- Altura Mayhem………..Pish Poor?
Poorly made too, mate of mine had his since chrimbo and 2 of the zips have come off.
As an aside, a velcro strip from the pair of Altura Attacks I wore for the first time on Sunday has started to come away.
Bearing in mind this a a pair replaced under warranty, I can’t see me buying Altura again.Posted 5 years agoTreksterSubscriber
Been buying my cycle jackets from Cotswold sales line when passing their shops in Carlisle or the big one in Edin. Current wet weather fav is a Hagglof hooded climbing one which fits over helmetPosted 5 years agorOcKeTdOgSubscriber
Had mine for 4the months kept me dry in all weathers, toasty warm in the snow too, been battered to hell and back and still going strong, i took the hood off though as i don’t like riding with an air brake. Fleecy colkar is v comfy, never felt clammy in it, infact the mesh all the way down the arms is one reason i got it as i hate that rubbery cold feeling in bare arms you get with some jacketsPosted 5 years agohainmanMember
Had mine since crimbo and have no complaints,came off at GT on sunday,landed right on my shoulder and along the trail and not a scratch on it,no probs with zips and the hood is removable,same as my attack shorts since last year and still going strong wearing them on most rides…Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
What I wouldn’t give for a waterproof that could be described as cold! But if it’s cold and clammy then simply wear a base layer surely? That’s how layering’s supposed to work, personally I’ve never had a waterproof I could wear a longsleeved layer under though, except in proper winter.
I really rate Altura, never had anything of theirs that wasn’t first class tbh.Posted 5 years agopatriotproMember

That’s a shame, this jacket got good reviews and I was looking at it for my next jacket. Back to the drawing board,I guess.
Isn’t the hood removable?
The hood is removable and mate loves the jacket, it looks really smart too, I mean I’d happily wear it down the pub with jeans and trainers.Posted 5 years agoNobeerinthefridgeSubscriber
Good quality jacket, Had mine for 5 months now, wear it all the time. It is one of those jackets that is overwarm on mild, wet days, but I’m a sweaty bastard, Don’t think a jacket exists that could breathe what I put out. Build quality seems good so far.
You fella’s that are always busting zips and the likes, are you just Ham-fisted Galoots?.Posted 5 years ago
