Easy protection.

If you need compact weather protection, the Sportful Hot Pack 5 Men’s Jacket fits the bill. Built light and packable, for quick deployment when weather rolls in, this jacket provides fantastic wind protection, and some backup insurance if that wind is followed with rain. Think of it as an ideal backup plan when you’re only pretty sure that today’s a nice day to ride.

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 jacket 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 jacket, reducing the number of points of entry for water, should you decide to test the limits of its waterproofness.

The dual-use cuffs offer thumb loops, to keep your wrists warm and protected from strong gusts. A drop tail keeps your backside covered in the event that road spray starts kicking up. A mesh panel at the back helps to evacuate excess heat when you’re working hard. 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 Jacket is available in seven sizes, from X-Small, to 3X-Large, and in the colors Black, White, and Yellow Fluo.

Light, small, waterproof, not breathable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

This jacket packs very small and easily fits into a jersey pocket. It is only a few grams heavier than the Ultralight version by the same brand, and still very light (80 grams in S, says the kitchen scale).

The fit is true to size, but definitely form-fitting. I don't have any extra grams on my body, and most jackets turn into a parachute on me - this one doesn't and there is hardly any flapping. The fabric has some stretch - just enough that it still fits over pretty full jersey pockets.

It does a great job of keeping the wind off and appears to be waterproof, but unfortunately the material isn't breathable at all (in fairness, nowhere does it claim to be). If wearing it for a longer time, you will be soaked - whether it's raining or not.

My other - very nitpicky - nitpick is that although the jacket's back pocket itself can serve as a perfectly good stuff sack, there is a separate stuff sack in said pocket, attached with a string to the jacket. If you forget to put the stuff sack back in the pocket, you'll be riding with a little marker flag flapping around your butt.

runs small

great jacket but, yeah it runs small !! Im in an XL and normally a large, I'm 5'10' 175 lbs. Just wore it on a Gran Fondo 105 mile ride in lots of rain, Good also for the price. Was it 100% water proof, I stayed dry but with a second semi rain jacket underneath this one. I'm riding LA to Boston in 2 weeks and bringing this jacket

Runs way to small

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

Runs way too small, per the size chart I am a large with a 41" chest. Ordered a XL still way to small, could not fit my arms in. I am muscular build type bigger arms. Other than that, looks like something I was looking for. Possible could block light rain and seems very packable folds up very small. Not sure a 3XL will fit.

Essential, versatile piece of kit

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

Super lightweight and packable, that's the number one thing here. Means I'm more likely to take it with me when there's even a chance of needing it.
For riding with cooler weather gloves on my fingers I did have to add a zipper pull lifted from elsewhere in my closet.
Do agree with Nate Morgan about the shoulders / underarms - they're a little tight. But I did size on the smaller side to avoid flapping. I was worried it would be uncomfortable pulling against my underarms, but I once I wore it on the bike I realized it's fine. (I'm 5'6", 135 lbs, 37.5" chest - got the Small).

Great fit--except for shoulders

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

6' 183 lbs. Ordered an XL, everything fit well except that the shoulder area binds. Would be an issue on longer rides. Got the Hot Pack Ultralight instead and it fits extremely well.

Essential kit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Adding a compactable jacket to your wardrobe is a must! The Hot Pack 5 fits easily in a rear pocket and does a great job at taking the edge off of the wind on a long descent. A big plus, the Hot Pack 5 does a great job at light rain protection.

Brett, does it flap when riding downhill?
