The Altura Peloton Transformer Windproof cycling jacket is an ingenious piece of kit that cleverly transforms from a cycling jacket into a gilet so that you can dress according to the weather and even make changes to how you wear it mid-ride if temperatures begin to climb. Made from highly breathable Altura Shield™ fabric the Peloton Transformer cycling jacket is engineered to provide protection from wind and water whilst still offering high levels of breathability. With a sleek form-fitting cut this jacket is perfect for fast-paced training rides when you’re working hard and want to stay as aero as possible; the sleeves are quickly and easily detachable using simple but secure zips and stored in the jacket’s own year pockets. Reflective detailing means you’ll stay visible to other road users in poorer light conditions and a chest pocket with a media port means you can use and MP3 to motivate yourself with your favourite tunes when it’s safe to do so.

I'm 5"8, 165lbs, 40" chest, medium was a great fit, no flappy bits. Wore it with a base layer at 9degs and 20mph winds. Did a great job keeping the wind out.
Not wore it with the sleeves off yet but this is a great top.
Really snug fit, I needed a size bigger than expected. Decent quality.
Having signed up for a sportive which was held in mid October, I decided to purchase this top as the weather was hit and miss.
On the day the temperature was around 9 degrees and rain was forecast so I decided to take this top and I'm so glad I did.
Not only did it keep me waterproof it certainly kept me warm but not over warm.
Great purchase on my part
Great top, fits snug and felt warm despite strong cool winds. Had a massive downpour whilst wearing it, and despite getting wet, it was dry within 20mins and felt comfortable. Would recommend
Great fit, M on 190cm, 73kg, 93 cm chest. Kept me warm in +7-+10c with a merino short sleeve t shirt under. But the windproof material gets a little bit cold against the skin, so next time I'll have a long sleev under :)
Takes time to dry after washing
Good quality, great fit. Love the detachable sleeve that transforms it into a vest. Great feature and good selling point that you need to consider advertising.
The sizings are really small - the chart says I should be an XL but there is no way that I'm fitting in this! I should have ordered a XXL.
Wear this most of the time, when it feels a bit fresh. Really good as the arms can fit in the back pocket at a squeeze. The top pocket just fits a Samsung s7, a bit of a squeeze to get the phone in and out.
Very good, whip the sleeves off and you've got a perfect gilet
Very good product at the price. Slim fit. Super-versatile thanks to detachable sleeves. Highly recommendable.
Fantastic jersey & good down to 5 deg.
Gets sweaty inside above 10 deg tho.
Close fitting so go size up if want a couple of thermal etc under.
Excellent price yet again from Merlin
Good tight Race fit / Tail nice and long and rear pockets a bit lower than most.. but that's actually a good thing since I'm pushing 50 (reduced flexibility)- Good for those colder summer days or early morning rides. Quality appears to be OK (only been in use for a short while). Would recommend
A bit of a snug fit for the recommended sizing, but otherwise functional and stylish.
Fantastic jacket - love the fact that you can covert it into a gillet when it's warmer.
