Gore Wear C5 Gore-Tex INFINIUM Thermo Jacket

The Gore Wear C5 Gore-Tex INFINIUM Thermo Jacket may earn its name from hurricane wind scales. The C5’s windproof and water-resistant membrane fend off heavy winter elements to keep you as comfortable as a kitten on a ranch porch in the summer, even if the weather looks more than a little hair-raising. Soft fleece runs on the interior to trap body heat in during cold weather riding, while Gore-Tex Windstopper blocks out wind that would otherwise penetrate lesser fabrics. The result is a fully mobile micro-climate that breathes well during intense riding sessions to keep your base miles training and racing calendar in top shape.

Gore Wear uses a slim fit to cut down on fabric flap at speed while still supporting the traditional three rear pockets so that you won’t have to unzip the front to find jersey pocket snacks. The rear zip pocket — which is becoming a welcomed standard on modern cycling tops — secures belongings and keeps them dry. An extended tail prevents rear wheel-spray from soaking your lower back and glutes, and stretch inserts are on board for freedom of movement in cycling-specific positions.

Nice jacket with garbage zipper

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 2"

I bought this jacket for fall/spring and some mild mid-winter riding, and it does that job well. Details like the cuffs and tail are well done, and it has a nice snug fit. My major complaint with this jacket is the zipper. It is a cheap plastic zipper with very fine teeth, and the teeth constantly catch the slide. Its only a matter of time before the zipper fails and I'm left with either an expensive repair or, worse, an unusable jacket. For the price of this jacket I would have expected better a better quality zipper. Disappointing product quality.

Perfect for Winter Riding

I've put it through the wringer

I've hated riding in the Winter but decided to do so this past year. This jacket is perfect for temps between 40-65°F. Of course, you'll feel warm towards that upper temperature range. Our rides started in the 40's and sometimes finished around mid-60's. Unzip to help cool. I never felt sweaty from the jacket. It does a great job pulling sweat away from the back. I was always surprised to pull my phone out from the rear pocket to see how much moisture was back there. With a great windproof base layer, I could probably ride comfortably in 30°F. The fit is perfect in a medium. In some brands I could go with a small. So I do think these run a bit small. If I put on any weight, I'd have to go to a large. I checked the sizing dimensions before purchasing and that really helped.

Gore C5 Infinium Thermo Jacket

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 9"

I bought a C5 Thermo a couple weeks ago and have tested it on two decently long rides. I wanted a windstopper jersey for dry days when my arms get cold with a thermal jersey, base layer, and gilet, for me days between 30 and 50F. I find in those conditions a full length nylon coat just doesn't breathe well enough, and a full soft shell jacket is just too bulky. I don't ride in the wet much and don't ride below 30F. With this jersey and the proper base layer, no gilet or arm warmers are necessary. I would consider this a late fall, winter, and early spring jersey, not a jacket. It's got rear storage pockets like a jersey and it's not really waterproof though would probably be ok in a light rain. I considered the Castelli Perfetto ROS long sleeve, this jersey's main competition. They both are around the same price and both use the Gore Infinium fabric which is a breathable windstopper. I tried on both the Castelli and the Gore. I believe the Castelli would breathe better due to a more breathable fabric on the back of the jersey. It is definitely lighter in total weight and stretchier than the C5. In those ways I thought maybe it was superior to the Gore. I prefer the pockets on the Gore, I like the 2 larger rear rather than the 3 smaller on the Castelli for accessing in cold weather with gloves on. The small zippered security pocket for keys and credit card on the Gore was a major thing for me, have to have that. Castelli does not have a zippered pocket and thus a deal breaker - too easy to lose a credit card when pulling layers or food out of a rear pocket. Fitwise, the Perfetto, as it is a Castelli, was way too tight for my 5'9" 180 pound build. Would have had to go up to XL or even 2XL to be large enough to layer under and sleeves and waist length would be WAY too long in those sizes. Fit on the Large Gore C5 was excellent for me. As a few other reviewers have noted, though, the sleeves are puzzlingly baggy. Everywhere else it is right on for a non super skinny Italian bike racer, normal sort of guy fit. I can wear nothing to a heavy weight base layer under it. The biggest criticism I have is I felt the jersey could breathe better. At 50F on a 100 mile day with some climbing I got a bit clammy and the jersey was a bit damp inside when I finished the ride. Even at lower temps I believe this would also happen due to the lack of breathability on the back of the jersey. Temperature range is always subjective depending on the individual, but for me 50 with a summer weight base layer was the warmest I could use this jersey. It could easily go below freezing with the proper weight base layer, and it seems to me that below 45 is where it would really excel. I ended up buying this jersey for the fit and zippered pocket. If the Castelli fits you and you can do without the zippered pocket, it may be a better option. The C5 is a great jersey but not perfect.

First Impressions and Sizing

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This jacket fits very tightly and I am very glad I sized up from a small to a medium. I generally wear small shirts and jackets unless they are cut like this jacket. With a Castelli base layer there is not much room to add another layer but that shouldn't matter! It mainly tight around my torso. The sleeves aren't restrictive at all and sizing up hasn't made the sleeves too long for me. This thing is definitely warm and windproof. On a cloudy/windy 37 degree day I was toasty and almost hot when riding aggressively or climbing. Riding downhill the jacket doesn't let a lick of wind through. I didn't get a chill which suggests its breathing well during the higher body temp climbs. So far it seems great and I am feeling stoked about it. Great first impression.

Perfect jacket; stains

Was super excited to receive the jacket which has been intermittently sold out in the orange color and size large. I was happy to see there was 1 in stock. Today I received it. Tags were already cut from the product and two black stains already on the jacket. Besides nasty black stains during covid times, this jacket is perfect. This jacket must have been a return. Noticeably been touched by someone else. It's a bike product I get it but still gross.

Really Great Jacket

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Athletic body, I'm not skinny, I go to the gym 3 times a week. Wore this jacket over my jersey and it fit perfectly. I purchased a large gore jersey and also purchase a large gore jacket and they both worked out with each other. The quality, the look, and very comfy while riding. Kept my body warm during 39 degree weather. Purchased in black and it looks great. Gore makes quality stuff, would recommend
