Torm

Postby philwint » Sun Mar 31, 2013 15:47 pm

I bought a couple of jersey's and a base layer off these guys a couple of weeks ago.

http://torm.cc/products.html

Fantastic garments, I can't recommend them enough. Comfortable, well featured, and in this continuing chilly weather very warm (I was out yesterday in jersey, base layer, arm warmers and endura wind proof gillet).

And best of all they buck the trend of the usual garish cycling clothes that (to my eye) make most of us look a bit silly, and a bit racer wannabe. lol

I'll be wearing moine of the road and MTB, and will probably stock up on a few more.

Top kit at a sensible price

They nicked the style of Rapha, who bucked the trend of the usual garish cycling clothes ;-)

You can't beat a bit of wool mixed fabric though. Beats pure synthetics any day!

Half the price of Rapha though.

But they are twice the price, and twice as garish!

I've wanted to buy them but can't get any clarity on the size. I'm bang on the m/l borderline and just don't know which to get - I don't want one too small and don't want one too baggy.

I'm exactly the same at around a 38 inch chest. Been looking at these jerseys for a while and the sizing is the thing that always stops me for pressing the buy button. Think I'll give them a call and see what they recommend.

Erm being the slightly impulsive sort(and in a kind of mindless money spending frenzy since getting the new bike) I ordered one of the T8 Jerseys last night, really like the retro look. Went for a large after using their sizing tool. Can always swap it I guess, though they know how to charge for postage, nearly £6 for a jersey. Bet its nothing like that to return it if need be.

Anyway, if the quality is as good as it looks, will be decent value I think, cheers for the heads up.

We're definitely British, its just me and Al and we operate out of the local bike shop we own in Broadstairs Kent.

If you need any help with sizing just give us a call on 01843 865769 or mail me on mail@torm.cc.

As for postage and packaging we charge £5.40 for a jersey for delivery in the UK of which £4.10 is the cost of First Class Recorded Post. Or it's free if you come down and visit us!

I am usually a S in most but I was also dubious about sizing so never pulled the trigger. Total knock off Rapha but so much cheaper so worth a punt.

I have a Torm jersey and it is definitely my favourite in terms of looks. In the warmer weather it does not wick sweat away as efficiently as my more synthetic tops, but it remains comfortable despite this. No idea if Rapha's Sportwool is any better in this regard.

Looked at these several times with the intention of buying but stock always seems to be poor but will keep looking as kit looks good.

I have a T5 long sleeve jersey and its great. Size works well, washes well and looks great. Arm warmers are also great value. Found them helpful and will purchase again when i need a new top.

I've one and will get a few more. They are much thicker than a usual base layer - more like a t shirt. They are made from the same weight materiel as the jerseys. So very much a winter layer. I was out in mine today + a jersey and a wind proof gillet in freezing west yorkshire. And I was toastie.

If you need help with sizing just let me know and I'll make a recommendation.
