Altura Nightvision Hurricane Jacket review

Edward Westrop tests out the Nightvision Hurricane jacket by Altura

Altura Nightvision Hurricane Jacket
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Altura Nightvision Hurricane jacket is a fantastic compromise between style and practicality for those who want great visibility when out on the road. It will meet the needs of the target audience: it’s not the most breathable of jackets, far from it, however you can rest assured that you will not be getting wet, at least from the outside, when riding in extreme conditions. It is very well suited to commuting, touring and bike packing and can be rolled up small enough to be stowed away in a handlebar bag for peace of mind in case you get caught in a downpour... or hurricane.

The Nightvision Hurricane waterproof cycling jacket sits at the top of Altura’s waterproof range, offering fantastic protection against wind and rain in more extreme circumstances.

This is a jacket designed to meet the needs of commuters, and we think it does just that - though its weatherproofing features do come at the cost of breathability, which we found lacking.
