Nike Pro Combat Shield Mock 1.2 shirt review

This technical base layer from Nike makes training through the cold winter months slightly more bearable. It's made from a soft, fleecy material that traps warm air, while Nike's sweat-wicking Dri-Fit fabric and ventilation panels on the sides and back help prevent overheating. Even so, it's best saved for the chilliest of days when the temperature drops below 10°C.

The panels are shaped to stay tight on your body without constricting your movements, and flat stitching prevents any chafing. It has the pleasing side-effect of making you look more toned than usual, although be warned that your family and friends may tease you for dressing like Tiger Woods. Thankfully, if you don't like red there are several other colour options to choose from on the Nike website.

Timbuk2 Light Bright Messenger Bag review

Timbuk2 are the original San Francisco messenger bag brand, are still at the top of their game and this latest offering is no exception. The new Light Bright bag gets a big ultra reflective red stripe on its waterproof nylon body for increased commuting visibility. The big gusseted flap will shrug off storms and drizzle alike.

It'll swallow a vast amount of gear in the big 30x25x15cm central section, with laptop divider, while the vast array of internal apron pockets, wallet-style card slots and multiple zipped front pockets will keep the most neurotic compartmentalist happy. The side zipped stash is super useful for whipping out keys/wallet/cash without unstrapping the whole bag, but there's a quick-release buckle on the long main strap so you don't have to readjust it every time you use it.

Padded shoulder strap, optional side strap to stop it swinging round when you're giving it beans and a stiff LED light loop complete the standard spec but there's also a full custom colour and feature option on the Timbuk2 site.
