Anyone have experience with Monton Sports?

Came across the brand searching for cool jerseys online and I really liked their designs.
Can't find much in other forums so I'll try here.

Hiya,

I reviewed some of their clothing for Bicycles Network Australia (see review link below).

http://www.bicycles.net.au/2016/10/monton-sports-a-tiger-in-lycra/

I used the shorts & jersey quite a bit, so they have shown some signs of wear & tear. The bib shorts recently started to die (threads coming undone on edge of chamois), but still have the jersey and that's going well. Colouring on the jersey is still fine.

Sizing, as a bit off (tends to me one size on the small side).

The rain jacket is still going well and liked that. Socks have faded a bit, but then again, they have also been used heaps and machine washed lots.

Jerseys & socks are the best value for me, with the bibs comparable to other mid range ones.

Which jersey designs do you like ?

Thanks MichaelB, I'll give it a read! :D
It's there whole line really. Been looking to buy a few warm weather jerseys but the designs of the big brands are so traditional. It's all horizontal or vertical lines and more or less the same color combinations. I think some of Santini's special editions are quite cool, but slap a Castelli logo on some of their standard production line and nobody would notice...

I think Monton have some cool original designs and some that are fresh new take on the more traditional designs.
