Simple jacket, not too tight,perfect for trail riding and could easily do double duty on the road. Really love the windstopper fabric (soft, a bit of heft but not too much) and the thumb loops. Only issue with gore is sizing as it changes drastically accross the various products. Not a bad thing,just need to know how each fits differently eg. I originally bought the phantom which is meant to me a tighter jacket and the xxl felt tight in places (shoulders) and too big in others (hem length) whereas a large in the countdown fit me perfectly (I'm 5 11 and 180lbs). However backcountry has the best return service so there isn't much of a downside if you get it wrong.
