OK, so no doubt Gore products work as advertised and does the job better than the competition. At least in my humble opinion. However, this jersery is SUCH A PAIN to take off. Why? Because the material doesn't stretch well. After a long hard ride and I am a bit sweaty, taking this off is just as equal to a hard ride haha Looks great, fits great, feels great and blocks the wind keeping the rider warmer in colder temps. I just can't recommend this due to the fact that taking the jersey off is a nightmare. Eventually, I'll end up ripping the seams :( Solution? Turn it into a half-zip using sealed zippers to block the wind. I realize this adds weight but unless they figure out a better material that has better 4-way stretching this thing sucks.

Definitely a cycling-oriented base layer, the windstopper membrane covers the front of the shirt, and the back is a more traditional stretchy breathable mesh. The main issue I have with the shirt is that the windstopper material, while it performs well, has some undesirable qualities. It's quite loud/swooshy, and doesn't have very much stretch to it, so even though the shirt fits tightly, the fabric bunches as forms these awkward rolls/accordion flaps when you bend your arms or twist with the garment on. Kinda odd looking. The interior of the shirt is not the most comfortable, and next-to-skin comfort is definitely important if you're going to call this a base layer. I haven't experienced any real chafing yet, but I'm never exactly excited to pull this shirt on. Functionally, it definitely gets the job done. It helps cut the wind a lot, and paired with a mid-weight thermal jersey I've felt quite warm down to about 45*F/7*C. It's also very lightweight for how much warmth it provides. The back panels help keep you from overheating, but you obviously wouldn't want to throw this on for sunny ride on a warm day. The sizing definitely runs small, I'm 6'1/165lbs and the Large is very fitted, and I definitely would be bummed if I bought a Medium. Be sure to check the size chart - the sizing of the shirt is accurate to the chart, but the sizes themselves are smaller than most Americans might be used to.

Thank you for writing such a thorough review. Very helpful.
