There are a few styles within the Altura range, so knowing what you need from your cycling gear before shopping is essential. The core of the Altura range is its commuting jackets, designed to be reflective and hi-viz with the commuter in mind.
They are also quite ‘packable,’ which means they pack down small enough to go into a jersey pocket or to pop into your bag when you’re on the move. This makes them ideal for changeable weather or taking on trips to the cafe.
Another great feature of the Nevis is the stealth reflective trims on the top half of the jacket that will help you stand out in a crowd when hit by car headlights. It’s available in various colors and will look great on or off the bike.
Designed with the commuter in mind, this waterproof jacket will keep you dry and looking good at the same time.

This is all done with a cleverly engineered system that allows you to adjust your fit and feel easy. This is particularly useful for those with a wider hip and lower back region.
The Nevis is the best breed for quality and features a modern design that is well-made and slick, and classy. It also has a bit of style and has plenty of the right-sized pockets for your most precious belongings. There’s a nelson for the techies, two at the hip – and yes, the oh-so-coveted rear fanny pocket that’s the right size to hold a pair of gloves, midi pump, and spare tube without looking like you’ve dropped a hammer.
