A Windproof Jacket to Burn Out Your Retinas!

A few weeks ago I bought myself a black Altura Night Vision Windproof Jacket. I have been very impressed with it. Today I managed to get a slightly updated orange version - and my goodness it is orange! Brilliant!!!









The jacket has:

Stretch, Windproof, water repel front, shoulder and sleeve panels.

Stretch thermal rear panels.

Full front zip with garage.

Three open rear pockets and a zipped security pocket. (All well positioned and extremely useful).

Velcro light stick LED mount.

Critically positioned reflective panels and trim (some of which you can see in the photos).

It is lightweight and could not be used in its own right as a winter jacket, but as part of a another layer, it really come into its own. In addition with a T-shirt underneath it would be perfectly okay for chilly spring/summer mornings/evenings.

I say updated, as it seems to be a much softer material than my black version and I must say, I do prefer it.

They really are great little jackets and I am sure will prove its worth on the many trips I am going on in the coming weeks.
