C5 Gore-Tex Shakedry Jacket
Whether it’s a certain time of the year or your current geographic location is just a little wetter than most, find solace in the Women's C5 Gore-Tex Shakedry Jacket from Gore Ware and prevent the weather from keeping you off the bike. You'll be covered during anything from a slight drizzle to pouring showers during training and racing. This revolutionary rain jacket features Gore-Tex Active material renowned for being lightweight, extremely breathable, and wind and waterproof. Shakedry technology provides an impenetrable barrier against the elements and the membrane doesn't require a face fabric further lightening the load and reducing the cold effect created by a saturated outer layer.
By placing the Gore-Tex membrane on the outside of the jacket where the face fabric normally resides, the Women's C5 Gore-Tex Shakedry Jacket keeps you protected from deluges without wetting out, which happens regularly when the face fabric's DWR finish wears off. This typically occurs with repeated use where dirt, oil, and grime can reduce the DWR's water-shedding ability. It is important to note that Gore does not endorse the use of a backpack or hydration pack as the material is slightly more fragile without a face fabric protecting it. The jacket features a concealed front and chest zipper pocket to keep essentials close at hand. A close-fitting collar, pre-shaped elbows, and female-specific fit keep you protected in the saddle while the reflective logos help you be better seen in low light conditions. Final details include adjustable cuffs to prevent water intrusion as well as vent zips at those cuffs to keep you cool when the sun pops out again.
