Weather or not.

Don't let the weather decide whether or not you ride. Suit up for inclement conditions with Gore Bike Wear's Alp-X 2.0 GT AS Jacket, and you'll enjoy multiple layers of windproof, water-resistant protection while splashing through a sprinkle on the road or puddle-ridden trails. Gore's Active Shell is also breathable, so the outside stays out and your microclimate doesn't get overrun with clammy moisture.

The Alp-X 2.0's fit is tailored for the saddle life, with stretch inserts at the arms and strategically distributed through the back to supplement your reach to the bars. The rear hem drops for additional protection from rooster tails, and both it and the cuffs cinch tight for a seal that's proof against the weather. The Alp-X 2.0 is finished with a removable hood and reflective details to help keep you visible on late or overcast returns.

  • Water- and windproof Gore-Tex Active Shell
  • Stretch panels and dropped rear hem for in-saddle coverage
  • Reflective elements for visibility in low-light conditions

My "Go To" MTB wet weather jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

At 5'7" 165lbs I always have issues figuring out which size to order. I like my outdoor clothing to have a closer tailored fit rather than a baggy appearance. The ALP-X 2.0 GT jacket is in my opinion a great cycling jacket but is sized a bit smaller than normal. I ordered a large (again I normally order a medium) and it is snug. As far as performance the Gore Tex is great for waterproofness and breathability. I used it to complete a solo two day C and O Trail ride from Cumberland, MD to Washington DC in January. It was basically freezing rain the entire two days (33-35 F). Completely miserable conditions. One of the few enjoyable moments...sort of...was the jacket did its job and kept me warm and dry. Definitely one of those occasions where the outerwear's performance against the weather was the difference between being able to complete the ride or not. Since that ride, the jacket has become my go to jacket for wet weather period...on the bike or otherwise. Very nice looking jacket, slim fit, pretty breathable, and most important keeps the rain out. The hood doesn't really fit over a bike helmet, so I wear it under the helmet and it does just fine keeping the rain out. A bit pricey but I would definitely recommend this jacket.

ALP-X 2.0 GORE-TEX? AS Jacket by GBW

MTB tour specific: Very lightweight, waterproof and breathable mountain bike jacket. It performs well in various weather conditions and riding levels thanks to its ventilation features.

Extendable "shirt tail" that snaps up, out of view, when not needed, and is the perfect length when it gets 'messy' outside!

Great jacket

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

Great rainjacket, not only for biking. The fit is athletic. Have XL. Fits my skinny body, I am 6,4, 180 lbs. Not to much extra fabric around the waist. Lightweight.

re: not just for biking...your gonna' love this...I am a avid gardener, too, and found a fantastic sale on spring bulbs to planted in fall; anyway, I ended up buying something like 700 which have to been planted like NOW! It was very windy and freezing cold with flurries...but the wind was the worst part. Didn't want to ruin my good down I ended up wearing this jacket, with the 'shirt tail' unsnapped for added protection as I had to crawl around on the ground for hours in the wind/snow/light drizzle...with layering underneath I was perfectly protected and dry without added bulk of a down jacket! And that drop-down shirt-tail really made a differenc, too!
Go Gore ALP-X 2.0...multi-tasking to the max!

Kept me dry in 2 solid days of downpour

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

I needed rain gear for a 240mi Durango to Moab 7 day ride and purchased this after reading tons of reviews on many different jackets. I knew I wanted a gore-tex (or similar) jacket to ensure waterproofness, and I was hoping to find a bike specific design.
This jacket performed BETTER than expected. It was super small and light-weight when rolled up in my backpack which made me very happy.
The last 2 days of our ride it was a complete downpour in 48 degree temps...the same rainstorm that later flooded Colorado after hitting us in the La Sal's outside Moab.
I was dreading riding in rain gear with fear of getting soaked and/or overheated inside the confined shell. To my surprise the gore-tex worked as advertised. Even though I was sweating and riding fairly hard I never felt wet on the inside, so it must have been breathing. The rain never penetrated the jacket and I was able to maintain a good riding temperature despite the conditions.
I'm really impressed with the latest generation of Gore-tex Active and I plan on buying the matching pants now!
Oh, and I agree with the difficult zipper comments, it's hard to get it started, but hey it was waterproof so I'll put up with a difficult zipper!

Just a note about the rain pants (to any who may not be aware)...they are very baggy from the knee down and will require a pants-leg band to keep the bottom of the pant leg out of the chain. I've found one by 'Deuter' that is excellent: it's a bit wider than most (but doesn't interfere or annoy), so it can hold in the material better. It also has a wider reflective 3M strip than most others. Average retail is about $11.00, special-ordered from your favorite bike shop.


@Debbie C above re: "...very baggy from the knee down and will require a pant-leg band..." Yes, they are baggy, but they have two (2) Velcro places sewn-in to cinch the Velcro ankle strap to; one in close proximity to the strap to simply snug them around a hiking boot or shoe, and the other much farther away on the side, almost around to the front, to really snug them around your ankle specifically for riding a bike! If you don't know its there, you might miss it, so look for it; you will be glad you found it, and used it! Great pants over my thermal knickers for really wet, muddy rides... ah, such bliss!

and...Now U Don't...

and...Now U Don't...

Actually rolls up tighter than this and fits even lower in the outsides pouch pocket, leaving still plenty of room for whatever else you may need to take along: extra jersey, shorts/ALP-X 2.0 rain pants, binoculars, camera, extra food, whatever! Love this rain-proof jacket, and the removable hood option!

Now U See It

Now U See It

"IFY" weather? Don't get caught without it; easily packs up and fits in the Osprey 14 pack. Too large for a back jersey pocket, but does fit in a hydration pack.

Totally packable & best wind/rain jacket

Here it is rolled up with room to spare in a Raptor 14 pack. Very light weight; I don't leave home without it (except when it's actually nice around here, I pack the Xenon jacket, a even lighter, windbreaker; but not waterproof).

Poor zipper

The jacket is built with good workmanship and quality material. But the zipper casts a big shadow on this jacket's longevity. I spent a good a minute or two in zipping up. I wonder if the zipper can last. I end up returning it.

Yes, I have this jacket ("2013") and the weatherproof, zipper can be a little bit of a @!# to work, especially with full-finger gloves on only because of the small size; (same zipper type on my *Lezyne seat bag); but N.B.D., if it helps keep the rain out, in my opinion anyway.

what is the length of this jacket in size...

what is the length of this jacket in size med and large? it does not specify in the sizing chart.

Best Answer

I checked the Gore web site, and they too only give the arm length and the chest measurements. So, I would recommend you go directly to and ask a rep.
I can say that my ALP-X 2.0 (women's of course) jacket is plenty long enough, especially when you unsnap the back 'apron' to cover up during rainy rides. Arms are plenty long, too.
"Fit" listed on the Gore site is: SLIM (but not tight).
*Suggest contacting Gore for the exact measurements. But buy here for the best prices and returns!
