So Light it floats
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
I reviewed the Gore 1984 jacket made out of the same Shakedry material as this jacket. My one negative on that jacket is that the XXL version fit in the chest, but it was huge around my belly. The Ore jacket fixed that problem. It fits perfectly.
In the 1984 review I said that this material is a breathable as Windstopper, but it is also waterproof. I need to revise that statement. Yesterday I rode with my 7 Mesh Resistance jacket with Windstopper fabric, and today I road with the Ore jacket (because I was expecting rain that didn't come). The weather was about the same both days, and my base layer was about the same. I was much dryer with the Ore jacket at the end of the ride than the Resistance jacket. To be fair I didn't go as hard today, but I was almost completely dry when I arrived.
The XL is so compact and light that I don't even know it is in my pocket. I had long given up on waterproof fabrics, but I am a believer now. This thing is so breathable and light that it is the perfect jacket to bring along just in case the weather turns bad.
