That spinning green blob that the I-only-got-a-job-because-I'm-hot weather person is spewing about doesn't really mean a thing when you have a Gore Bike Wear Contest SO Jacket. Cycling-specific features combined with industry-leading technologies ensure you can pedal comfortably through conditions that keep others gazing, eyes half-closed and mouth breathing at a poorly-produced news source.

It is still summer here in Texas, and will be until November, but that said here goes my review. The Jacket ,like all Gore products, is very well made, but the fit is more Euro than American so be ware. I am 5'10/195lbs and the XXL fits perfect. Usually I wear a large to an extra large. I have never had a bad experiences with any of their products, and I have gotten many seasons out of them so ride happy in any conditions.
Wanted to start riding sooner this year, need a jacket for 40-45 degree rides and handle the wind. This Gore jacket is great - fits great, blocks wind, looks sharp and has the needed pocket in the back.
