Altura has built a solid reputation on no-fuss clothing at sensible prices and the Attack 180 is no exception to that. We’ve found it to be especially good at crossing into a commute world where it doesn’t shout ‘bike’ when you pull it over your everyday clothes to pop out for lunch.

The cut helps here – it’s easy enough to layer up underneath as needed, with a raglan sleeve that allows great shoulder movement, ensuring it doesn’t disappoint on the trail either.

Somewhere between a heavier weight hardcore waterproof and shell, this jacket treads the middle ground well – it’s durable yet still squashes into a pack. Featuring two zipped handwarmer pockets, a dropped hem with drawcord, a zip garage and a long grabbable zip pull it has all the bits you need and none you don’t.

The breathability isn’t high but it’s in line with what we’d expect for this price. Taller riders will wish for greater length through the body and the sleeves though.
