    Altura generally do a good selection, try Googling them, the Night Vision is excellent, the Stream is really good but I don’t know if they are still being produced, they’re very light weight and pack up really small. 😉

    Might be a bit late with this post, but if you have not bought yet, might I recommend the Endura Laser at £34.99, a cracking priced waterproof.

    Folds into the pocket and it has a couple of handy velcro straps on the inside to fasten to your top tube if your not carrying a pack on your back.

    10/10 recently in MBR mag (don’t buy the toss mad but scan it in wh smiths whilst waiting for train)

    the other day riding home from work with my altura night vision jacket on and my joy stickmaxx helmet light on when i noticed a car driver rushing to put his seat belt on then stopping at a roundabout a “chav” said “hey mate is that a camera” followed by beeping from a white van man, then it clicked they all thought i was a bike cop maybe mountain bike porn should adopt the look as a deterant

    I have both the Altura “Night Vision” (Black) and “Nevis” (Yellow) Both are excellent jackets, although I prefer the Nevis being a snug fit. The Night Vision is very good in heavy rain, kept me bone dry.

    Well worth the money, although I only paid £10 for the Nevis from the York Cycle Show (Cyclesense) and got the Night Vision second-hand for £30 from another cycling forum.

    The Altura gloves are very good too, although the gloves from Aldi were a good buy for the price paid.
