The Reflex from Altura has plenty going for it, but one of the best is the fit. Whoever was responsible for cutting the pattern for this jacket did a mighty fine job.
On the performance front it managed to be one of the most waterproof jackets in the test, and yet also managed to be as breathable as the best. The material itself looks and feels very similar to eVent fabric but is lighter and slightly thinner.
The sleeves are nice and long and yet don’t bunch up at the elbows, and the tapered cuffs with reflective Velcro adjuster straps are great. There is a single small breast pocket that is amazingly waterproof, and a single larger rear pocket.
There’s reflective detailing in all the right places, and it’s also nice and wide for great visibility.
