A long-running favorite.

Gore Bike Wear’s Phantom 2.0 SO jacket is consistently one of our best-selling winter cycling jackets. Why? In a word, versatility. Gore’s WindStopper membrane, sandwiched between two layers of fabric, makes riding in cold air pretty much like riding in less-cold air. It blocks the chilly air from entering the jacket, which allows your core to heat the inside of the jacket. And, if the day’s not all that chilly, zip the sleeves off. One of our favorite things about the Phantom is the short-sleeve version. It’s ideal for those shoulder-season days where full sleeves are too much, but a baselayer and jersey isn’t enough.

  • WindStopper membrane
  • Zip-off sleeves
  • Three rear pockets
  • Reflective elements
  • Stretch panels

Excellent Wind Protection

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large (US)

Like all things GoreTex performance is excellent - completely blocks wind - haven't tried it in rain, but perfectly comfortable in 40 degree weather with 20+ mph winds

Size was way off

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

I can fit into any XXL jersey but the GORE product was not even close to fitting. If your a big guy, this brand is not for you.

It's soooo baggy, it's not even funny...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

I am 5-10 and 130 pounds, i.e., roadie build. I knew that Gore products tend to fit on the larger side - I own a few in size small that I wear when I don't want race fit tight.

I was looking for an orange winter riding jacket and thought this might fit the bill (and a VERY reasonable price). After reading the other reviews here on sizing I thought that size Small would fit.

I couldn't have dreamed how wrong I was. This jacket is ENORMOUS, a sail in the wind, a wearable tent. I can wear this over my winter coat. NOT a cycling jacket for me. Back it goes.
Also, the 'blaze orange' is not a particularly vibrant, visible orange.

Gore never fails

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XXL

Bought this in preparation for the winter.
With it being summer and all I can't give a performance review(that'll be at a later time) but overall fit, build, and design are amazing.

I wear a 2X in the Oxygen jersey and it was a perfect fit. The back stretch panels provide a good range of flexibility and it limits the actual windstopper material from stretching. But of course the beauty is in the sleeves:never have to worry whether a jacket will be too much and once it does warm up the sleeves come off and have a short sleeve jersey! I expect that a good sleeveless base layer and the Phantom will suffice in 40+ weather. Can't wait to try this out in a few months.

Also for reference: 45"-46" chest and 38" waist. Since sizes for us big guys is always a guessing game online.

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.

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.

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.

    No, no flapping.

    After wearing this for two winters, my one complaint is that it holds in funk more than any other cycling gear I own... Even with special detergent, Downy Unstoppables, and a bit of bleach, it still stinks up pretty quickly. But it still keeps me warm and dry. And I always have plenty of space around me in the peloton.

    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!

    • 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.
