Power Lady Gore Windstopper Zip-Off Long-Sleeve Jersey
The Power Lady Gore Windstopper Zip-Off Long-Sleeve Jersey combines a fit that's more friendly to non-pro cyclists' bodies with the ability to strip the sleeves when cold mornings turn into bright, warmer afternoons. The jersey also leaves space for thermal layering, so on days when conditions get worse instead of better, you can add base layers and turn that breathable Windstopper membrane into the outer layer of a full winter riding setup. This versatility allows the Power Lady Gore Windstopper Zip-Off Jersey to take the place of at least pieces of a cold weather cycling kit: a thermal long-sleeve jersey, an insulated vest, and an outer shell when used with layers underneath.
The jersey's reputation for breathable protection from the elements boils down to its Windstopper membrane. The membrane is windproof, so it shields you from from wind chill and chilly air alike—this is especially important for cycling, where we're constantly generating additional wind chill depending on your speed. This is topped off with a DWR treatment that may not stand up to a downpour but is certainly equal to the types of showers that represent the wettest conditions we'd typically ride in.
The Windstopper panels are combined in a pattern that minimizes seams, reducing chaffing, baselayer abrasions, and the risk of water slipping in. An elastic, gripping hem and close-fit collar also do their part to maintain the seal against wind and rain, and reflective branding on the front and back add a bit of visibility while riding in low-light, overcast conditions. The detachable sleeves zip on in a raglan style and the standard complement of rear pockets are slanted on the side, both of which features help ensure your reach isn't restricted while grabbing a bottle or fishing for a gel.
