With conditions warming up slightly, a winter jacket can be a bit too warm. The Altura NV2 Thermo jersey is a good weight if it’s around 10C outside.

The Altura NV2 Thermo jersey is fleece lined and sufficiently close woven to give a degree of windproofing and to help keep in your body heat, although it’s not fully windproof or weatherproof. Heat is also aided by a good fit around the hip, cuffs and collar and has a backing strip to the zipper.
