If youre looking for the lightest, most compact wind protection around, the Sportful Hot Pack Ultralight Mens Vest is it. It packs so small that Sportful claims it only takes up one third of a jersey pocket. But despite the incredibly packability, this vest is still fully windproof, highly water resistant, and ready to be deployed at a moments notice.
Sportful built the Hot Pack Ultralight out of an astoundingly light fabric. In fact, it feels incredibly delicate in your hands, despite the fact that its fully windproof. Despite the delicate hand, its plenty durable for the intended taskmeaning that its not exactly bombproof, but its robust enough for regular use. With packability being paramount, its not surprising that the small back pocket doubles as a stuff-sack. Sportful minimized the seams at the front of the vest, reducing the number of points of entry for water, should you decide to test the limits of its waterproofness.
A drop tail keeps your backside covered in the event that road spray starts kicking up. Mesh panels at the underarms help to vent excess heat when youre working hard. The elastic arm openings help to minimize the gap between jersey and vest, which minimizes flapping, and maximizes protection. And reflective accents make you more visible to drivers, so you stay safer on the roads, especially if dusk sneaks up on you.
The Sportful Hot Pack Ultralight Mens Vest is available in seven sizes, from X-Small, to 3X-Large, and in the color Light Gray.
