    Just to throw a spanner in the works I have no probs with the pockets. HTC M8 goes in a waterproof travel wallet (with keys, cash and card) and into a side pocket. Mini pump and one tube go in the other side along with a tool. Second tube and food go in the middle pocket along with arm or leg warmers - waterproofs I have no use for. You lot need to leave the make-up bag and spare panties behind and you'd have no problem :wink:
    Which pocket do you keep the spanner in ;-)

    So, you want higher side pockets and a wider middle pocket, have I got that right? Do you use any storage on your bike?

    Yes, you got it right and no, I've given up on saddle bags, hence I need large pockets

    Can you draw me a picture of what you want?

    No need for a picture, wouldn't know how to upland one... it's pretty simple: the side pockets need to be an inch taller or so and the middle one needs somehow to be more roomy, so that I can fit a rolled up showerproof coat. Basically what Rapha and Colomba offer in terms of pocket size is good enough for me

    Torm - I can manage with the pockets of the size they are now, if they were a little bigger then fine.

    Great to hear you are using stronger stitching to remedy previous issues.

    I did mention earlier about a pump sleeve in a pocket, and how if it were an option I'd happily pay for it.

    I really commend you for your business, I really like the way the two of you are making good quality clothing at reasonable prices.

    Our jerseys have different pocket sizes based on the size of the jersey, what size Torm jersey do you have? I'm in London a fair bit, how about we meet up and we can discuss what would suit you, then I can take the design away and make some samples ?

    We thought hard about the pump holder, if fact back in 2010 we had some samples made up with it in there...but we decided against it at the time. Let me talk to Al about it.

    Sounds good, I'll do some measuring when I'm back in the shop on Monday and I'll let you know what the current sizes are. Then we can meet up and discuss, I can be free most days.
    Anyone else up for a catch up in London to talk about pockets!?!

    With or without ride? Do you have a cyclocross bike? I could put together a fun day out with an extended coffee break to discuss pockets and stuff...

    I sadly won't be joining the ride, but I would like to comment that I am impressed by the lengths Torm is going to regarding feedback and customers' requirements - bravo, sir; bravo!

    Sure I do...although I use it mainly for dirty commutes...cyclocross looks too much like hard work for me!

    I wasn't planning on jumping barriers, more like jumping on a bridleway to avoid a stretch of main road... this time of the year it's a bit harder skinny tyres on soft ground.

    I can arrange a "Torm ride" starting from south west London, depending where it's convenient for you (Richmond Park has free car park and pretty empty Mon-Fri) or a station like Clapham Junction if you come by train.

    Nothing legendary, 2-3 hours on the bike and an extended coffee break to discuss jerseys. Ideally with biggish tyres, but if the majority prefer road only, then so be it. Friday mornings probably best

    Have you tried putting the HTC in the pocket in portrait mode ?

    OK, tomorrow I'll open a thread in the rides section. Tentatively 14th or 21st of November?

    Just to let you know me and Al do closely follow the great debates on here regarding our products and we act on all the comments both good and bad which allow us to further develop our products. It's important to us to respect the forum and to stay within the forum rules so we won't always input into a debate (although we are always itching too !) unless we are specifically asked to comment, so feel free to ask away :D

    You bumping the thread? Cheeky... :wink:

    It's good to let people know that we listen, I think people would like to know that
    Well OK then, so MAKE YOUR POCKETS BIGGER!!!!!
    .....I HEAR YOU....what size Torm jersey do you have?
    Medium in a summer jersey and Large in your winter long sleeved

    So is the newly formed Torm sponsored jersery design ride series being rolled out around the country?

    Suggest the next one is south-east Scotland.

    Well, we'll see about that one... it appears that to involve people on this forum for a ride you need the presence of a real World Champion... :wink:

    I should hope so, it's ridiculously massive!

    I've had to fall back on Rapha since I upgraded my iPhone at the beginning of the summer - can't fit a 5c in the Torm pocket comfortably.

    Luckily it will be a couple of years before my next upgrade, because I doubt the 6 would even fit in the larger Rapha pocket :(

    *yes I am aware this post screams "fashion victim" :shock:

    I've got the Davis Phinney jersey and I can just fit a 6, with a headphone jack inserted, at a squeeze into the zipped pocket!

    ...I'm sampling some designs this week...I reckon with these the iPhone 6/Galaxy S5 will fit in the zipped pockets of all the jerseys from small upwards...and even the iPhone 6 plus should fit in the zipped pockets from Large upwards. The iPhone 6 plus will also fit in the centre pocket of all size jerseys...just don't ask about iPads !!!

    That is one avenue... I am more interested in carrying stuff I actually need to carry, like a light showerproof, a roll of basic tools, a spare tube

    I can comfortably fit a Lezyne caddy sack (has basic tools and inner tube inside), a pump and a Castelli rain jacket plus phone (iPhone 5) in my jacket today. Don't ride tubeless so have no experience about the ability or otherwise of jamming one of those in a pocket.
