ALTURA - THERMO FLOCK - CYCLING WEEKLY - 9 OUT OF 10 - 13 SEPTEMBER 2018
Altura’s Thermo Flock jersey is constructed from a soft brushed thermal fabric with a fleece-style inner which feels kind against the skin and provides a high degree of insulation. The material breathes well, but it’s more suited to colder conditions than those you’d find in traditional September climates – this is one to save for the later months of year.
The fit is fairly relaxed but flowed well against our tester’s form, offering a flattering but comfortable option and sizes are well spaced. Denoted via the familiar UK system of 8, 10, 12 and so on.
There’s a traditional layout at the rear, with three pockets plus one zipped valuables compartment, and a dropped tail to keep the worst of the spray off. Two reflective stripes add add to visibility, too.
The silicone gripper at the hem keeps the jersey in place, though it’s a fairly basic style, while wide bands at the wrists hold the sleeves down but add a nod to luxury.
At £54.99, this jersey represents good value and the bold pattern will brighten up the black bibs of winter.
