supposedly does? I can't say. But what I can say is if you have the means when the next order goes out, I highly recommend picking one up. They're so choice.
