Found 23rd Sep 2013
Seems to be very decent technical cycling clothing that doesn't scream "MAMIL!" -- Proper casual clothing that does the job in all weather. Lots of other clothes on offer from the same brand - trousers, jerseys and jackets. Seem perfect for the commuter and rider that doesn't want to be branded a lycra lout.

Union 34 clothing is designed for cycling and therefore the fit does come up smaller than you would expect so we advise ordering a size bigger than you would normally.

Ordered a medium, says in the blurb to order a size bigger. Now I am confused!

Fingers crossed

I should really read everything before buying, totally missed that.

Ordered based on the size chart.

Ahhhhhhh, MAMIL, the phrase that only the Lycra clad know of.

And yes, I had to google it.

And lycra-dodgers!

I picked 2 of these up from Rutland's eBay site for £17 each. Really nice hoodie.

What's the sizing like?

Ok. I'm normally a medium or small (5'11" & 70kg) but I ordered small and it was great.

Size medium fit me perfect and I'm usually a medium so ordering a size up won't be for everyone. I don't like baggy cloths so if you like a close fit just order you normal size.

Mine arrived today, fits ok, not skin tight but not baggy, length is good. Small would be too short for me. I'm 6'1" and 72kg

Looks and feels really good. Definitely a good purchase. It could be slightly more close fitting but it's still ok.

Dammit, mine hasn't arrived yet! And I posted the deal!!

Mine also arrived today. Good fit, not to tight and has a good quality feel to it.
Great buy.

Cycled home with it on, it's incredibly warm, I regretted the decision about 2 miles in. It's going to be fantastic when it gets colder!

Got mine today and am impressed with the quality of it. Like the fact that it certainly doesn't look like a cycling jacket and could easily be worn off the bike. Also the hood is a neat touch as it's shaped to fit over your bike helmet.

Might need to look at some of the other items in the range - has anyone got the shirts or trousers?

I got the trousers and I'd say they're on a par with (the much more expensive) swrve and Levi's commuters stuff. At the sale prices, these are great items.

Is this jacket fairly breathable? I guess not if its keeps your warm?

got mine today - very nice indeed

to answer previous question on breathability, I wouldn't want to do the midweek 10 mile TT in it, but should be fine for nipping up the pub or as per/post race wear

I'm confused. The link takes you to the Rutland Cycling nain site?

It is Rutland, but I just tried the link and went straight to the product page. If it doesn't work, try searching for Union34 in the site's search bar.
