    Custom Jersey Suggestions

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hi ladies. I'm starting to look into ordering some custom jerseys. Do any of you have experience with this and would you share your thoughts, feedback on different companies?

    So far I'm thinking Primal, Voler and Sugoi. But I really haven't started looking that closely yet.

    TIA for any input.

    A friend had custom jerseys made after riding Devil Mountain Double. This is his blog. It's in his June 4th post.

    He's pretty particular.

    Champion Systems is good, too, though their women's fit is sorta weird.

    Our LBS used to use Sugoi, but really had a difficult time with them--LOTS of delays.

    ODRAM is using Primal. I'll let you know what we think of that in the next few weeks. Our order should be arriving soon.

    My DH's company uses Voler for their jerseys. I bought one a few years ago, and it pretty much turned me into a Voler fan. I love the fit and the feel of the jerseys. DH also has a thermal jersey/jacket that is part of the custom stuff for the company and he wears it a lot in the cold weather. We're pretty picky about fit, so I give them a thumbs up.

    My alma mater's cycling club used Primal. Nice jerseys, but apparently someone somewhere screwed something up and they ended up getting there late. At least, that's what I remember.

    our tri club used Sugoi a few years ago, but they became VERY difficult to work with (and far too many delays).
    We currently use Mt. Borah. They are much cheaper and much better service for small orders.

    We have had great success with Voler for various team kit orders. Highly recommended.

    I've used Mt Borah and Hincapie Sportswear. Like them both, like the products, like the customer service. I'd recommend either of them.

    I have custom jerseys at home that are by Voler, Primal and Sugoi. Of those 3, I think that Voler has the best quality of materials and workmanship. The Primal jersey I have is nice with exception of the zipper, it seems really cheap. I'm glad to hear that others like Voler as well.

    The Sugoi jersey I have is about 8 years old, so it's likely not representative of what they are doing now.

    I like the material on the voler stuff. It really breathes. I also really like their thick vest with pockets - that's a great piece.

    I love the construction of Voler's stuff. I just wish that their jerseys were a better fit on me. I've never had one that fit my (curvy) chest properly. Primal is a better fit from that standpoint.

    These folks were at NAHBS and it seems Independent Fab guys went with them for there in house jerseys.. Contact's name is Joni.

    I've also heard good things about Vermac.

    This is all hear say since I've never ordered custom jerseys

    You may have already found a custom jersey maker, but I just saw your post. I had custom jerseys done this summer by blackbottoms.com, which is in Utah. They were great to work with and they did the design work for me, based on suggestions we gave them. Their prices were very reasonable and I also liked they had a low minimum (6) to order. They will do jerseys and/or shorts + other items. We chose to just do jerseys. I dealt with Jenny. The design came out great, they seem to be high quality jerseys (full zip and club and/or race fit options for men and women) and everyone loved the shirts, which we wore on a Tahoe charity ride.

    Here's the front and back of the jerseys we did.
