I have the altura attack in blue. Nice fit and comfy. Good every day jacket too. Have not had a chance to use it on the trail so I cant comment on breathability yet but i wear it to work for the short ride to the train station. The hood fits well and its just big enough so it does not drop over your eyes.

I am looking to buy the Hump jacket too, the hooded version. Quite like the design. Nice to know if anyone has tried it before.

Another Altura (ascent) wearer here too. Nice jacket, pretty cheap about 40 quid and does the job just fine.

I have three different jacket set ups depending on weather itself. Surface Pertex jacket for summer showers, Fox draft which you wear on its own (perfect for cold, muddy, wet ground ridiing) and then a Altura attack 360 for full on wet weather ridding.

Spent a ton of cash on a Mavic HC H2o.So far is brilliant but only tried once in proper rain. Water column 10.000mm (a lot!) Pocket at rear and at the chest, plenty of zips for ventilation...hope it lasts many years.
Remember: buy cheap = false economy.

I'm with Matt as I mentioned before for £7 decathlon will replace it :)
I only wear mine with a base layer on cold days as the boil in a bag effect is as good as one of those new heated ones or if it's raining cats and dogs and its 100% waterproof.
Fits well and you can ride it everywhere as its disposable
