    Was wondering that myself but thinking it would be a lot of pushing the bike.

    Not sure how packed down it is, but early morning before it warms up would be the way to go for sure.

    They have a chocolate lab in a helmet in the pics... I might order one just because of that.

    It seems neat, I have to admit there are a number of times my pack makes my jacket ride up. MTB shorts cost $75, a nice coat $150. So it is not out of the world as far as price.

    I never had a need for MTB clothing other than the same thing I ride on the road - lycra bibs and jersey. That said, I've always been a 1.5-3 hour XC ride kinda guy, time/distance usually limited by what I felt game for on a 26" aluminum, rim brake xc bike. Hopefully that will change today with a new steel frame, if fedex ever updates my tracking info... and then I'll think about getting kitted up with baggies etc. for more 'epic' rides.

    The photos show those outfits hosed with mud - we still aren't supposed to ride mud to save the trails right? I know I sound all "get off my lawn" but has that changed? I can't think of a time I have come home with significant mud sprayed all over me.

    dirtlej is a german brand. AFAIK there is no policy/rule forbidding the use of muddy trails in most european countries and in a lot of places it would be nearly impossible to ride if such policy existed. There are places that never really dry out.
