Sportful Fiandre Pro Medium Jacket
The Sportful Fiandre Pro Medium Jacket is an exceptionally good wind- and water-resistant option for keeping you comfortable on rides in middling temperatures, especially when the weather can't decide what it's going to do.
As with the standard Sportful Fiandre Pro, the Polartec NeoShell fabric is the real star of the show here, used for everything but that back panel, the cuffs, waistband and inner collar. Put another way, it's the red stuff in the pictures.
Here you get Sportful's lighter NoRain material round at the back for increased breathability and suitability for slightly warmer temperatures.
Sportful suggests the Fiandre Pro Medium Jacket is suitable for 10°C and upwards. We'd say you could comfortably use it when the temperature is a couple of degrees below that with a long sleeve thermal baselayer. It doesn't offer deep insulation for winter use, though
At the top end, you could wear the Fiandre Pro Medium Jacket in temperatures up to maybe 15-16°C with a short sleeve, lightweight baselayer underneath.
The Fiandre Pro Medium is cut slim, and it sits close on both the body and the arms. This means there's no annoying and inefficient flapping. There's a lot of stretch in the NeoShell fabric and there's even more in the NoRain, but if you're of a heavier build you might want to try before you buy.
The Sportful Fiandre Pro Medium Jacket is made from excellent fabrics and the construction is similarly impressive. The result is a top performance in middling temperatures, especially when conditions are changeable and you're likely to need some sort of protection from light rain and/or road spray.
