A jacket for all seasons thanks to its smart removable sleeve design, the Altura Transformer Windproof Women's Jacket is a great example of how far women’s cycling products have come.
What they say: A jacket that is the perfect all year round jacket for the rider who demands performance, protection and comfort at all times, regardless of the conditions.
The jacket is well-equipped with a good number of pockets and features a bright design with plenty of reflector areas, making a good safe option for those who cycle in urban areas.
The fit of this jacket is another of its real selling points, it is supported to fit the female form perfectly and also has some nice touches that make it feel like a decent jacket and jersey in both of its forms.
All in all, if you are just starting out in cycling and looking for a good quality, inexpensive garment that covers a good range of situations, this is for you.
Who it's good for: A very technical and versatile item for female riders that doesn’t impact too heavily on the pocket. Looks good and performs in a wide range of conditions.
