C5 Gore-Tex Active Trail Hooded Jacket
Be ready for all day rain showers and ridgeline thunderstorms with the Gore Wear C5 Women's Gore-Tex Active Trail Hooded Jacket. This trail-ready barrier from the storm is hungry to ride in Mother Nature's worst conditions, with a Gore-Tex membrane that shields you from sideways rain and whipping winds while you push through the roughest miles. Cut for the bike, it moves with you while you ride, so a storm doesn't result in a quick bail out to the car, and instead just means you'll be the first to get your tires on the tacky hero dirt once it passes.
Crafted with a Gore-Tex membrane, the C5 Active Trail Hooded Jacket keeps the wind and water where you want them — outside. This membrane helps keep water beading and rolling off, while actively wicking away moisture on the inside, so a long climb through punchy switchbacks doesn't leave you with cold sweat on the way down. The membrane is sandwiched between two layers of polyester, making up Gore's signature Active Fabric, keeping the shell lightweight and easy to toss in your hydration bag when the weather clears up. Active Fabric manages to maintain a softer and quieter feel than some other shells, so you don't have to hear it rustle constantly while you ride.
Cut for hours on the bike, the jacket has an active fit, with enough room for your favorite thermal jersey underneath, but not so much that it's flapping in the wind when you're barreling down the trail. It features a close fit collar that keeps air from sneaking down the neck, wave-cut ergonomic sleeves, and a hood to keep the elements out, with magnets that keep its fittings secure while you ride. The waist is equipped with an easy to use elastic draw cord to keep it cinched down during downpour, and the cuffs can be taken in with hook-and-loop tabs for a snug seal around your gloves. The back prioritizes visibility, thanks to reflective piping and logos, to help you stay seen when you're heading from the trailhead to your favorite local brewery for your post-ride pilsner and calamari.

Great jacket for the right person
- I returned this product before using it
- Runs small

Purchased this jacket for my wife. Great price for the quality. High quality jacket all around, but sleeves are short. Tried both small and medium and had the same problem. She normally wears a small. Additionally, the hood will not fit a helmet. Gore-tex came close with this jacket, but needs to make a couple of revisions. Not entirely sure that it was meant as a cycling jacket.

- I've put it through the wringer
Wore this jacket for a 500k, 34hour bike ride in the Pacific Northwest. Jacket held up so well through wind and rain. Fits true to size. I got a small and was still able to layer 2 base layers and an insulated vest. I loved the bottom zipper, making it easy to control body temperature. Reflective bits on the jacket were a very nice touch.

LK, will this jacket fold up to fit in a typical jersey back pocket?

*UPDATE* Two years later and this is still my favorite outerwear layer! I’ve used it in all seasons and environments and it has held up so well. It’s now been trekking in Nepal and through the Grand Canyon. Our local ski resort has switched to RFID for tickets/season passes and the pocket on the sleeve is PERFECT for getting through the readers. Cannot recommend this jacket enough!! I purchased this jacket as a shell to wear skiing. The cut is very flattering and sleeves are plenty long enough. I tend to wear small/medium in jackets, but went with a large so that I could layer. With a light down coat underneath, I was the perfect temperature. Very happy with this purchase so far.
