Road Cycling UK Review:


Many of us have the luxury of commuting by bike (substitute the word ‘luxury’ for something less fluffy when it’s freezing cold and pouring with rain) and, like many regular commuters, I like to be both warm and visible.

This winter my first choice of top layer has been Altura’s Night Vision windproof jacket. ‘Altec’ windproof material covers the front facing sections of the jacket with breathable thermal panels used for the areas of the garment sheltered from the wind, essentially the back of the jersey and the underside surfaces of the arms.

While not as expensive as many jackets on the market, its performance is impressive. The Altec windproof sections are located perfectly, keeping the wind chill just off the areas that need them. The more breathable, softer shell thermal sections have been effective enough to help stop me feeling sweaty. This is ideal as the winter draws to a close and temperatures start to increase, as does my mileage and work rate on my ride home.

Increasing night time mileage brings me to the subject of making myself visible. Although brightly coloured cycling garments, which are good for day time visibility, have been available since forever, over the years I have worn ‘Sam Brown’ reflective belts and even reflective tabards simply because, at night, a reflective element is still needed to be effective. As you can see from the pictures, the bright yellow colour of this jacket is visible in close up shots only. The secondary shots were taken at a slight distance and, as you can see, only the reflective sections are actually visible. Fortunately, this ‘Night Vision’ jacket is so named because it does contain a generous amount of reflective material.

The jacket concentrates the reflective elements on areas relevant to a bike rider, especially on the front facing areas like arms and across the front of the shoulders. At the rear of the cuffs, which show well when indicating, the sections across the back are concentrated lower down, although it does have two strips down the back of the shoulders these are naturally less visible if you have a long and low riding position as I do.

So effective is the design that I no longer use my tabard or Sam Browne belt, as in comparison these have large sections positioned in areas that are far less visible when riding. Effort has also been taken to incorporate the reflective panels into the design in such a way that the jacket does not have that ‘railway workman’ look about it. Most such jackets are often reserved just for riding in the dark, whereas I would be happy to wear this jacket for day time use only.

" ~ Verified order Great Service & Delivery Altura Night Vision Windproof Cycling Jacket I need to stand up for the small guys here as most cyclists are Tall!! What a great price and well worth the money. Does what it says. Get a mudguard because you will not want to get this dirty. I'm forever having cars drive by quite close enough for me to want to hurl abuse at them. Now though, I don't have to worry, the orange Jacket, and I mean BRIGHT orange jacket is seen!! and ample space give to me (the Cyclist). Its a great buy. I'm 5'1, Slimish build and small fits perfectly!! "

"This is my second Altura Night Vision Windproof jacket. First one is still useable but showing its age and, after many thousands of miles on my bike, it is beginning to develop an aroma! Jacket is so comfortable, worn summer and winter with different layers underneath. The night visibility is second to none! Bought the new jacket for a holiday in the Hebrides, where it will be tested by the wind!"

"After riding at night on the roads in my MTB gear I thought I would look for something brighter. This fits the bill!! I brought the orange and it almost glows on its own. Its quite a warm jacket and if your moving only needs a thin base layer on mild nights. I feel a lot safer riding in this and at such an amazing price."

"My eyes! It's so orange. Like being tangoed. The windproof front and arms are great - a couple of thin layers underneath and it's good to 0 degrees. Material is comfy. Not a race fit and maybe a little short in the arms if you're going to be in full stretched race mode, but for commuting with drop bars it's great. "

Pros: Attractive, Well Built, Comfortable, Good Fitting

"I've been using this jacket over the last couple of weeks in a mixture weather conditions. Although it's not a waterproof it does a reasonable job of keeping the rain out in showers. I've used the jacket in temps down to 5c with a single thermal underneath and found this adequate. Any lower and another layer may be needed. Overall a great jacket for the cooler days with a plus that it's highly visible in car headlights at night. "

Pros: Attractive, Well Built, Comfortable

"this jacket does a really good job of keeping the wind out and is resistant to showers without being as warm/hot as a full waterproof jacket.. it's still early days but like all my other Altura products this jacket seems very well made/durable. The rear pockets are a nice size and the addition of a small zipped pocket could be handy for keys/money but unfortunately it's too small to fit a phone in. Reflective detailing is minimal but very effectively placed for all round visibility in vehicles head lights. Fit is a little on the loose side for a road jacket, which some may like and others not so much but this means it can be worn over various layers."

"Great jersey/jacket.. well made and sized to fit real people not just pro peloton racers.. a three season affair(too warm for summer) and quite a good looker too.. i have a old one in hi viz yellow.. it's six yrs old and still gets a run out in winter.. so longevity is a strong point.. I'd recommend to anyone who has struggled to get cycling gear to fit.. ie if you've a few lumps and bumps.. this is for you "
