    Product Reviews
    C3 GORE-TEX Paclite® Hooded Jacket is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    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 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.
