Living a 'Life In The Saddle' involves a huge array of kit. From bikes to bottle cages; panniers to pumps; there is an endless list of products that you might need.

To help you find some of the best cycling and outdoor adventure kit available, these are my reviews and recommendations.

Running Kit Reviews


Kit reviewed on Life In The Saddle has either been purchased, bought at cost price, or some has kindly been donated by brands.

All reviews are honest, detailed and personal; just because a company has provided product, this does not mean it will get a sparkling review. Rather, if a product is not up to the high standard promoted through the site, a bad review would not be published, but rather feedback to the brand would be provided, to try and help them improve their product. Therefore, all the reviews found on Life In The Saddle are of products believed to be great pieces of cycling kit.

Star ratings are not used for reviews, as different people value different qualities of a product differently; therefore, it seems wrong to try and rank a product against others with such personal objectives.
