Best known for its wild designs, Sydney based Attaquer has come a long way since its introduction in 2012.As part of its latest release, the Aussie brand sent over the All Day Kit for me to try. This long sleeve lightweight summer cycling jersey offers essential sun protection for extreme summer conditions, while still keeping you cool.

The bibshort is also from the All day collection and one of Attaquers most comfortable and popular shorts.Focused on comfort and support, it’s cycling apparel that will keep you riding longer and further.The first thing I notice is how well everything fits and how super soft the fabrics feels. Comfort is definitely key here.

The jersey is definitely a pro-cut jersey and if you’re not a pro-build, my advice is to take a close look at the size chart. The size large is a snug fit but I could have sized down as well, a medium would have been the perfect fit, my personal preference is a tighter fitting kit. The bib fits true size and also came in a size large. It features a pro cut and the legs are cut quite long. Something to keep in mind for short legged people. The shorts are really well made, with 4-stitch flatlock stitching creating a comfortable and durable construction. It also comes with an internal pocket, a nice little feature to have, but I don’t see myself using it.
