The Hackney GT Camo jersey design is one of three from Swifty Grafix and is made in the UK.
Hackney GT describes itself as a cycle clothing and fashion label. It aims to make cycling kit that looks a bit different from the usual pro kit-inspired designs but retains their technical features.
Although dubbed camo, it’s bright enough that it should keep the SMIDSYs at bay, with a pattern including swathes of red, yellow and blue.
According to Hackney GT: “Swifty has always been a fan of who we are and what we’re trying to achieve and has wanted to work with us for a while. His take on the camo print is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time and are glad we can now release it.”
Sleeves are black and there are quite substantial, wide cuffs to the arms. Although not as yielding as some, these are wide enough that I found them comfortable and they kept the sleeves in place well. There’s also a silicone gripper at the waist and a quality UK-made zipper.
The black rear pockets include a fourth zipped one, and there’s a dart of reflective material sewn into the bottom hem of the middle pocket for extra visibility. You get a Swifty Grafix logo on the rear, as well as the Hackney GT one and a banner saying that the Hackney GT Camo Swifty Collab jersey is made in England.
The Camo jersey is available in a range of men’s sizes from XS up to XXXL and in women’s sizes from 8 to 16 too. The camo design makes a change from the run-of-the-mill cycling jersey, without sacrificing comfort or technical performance.
