Sportful Fiandre Light Norain Top Jacket Review

Sportful Fiandre Light Norain Top

Always ones for a race-oriented fit, Sportful’s Fiandre Light doesn’t disappoint. Its highly stretchable fabric means it’ll fit close over a thermal jersey (or a base layer on milder days) and being a soft fabric, as opposed to a shell, shouldn’t flap.

This combined with seven sizes means there should be no excuse for poor fitting. Differing slightly from others here, Fiandre is designed for light rain conditions so it uses Windshield protection over the shoulders, upper arms and across the front, and then NoRain fabric on the back and forearms, which promises water repellency along with breathability.

A 25cm side zip provides easy access to your jersey pockets and as the name suggests, it doesn’t exactly weigh a lot at 195g for our large size.

Verdict: 8/10

A superb lightweight performance softshell though it won’t fend off the heaviest showers.
