In late fall and early spring, the temperatures don't often fall enough to justify a windstopping layer and a full complement of insulation. These two elements combined are a lifesaver in winter conditions, but during the transitional seasons, too much warmth without enough breathability is a recipe for a cold, sweaty disaster. Sportful's Fiandre Light Jacket addresses this problem by offering a layer of Windstopper with just the right amount of insulation to keep the elements at bay while modulating your body's microclimate temperature. The women's version benefits from the same pro feedback from the Tinkoff Saxo team that informs the design of the men's Fiandre Jacket, but it's cut to fit a woman's figure. The Fiandre Light Jacket is built with Gore's venerable Windstopper Lightstretch fabric, a combination of protection and fit that Sportful claims other professional teams opt to use clandestinely without the benefit of a sponsorship. It's the lightest Windstopper fabric in Sportful's line, which means that pros who have tuned their bodies to perfection won't be hampered by any extra grams when conditions warrant extra protection. It also means that aspirational riders ranging from Cat 1s to weekend singletrack recreationalists will enjoy a jacket that is lightweight, breathable, windproof, and waterproof courtesy of a DWR treatment. The Fiandre Jacket won't make you climb like Tinkoff Saxo's mountain aces, but you'll be just as comfortable in inclement conditions. The full length zipper is waterproof, plugging a common hole in anti weather defenses of cycling jackets. Two rear pockets offer storage for extra tubes, personal effects, and the gloves that you may or may not decide to use on the ride. A long hem in the back keeps road spray off of your tail, and reflective details help keep you visible in low light conditions. The Women's Sportful Fiandre Light Jacket is available in six sizes ranging from X Small to XX Large in the colors Blackfuchsia and Ma...
