Product Spotlight: Chamonix Collection Cycling Gear

 

The Chamonix Collection is based out of St. Paul, Minnesota. It is described as, “A collection of affordable performance apparel and gear inspired by the vibrancy and personality of Chamonix, France.” They specialize in snowboards, snowboard apparel, and winter cycling apparel.  I recently received two pieces of  Chamonix Collection winter cycling-specific apparel.

Riding in the Seely 3L Jacket

The first piece is the Seeley 3L Jacket. The jacket comes in three color options: blue, red, or black. My large Seeley 3L Jacket for this test is blue. The jacket is a three-layer, lightweight waterproof shell. It’s specifications are as follows:

  • 100% polyester 75D with stretch
  • Adjustable hood that folds up and stores under collar
  • 15,000mm Waterproof/10,000g Breathable
  • Fully taped seams
  • Two front hand-warmer pockets
  • Ventilation zippers
  • Adjustable Velcro cuffs
  • Wrist gaiters with thumbholes
  • Two interior goggle pockets
  • Small interior ID pocket
  • Adjustable drawcord waist
  • Waterproof zippers

Seeley 3L Jacket

This jacket integrates SHIELDTEX, a membrane technology that keeps water and wind out while evaporating moisture. It is permeable and breathable. This technology is most efficient with higher activity levels.  I look forward to testing this shell on snowy training rides through the Big Holes this winter.

The Chamonix Collection Seeley 3L Jacket retails directly from chamonixcollection.com at $299.95.

The second item from the Chamonix Collection that I will be testing are the Esker Bike Bibs. I will be testing a size medium in this essential winter outer layer. Snow gaiters prevent snow and water from getting up your leg.
Their are bottom leg zippers and also a mesh back pocket that can easily hold snacks or your phone.

Here are the specifications of the Esker Bike Bibs:

  • 100% polyester 75D with stretch
  • 15,000mm Waterproof / 10,000g Breathability

    Esker Bike Bibs

  • Fully taped seams
  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Front zipper with storm front fly
  • Side hand pockets
  • Three-pocket mesh pouch on back side
  • Ventilation zippers on outer leg
  • Leg zippers in bottom leg for expansion
  • Snow gaiters with gripper tape and snap closures
  • Instep patches for reinforcement
  • Waterproof zippers

The Esker Bike Bibs retail at $299.

I look forward to getting out in the snow, with both the Esker Bike Bibs and Seeley 3L Jacket,  on my Why Cycles Big Iron. I am sure they will come in handy during Jay P’s Fat Pursuit this January.
