If you are a year-round cyclist you need something that can protect you during the unpredictable and unpleasant weather, the Nightvision Thunderstorm Jacket from Altura is a sensible place to start at such a reasonable price.
This jacket comes in sizes S-3XL and in Charcoal, Red, Teal, Grey, Blue/Hi-Vis Yellow and Orange/Navy, designed to be both waterproof and breathable, suitable for both cold drizzly days and light summer rain. The Nightvision has taped seams and uses 20D 100% Nylon plaid +20D 100% polyester tricot main body fabric to ensure you are kept dry even in the heaviest downpours.
The hood is helmet compatible so you can remain safe on the road, it is also fully detachable to remove the bulk on sunnier days, the back of the jacket is cut into a longer length to keep your lower back dry when in the riding position. Visibility is essential to keeping you safe on the road and it is great to see Altura have strategically placed reflective panels over the shoulders and upper body and uses a colour reflective fabric on the lower back to make you stand out in low light and dark riding conditions.
To store your essentials there is an upper chest zippered pocket, two large torso zippered front pockets and one large rear zippered cargo pocket. There are rear upper back vents for extra ventilation as well as zippered underarm venting to prevent condensation building up in the jacket. This jacket is carefully constructed with plenty of storage making it a great commuting jacket and suitable for leisure rides, the reflective detailing keeps you visible from every angle whilst the water and windproof finish makes all year riding a more comfortable experience.
