Race-day worthy.

Your training doesn't quit when the weather goes south, and neither should your jacket. The Gore Wear C7 Gore-Tex Shakedry Jacket for Men is unrelenting, with complete water and wind protection for the harshest days, and minimal weight, so you can charge out of the garage and onto the pavement like it's race day on evenings that would have most of your friends resorting to tedious miles on the trainer in a dimly lit basement. This jacket not only performs above and beyond that of the normal rain shell, but packs down into a minuscule size, stash-able in your jersey back pocket for when the clouds clear, but it does so without costing you weight, with super lightweight construction that scales in at only 107-grams in size Large.

To keep you operating like a machine, the C7 Shakedry Jacket works with innovative membrane technology that skips out on an outer face fabric, and meets the elements head on with a Gore-Tex laminate that slices through headwinds, and prevents water from penetrating within. This membrane-first construction means that there's no fabric to hold even the least bit of water before it rolls off, or to add weight, resulting in a lighter jacket, and more water repellency. As the name would have you guessing, a simple rustle will get the water shedding off of you and onto the ground. To back the membrane, Gore uses an incredibly thin and lightweight polyamide inner shell, giving the membrane something to hold onto without adding bulk. The construction, while resilient to water and wind, is not fond of hydration bags and backpacks, as it doesn't have a face fabric to take the stress off of the membrane, so keep this in mind if you're planning a ride into the mountains, or skipping your water bottles that day.

The C7 Shakedry Jacket is cut slim, tailored for a cycling position, and contours to your body so there is little room for excess fabric flapping in the wind, and just enough space for a thermal jersey and base layer underneath. This exceptional fit is ideal for training and race day alike, as it won't add much resistance to your efforts, allowing you to capitalize on your watts, instead of catching wind like a sail. It features fine tuned, but minimalist detailing, with a high collar that is cut to sit comfortably against your neck and keep out the elements, and a full-length zipper with lockable pull for dialing in your ventilation if the day brings both wet and warm weather. Its hem is reinforced, and backed with elastic, so it sits snug against your waist and won't move when you're out of the saddle hammering up a climb, and features a drop tail in the back to keep you covered from wheel spray and rain.

Amazingly light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great piece of kit albeit expensive. So light it's a no brainer to take it whenever it threatens to rain. The left pocket is very small, so a larger phone won't fit.

I would have gotten the more reflective version but that was even more expensive still.

Fit is excellent. I'm a skinny 5'7", 138lbs and I ordered small. Form fitting with very little excess fabric.

Amazingly light

We appreciate the review, Dwight

Keep them coming!

What's up with the Zipper?

    Bought this in October of '18. Performance was great...blocks out cold wind, waterproof and somewhat breathable. Four months of use and the darn zipper becomes progressively more difficult to use. The bottom portion began splitting and unzipping. Who has the time or desire to stop pedaling and rezip to block out the cold over and over again. Jeez, what an expensive jacket to have such a poor zipper. I contacted customer support and never received a response. I made my own repairs at the risk of completely destroying the tiny zipper. Thanks for the non help , I will seek business elsewhere.

    Stay dry in the wettest conditions.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I tested out this product in the TROMP Gore-tex event. I wore this along with the Gore Wear C3 Gore-tex active pants and the Gore Wear C3 overshoes product. I wore a size Large, it fit me well. I am 6'0 175 pounds. I was on a stationary bike with a shower faucet dumping water on me for 30 seconds straight. It was an athletic contest who could pedal the farthest distance on the stationary bike in 30 seconds. I was pedaling as hard and fast as I could. It was easy for me to move around comfortably with the product. All of my clothes underneath the jacket and pants were completely dry after the 30 seconds of getting pounded by water. It was pretty incredible. It is completely waterproof. It is a perfect jacket for hiking, trail running, and biking. I am planning on getting one of these for my future adventures.

    Expensive price, cheaply made

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a total ripoff for $279.
    Cheap zippers always get stuck - ALWAYS - making it hard or impossible to open or close them while moving.
    And they're placed in confusing / out of the way places. I can't open the vent zippers under the armpits without stopping, and even while stopped it's much easier to just take the jacket off than it is to sit there and wrestle with the darn things,
    The zipper for the pocket you might put a phone in on the left chest - that zipper is right next to the zipper that opens the jacket. I haven't yet found the zipper pull for the jacket opening on the first try.
    Don't buy this

    good fit, keeps you dry

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    At about 5'7" (170cm) and 130+/- lbs (60 kg) I ordered this jacket in medium based on the recommendation to size up. It fits well...close-fitting and no flapping but not skin tight. I might have been able to fit into the small but my arms are longer than normal for my height so medium works in that regard. If I were buying the stretch version I would try a small first and exchange if it was too tight. I also expect the medium to be more flexible in cooler weather when I've got more layers under it. I've used it only once in the rain and it performs as advertised. Visually it's a very nice-looking jacket.
