I love all my flab gear, top quality and fits very well. The website is great and easy to use and flabs customer service is second to none. Keep up the good work
FLATB is the best company for plus size cycling gear. I have bought winter and summer over the years, always fits, no returns. Every time I try another company I am disappointed. Fat lad makes me feel part of the cycling world in Australia. Keep producing clothes that fit. Josh

Where does one start with ‘Fat Lad at the Back’?
Apart from the obvious fact they make cycling attire for people who are larger than Chris Froome on a bad day, thery also make cycling attire that is not only comfort but of damn good quality.
I know this because I still have some stuff that is 5 years old from their original lines.
Granted, I’m not a heavy cyclist at the moment, but I used to be. Not only does their stuff fit a bigger person comfortably and make them lookely shapely from behind, but it allows you to enjoy riding that bike for much longer journeys than would ordinarily be possible. It keeps you warm, it keeps you cold, it keeps you dry - but it doesn’t keep you wet. Apparently ithas some wick effect that stops you keeping wet.
I don’t know if that’s a Yorkshire term or an official scientific term - whatever it is, it works.
When you look at those prices, you might think ‘bloody ‘ell!’ But let me assure you, you are being the good stuff - not that eBay stuff. You are buying stuff that can adapt to a change in size to more than a few inches of the belt size. You are buying jerseys and jackets that can hold your phone, your keys and most importantly - several pork pies.
How else are you supposed to maintain energy for some of those lengthy bikes rides without a supply of pies? ;-)
This isn’t any old cycling attire you are buying. It’s not even M&S cycling attire you are buying.
This is FAT LAD attire you are buying. This is not only to be worn, it is a sign that you are proud of who you are, that you are part of a big family (though the family does find itself getting smaller ;-) )
The joy you will get from weating this attire is not something that can be measured in Pounds Shillings & Pence. The fresh air, the improved health (mental and physical) and those places you get to see when doing less than 60mph in a car!
Never be afraid to invest in Fat Lad - never heard of any unhappy customer yet!
I love the feel of this jersey, so soft and comfy. And seriously everyone on the trail comments on my cakes jersey! I will say the sizing is generous, I ordered based on my measurements but could have sized down. But roomy and comfy. I wish there were more brands offering jerseys for bigger bodies, cause we love looking awesome on our hikes too!
FLAB - excellent concept implemented with sound ethics and great approach. The quality and fit of the gear is great too.
My mens cracking shorts are cracking. Comfortable they fit and stretch everywhere.
“Finally sportswear that fits those of us at the beginning of our fitness journey not just those small and skinny folk who are naturally gifted sand able to buy from anywhere. As a lady with generous lady lumps I don’t fit into an xxxl (size 10!!) standard jersey or shorts but this one from FLAB is brilliant and if anything a bit big. Great print and fit. Highly likely to buy some more kit soon.”
“I’m really pleased with my cycling shirts and the fact that you can get them In ‘plus’ sizes for ladies. They’ve made a big difference in comfort which means I’m able to cycle further. They are expensive but are well made, look good and oh so comfortable (Which is the main thing for me). I will be back for another pair at some time soon and highly recommend them to anyone thinking of purchasing a pair. Efficient order and delivery service. All good!”
“Great quality and worth the cost. Was initially a bit skeptic although but really wood quality and so much more comfortable than some cheaper cycling shorts I have. Fit is great and they are quite flattering.”
