    I really like my Endura Helium.


    It’s not quite apple-sized, but it packs up small enough to be stuffed in my Topeak Wedge with my tools and a tube.

    It’s also considerably better quality than the ultra-packable “poly bag with sleeves” jackets (Pakajak!), fits nicely and has nice features like off-centre zip, reflectives, media pocket and a high neck.


    Montane featherlight velo.

    Endura pakajak here – does the job well

    +1 for the Montane. You need the H2O version to get waterproofness.


    +2 on the Montane. Had mine about a year and the color has run from putting in the washing machine but it works a treat.
    Keeps me dry but you have to keep moving, or layer up to keep the heat in.

    I’ve got a Montane Singletrack and its very good.

    Slightly heavier than the Velo for a bit more tear resistance but still very light and packs down really small

    ok thanks whats the sizing like on montane? im usually a 36-38 inch chest, gore stuff is my usual choice and usually a medium in that brand, but they dont offer such a small packable jacket

    will have a look at the pakajack too, like i said i dont mind the thin material of the pocket rocket, its a great jacket, just fits me terribly


    Montane Singletrack here. Possibly slightly bigger than apple sized but certainly does the job. It’s a snug but not tight fit and long in the body and arms.

    Similar sizing to Gore – I have mediums in both.


    I’m a 38″ chest and usually take medium (Gore Path in medium is fine). I’ve got a featherlight velo in large and this is a comfortable fit (on top of lycra). Definitely not too big.

    ive had a altura pocket rocket for a few months now, and it just doesnt fit me right, ive only used it about 3 times in emergency rain, and it just rides up on me at the front, this is a size medium too! im usually a small….ive tried the large as well and again its still just riding to high at the front and generally quite ill fitting for my gangly features 🙁

    so what else is there about? in prinicipal i love the pocket rocket, its very very light, packs up to the size of an apple, and is exxxxxxtremely waterproof

    any ideas?

    ps any one wanna buy a 3 ride old pocket rocket black in medium 😉

    I’d be interested in your jacket.

    I’ve a Castelli Sottile that packs into a jersey pocket. I’ve used it a few timed in the rain, and I haven’t boiled in the bag, even though I looks as if you would. I’ve also used it as an extra layer for early evening chill, when it also worked fine.
