Description

From long-sleeves to short-sleeves in two quick zips.

When it comes to winter, you need all of the protection that you're able to get. But what if that go-to winter jacket could also keep you covered in the fall and spring without causing heat exhaustion? A novel idea, indeed. However, Gore Bike Wear already beat us to it with its Phantom 2.0 SO Jacket. When the weather permits, you're able to wear it as a full jacket, but while in more temperate conditions, the sleeves are removable for the perfect amount of coverage — one jacket for every occasion.

To provide the utmost protection from the elements, Gore constructed its Phantom 2.0 jacket from a sophisticated blend of fabrics. Each region has been thoughtfully considered, and because of this, the Phantom 2.0 is equal parts protection, comfort, and flexible. Starting with the body of the jacket, Gore used its patented WindStopper Soft Shell membrane. As its name suggests, this material makes the jacket 100% windproof. However, the name doesn't allude to its water-resistance or high level of breathability. That's right, with the comfort and weight of a mid-layer, and the protection of a shell, this material keeps you dry from both the rain and your own sweat. And while the material is exceptionally malleable, Gore also incorporated integrated stretch panels into the Phantom 2.0. This permits a full range of movement, whether you're stretched over the hoods or reaching down into the drops.

If that's not enough stretch for you, Gore enabled you to remove the raglan-cut sleeves. But, that would be an extreme measure, as the detachable sleeves primarily add to the jacket's versatility. But with the sleeves removed, the Phantom displays soft, protective short sleeves that guarantee coverage from the elements. Now, you're able to stretch the Phantom 2.0 out over multiple seasons.

Going even further into protective design features, Gore included a zippered underflap at the rear hem to protect you from wheel-spray on wet days. And while this protects you from the weather, Gore also took steps to protect you from the hazards on the road. To do this, the jacket has been given reflective elements throughout to increase your visibility in low-light conditions.

To keep the Phantom from shifting, Gore included wear-resistant, elastic bindings on the sleeve hems and bottom hem. This particularly comes in handy when the jacket's three slanted rear pockets are loaded with all of your ride essentials.

The Gore Bike Wear Phantom 2.0 SO Women's Jacket is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/white, Neon Yellow/black, Rich Red/white, Waterfall Blue/rich red, and White/black.

Looks good & nice length

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Somewhat more snug than I'm used to, but the jacket moves with me, so it doesn't feel restricting. Not sure if I can wear 2 layers beneath as the fit is snug across the chest. I've worn it in cool, but not cold temps. I wish it did come 1 size larger, I am L-XL in jerseys with a curvy shape (large busted-36 DDD); XL was too small, so I exchanged for XXL. I initially was very disappointed that it was snug, BUT BC exchange policy is excellent. If you are normal bust size, the fit will be very good and comfortable. Sleeves long and tail long for great coverage; excellent yellow color & very visible!

Well made jacket

The item is well made, however, I had to return it because it was too short in the front for my long torso. I was pretty bummed because I really liked the way it fit everywhere else.

Responded on

Thanks for this review. I too have a long torso and would probably have the same issue.

Responded on

Ditto. The thought process (for most 'road-inspired' bike wear) is the in the cycling position, there will be less 'bunching' or restriction around your waist; and so when standing, the fronts of these types of jerseys/jackets are a bit short. I, too have a long torso/arms, and 'deal' with this same issue with the Xenon, Assos, and Giordana's FRC lines. Bibs will help with the 'coverage gaps'.

Food for thought : )

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love this jacket. I bought it in white, and it can't be missed. It is a perfect fit on my curvy frame, and I love the ability to remove the sleeves.
