The aldi stuff is better than you'd expect for the price.

It will fall apart eventually but the 'cost per wear' is hard to beat.

Most of my favourite kit is Lidl or Aldi. Between the two, I tend to prefer Lidl since I've found Aldi's kit to be generally thicker/warmer and more expensive.

Mave: I find Aldi's sizing quite small, so try things on if you can.

went to Aldi, bought loads! jackets 'n' tops 'n' winterstuff. everythign was fab - they are stresing that their running kit zips are YKK so perhaps zips were an issue before? I am a size 16 in normal stuff and the women's large all fitted fine, only thing that didn't fit was socks (I am a 4 and the 4-7 were hooooge).

Thanks bigleggy :-)

Well, I say it doesn't hurt. I've just been out in a vest (and shorts, socks and shoes) and got soaked. It was very exhilarating running in the rain - but I did get sore nips. I then forgot about the nips after the shower and sprayed the deodorant all over - OUCH!!!
