Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own several different Gore Bike Wear windstopper items. Mainly to mix and match as the weather turns. On the east cost we can have huge 30 degree swings in a day sometimes making dressing for long winter rides a challenge sometimes. when I don't know what to wear I always go with a wool baselayer and this jersey. Keeps wind out but there is no insulation on it. Gore Stuff is all top notch and it is extremely durable as well, the orange is great for mountain biking somewhere like a national forest where you might encounter backcountry hunters. Most brands I use a large jersey but can do XL in Gore Jerseys.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used Eggbeaters for years because I had them on 5 Different bikes, and well when they broke it was easier to buy one pair of those than switch all bikes to something else. 2 years ago I broke multiple pairs in a short span time so enough was enough, everything went to Shimano. Not one break yet and I ride a little of everything including some rocky stuff where I have had a decent bit of pedal strikes. Also do endurance races, put in big training miles, and do some bad weather riding so they have really been put through the wringer.

The only time I miss them is really winter when I get snow Ice build up, mud has not been a big issue but I try to avoid it when possible.

This is one of my goto winter pieces for sure. I bought it for layering for mountain biking and it does great at that being windstopper fabric. However I find myself using it for almost everything but extreme cold. For riding great for me anywhere from low 40s down layering differently lower I go. With a merino baselayer and thermal jersey I have used it in extreme cold, other times might just go wicking baselayer and no real additional thermal layer. Off the bike I tend to use it for short walks, runs, where I just want a little bit of warmth and the wind off me, especailly if I want head and neck covered tightly, I can still fit a thin wool beanie underneeth it. Also since the fit is made to go under helmet I can still use a regualr headlamp with the jacket.
It is not super slim fit like Gore's road bike jackets which I also own but comfortable with a thin sweater, too slim through the armas and with the cycling cut short up front with a longer or thicker sweater.

Theseare the shorts I used for my endurace riding last year on the mtn bike did great. De Marchi shorts in general jsut do it for me. They are a very breathable thin material though so if you go down they may rip, it happened recently and I will need to get another pair at some point, as far as fit they are snug on me at 5'8 175lbs in large not overly tight but snug, I have done endurace races where I was in them for proabbly close to 14 hours.

So i was looking between the xenon so and tool so. The tool was the original choice but ended up with the xenon so because of the deal i found on one of the backcountry sister sites. thanks BC. Only slight concern I had with the xenon so vs. tool is how the pre-formed arms and if would be a tighter fit in the chest. The xl worked great and I am 5'7 180 with a wider chest/shoulders than a lot ot cylcists. Only thing with this coat is I wish I would have brought it sooner.

Also have a alp-x paclite jacket and think the world of gore bike wears products they just plain work AWESOME
