From long-sleeves to short-sleeves in two quick zips.

When it comes to winter, you need all of the protection that you can get. But, what if that go-to winter jacket could also keep you covered in the fall and spring without causing heat exhaustion? A novel idea, indeed. However, Gore already beat us to it with its Phantom 2.0 SO Jacket. When the weather permits, you can wear it as a full jacket, but while in more temperate conditions, the sleeves are removable for the perfect amount of coverage. One jacket to rule them all.

To provide the utmost protection from the elements, Gore constructed its Phantom 2.0 jacket from a sophisticated blend of fabrics. Each region has been thoughtfully considered, and because of this, the Phantom 2.0 is equal parts protection, comfort, and flexible. Starting with the body of the jacket, Gore used its patented Windstopper Soft Shell membrane. As its name suggests, this material makes the jacket 100% windproof. However, the name doesn't allude to its water-resistance or high breathability. That's right, with the comfort and weight of a mid-layer, and the protection of a shell, this material will keep you dry from both the rain and your own sweat. And while the material is extremely malleable, Gore also incorporated integrated stretch panels into the Phantom 2.0. This permits a full range of movement, whether you're stretched over the hoods or reaching down into the drops.

If that's not enough stretch for you, Gore enabled you to remove the raglan-cut sleeves. But, that would be an extreme measure, as the detachable sleeves primarily add to the jacket's versatility. Even better, when the sleeves are removed, the Phantom displays soft, protective short sleeves that guarantee coverage from the elements. Now, you can stretch the Phantom 2.0 out over multiple seasons.

Going even further into protective design features, Gore included a zippered underflap at the rear hem to protect you from wheel-spray on wet days. And while this protects you from the weather, Gore also took steps to protect you from the hazards on the road. To do this, the jacket has been given reflective elements throughout to increase your visibility in low-light conditions.

To keep the Phantom from shifting, Gore included wear-resistant, elastic bindings on the sleeve hems and bottom hem. This particularly comes in handy when the jacket's three slanted rear pockets are loaded with all of your ride essentials.

The Gore Bike Wear Phantom 2.0 SO Jacket is available in five sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Apple Gree/black, Azur Blue/black, Kiwi/black, Neon Yellow/black, Navy Blue/black, Red/black, Splash Blue/black, Vibrant Orange/black, White/black, and Black.

great jacket!

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

Finally bought one of these jacket after several years of hearing how great they are from the guys in my riding group and seeing how many folks out there have them. Got it on a 50% off end of year close out special so the price was right and I think it's awesome! Worn it in the upper 30's with a short sleeve wicking base layer; in the 40's during a light rain shower and in the 50s with moderate winds. It worked like a champ on every occasion. Only thing I haven't done yet is use it as a vest w/ the sleeves off. I'm w/ all the folks who think it fits true to size (bought a medium; 5'7" and 153 lbs. ) and also think it's very well made. I'm a year round road bike rider and average about 3000 miles per year.


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

Fits great when in riding position. Tested at 30 degrees eith wind and rain with just a base layer and I was plenty warm.

nice rain jacket but tight

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

I ordered online large, received in 2 days, but it did not fit way too tight. I never ever had an XL. I have 44 chest, 34 waist. Returned and got the replacement XL in 2 days. Perfect fit...comfortably snug. XL! amazing...their sizes are off. But nice garment.

Good jacket but tight in shoulder

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Xl

Pretty good jacket kept me warm in negative 30 degree but restricted my arm from doing a lot so I wasn't going to raise my hands in this jacket I don't think it's meant for people with big shoulders no worries just unzip the sleeves but it won't keep you warm in winter now oh well

Great into the 30's

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

I'm 5'7", 150 lbs and Medium fits nicely. Worn this into the mid 30's so far and keeps me plenty warm with a base layer.

Versatile Jacket That Works

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

I've owned a number of high end cycling jackets. I find Gore products to be durable, rugged and built to handle a range of weather challenges. This jacket has been one of my favorite pieces over the past two years. I ordered mine a size larger than I normally wear so that I had room to layer underneath and it's worked perfectly. Using a variety of underlayers this jacket works from mid 30's to 60 degrees. You can zip off the arms when the temps climb which is a nice feature. It's a great shoulder season piece minus the arms. I'd buy this jacket again in a heartbeat. Great value.

The right tool for the job.

  • Size Bought: small

Had a lighter jacket, Pearl Izumi. Climb up the hill, build up the sweat. Go down the hill and feel the piercing wind cut through you. End up sick. Gore Phantom jacket comes in. Put on a base layer, a jersey and the jacket. Climb up the hill, build the sweat. This time, no wind, no bother. It has three massive back pockets. I bought it for $100. I would buy it for $170. Its a product that makes the ride bearable and keeps me in good condition. Highly recommend. (I am 6'1'' and 150 lbs. small fights right, no silly sag around the abdomen)

Warm and Bright

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Received this jacket as a gift and have been pleased with it so far. I utilize it for occasional commuting because it is very brightly colored and has 360 degree reflectivity. The material is stretchy and comfortable and is cut to accommodate cycling positions.

The outstanding feature is the zip-off sleeves that turn the jacket into a vest. Although I seldom use this feature, it has come in handy when it gets too warm. Simply zip off the arms and tuck them in the jersey pockets in back.

Great for days below 40

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Sizing chart was perfect. Jacket performs great in cold weather below 40 degrees. On days above 40 the jacket can get a little warm. I never took the sleeves off, but this would probably make the jacket perform better on warmer days. Back pockets are deep and easily hold enough gear for long rides.

Poor Workmanship

    I loved this jacket the first few times I used it. It worked as advertised. However, after a couple of washes, the threading on the bottom of the jacket came apart. I had to take it to a seamstress to have it fixed. Not a big deal but still vert annoying. I was a huge fan of Gore's fabric, the Goretex and Windstopper. My recent experience with Gore Bikewear's apparels have made me question Gore's quality and workmanship. Maybe they should just stick to making the textile and let others manufacture the apparels. I am very disappointed with Gore Bikewear and will not buy another apparel from them. For around the same price, you can get the Castelli Gabba jacket. That jacket is much better and more stylish.

    Amazing jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have worn this in temperatures ranging from the mid 50s to the high 30s. The most amazing feature is that while it doesn't ever heat me up I also never get too cold wearing it, even with a fairly light base layer on. In other words, it does its job of keeping out wind, rain, and snow while breathing, so it always seems about the right temperature for riding. It fits tightly and doesn't flap around. I am 6'2" 175 and bought a L and it fits perfectly. The collar goes up high but is not too tight and if I put on my thin balaclava that feeds down into the collar I am warm through my neck and chin. The pockets seem to be positioned a bit differently than most of my summer jerseys, but I have gotten used to them. They are large enough to do their job. I do notice that if I unzip it much, it creates a bit of a sail, but that is the nature of all windbreaking jackets. I like that removing the sleeves reveals not a vest, but a short sleeve jacket--a nice touch. In short, this is a top-quality, well-made product. I wore it today in a driving hail/rain/snowstorm in the mid 30s and it kept my core warm and dry. Can't say as much for my gloves or tights....

    How snug is the large on you? Does it flap at all in the wind? Thanks.

    Saves my hide in winter

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I ride in winter. In weather that people stop and ask if I need a lift. This jacket is what makes winter riding possible. It has a tall collar which is awesome, especially how the back of it goes really far up the back of your neck, to your hair line, easily. The material itself does exactly what its supposed to do - keeps wind out, warmth in. The main center pocket is HUGE so on burly days I can fit another wind shell in there, plus backup gloves, which I use on extended mountain downhills. The zip off sleeves are fantastic and store in the center pocket easily, and the side zip pockets hold food, so its simple to access the things you need, even with bulky winter gloves. On in-between days, the jacket makes a great vest, and often I'll put the sleeves on just for mountain descents then take them back off for the next climb. Its the best winter cycling clothing item I've ever owned.


    One for all. Versatile and reliable WINDSTOPPER� Soft Shell jacket with zip off sleeves for the ambitious cyclist. Windproof jacket, jersey and vest all in one.

    Phantom 2 or Not 2

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    One of my favorite Gore garments in my closet. I bought an XL as I always size up with Gore. I wear a 17.5" x 34" dress shirt (42" chest) and this fits perfect. Enough room for a jersey or thermal underneath and boy is it warm. Live in NW and it has been the perfect go to for winter riding. Only minor issue is back of collar will bunch up a little due to how zippers line up. No biggy. My favorite thing is that I only need one cover up and if I get too warm I just shed the sleeves or unzip the front. Don't think about it. Just buy it

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This jacket is lightweight and does the job. I rode with this jacket in 20 degree weather with only a LS jersey underneath and was comfortable. Great fit, tight enough it doesn't cause a lot of drag but loose enough to allow you to have a couple layers of clothes.

    Quess BTXR must mean 20C with sleeves off. I ridden this in 20F with 2 base layers, works well.

    Outstanding in orange!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Got this jacket for my husband - he is 6'2, the XXL fits him nicely - not race tight, but loose enough to layer. He absolutely loves the jacket - great for cooler weather and great at blocking wind. He's worn the jacket down to 2C with a base layer.

    great jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I picked up one of these last year and really like it. With the right base layer you can go down to the upper 30's in temp no problem. It has nice wind proof properties and also water resistant. a cool feature too is the ability to zip off the sleeves when it warms up. Highly recommended.

    great jacket

    good jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Great fit, adjustable to weather by base layer choice, totally windproof

    "Go to" cold weather jacket/jersey

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Phantom SO is my "go to" for cold weather cycling, even XC skiing. I'm 5'7", 140 lbs and the small fits great. I'm not a fan of the tight Euro/road fit, and I have ample room for a heavier base layer, but it doesn't have a loose/flappy fit.

    I've ridden in the low 40's with just a thin long sleeve base layer and been more than comfortable. In the middle of winter I've XC skied on 20 degree days with this as my top layer.

    The Gore-Tex membrane breathes superbly, so you're never soaked in you own sweat, but still keeps out rain/weather and wind. The softshell material isn't water proof, but it will keep you dry enough to get home. The lining has great next to skin comfort. I don't really use the zip off sleeves, but have friends who use this as a weightier short sleeve jersey. The Phantom provides great "bang for the buck" compared to similar styled jackets from other manufacturers.

    great jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    wore this out riding with only t-shirt inside. Weather was OK, may high 40s but with a steady wind. This jacket did the job, kept me comfortable and warm. breathed very well. it is on the smaller/tight side, I usually wear a medium (5'9" 190 - 34 waist) and had to get an x-large.

    I had just the opposite experience with sizing this jacket, I thought it ran big. I'm 6' 190 34" waist and a medium fit nicely - snug but not restrictive.
