Ride through the winter in a windproof softshell.
When the snow starts falling and the wind is howling it's easy to want to stay inside, basking in the melancholic glow of your TV, and the numbing indulgence of a glass of bourbon. Don't let the winter suck the life out of you, layer up and don the Gore Bike Wear Gore Windstopper bike jacket to withstand the gale-force-winds outside as you embark on a mission to save your sanity. Allow yourself to vigorously pedal through ominous clouds without worrying about where the nearest shelter may be, and instead embrace the near-empty bike lanes and paths that traverse your city. The Gore Windstopper bike jacket offers waterproofing backed with a durable softshell to provide insulation and warmth when the storm breaks. Gore-Tex's highly breathable nature maintains extremely efficient moisture wicking properties, so you don't have to bathe in perspiration that leads to cold-sweats and hypothermia in icy weather, or simply overheating if the weather is mild when you're pedaling intensely up trying climbs.
Slim enough to prevent excess fabric from flapping in the wind, but not so restrictive that you can't layer underneath, the Gore Windstopper makes for an ideal fall and early winter softshell. A Gore Windstopper membrane coats a midweight polyester softshell making the jacket all but impenetrable to water and wind, and a fleecy lining maintains a soft, brushed feel against your skin to keep you feeling warm. A high collar brings the fleece up around your chin for soft warmth that won't irritate or chafe your skin, and extended sleeves keep your wrists sealed when you're in the drops. Two back pockets offer the perfect spot to stow nutrition or car keys, and a front chest pocket is there for your phone, or any other essentials you want to keep close at hand. Since fall and winter days lend themselves to dwindling daylight, the jacket is equipped with reflective logos and a reflective band along the base to illuminate under the glow of headlights, boosting your visibility to vehicles in dim lighting to keep you safe out there.
