The ride must go on.
Bitter cold and grey skies have never stopped your group from heading out for your Saturday long ride. Unless you want to miss out on the fun (and the post-ride coffee), you'll need cold weather essentials like the Gore Bike Wear Men's One Gore Windstopper Pant to grab when the weather takes a turn for the windy and wet.
In addition to featuring Gore's venerable Windstopper construction, the One also comes lined with lightweight, hardworking PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Active. The synthetic fill establishes a lofted layer of warmth next to your skin on bitter, raw days, holding your own body heat next to your skin to keep your muscles toasty as you turn the pedals. On the outside, Windstopper takes care of wind and repels errant snowflakes and raindrops. This protection is offset with stretchy, breathable polyester panels interspersed in the design to allow for improved range of motion.
Along the inner legs, abrasion-resistant panels reinforce the pant against wear-and-tear from chain and crank arm contact, and reflective accents help promote visibility to motorists during the shorter daylight hours of late fall. Along the knee, Gore wisely adds subtle vents to increase airflow on days when the sun sneaks out to warm you up. Though it doesn't include a chamois, the slim cut of the One allows for layering without compromising its movement-mirroring fit.

- Q & A
Cold weather essential
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'10"
- Weight: 160lbs
At 5’10” 160 pounds, a medium was a great fit. Warm enough for the coldest of rides, the One Gore Pant is well made and ready for the snowy and grey skies. These pants make windy and wet conditions not as bad as they seem with the Windstopper membrane. The waste is semi-stretchy
The inner legs feature some extra tough abrasion-resistant panels to prevent damage from rubbing with your drivetrain, which I wouldn’t anticipate happening considering the slim fit around the ankle.
I found myself wanting a couple more features - more pockets and a chamois. I am a firm believer in more pockets = more better. In addition to the single rear zipper pocket, I think some front pockets could come in handy. And with no chamois, longer rides may cause some added discomfort. But, for the mountain biker or roadie gutting out some ridiculously long rides, there is room to throw a road short containing a chamois underneath to compromise.
For the commuter who rides to work or travels by bike no matter the conditions, definitely consider adding this to your arsenal. It is a mobile pant that will keep you warm no matter the conditions. No problem if a layer underneath is desired, there is room. It is a versatile pant that could be worn for the mountain bike and road disciplines as well.

Slightly Better than the excellent coat
- Fit: Runs small

Love the coat and the pants a little more. Why Gore vents in the knee area allow freedom of movement and venting. I am a sweater and most wind block fabrics don't breathe and cause moisture to run down my shins when doing hard efforts. I don't have that problem with these pants. Used them over a pair of summer bike shorts at 20 F and was comfortable.
