Function and style blend seamlessly with the Altura Nightvision X Windproof Jacket. High levels of windy weather protection and amazing low light visibility in a package that doesn't instantly scream 'commuter'.

Subtle dark panels that illuminate brilliantly when catching light makes the Altura Nightvision X Windproof Jacket a head turner in the fashion and visibility stakes. The Altura Darkproof® technology comes to life when caught by light, maximising the amount of light returned to the source giving you 360-degree visibility. In addition to reflectivity you also benefit from an integrated rear flashing light to really catch the eye.
Not only is the Nightvision X a good looker, it is a highly functional windproof garment. With the Pit and Yoke Draft Venting™ you also have excellent airflow for complete temperature regulation.
For riders who like their kit to be subtle and stylish but with no compromise on functionality, the Nightvision X Windproof Jacket really hits the spot.

If the breathability is poor then its a no-go from me! I guess if you're a steady plodder then it should be fine, but I don't want to get home and find the inside of my jacket is wetter than the outside!
Doesn't appear to have enough hi-vis for my liking, too dark.
After several purchases of cheap jackets that were frankly a waste of money I finally bit the bullet and got a £100+ goretex jacket.
Finally a jacket that is waterproof, windproof and highly breathable. Spending the money doesn't always get a better product but it does with cycling jackets. And seeing as though I cycle to work everyday I think I can justify spending a little extra for the right equipment as I am saving a hell of a lot of money on petrol costs.

Thanks OP. I’ve ordered one for myself and one for my husband, I’ve never had a problem with Altura so I will eagerly await their arrival to see what the quality is like. Their night vision stuff is usually excellent.
Thanks op looks brilliant
Is this recommended for runners as well ???
Well worth a punt at 20 quid

I notice that they mention 'Pit and Yoke Draft Venting™ for increased breathability.'

At only £20, think I'll risk trying it. At least if the traffic behind me is skidding all over the shop on sweat puddles, I'll be spotted before being knocked off my bike!

All but 1 reviews are 4 or 5 star? Had a Google search on reviews and it averages 4 out if 5 which for a cycle jacket is ok.
For £20 (even £40) why are people expecting more than effectively a bin bag???

You want something wind and waterproof wear a bin bag, you want something wind and waterproof and breathable well your going to have to spend more than £40 I'm afraid.

I've got a £70 galiber jacket, wind and waterproof, yet not very breathable but it's a great jacket for the winter months.

Yeah but check the detail - lots of broken zips and wetter inside that outside from sweat, plus questionable visibility.
For £20 you can’t expect much more, but basically don’t buy a jacket for £20. Looks poor...

How odd one poor review the other good says nice jacket the other two in a foreign language. "Lots" of broken zips when there are only 5 reviews?

Widen your review search to more than one website maybe??
Looks decent, would have a go if I needed a new biking jacket.
Twenty quid - Heat from me - it's the same price as my Pacajak (and that's definitely not "breathable")
Frankly I've never found any cycling clothing that can deal with every type of weather/riding all year round - there's always a compromise somewhere. But hey - that's life!

Mine came back today - very impressed for £20 - feels nice and is 'thicker' than I thought it would be.
Nice, does it come with the cape and mask?

Up until recently I commuted 100+ miles a week all year and I've never found anything that doesn't end up wetter on the inside than out. That includes gortex, event, windtex ... The more expensive fabrics do stay dry for longer but eventually all end up the same. The human body can vary between 100 and 1000W heat output so I think its a pretty tough ask. The other problem is that the fabrics do deteriorate over time and washing

I've never bought this kind of stuff before but isn't windproof but breathable kinda contradicting? How can it be breathable without letting wind get through? Or at least it can't ever be that breathablesurely? Or am I misunderstanding something. Maybe the £100+ jackets are but this is only £20.
No nightvision from this like my collectors edition call of duty nightvision kit
Thanks for posting, we have added this to the Highlights section
I’ve got terrible wind and doubt this will make a difference, worth a punt for £20 though. Added bonus you get night vision. Always wanted to try that.

Heya..

I can see why it's confusing.. "windproof" in manufacturer jargon doesn't mean "airtight".. it just means it stops more wind that a regular item of clothing like a wedding dress or some kind of ripped umbrella.

"Breathable" on the other hand, is pretty much what it says (albeit a physical set of human lungs not included, sadly).. it's providing very tiny pores for sweat to escape.. may sound weird put like that.. um.. ok..

Sweat evaporates to cool you when you're too hot (for example if you get hot running in a silly binbag-like apparatus).

So the sweat wont be able to escape through a plastic jacket.. and because the jacket is on the outer side (colder because exposed to air) the hot sweat vapour will therefore condensate on the inside of the binbag plastic jacket getting you all wet when you get to your gf house and she'll wonder what you're thinking, question your decision making facilities and fashion sense before suggesting evasive manoeuvres in your life.

If you want to avoid this slippy situation:

A breathable jacket will let your airborne water particles out of tiny pores in the material (think air flowing through portals.. or a jacket size house with an excited tea loving lady boiling kettles needing to open some millions of windows).

Problem solved.

Honestly, my decathlon rainproof is incredible. I paid £40 and I've hiked some huge mountains in it and use it for cycling and it's the best jacket I've had for the money having had the more expensive goretex/north face/Berghaus stuff.

Which jacket - can you provide the model and link, please?
Very happy with mine, looks good, fits well. Well worth 20 notes, happy days. Cheers op
I always by Gore, well worth a bit more when you’re using it every day.
Softshell jacket still going strong after two years use.

Can you describe everything I don't understand in the world to me?

Because I bet you'd be able to get me to finally understand it, all whilst having a laugh too!

Seems they don't produce it anymore, it was a 3 in1 for £40.

This is fairly similar but an updated outer layer: decathlon.co.uk/mh5…tml
