    GORE-TEX

    Delivering maximum comfort and protection in a wide range of activities and weather conditions, garments made with GORE-TEX fabric are durably waterproof, windproof and very breathable.
    Even if the rain is pouring and you’re sweating our apparel keeps you dry. Guaranteed. This may sound impossible but in the GORE-TEX fabric there are billions of tiny pores that are 20,000 times smaller than a water drop but 700 times larger than water vapor. Rain is kept out while perspiration vaporizes, meaning you’ll stay dry no matter what. Nothing to it really, just cutting edge science.

    Product Reviews
    C3 GORE-TEX Paclite® Hooded Jacket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, could be longer and have better hood Bought this to replace my commuting jacket which was too sweaty to wear for any length of time. Commuting in Glasgow requires good waterproofs! Pros: - packs small - breathes reasonably well (much better than my previous jacket) - hood works under a helmet (see cons) - fits well (see cons) - is lasting well so far (12 months and no sign of wear) - front pocket is handy - his vis yellow is bright! Cons: - hood doesn't pack into the collar. I usually just stuff it inside the back of the jacket. - jacket body could be longer, my cycling jerseys hang out below the bottom of it and gets wet. - for the C3 range I was hoping for a more casual looking jacket I could wear off the bike. - pit zips would improve ventilation. - I wouldn't turn down a back pocket (if it as a mesh pocket inside the zip would double as a vent) Overall: it's not as well cut as the jacket it replaced, but worth it for the breathability of the Goretex fabric.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect MTB Jacket Recently bought this product with the poor weather on it's way. Lightweight, breathable and great quality. Stops the wind nicely and is of course super water proof. I'm 5ft 11 178lbs and went for a XL which fits perfect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful jacket Love the jacket - feel and quality appear good. Only reservation (having bought on-line) is that the photograph is misleading and the hood doesn't stow away neatly (who needs a hood on a cycling jacket anyway?). Folds up small but only just fits into a cycle jersey pocket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cycling rain gear! 2 months since purchase. Ride 5 miles nightly in c.40 min. Yellow highly visible for safer riding. Recently endured "Pineapple Express" 8 day rainstorm winds once @ 20mph. I am 68yo, 5'9" 165lbs. Bought L but wear up to 3 l-s T-shirts in "cold" & find that a little tight, arms esp., so might size-up next time. The hood is PERFECT for under helmet wear. Cuffs and hems tighten perfectly. I am perfectly warm & dry despite heavy rain and 8 min very heavy pedalling - which used to soak my undershirt. Can't be happier w. jacket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from should should be longer to protect shirt underneath it goes barely under the blet so shirt get wet at the bottom and then the entire shirt soak up contaminated by water also not ecofriendly other than good product

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice jacket, funny about the pocket I would have likes to have bought one of Gore’s Shake Dry jackets but they only came in black, or mostly black, or nearly all black so I opted for the hi-viz yellow of the C3 Paclite. It is a great jacket and seems to be really waterproof, tested by me during a mornings driving rain as I cycled through the Brecon National Park. It was superb. The thing about the only packet the jacket has is that my leather phone cover was decidedly damp after the ride. I had noticed this slight problem on a previous ride. But I don’t want to be picky, it is a really nice jacket, rolls up small enough to shove in a pocket and seems to be very good quality. The best waterproof cycling jacket I’ve so far been able to find.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for moderate to heavy rain I've been waiting for some rainy weather to test this jacket out. I got 40 minutes in moderate to somewhat heavy rain on a recumbent. Anything exposed to rain was soaked by the time I finished and I could wring the water out of my shirt. I'm sure this jacket is fine for light rain, but it sure doesn't keep you dry I'm heavy rain. The zipper is definitely part of the problem. As a recumbent rider that area gets fully exposed to the elements and has been a problem on multiple raincoats. This one will be returned and I'll have to keep searching for a better option.
