Sportful Fiandre Light NoRain Top
Sportful is a true master of the lightweight jacket category and shows off their expertise by developing and constructing some of the most specific purpose jackets on the market. The Fiandre Light NoRain Top is as light as many wind vests, yet is a full jacket-style top that has form-fitting stretch fit and wind and water resistant materials that are highly effective. Never mind all the features and technologies, this is a fairly audacious cycling jacket for discerning cyclists who want to be able to train aggressively in less than optimal conditions.
The front face, shoulders and upper arms of the piece feature WindShield 3L stretch knit windproof fabric. This is an extremely lightweight, highly breathable three layer material that features 4-way stretch for use over a light jersey or skin, premium windblocking for it's weight, and has been treated with DWR to repel water. NoRain Light is used for the rest of the jacket. The back and forearms are Lycra-based with Sportful's NoRain treatment that blocks water without compromising stretch. The wrists narrow, then the cuff flares over the back of the hand with a windblocking seal.
A YKK® Vislon® zipper allows you to easily zip or pull down, and is covered with a full length placket that prevents wind and water infiltration. it terminates in a high neck collar with zipper garage. The inner collar itself has a soft, breathable waffled surface for comfort. There are even zippered pockets sewn into each front side-seam. A stitched light elastic band around the bottom hem augments the fabric stretch for good hold in an aggressive cycling posture. Sportful uses reflective heat transfer strips for visibility and safety to round out the Sportful Fiandre Light NoRain Top. Far more versatile than a vest, with plus-level wind and water protection that most rain shells can't touch, this is a jacket that also provides some warmth, with very good breathability.
