Among the items Ruibal reviews are the $500 Castelli Insolito Radiation jacket (with its “loads of sexy Italian style”), the $70 Rapha Fixed T-shirt (“substantial enough for post-commute cool-downs and coffee”), and the $39 Showers Pass Portland Cycling Cap (which “matches the Portland Jacket”).

The article said the products work in a “variety of conditions, including bike lanes, coffee shops and the office lobby.”
