Rated4out of5byjosephbrfromJacket Protects from the windThe jacket lives up to the expectations. It protects from the wind yet not thick enough to be a bother. The only issue is I wish it had a few more back pockets other than that I like it.

Rated4out of5byharrymurpheyfromHigh Quality Biking JacketExcellent Biking Outwear Jacket, Pedaled through rain,mud,cold temps and snow. Washes clean very easily, dries quickly. Very Stylish, holding up well ... needs a larger chest pocket to hold a "smart phone" or sunglasses or both ... went back and purchased same jacket in black/grey for "mud riding" ie:mountain biking ... using red/black for high visibility on road-riding ...

Rated4out of5byquisque4fromStops the wind but still breathesAlmost passed this by because the largest size in the store was XL. I have another Gore jacket (Xenon 2.0 shell), that is a rather snug fit in the chest, shoulders, and upper arms in XXL. Decided to try the XL on anyway because it was on sale. Apparently this is one of Gore's more relaxed fit items. It fit snug around the upper body, similar to the XXL Xenon, with a bit more space around the middle than the Xenon and than I need @ 6'2" 195 lbs.
Glad I did give it a try. I have 2 other Windstopper jackets by other brands, and this is definitely better at keeping out the wind while breathing well, minimizing moisture buildup inside. Kept me comfortable with a medium base layer in upper 30's/low 40's in 20+mph winds on 3 hour rides. Could use more or larger pockets, given that I tend to carry more extra protection as a precaution in the weather this is best suited for.

Rated5out of5byOakland RiderfromGreat Jacket for Cold RidesI have used this product for some colder days riding. Temperatures in the mid 30's to upper 40's. I wore a wool jersey under the jacket. It breathes well and keeps you warm. I really like the way this jacket fits me. The sleeves are very long and the jacket fits just nicely with good coverage of my wrists when I am on the drops. I am 6'5" tall at 170 lbs and a large fits really well. I would not mind if it was a bit longer in the back but that is not important when I am riding.
I got the dark color which was cheaper and the only one at the store, and that is my only concern when riding. However, I think the coat is really nice and the visibility may not be as bad as I think.

Rated4out of5byelyhimfromNoob ReviewJust bought this jacket to help in the winter months. Foggy/misty 45° 5am 15 miles in 58 minutes. Wore a polyester long sleeve under jacket and was very warm. I would say I would go thinner on underlayer if it was warmer. Top speed was 30 mph and made no difference. Water collects on exterior or jacket and I was not wet.
Jacket performs as advertised, I bought an XL and am 5'9" at 240. While tight on the gut it was fine, did not ride up and sleeve length was great.
Zipper is backwards though, made me boggle and almost returned. I'm glad I didn't.
