Description

Block and breathe.

The lame thing about some waterproof, windproof jackets is that they feel cardboardy, they don’t breathe much, and they don’t fit in your one-small-pocket hydration-pack. The GORE Bike Wear Oxygen Jacket is different.

  • Gore-Tex Paclite Shell blocks wind and water, breathes, and packs down super-small for easy carrying
  • Gore-Tex stretch inserts on back and arms boosts comfort when you’re in cycling posture
  • Tight fit for zero excess bulk
  • Pre-shaped elbows boost arm-comfort
  • Extra-long back extends coverage

Good, but......

Wore this for the first time in a steady, but light rain, and it does what it's suppose to; keeps the rain out, however, I was pretty wet on the inside from sweat. The arms on the interior were completely wet from top to bottom, and this was with the main zipper down a bit and the arm velcro tabs open. I had an extremely thin merino shirt on, and, this too was soaked.

The fit is good, however, I would put in some under arm pit zips to allow for more breathability. A pocket or two would be nice, as well.

Does the back fold up at all?
And can I...

Does the back fold up at all?
And can I attach a hood onto the collar?

Responded on

The back does not fold up, but the fit of the jacket is such that it wraps around your back side very snugly when on the bike.

The collar should have a locking velcro patch that will work with Gore Bike Wear's Universal Gore-Tex Hood: http://www.realcyclist.com/gore-bike-wear-universal-hood

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the answer.
I was asking about the back because I'm wondering if these can be worn casually with jeans. Would they look kinda funny?
And could you confirm about the locking velcro patch? Should? Or Will?
Thanks!

Very good rain jacket

Most important, it breathes well and doesn't let rain in. It mostly stops cold wind as well. I used in on infamous BTC 2011 Trail Ridge ascent and was comfortable in a blizzard. End of story.

Fit Info

I see many questions about the fit of this jacket, so let me provide some data for you. I am 5'8", 160#, 40" chest, and normally wear Large in GBW. The Oxygen in Large fits me perfectly. It is form-fitting, as expected, but not uncomfortable. I can get a baselayer and longsleeve jersey underneath just fine, but if I wanted more I might be looking at a size up. The tail is quite long, covering my entire posterior. Front is short, just to the waist, but in the riding position this is all perfect.

I'd prefer a high-visibility color like...

I'd prefer a high-visibility color like Lemon, but it isn't offered at the moment. Are these the colors for 2011, or will more be available? Is the orange high-vis? Thanks.

Responded on

I don't see any hi-vis colors for 2011 but if you like the lemon and are looking for a PacLite shell try the Countdown, Path, or Cosmo jacket.

Can you recommend something similar...

Can you recommend something similar (lightweight, waterproof, packable, tight fitting shaped race jacket) but with a bit longer front (this one even in the xl leaves my midriff bare. i'm 196cm tall and skinny) and a pocket or two?

thank you

Responded on

The closest option might be the Contest 2.0 AS Jacket: http://www.realcyclist.com/gore-bike-wear-contest-2.0-as-jacket-mens.

It is slightly looser fitting, though still cut for road riding. However, it is a little longer in the front.

It packs into it's own rear pocket and fits into a jersey pocket.

It is not Gore-Tex, so not guaranteed to keep you dry, but is full Windstopper Active Shell, so it is very water resistant.

I hope that helps,
Robert, Gore Bike Wear

I'm looking for a close-fitting rain jacket...

I'm looking for a close-fitting rain jacket and the Oxygen caught my eye. I'm a bit concerned about getting the correct size though. None of my local shops carry the Oxygen, although I have tried on the more generously cut Path and Countdown. A small seems like the right size in both of those, but the chest measurement of the Oxygen has me worried with its supposedly 'tight' fit (the other measurements are spot on per the sizing chart). I'm 5'9", 140lbs with a 36" chest. Given the advice here to choose a size up, what are my chances of fitting into a small?

Responded on

I'm 6' even, 168 lbs with about a 40" chest and I can fit (snugly) into a Medium Oxygen. It does not leave a lot of room for layering, but it is a good close fit.

I would start with the small, I think you'll be OK... but worst case, you can exchange for a medium!

Hope that helps,

Best rain jacket

I bought this before a French Alps tour, and this jacket had the chance to shine when the sun wasn't. There were two days of significant rain during our tour with one heavily raining about 80% of the day. It was relatively warm even in the high mountains, so I could have climbed without a jacket and been OK quite honestly. Although being thoroughly soaked for the descents would have been interesting. I was blown away with how well this jacket breathed!! It was raining so hard (think sheets of water on the road) that I wore my Oxygen jacket while climbing two mountain passes - Col des Aravis & Cormet de Roselend - and was very comfortable. Never soaked with sweat nor with rain. The descents confirmed that this jacket could keep me warm, dry, and allow my sweat to evaporate at the same time. The jacket additionally has a great, bike-specific fit that was perfect for time in the saddle. A very worthwhile purchase that will surly get much more use over the coming years.

Just finished a 400km fleche ride this past weekend. It rained at least 80% of the 24 hour ride! This jacket performed flawlessly. Because of the tight fit, it is difficult to reach in a back pocket (of a jersey under the jacket) for food while riding. Fit was great in the riding position especially. I would buy it again. Consider a larger size when ordering.

what's the difference between the III model and IV model of this jacket?

Responded on

The face fabric of the jacket changed from the III to the V. There's no difference in cut, material placement etc

how small does this pack down and would it function as a decent winter jacket if i were to wear a thermal base layer and jersey under it?

Responded on

It comes with a separate stuff sack which the jacket can fit into...when in the sack, the sack is about 2" longer than a standard Blackberry and the thickness is about the size of 3 Blackberry's stacked on top of one another....it will easily fit into your jersey pocket and I have also seen riders fit it into an empty bottle cage

apparently their wearing the oxygen

care to confirm Kolosek?

Responded on

While they maybe Oxygen jackets, I would say that they probably aren't Oxygen jackets as the Oxygen has a much more form fit to it and these jackets seem to be buffeting in the wind

This is definitely an Oxygen jacket - he ordered them for himself through his shop in Austin

This is the rain jacket that Lance and Astana used this past season.

Is this jacket actually waterproof? I know gore-tex is, but what about the zippers and seams?

Responded on

This jacket is made of GORE-TEX® which comes with the "Guaranteed to keep you dry" promise. In order to offer this guarantee, the seams are sealed and the zipper is waterproof (like the Oxygen jacket) or is protected with a placket.
