  • just got some stuff i ordered from the swrve website and i've got to say it really is good. i'm impressed with the fit, materials and quality of manufacture - top kit!

    also, the service from the website (mozz cycling) was awesome. it all arrived lightning fast and with a free cap. (i don't think my payment has even cleared yet!)

    just thought i'd say. that's all.

  • my husband got a pair of trousers from them and they are hot.

    did you get your stuff from this website johnny?

  • I've been buying off them for a while. Great service and on my last order they chucked in a free hat as i was a repeat customer!! which was nice.

  • I checked out the site, it look pretty decent, should order a couple.

  • yeah, that was my first order - from the www.swrve.co.uk site.

    got a windbreaker, a hoody and a hoody/jacket for when it gets colder. all good

  • I bought some nice wool mix 3 quarter length cycling trousers from them in the sale. Either I've shrunk them because I don't believe in following washing instructions, or my leg muscles have vastly increased in size, because they don't fit me properly anymore! :(

    when they did fit they were absolutely marvellous though. I may have to buy s'more. Also I need a new cap!

  • anyone got their jean? they look rather good and very suited to cycling, the price is high when i can get a decent jean (Levis, Diesel, etc.) for the price, but I want to know if it good for cycling.

  • was hoping someone may have some feedback on swerve's Milwaukee gore-tex hoodie - is it any good? as in is it fairly waterproof and breathable? If not any suggestions for something similar? the milwaukee is reduced to £85 now so looks a pretty good deal
    cheers

  • not true - genuine ask!

    I'm sure it was - I was addressing the OP. ;-)

  • fair enough!

  • I have some of their lightweight 3/4 trousers. Got them from Brixton Cycles at half price and they're great. Comfy and they look ok too.

    ta - BC got a sale on or you get them a while ago?

  • I got them about a month ago and I think they were just clearing stock of swrve stuff. I got lucky as they had a pair in my size. Might be worth checking if you're going past. The ones I got are schoeller dynamic (or something) and I think the ticket price was 80 or 90 squid so I got them for 40 or 45. They're really nice and US made, but I don't think I'd have paid full price for them.

  • cool, cheers. live right nearby so will drop in

    I have one, got it a month or so ago. Not really had to use it much as it is so warm (the weather and the hoodie) but the times when I have used it I have been really pleased.

    I was wearing it last night in Hyde Park when it was pissing down and I was dry inside. The waterproofness (sic) was great, no complaints there at all. Then it brightened up, I kept it on but rode home in it. I had to take it off half way cos I was too hot. That said, it isn't a summer hoodie, for winter it's going to rule. I could easily see it being fine for all but the coldest days with a base and maybe a very thin fleece underneath. I have been carrying it with me in bag all the time though, it's perfect for hanging out in when not doing much physical.

    Bear in mind that the Gore is the thickest of the materials that they use but also the most water and wind resistant. I like how the material feels, more like a jacket than a normal zip up hoodie.

    The cut is excellent and well thought out for the cyclist with longer tail, back pockets, longer sleeves with pointed bits to extend coverage. I will be buying more from them on the basis of what I received. I am definitely getting some of the jeans, some more 3/4's and maybe a couple of merinos because they are so cheap.

    I got mine from the US site.

  • Ben whats the cut like, I'm tempted but have seen swrve pants in the past and they are cut quite small, so am wondering if the hoodies are the same, I'm usually a L but obviously dont want to get an XL and find its miles too big for me, which has happened before with other stuff.

  • I would say that the cut is pretty trim, I got a large but I'm 6ft4 and of medium build. I would recommend trying one on if you can, I went to Mosquito for that very reason. The Gore version is cut the most generously of the three materials that you can get.

    The 3/4s that I got are too big however. I went for the biggest size and they are too loose around the waste and slightly too long it feels. I'm probably going to sell them as I've not really used them because of this. I've worn them and they are wicked, I am definitely going to get some more but in a smaller size. I couldn't try any in my size at Mosquito unfortunately.

    Hope that helps.

  • Cool will have a ride up to Mosquito tonight and see if I can try one, cheers fella.

  • No worries.

    yeah - cheers Ben. nice review that - exactly what I needed!

  • Glad to help, it can be a right pain in the arse getting clothes that fit how you like off the net.

  • win a load of swrve gear at Rollapaluza XI.....

  • Their caps rock the most.
    (Apologies Smeear, I haven't tried on one of your caps so actually I cannot confirm that Swrve caps rock the "most")
