This jacket is very high quality and extremely comfortable. During cold commutes in Feb / March the jacket did a great job of keeping out the wind and rain. The silvery bits offer excellent reflective properties and the little velcro LED strip you can attach to the back is a nice touch. I bought a medium as normal and the fit was as expected - 10/10.

Debated for a while before buying this jacket, as there are so many other similar types of jacket out there. Anyway, couldn't justify paying more than £80 for a cycling jacket and this one had seemingly nothing but good reviews. I went for the XXL, I'm 6'3 and around 15 stone 10lbs (working on reducing it!) the Xxl fits me really well, Velcro cuffs tighten nicely and draw strings at the waist pull sides in where I need it. Long enough to cover my lower back nicely. Side vents keep jacket cool when in use. I do confess to getting a little sweaty around back /neck area after about 9miles but nothing more than I expected (more down to my fitness levels than the jacket I suspect) Nice fleece neck which keeps wind out at all times. The jacket hasn't been through any downpours yet but has seen me through 2 biting snow storms without a problem. Jacket is very bright (yellow) and really stands out on the road at night. Overall I'm very happy with it and would have no problems recommending it.

It does the job. Keeps me warm and dry and sweat free, without the need for extra layers, but so far its only autumn. The pockets are kinda tiny though. There is room for my gloves in one pocket and nothing else. I am happy with it so far, but I would have been happier with bigger pockets, and pockets on the inside too. We will see how I feel come the winter though.

By some distance this is the best jacket I've ever had. Although lightweight it's Much warmer than previous jackets I have used so don't need as many base layers in the winter. So far it;s held up in wet conditions and the reflective banding is the best I've seen. The surprise flashing/velcro back light is also very good. Highly recommended

The sizing of this is excellent, bought a size small (I've got athletic build, 35/36') and fits really well. Makes you really visible at night and is also very wind proof, not to mention also very very breathable. The jacket is very waterproof, I have had to cycle for around 10 miles on a very rainy and windy morning and kept me dry. I wouldn't wear this on its own during winter days though as it is too thin. Pockets are very handy as well.
The only downside I would say is that there is no hood (can be bought separately) and I wouldnt recommend buying the hood either as it is only a clip onto the back of the jacket.
Was a bit hesitant to be honest in buying an expensive jacket for cycling but is definitely well worth it.

First Evo Altura jacket began to lose water-repelling qualities after 6 years steady use so happy to replace it with identical jacket. It is used exclusively for wet weather cycling and can't be beat! Hope it's still available after another 6 years!

This is a very good product, lightweight, breathable and most importantly comfortable as well as weather proof.
Highly recommended buy. If you want to be seen and be safe, the red jacket will do the trick too.

This is my second Altura jacket and I think they great. I have used mine in some pretty awful weather over this winter and it has given me great protection against wind, rain, snow and the cold. It is stylish and very reflective with good pockets. It washes well but it has to drip dry.

I'm 6'4" about 16 stone ish and the XL is perfect.

A bit pricey but worth it especially after this winter.

Arrived super fast. Superb water proofing and reflection. Pit zips are a god send, previous experience has proven you get what you pay for.I would recommend it.

Been wearing this jacket for the last 2 weeks. Must say it keeps me warm! Only wearing a long sleve base layer and bib longs underneath and its keeping me toastie!!

The reflective additions are a bit of a godsend if, like me you commute into London as it would appear that everyone acts like Stevie Wonder behind the wheel when in comes to cyclists!

I removed the light on the back as I carry a backpack which covers the light, it can always be put back on if I just use the jacket.

Great product - would recommend
