Since it's equipped with a Gore Windstopper membrane, the Fiandre Light Wind Jacket is slightly warmer than the Fiandre Light NoRain jacket, but Sportful also credits it with a dip in water protection. Our experience with Windstopper is that it's more than equal to any precipitation worth riding a bike in, so we're admittedly a little skeptical of that claim. Basically, the Fiandre Light Wind Jacket is built for late fall/early spring--temperatures in the range of 40 - 50 degrees Fahrenheit when rain may or may not be falling. When the rain does fall, though, that Windstopper membrane is more than enough to keep you dry in everything but a deluge, and the added wind protection means you can combine it with thermal layers to ride well into the winter. Add in touches like four pockets, one of which secures with a zipper, and some strategically located NoRain panels for breathability, and the Fiandre Light Wind situates itself as a versatile jacket/jersey for racing and training in less-than-ideal conditions.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
