Hot Pack 6 Vest

Shield yourself from moderate weather with the Men's Hot Pack 6 Men's Vest from Sportful. Since it's easily packable, it won't take up precious jersey pocket 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 builds the Hot Pack 6 out of a stretchy fabric that's lightweight, windproof, and water resistant. In addition to being protective when weather rolls in, it's supremely compact, so it's there when you need it and not when you don't. That task is made even easier with its internal stuff-sack. Up front, Sportful minimized the seams, reducing the number of points of entry for water, should you decide to test the limits of its waterproofness.

A tall collar adds extra protection and keeps body heat in while vents at the back help to evacuate excess heat if it's too much of a good thing and you're working up a sweat. Lastly, reflective accents make you more visible to drivers, keeping you safer on the roads, especially if the sun sets before you're done having fun.

The Sportful Hot Pack 6 Men's Vest is available in seven sizes, from X-Small to 3X-Large, and in the colors Black, White, Orange Sdr, Green Fluo, and Yellow Fluo.

  • A lightweight, compact, and protective vest for road rides
  • Durable, water-resistant, windproof fabric keeps you dry and warm
  • Form-fit is comfortable on the bike and reduces flapping
  • Minimal front seam cuts down on water ingress
  • Reflective accents improve visibility in low light
  • Back vents let excessive heat exhaust
  • Stows away into its own internal stuff sack

Cheesy and Small

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

Very small. Few medium garments don't fit me; this one was so tight. Took me several tried to get the zipper to catch and then it immediately jammed. This material is light, yes, but you really get not much for your money here. It is very cheaply made.

Really Small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I am 5'10" with 35" waist, I could not zip up this vest! needed two more inches of fabric to connect zippers - have to return! I think this company needs to rethink their sizing!
I did like the vest, thinking about a reorder of XXL to see if it fits!

Works for me...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Extra Large

I have/had the Sportful Hotpack Ultralight Vest in size large which I was more than happy with. Unfortunately it slipped out of my rear pocket and landed in my cassette. Hence the need for a new one. The Ultralight has been discontinued so I bought the 6 hoping they were the same. They are the same but for a few differences. Sportful has changed the sizing so what was a large is now an XL. I exchanged my purchase accordingly. The fabric is the same, very lightweight but it is durable. I've used it extensively and it blocks the wind and I imagine will shed the rain when needed. The XL gives a little more shoulder coverage than the L which is good but still you get a skin tight fit around the chest and waist. The fabric stretches so it fits around all the items I carry in my back pocket, mini pump included. The zipper pull on the 6 is not as quality/efficient as the Ultralight so it's a bit cranky getting started. The 6 offers a stuff sack in addition to the stuff pocket that it already has so I think it is redundant and not needed. It just adds a bit of bulk and weight where the stuff pocket was sufficient ala the Ultralight. Both still pack down to a size of a deck of cards. I'm satisfied with the 6 as I was with the Ultralight. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 due to the need to size up and the reduced quality of the zipper pull...

Sizing is a joke

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I wear 3 other bike vests, all size large. This one I could not get within 4” of closing. It felt like a small.
Color was true to picture. I wanted an orange vest. Material felt paper thin and cheap. I did not actually ride in it. I will not reorder this item. Disappointing.

I just received the Castelli Thermal Pro and love it, just order a size up. They always run small. I wear an XL and all they had was the XXL, so I gambled and it paid off.

The fabric IS thin but it IS durable...I agree you will need to size up...Having owned two of these ( see my review above ) I think you will be happy if you make the purchase, especially at the current more than 50% off...
