    Details

    Like an impenetrable second skin.

    Gore Wear designed the Men's C7 Gore-Tex Shakedry Stretch Jacket with a sleek, body-hugging design, combined with Gore-Tex's Shakedry technology, which proves an impenetrable barrier from heavy rainfall and whipping winds. Instead of restricting motion with its form-fitting design, Gore Wear uses strategically engineered stretch panels with a honeycomb-like structure that conforms to your every move. Not only does it fit tightly like a race jersey and stretch where essential, but it benefits from a dropped rear hem that keeps flinging moisture from spraying your backside, especially when you're in the drops.

    Sitting at the heart and center of this waterproof jacket, Gore-Tex Shakedry repels heavy showers and thunderstorms from ruining daily rides and training sessions. What makes this technology stand out is the removal of a traditional jacket's face fabric, instead placing the waterproof, breathable membrane on the outside of the jacket. This way, the jacket will continue to bead off moisture as you ride through the rain, no matter how long your ride takes you in foul weather. Another benefit, Shakedry construction remains highly breathable, so you don't overheat or soak in heavy perspiration from the inside-out.

    Really really good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought on a whim, because I have a raging man-crush on Fabian Cancellara and he was wearing it so I had to have it. Have had Gore stuff in the past and had not been impressed with fit or function (despite fabric being obviously exceptional). They have finally sorted this out. This jacket fits PERFECTLY. Short in the front (so doesn't bunch up and chafe when you're in a riding postion) and nice and long in the back for great spray protection.
    It's sleek and fitted, warm, very waterproof and breathes as well as a waterproof layer can. Be careful what you layer under it to avoid greenhouse effect. In all though, a very warm, well fitted, well made, lightweight and low-mass jacket. This packs down smaller than anything else in its class. I worry about cutting the fabric as it's paper thing but so far so good, very impressed. Fits true to size and well worth the price tag.

    Actually Waterproof

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 152lbs

    The first day I rode this it was pouring rain, hail and snow. Crazy weather conditions I've ever rode my bike and I don't recommend it to anyone. I do on the other hand recommend this jacket, I stayed completely dry shook it off and went into the restaurant for lunch. Amazing.

    Then the other day I warmed up in the jacket, took it off and packed it into its storage pocket. Placed it in my jersey pocket and raced my bike! The added Gore Tex stretch panels make this jacket fit perfectly and are still totally waterproof.

    Buy this jacket now. It is worth it.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Extra Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    Definitely a must have if you ride in any condition. The Shakedry keeps you dry when it is wet outside. With the new stretch fabric this version has a better fit than than previous ones. Definitely more of a race fit and less material flapping in the wind. I find that it fits true to size based on the sizing chart. If you want it to fit looser size up. Great added feature is that it folds up into the rear pocket for easy storing on a ride.

    The Future Is Here

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This jacket is amazing.. first off the shakedry material is phenomenal, its exactly what it sounds like and if you have never experienced it you need to. This material is created to repel water, not coated or covered with some water repelling substance so unlike many DWR coatings this will never ever wear off or lose its ability to be waterproof. Secondly the stretch parts are also 100% waterproof (the army/military had gore-tex develop the stretch parts for wearing under bulletproof vests so you know it must be durable), and after learning about how many models were created to make sure the stretch areas were placed in the right areas (somewhere like 15 jackets with different variations of stretch in different places) this final result is AMAZING. I have long arms and have to deal with almost every jacket exposing my wrists as I reach for the bars. With this it stays put. Lastly this thing is ULTRA LIGHT and stuffs into its own pocket quite easily. I get its pricey, but when you add together a 100% waterproof jacket with superb breathability, gore windstopper, ultra lightweigh/packability features and a flawless fit? Well im in. Get ready to pack the features of 3-4 jackets into one. Like I said, this is the future of jacket technology.

    I am 6'1'' and 170 ish and needed a large. In this same build with a smaller chest/torso I could fit a medium but I found it too snug in the armpits.. So if you are a more slender build shoot for a M. A bit larger build in the chest/arms go L. (This is not me in the photo)

    The Future Is Here

    Sizing for Lady Riders

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'5"

    This model is a men's jacket however it can fit women too! I am 5' 5" and normally wear a medium in a jacket and a small in jerseys. However, I wear a Large in their Women's Shakedry Jacket and in their Women's Jersey's I wear a medium. With all of that being said I got the small men's Shakedry Stretch Jacket as that was the best fit around the waist where it wasn't too loose. The jersey fits great around the waist but has a little extra room around the shoulders. I have noticed in their women specific items I have to go up a size as they run small. However when buying the men's model it fit's true to size.

    Very Nice Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Very impressed with the fit and finish of this piece. I am very particular about riding gear/kit and this passes the test. Fits true to size, doesn't restrict movement, breathes well, keeps out the colds and water, and is great all-around. Descended a very wet downhill in a surprise snow storm in this after riding the previous hour in the rain, torso stayed dry and warm the entire ride. 5 stars, would recommend.

    Dry and light

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I wore the Gore C7 Gore Tex Shakedry yesterday during a Spring snow / rain storm and was SUPER impressed. My core stayed warm and dry while descending at 40mph in wet, sleety snow (wish I could say the same about my hands and face ...). More impressive, I didn't overheat on the climb up. The shakedry fabric kept the water out while breathing extremely well.

    Fit: Basically true to size. Maybe runs slightly large. I'm 6' 1", 180lbs with a 39-40" chest and long arms. The Large fit perfectly. I also tried on a medium, but it was too tight in the chest.

    The piece is very thin and packable and stows easily in a jersey pocket. If you have it on for a long time, it also has an ample, single zipper pocket on the back.

    All in all, very happy with it.
