Whatever the weather.
Whether you're anticipating sloppy trails under fall foliage or damp roads during spring spins, the Gore Bike Wear Power Trail Lady Gore-Tex Jacket is built to handle the exertions of cycling when on days when inclement weather ensures you'll have the trail or shoulder to yourself. Few names enjoy the reputation of Gore-Tex, and the Power Trail Lady Jacket represents the brands most complete take on women's cycling protection.
In the hierarchy of membranes constituting the Gore-Tex family, the Gore-Tex Active membrane included here is ideal for cycling in foul weather because it places an emphasis on breathability over hard-wearing durability. That means it may not be equal to the abuse of a weeklong camping trip but it will keep you drier and more comfortable during high-intensity efforts in the saddle. It's added breathability comes courtesy of its 2.5-layer construction instead of standard Gore-Tex's 3-layer design.
Regardless of the loss of a layer and that extra breathability, Gore-Tex Active is still windproof and water-resistant, so it keeps the elements out while keeping your microclimate free of the clammy internal moisture that accumulates with other membranes. The membrane's weather protection is extended by the jacket's hood, which features multi-direction adjustability in order to tailor it to whatever shenanigans the wind and rain are playing on a given day.
The cuffs are shaped to maintain coverage in the saddle, and a full-length draft flap under the zipper demonstrates Gore's commitment to leaving no potential point of wintery ingress untended. An adjustable draw cord at the waist seals the jacket against road spray and trail splatter, and reflective details help keep you visible in low-light, overcast conditions to fellow travelers. The jacket is finished with two zippered hand pockets and an additional zippered pocket on the sleeve.
