Review - Swrve _BLK POLARTEC heritage fleece pullover

Winter is coming; and with it the long rides, café stops, cross-training, and foul weather training gear that accompanies the season. I love winter... it is a special season; not only for the challenging conditions found on rides like those during the Festive 500; but also because there is no better feeling than jumping in a warm bath, and then pulling on a warm jumper, after a long ride in the cold crisp air.

The Swrve Black Label Polartec Heritage Fleece Pullover has fast become a favourite of mine for the 2016 winter season. Smart, yet comfortable; this is a jumper that will keep you warm on those cold days, but also look the part in the office or around town.

The lining of the Heritage pullover is made from POLARTEC® Thermal Pro fabric, which is lightweight, yet insulates superbly for its bulk. It breathes well too, staying comfortable even when the sun comes out. Then, because it's synthetic fleece, it is fast drying as well. It's worth mentioning that despite being synthetic is has a beautiful soft fleece feel, and the fabric is actually made from 68% recycled material - a great effort to recycle and re-use.

The outer layer of the Swrve pullover has a textured waffle appearance, and the cut is that of a classic crew neck sweatshirt; these two properties make for a smart casual look, and one that is easily capable of being worn to work or play.

Produced in only limited quantities (184 items), this is another great piece of superbly made kit from the American Swrve brand. Like all of their trousers, shorts, and shirts that I've tested in the past, it promises to really last the test of time too, with quality USA craftsmanship at its core. I wear Swrve trousers on an almost daily basis at work, and now I have the perfect sweater to wear with them.
