We dislike nothing about riding in the fall beneath canopies of foliage, along colorful roads or autumn smelling dirt trails except for the erratic weather. For anything that may blow your way, the Gore Bike Wear Element Gore Tex Men's Jacket is what you need to stay prepared. The Element Gore Tex AS Jacket is a true 2. 5 layer construction, which combines an outer layer that carries the color and reflective details, a Gore Tex layer, and an inner, protective scrim that only really counts as half a layer since it's integrated in the Gore Tex fabric. The Gore Tex is the important part, as that's where the moisture and thermal management goes down: water out, warmth in. Gore intentionally adds the modifier durably to waterproof and windproof because this jacket won't lose its resistances over the course of a season's use andor in the wash. The jacket's fit varies from Gore Tex's slimmer Power Jacket in that it's generous enough for some substantial thermal layering underneath, so you can accommodate drops in temperature. It features two zippered front pockets for easy saddle bound access, hook and loop fasteners for an optional hood sold separately, adjustable cuffs, and a cord adjustable hem. Reflective highlights include piping for your collar bones, upper arms, and lower back, plus a Gore logo at the back hem to make you as visible as possible in low light conditions. The 2. 5 layer construction means it's as lightweight and compactable as a waterproof jacket can be. The Gore Bike Wear Element Gore Tex AS Men's Jacket is available in five sizes, from X Small to XX Large, and in the colors Brilliant Blue, Fresh Green, Neon Yellow, Red, and Black.
