Altura Cropton jacket review
A lightweight windbreaker from no-nonsense bike clothing manufacturers Altura, the Cropton has already proved its worth.
It packs neatly into its own rear pocket and uses a light ripstop fabric with water repellent coating, which means water beads and runs off effectively.
Of course, its key task is to beat wind not water, and when zipped up with the storm ﬂap closed you’re fully protected in sub-gale winds. Colour choice is yellow, orange or black, each with some reﬂective trim for safety.
