I went today. Chatting about the base layers in the cold weather thread as I'm not sure how to wear them! What do u wear them under? The bottom half is most confusing to me as I usually wear 3/4 leggings.
Didn't get a jacket as wasn't sure which one would be best!
Recommendations? Xxx

without having seen them close up i would guess that the base layer undies should go under normal shorts , thats how i will be wearing them anyway if i manage to grab some

I got the base layers and some gloves. They didn't have the soft shell jackets in my local one..

The sight of me in a base layer top is the stuff of nightmares.

Cheers guys . I went this morning and got a soft shell gilet , Long sleeved sweatshirt and a hi viz vest .
They didnt have the base layers in my local aldi apart from the cycling ones which were just like leggings i already have .
Just been out and tested the gilet over the top of the sweater and first impressions are very good. Shirt very comfortable and will be lovely for winter runs . Gilet very nice fitting and material and 2 snug pockets on the front that held my gels , phone and keys without them bouncing around .

Anyone got any reviews of the rain jackets ? If they are any good i might go back for one later .

I got home last night to a massive pile of Aldi kit sitting on the dining room table. I think that 'er indoors cleared out the local store.

Gloves, ear warmers, hats, compression tops, several long sleeve tops and base layers running tights (male and female), high viz vest and lightweight hi viz jacket. (I think that was all!). From her description of the throng around the stuff, it's a popular event!

(Recent returner to running)

I popped into my local Aldi yesterday with the absolute determination to *only* buy the hi-vis gillet and the gloves.

Came out with no gloves (out of stock), but got:
- Hi-vis ladies gillet. I thought at first it was cut rather skinny at the waist, then realised the fault is the size of my belly and not their tailoring.
- Thin beanie. I got the last one in 'massive-head' size, and it's thin enough to wear under my cycling helmet.
- Black L/S top. I had not intended to buy this, even though the purple trim matches my nike running tights. I think the extra oxygen from my hyperventilation at the array of goodies on offer, fogged my judgment. Still, nice top for the price.
- Hi-vis L/S top. No, no, no. I had absolutely no intention to buy this. It's the highest hi-vis I've ever seen. Went out for a run today and was nervous as I approached the brow of a hill that I might dazzle oncoming cars and cause an accident. Comes out ever-so-slightly bigger than the black one and is v-neck rather than crew neck.
- Lots of part-baked bread. Well, it's only 39p a pack, so I can't resist!

I'm very impressed with the two tops and gillet (well, and the bread, obviously). The arms on the tops are very long (even for my gibbon arms) and they are quite long in the body. The tops also have mesh under the arms, and a mesh panel down the back. The gillet has two good-sized front zipped pockets, comes up high on the neck and even has one of those little fold over bits to stop the zip scratching you. Not bad for 13.

Just wanted to add my two Euro cents...
I'm in Germany but our Aldi had running clothes too recently. They were slightly different from the ones on the UK site. We didn't get the softshell gilets, unfortunately.
I got a really nice fluo-orange winter longsleeve shirt and another one in black (comes in handy if I want to do ninja intervals on the local school track).
I also got a fluo-yellow cycling jacket a few weeks ago. Currently I use that one for my daily cycling to work. Once the weather gets too nasty for that i plan to use it as a running jacket.
Usually the Aldi running stuff is really good. Only thing that I retired pretty soon was the low raise long tight. That one made me wonder if the designer ever ran at all. I had to pull up the stupid thing every 500m or so.

Been back this morning , All the stuff is still left in my local aldi .
Bought myself a long sleeved compression shirt . First of all these tops leave nothing to the imagination , These days i only have a smallish beer belly but the top even though xl digs right under my gut and makes me look like homer simpson
Teamed up with my new running gilet i went out for a run this morning and within a mile i was sweating cobs , I will be putting this thing away until more severe weather comes along .

Anyone tested out the waterproof coats yet ?

Just been to aldi for my shopping and I had a dig through the dregs of running gear and found the last waterproof coat in Large . Feels comfortable and fits nice . I have doubts about how waterproof it will be but we will wait and see.
