Though it's got "Light" right there in the title, Sportful's Fiandre Light WS Jacket is the most insulated of the Fiandre line, placing it at the top of Sportful kit that we use for cold (35 - 50 degrees Fahrenheit) rides in winter. It's combination of warmth, wind and waterproofing, and breathability mean it's well suited for long hours of low-intensity base miles and intervals alike; however, the jacket may be too warm during hard efforts when the thermometer gets up into the mid-50s, so consider a lighter option for late-spring hill repeats. (Fair warning: You might miss the extra protection on the way back down, though.) The jacket is, essentially, a light winter jacket, and we find that combining it with the right thermal base layer lets it cover the gap from November through February. Gore's Windstopper 4 Way Light fabric is the key to the Fiandre Light WS's versatility. It's windproof, waterproof, and breathable--not surprising considering it says "Gore" on it--and it also stretches more than a traditional shell, so Sportful can cut the jacket in a race-worthy fit. The fit is further complemented by a lighter panel of Sportful's DWR-treated NoRain thermal material between pockets and shoulder blades, which enhances stretch, breathability, and temperature regulation without sacrificing water-resistance. The coverage extends in all directions with a tall, ergonomic collar, an extended rear hem, and elastic cuffs that clamp down on gloves' wrist cuffs to eliminate gaps.

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.
