Pirate kit order 2017

Well folks, it's finally happening: our first group kit order from the new supplier. There's a lot of information to cover here so please forgive us if this post is rather lengthy.

Firstly, there may well be issues brought about by this which provoke discussion (such as the ongoing debate about whether there should be tech t-shirts or not). Whilst dialogue is a good thing, may we please ask that you start a new thread for it rather than posting it on here and cluttering up an already complicated order.

We will ONLY be running this order through the RW forum. No orders will be taken on Facebook as it is not a good platform for finding specific prior posts easily.

We are having to pay for this order in USD so the prices will depend somewhat on the exchange rate at the time. We have based the prices shown here on current exchange rates but, should it change A LOT between now and order day, then we may have to ask for a couple of extra quid per order. We would obviously notify everyone of this to give them a chance to change their mind if they so desired.

You have until 30th November to place your order.

You then have until 31st December to pay for it. We know this is unfortunate timing around Christmas but, if we leave it any later, we risk missing the early season races. (You can always ask someone to get it for you as a Christmas present!) We will not chase you for payment. Although we will put out a couple of reminders both on RW and FB, it is YOUR responsibility to get the money to us. If we don't receive it in time your items will be removed from the order.

We will place the order on the 2nd January and it usually takes around 4-6 weeks to receive the goods. We will then post them out as quickly as possible so you should be getting your lovely new pirate kit in time for a fashion show on 1st March at the latest.

Please, please, please check your sizing carefully as the measurements are taken from the clothing itself, NOT YOUR BODY. Read the guidelines on the Nimblewear website as it has essential information about the different fits as well as the size guides. It can be found here:
https://www.nimblewear.com/index.php/Design/SizingCharts.htm

The items we are looking to order are shown in the following table. All except the bottom 5 items are available in Mens or Womens fit and, with the cycle jerseys and jackets, you can also choose Race Cut (snug) or Club Cut (slightly baggier).
This means that when you place an order we will need up to 6 pieces of information: item, standard, mens (M) or womens (W), size, cut and how many.

Because there are so many options available this is looking to be the most complicated kit order yet (and we are new at this) so please help us out by being clear with your choices and understanding of our constraints.

  • Hi Guys
    Great effort sorting this out
    Can I ask a question
    What is the difference between Gold, Silver & Bronze and yes I am going to get a stupid answer from Mr Foo
    Is it just the cut & quality or does it go deeper than that, is the gold, pro level that is only meant for use in a couple of races by which time it will have worn away but gives you fantastic performance in those 2 / 3 races, or are they designed to give a seasons use? is Bronze level suitable for training etc

    Thanks

    SA

  • Hi SA. The cut will be the same across all standards (you can choose between race cut or club cut on the cycle tops). The difference is the fabric itself. If I was getting stuff for JUST training in, I would probably go Bronze as my training sessions are usually short enough not to need anything too fancy. For long races though I would probably go for something a bit higher tech as you want it to be comfy for so much longer. Frank has got a cycle jersey in diamond and it seems to be robust enough. None of the fabrics seem particularly flimsy its just some are more breathable and quicker drying than others. I would be surprised if they didn't last at least a season!
  • All orders so far have been entered into the spreadsheet of delight. Thanks for your quick responses Wobbly and WendyY (we need to get the naming committee on to you though :D don't think you're getting away with it that lightly!) When Wobbly figures out how to change her profile name, maybe she can let you know too ;)

  • What is the difference between Gold, Silver & Bronze and yes I am going to get a stupid answer from Mr Foo


    My work here is done.




  • I think I am going to opt for:

     

    Tri Suit - W - Size L

    This seems to be the closest match to the current LG and Confides ones size wise but its a lot of money to make a guesstimate ...

    Doesn't appear to be a Gold/bronze option unless I misread

  • Meldy, what size LG kit do you wear? as the Nimble wear kit is about the same. IE small males from either company fits me.
    I think MC experience with the tri suit would bear this out.

  • yep... I wear the same size as LG... 

    ps... the quality is really good. I love my tri suit.
    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • :) Hello Duda/Ninja, thanks for sorting!

    Could I please order a Tech T-Shirt Mens Bronze in XL and a Cycling Cap?

    Cheers, Bobs

  • For anyone still wavering about the quality of this kit....  I used my tri suit today for an off road duathlon through heavy rain in a forest, it was an absolute mudfest (bloody good fun mind you!)... suit was caked, and I mean CAKED in mud.... to the point where you couldn't see that it was pirate kit.... after a bucket wash to get loose mud off, its been in the washing machine, and come out like new. IME, only good quality kit can do that. I remain really impressed with it.
    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
