Description

The tool you need for cold weather cycling.

Gore Bike Wear's Fusion Tool SO Jacket functions as either a single layer defense against cold weather on the bike, or as a casual jacket about town. Regardless of how you use it, the secret to its versatility is the Gore WindStopper Soft Shell fabric. In an overcrowded market of purpose-specific clothing, it's nice to know that you have something that works perfectly on the bike, and lets you blend in with the civilians when you're on foot.

Gore's Fusion Tool is looser fitting than its Xenon SO jacket, however, it still won't flap in the breeze. In fact, Gore still considers it a slim-fit jacket. But, even with the close fit, the Soft Shell still stretches and moves with your body. So, even if you layer underneath, you won't feel bound by the fabric. The sleeves are pre-articulated in order to accommodate a natural, relaxed bend at the elbows, and the tall fleece-lined collar keeps the elements from entering up top.

Due to the effectiveness of the WindStopper membrane, Gore has included zippered vents under the arms in order to give you the ability to moderate your temperature. Perhaps the only details that give the Fusion Tool jacket away as a cycling piece are the standard three pockets on the back. The outer two are angled down towards the outsides for easier access to your riding essentials from the saddle. There's also a zippered Napoleon pocket on the left breast and small cloth for cleaning your eyewear. The tail is cut a tad longer in order to accommodate your position on the bike, and the lower hem and sleeve cuffs are bound with a simple and comfortable Lycra band. Reflective elements on the shoulders, back, and forearms will also increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

The Gore Bike Wear Fusion Tool SO Jacket is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/graphite grey, Neon Yellow/black, and Varsity Green/black.

Bomb-Proof

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

Fusion Rocks (I am told!). Warm, windproof, comfortable, functional. Rode in 40F with 30mph winds, and was warm, didn't feel any wind.

Zips were a little difficult to operate (without gloves!). Pockets are generous in size, and placed sensibly on the jacket.

Could use more reflective elements, especially for roadies.

Gore normally runs small, so he chose a 'XL' for a 5'9" 185lb frame. Fit described by Gore as a "Comfort Fit"...could maybe have worked a 'L' instead. But this gives room for layering...a Great Mtn. bike jacket. For you 'roadies', suggest ordering according to chart...don't size up with this one.

Fantastic venting, both under arm (which goes almost down to the rib area!) All zips have this open mesh behind for additional venting as needed.

Great, ample pockets that are easily accessible. Fairly good reflective hits...could have used more (like the Xenon line up has).

Pictured here with Gore's Fusion 2.0 Windstopper Soft Shell Pants. Excellent Combo.

Size here is a XL on a 5'9" frame. Fit describes as "Comfort" by Gore. Usually Gore's tends to run small, but in this instance, a 'L' may have worked. The 'XL' leaves room for layering and movement...fine for mtn biking.

Exceeds expectations

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We are just completing a beast of a winter here in ND, and I have been commuting by bicycle. Awhile back On a training ride, I made a layering mistake that I didn't notice until I turned around to ride 15 miles into a cold north headwind. I was sweating and the wind instantly went to work. I felt lucky to get home and immediately went looking for a way to prevent this from happening ever again. I am frugal and often skeptical of the prices demanded for so-called performance clothing. Well, I shelled out the money and now a couple of months of daily rides and use later, I think this Gore Bike Wear jacket is the best money I ever spent. It has great venting for adjusting to conditions. It stops the wind in its tracks. With the right combo of merino t-shirt and micro fleece, I can wear it down to 5 degrees and still be comfortable. After mountain biking, the dirt and mud splatters on the outside wipe off easily. It is magic in terms of resisting odor. I found the size fit true: I got a Medium and I am 5'10, 155lb. It conforms well to my body when I just have a t-shirt underneath but allows for more layers if I need them. Great pocket locations, too. In a world where I am too often disappointed with what I get for my money, this is one garment that makes me smile every time I reach for it and that will no doubt standup over the long haul.

Excellent Jacket

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

This is the first year I have decided to go MTB also in winter. I had one windstopper Jacket that I used and I was a bit cold.
So I bought this one.
I liked it a lot from the moment I received it. The craftsmanship is really great. the colour (I have the green) is quite nice.
It really fits nice.
I used it several times but because winter was very warm in Austria I did not want to hurry with my review before a real test.
Last week-end it was cold at -10C (14F) and I went out using it. I had a Icebreaker first layer and one tricot underneath.
Going up I could really feel I get very warm. Going down at about 35 - 40k/h I was amazed by how warm I was feeling my body. My hands and my face were cold, but the jacket was really protecting me from the cold wind.
When going out at 0C to 7C I take it off when climbing and put it back on when going downhill
Highly recommended!

Fantastic, Very Warm Biking Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Excellent jacket, nice and slim fit. I could fit into a medium (6'0" 175lbs) but it was very snug and I bought this for cold, nasty winter conditions so I bought the large. Extremely warm, doesn't let wind in, you heat up quickly as you are riding. Wouldn't recommend for over 40F days. I ride it with an underarmour winter thermal under layer and you are perfectly temperatured.
