Good shell, but buy on sale

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I like wearing this jacket road, mtb or just walking around. It definitely is waterproof and windproof. Nice stowable hood. As with all shells though, when sweating it will stick to skin so consider a liner to stop that; Gore should have thought of vents - would have been perfect. Orderd a medium; I am 5'11" and somewhat broad-shouldered so at times the chest will be a bit tight but not enough to be a solid negative. It is a bit pricey for just a shell (why I bought it on sale) and lacking some basic features like only a single front pocket on the chest...c'mon. But there is a zipper pocket in back that can double as a semi-effective vent; also an un-snappable flap back there too to cover your butt. I expect to get a lot of use out of this.
Overall an attractive and good-performing shell, but wait 'til it's on sale.

I ride a road bike, but these seem design...

I ride a road bike, but these seem design for MTBs. Anybody wear these with a road bike?

Responded on

This jacket will also work great on the road bike. The drop tail will especially be useful on the road bike as a protectant against wheel-spray. The vented front is great if you're climbing and then have to descend - ventilate on the climb, close it up on the way down.

It's Gore-Tex and Guaranteed to keep you Dry.

hope that helps,
