It doesn't get lighter than this. The Hot Pack Ultralight Vest is identical in every way to its jacket counterpart with the obvious exclusion of sleeves. Offering the Ultralight in a vest for reduces the weight to a feathery 38 grams. This vest breaks all current records for lightweight protection. Ideal choice for any summer rides when you may run into some wind or weather.
The Hot Pack Ultralight is a storm vest that offers complete water and wind protection that weighs in at a scant 38 grams. The low volume fabric makes for a tiny profile when rolled up. It's the ultimate in ultralight, packable protection.
Sportful developed the revolutionary 7 denier fabric specifically for the Hot Pack Ultralight. The yarn is super thin and tightly woven, then coated with Superleggera DWR water repellency treatment. The result is personal protection with unparalleled weight and size for its category. Sportful designers made sure the jacket has an exacting anatomic fit. This helps ensure there will be no flapping and gathering of material. The rear pocket and side vents are all laser cut. Added elastic trim helps further increases protection from the elements. The rear pocket also doubles as a compression pocket in which the jacket can be rolled into for storage.
We have yet to find so much protection in such a small, light and tight package. The profile is so small, there is almost no reason not to carry it with every ride. When completely rolled up, it takes practically no room up in your jersey pocket. Sportful wisely choose a slight off-grey color which hides dirt and debris after a spin in nasty weather. The Hot Pack Ultralight is a complete winner by any cyclist's standards and an instant staff favorite.
