A layer-accommodating fit for the wet months.

Fall presents a dilemma. The cooler weather and variable conditions can limit the time we're able to spend in the saddle, but cycling under a canopy of changing leaves on singletrack, enjoying the crisp morning air on your favorite road loop, or picking up new-crop squash at the farmer's market on a bright Saturday morning are among our greatest cycling pleasures. Fortunately, Gore Bike Wear has us covered with the Element Gore-Tex AS Jacket. You can find it at the intersection of price, layering, and functionality and hanging up in many of our closets.

The Element AS Jacket is a true 2.5-layer construction, which combines an outer layer that carries the color and reflective details, a Gore-Tex layer, and an inner, protective scrim that only really counts as half a layer since it's integrated in the Gore-Tex fabric. The Gore-Tex is the important part, as that's where the moisture and thermal management goes down: water out, warmth in. Gore intentionally adds the modifier "durably" to waterproof and windproof because this jacket won't lose its resistances over the course of a season's use and/or in the wash. Gore doesn't make fabric that lasts for years of intense use and cleaning that would strip other manufacturer's offerings of their protective properties.

The jacket's fit varies from Gore-Tex's slimmer Power Jacket in that it's generous enough for some substantial thermal layering, so you can layer up when the temperature drops. It features two zippered front pockets for easy saddle-bound access, hook-and-loop fasteners for an optional hood (sold separately), adjustable cuffs, and a cord-adjustable hem. Reflective highlights include piping for your collar bones, upper arms, and lower back, plus a Gore logo at the back hem to make you as visible as possible in low-light conditions. The 2.5-layer construction means it's as lightweight and compactable as a waterproof jacket can be.

The Gore Bike Wear Element Gore-Tex AS Jacket - Women's is available in six sizes ranging from X-Small to XX-Large in the colors Black/lumi orange, Fresh Green/neon yellow, Jazzy Pink/blaze orange, Neon Yellow/white, Ruby Red/lumi orange, and Waterfall/ice blue.

Perfect jacket for a wet ride

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I love the fit, the color, the fact that this jacket is windproof and waterproof. It saves me on wet and windy rides.After reading the other reviews I bought the jazzy pink with an orange zipper in a large instead of my usual medium size. The larger size allows for an extra layer under the jacket and I still have room for ample movement. I will wear this jacket for years.

Weird Fit and missing chest pocket

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L

I expected this to be a great fit and failed to notice the non-existant back pocket or armpit vents.
The chest is too tight, but the rest of the jacket fit fine. I bought a large but I'm not that well endowed and it was an oddly tight fit.
I really missed the chest pocket for a phone or mp3 player, and disliked the front pockets. I want easy access back pockets like most jerseys and I also failed to notice the lack of armpit zippers for extra ventilation. Living in the rainy northwest, those armpit zippers are essential for our varied weather.

A bit small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I think this is a great light weight jacket for being fully waterproof. The size chart indicated I would fit an XS. It fits great through the shoulders, chest and waist but was a little too snug in the hips, especially if I want to carry a lot of stuff in my back pockets.

Not what I was looking for

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

This jacket is not a lightweight stuff in your jersey pocket raincoat. That's what I was looking for, Gore does make one but it isn't this one. If you want a real, solid raincoat for riding (it's raining when you leave the house, it's still raining when you get back 2 hours later), this is it. The medium was a little tight across the chest (I am large busted) so I would not have been able to layer under it.
