Sportful Hotpack 5


Even in the summer, there are days when you just don’t have a clue what the weather’s going to do and Sportful’s diminutive Hot Pack is ideal to stuff in your jersey pocket in case of a downpour.

The jacket, which easily stuffs into the attached bag, will see you though showers and protects from the wind. It also features ventilation panels on the back and sides, which stopped things getting too hot and sweaty.

There’s reflective detailing on the back, a slightly dropped tail to save you from road spray and handy elasticated cuffs with thumbholes that keep the arms comfortably in place.

It won’t keep you dry like a true waterproof, but it’s a fantastic emergency measure in a small package.
