The weather report calls for a windy afternoon, but right now it’s just a steady breeze. Zip the sleeves off the GORE Bike Wear Women’s Alp-X Jacket and pull on the remaining WindStopper vest. Tuck the softshell sleeves into your hydration pack for when the wind picks up. This slim-fit jacket has a superlight mesh lining that slides easily over your jersey. Elastic at the cuffs keep the sleeves down and chest and back pockets hold energy gel when you go pack-less.

Excellent jacket

    I don't really like cycling in cold weather, but with this jacket it's not a problem. I went out in low 50s, high 40s and was plenty warm with this jacket plus a wool base layer. Only one complaint - the zippers are all very tiny and a little bit hard to grip, esp with gloves on, when you want to unzip the neck a bit or undo the sleeves. But other than that I'm very happy with this jacket.
