If we were to choose just one word to describe the Attack it would be ‘sturdy’.
It’s made from a relatively thick fabric that has a grid mesh appearance on the outside but plush softness on the inside. There’s a reassuring warmth for chilly starts, but it wicks well so we found we didn’t overheat either.
So while this wouldn’t be a great choice once the sun really gets its hat on, it is versatile enough to be worn across a range of weather conditions. And if you pair it up with a windproof gilet, it’ll take you into the colder months too.
The fit is easily comfortable – we particularly liked the cut of the sleeves, which even without more complicated articulation sat just right for us.
The only niggle was the back neck tape, which was very scratchy.
