C3 Partial Gore Windstopper Tight+
Soldier through the shoulder season rides in comfort with the C3 Partial Gore Windstopper Tight+ from Gore Wear designed to keep those legs firing over while keeping the wind and water at bay so you can get in those late and early season rides. These tights use a Gore Windstopper membrane to block out harsh winds and form an effective barrier insulating you from the cold. Even the chamois incorporates Windstopper Cup protection at the front preventing frigid oncoming winds from causing discomfort. Additionally, the Windstopper material is also water-resistant and breathable and manages perspiration so you don't become a cold, clammy mess on the other side of the climb.
The lateral zip on the lower leg makes getting into the tights easy and one less barrier to overcome when getting ready for a chilly ride and the adjustable elastic waist with flat drawcord keeps the fit in check. Gore constructs the tights with flatlock stitching throughout to reduce the possibility of chafing. And while the Windstopper material is slightly thicker than typical lycra, Gore constructs pre-shaped knees so as to not interfere with your pedaling. Add in the reflective logos and the rear zipper pocket for essentials and you have a riding companion that will encourage you to pedal on when most have called it a season.

Love Gore.. Until These Happened
I don't think Gore understands male anatomy. These fit perfectly everywhere except the crotch, for which there is none. NONE. They were actually painful just to try on. I reached out to Gore directly, thinking I might have gotten a defective pair with a women's crotch region mistakenly sewn in. They gave me a dismissive template response. They then ignored my followup response. So while these were a perfect fit & match to their size chart in all other areas, apparently these were designed without a human male ever actually trying them on. Thankful for Backcountry's return policy, but really disappointed in Gore. I use the Gore Windstopper Base Layer Thermo Turtleneck, Gore Windstopper Thermo Gloves, and Gore thermal socks, and they are all cherished pieces of kit. I've always sought out Gore Tex materials in my hiking and other active wear because I know how well it performs. I could have easily moved on from this as just one bad item or poor design, but the dismissive nature of Gore's support has me seeking out other brands.
