Shield yourself from moderate weather with the Sportful Hot Pack 5 Men’s Vest. Since it’s easily packable, you won’t take up a bunch of extra space when bringing this vest on rides, and its fantastic wind protection and water resistance ensure that it will more than earn its keep.
Sportful built the Hot Pack 5 out of Schoeller’s excellent Nanosphere fabric—a lightweight, windproof layer that’s DWR treated, and highly water resistant. In addition to being protective when weather rolls in, it’s supremely light, making this vest easy to pack in your jersey pocket. That task is made easier by an internal 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. Vents at the shoulders help to evacuate excess heat when you’re working up a sweat. And reflective accents make you more visible to drivers, so you stay safer on the roads, especially if dusk sets in earlier than expected.
The Sportful Hot Pack 5 Men’s Vest is available in seven sizes, from X-Small, to 3X-Large, and in the colors Black, White, and Yellow Fluo.

I am amazed by what Sportful have done here with the Hot Pack 5. On a cold November ride with drizzle and wind gusts up to 25+ MPH, my core remained completely dry and most importantly warm. The vents on the back of the Hot Pack 5 are amazing. I've never overheated with this vest on.
Overall, great product, especially for the price. I will update the review when I've ridden in heavier rain.
